Spotted! Gorgeous Wooden Wonder Wagon Walker from Hape

We love a decent wooden toy – and I’ve fallen straight in love with this fabulous little walker from Hape. Not only because it’s so darn pretty and has a retro loveliness to the design with that cherry red edge. But also because it does this – That, right there my friends, is YEARS of play value. LONG after they’ve outgrown the walker they’ll ADORE having a trailer to pull things around in. To be...

Spotted! Just look at this fabulous ‘Enjoy The Little Things’ Bedding

We have been big fans of Vertbaudet’s bedding for years – they always feature cool, funky kids prints in strong colours with not a branded TV character in sight. The quality is excellent (my 10yr old is still using the duvet cover Vertbaudet sent her when she moved into a ‘big bed’. And still loving it, too.

Spotted – Flamingo Tumblers! *want*

Oh how I love these tumblers! When I was younger and greener I believed a flamingo on an item immediately made it a no-go kitsch area. But as i’ve got older, and my taste has refined, I’ve rather had a re-think and now I’ve a serious soft spot for a flamingo (personally I blame Gnomeo & Juliet). And these tumblers I spotted on the John Lewis site are just perfect, aren’t they? Imagine a long summer’s...

Spotted! Oh, How I Want This Brambly Hedge Armchair

When I was growing up, Brambly Hedge was a cherished source of joy and comfort. I have loved the stories ever since (and am only sorry I utterly failed to persuade my boys of their special charm), and will occasionally on a wet afternoon pull a copy off the shelf to flick through and reacquaint myself with the perfect illustrations, the mice and their Summer adventures or Poppy’s babies. Such perfect cosy domesticity –...
