it's not often you get beautifully screen printed toys suitable for babies that are lovingly made in the uk and ever so reasonably priced. the tails and legs are easy for little hands to grasp and each toy makes a different baby-pleasing sound. lovely.

i think that it's fair to say that anything giant sized and crafted from crochet is immediately pleasing. these giant apple and pear pouffes get extra points for their colourless subtlety (which isn't always easy to find when searching for oversized fruit shaped seating)...

ok, prepare yourself because this is a seriously clever bit of design, executed in a beautifully understated way...this plywood and wool cot not only converts into a junior sized bed (the plywood bit with the bars on detaches to leave the felt covered bed base) but once your child grows too big for the bed, the base flips over to become an ottoman. so simple, so clever, so beautiful. love it.

want to introduce a bit of a space theme into your kids room? want to do it in a super cool fashion? well you can't get much better than a glitter print robot floating through space whilst tethered to a retro looking rocket...(you just might need to use this wallpaper sparingly if you're on a tight budget!)

when is a wendy house not a wendy house? when it's a play-cave-rocket-type-thingy of course...this one is nicely non-twee and totally reversible so if you're not in a black felt sort of a mood you can just flip it around and opt for the woody foam look...
