Jacques and Esther: New from blabla kids for Spring 2015

Two hippos are joining the blabla knit dolls collection this spring– Jacques the blue sailor and Esther the purple bathing beauty (at least that’s how I’m going to describe her).

Jacques and Esther

You KNOW I’ve got to be partial to Esther, even though she’s a hippo, because we Esthers have to stick together!

There’s also this adorable collection of new roly poly family rattles. I’m gonna call the little blonde one Esther too. I think we’ve got a strong resemblance.

Invisible Creature Modern Barn Blocks

One of my favorite creative toy brands is Invisible Creature. They have done collaborations with Odd Galaxy, Uncle Goose (Stack and Scare Blocks), Super 7’s Wormwood, and now (thankfully!) again with Uncle Goose with their addition of the Barn Blocks.

icreature1

The Invisible Creature Barn Studio blocks create a replica of a barn 30 miles east of Seattle. The barn was originally built for horses in 1964, but was remodeled for use as an artist studio last year. The blocks were made by Uncle Goose, and depict all kinds of creative and fun prints on each side. Can you spot the Eames rocker?

I love the whimsical pictures on each side and the concept of using the blocks to build one specific building (among many creative free-play uses). My toddler son would have a blast using these blocks, and I have to admit that I would love them just as much as him. These are going on my next wish list for upcoming holidays.

Heritage Balance Bike from Loll Designs

Any little ones you know resolving to learn to ride a bike this year? My younger one has yet to reach this milestone so we need to get to work on that asap! From the experience of his older brother though, I can tell you that learning to balance before adding pedals is the perfect way to master the two wheeler. Training wheels are so 1980-something.

Loll Designs partnered with Heritage Bicycles to create this little beauty out of recycled plastic. It features 12″ wheels, adjustable seat height and a Heritage medallion. Choose one of 10 colors. $260

You can also get a Bennett Balance Bike, which is the wooden version, for $300.

Jess Brown Doll Furniture

If your girls are lucky enough to have a Jess Brown doll to treasure, their precious friend might need a home that’s equally beautiful. You can find a Doll Furniture set by Jess Brown at Anthropologie. The Bed and Armoire are sold separately for $298 each. The armoire includes five outfits and their hangers.

The bed comes with a pillow, comforter and quilt.

How I would have loved this as a child! It’s the type of plaything that will one day be saved up in the attic for future generations.

You can also order a custom bed or armoire directly from Jess Brown Design for $198.
