leave a comment
The colorful modern pull toys from Studio Delle Alpi make spectacular gifts.
Five designs are available: alligator, giraffe, turtle, bunny and horse. I’d just find it hard to pick just one. $65
Okay fine, this Florida girl would pick the alligator!
If I have to think of brands with modern bath toys, Boon is among the top on a very short list.
Jellies, suction cup creatures that stick to the tub, wall and each other,
Boon, the light up diver,
Tones, musical bath boats that hook together,
and my favorite, Cogs, which stick to the wall and spin when water is poured on them.
I bet you can’t wait for bath time!

I’m going to go a little further abroad here than usual and tempt you with this amazing creation from Il Mondo Di Eve.
The Little House can be purchased in a number of configurations but the most incredible is this oven and sink combination play kitchen. This is the most expensive option and will set you back €850 (about $930) but they do ship to the US from Italy.
For now, let’s just admire it and add it to a Pinterest board or two.
Following up on his ArcheToys for Magis (I wish I could collect them all!), Floris Hovers has a set of wooden vehicle blocks that are as wonderful to create and play with as they will be to see in a museum one day.
Made from solid beech, CARtools from Magis, are part blocks, part puzzle and completely a work of art.
Just add these to my wish list. Yes, I said MY wishlist. My boys have plenty of toys of their own to play with.
While I always thought the indoor slide from Ikea was an attractive playroom addition, the Lovely Kids Slide from Jupiduu is the new crown jewel of your child’s play space.
Available in several colors, the Lovely Kids Slide is made of wood and… well, it looks really good on Instagram!

It’s one of the most beautiful play kitchens they’ve carried in a long while. Pottery Barn Kids stays on trend with kitchen design for the little ones and the Chelsea Kitchen will be at home in the most exquisite kitchens out there. Just google “gray gold kitchen” photos and see if you’re not inspired!
The Chelsea Kitchen includes three pieces that can be purchase separately, in pairs or as a set of three ($870).
There’s also the Chelsea All-In-1 Kitchen with all the pieces for just $450.
I’d order this asap because you never know how long they’ll carry this style.
Teddy Bears are typically traditional but the bears from Woodland Tale are seriously special.
In size order from biggest to smallest I’m in love with them all…
Made in Ukraine, these burly bears are full of embroidered personality.
