“Nothing says freedom like a kite,” and the special edition Bugaboo Cameleon³ Kite‘s geometric patterned lining is inspired by a kite’s familiar shape. The stroller exterior comes in a beautiful basalm green fabric.
The special edition package includes a muslin blanket with a subtle version of the geometric kite pattern.
You will be able to purchase the Bugaboo Kite Footmuff, bassinet, and sun canopy, separately. The stroller will be available starting in March.
I still love the Little People of my childhood and I feel that Manhattan Toy’s MiO Collection is the wooden, modern version. The collection has an adorable car and a bus and there’s a trailer that can be used with either one.
The flagship of the collection is the modern, modular dollhouse that is made up of sleeping, eating and working areas and comes with two people.
You can buy different modules separately like this sleeping set,
or the eating set.
Accessory block sets like the woodland with fox and skunk continue to expand creativity in play,
and you’d be amazed at the way you can use the camping set (think adding it to the trailer!).
I’d love to collect them all and can’t wait to see what new pieces are added in the future. So much fun!
I adore the Little People, Big Dreams series of books. It’s a beautifully illustrated set of biographies for youngsters with stories to inspire and heroes to admire.
The next title coming down the line is Rosa Parks, so look for that one as well.
Today you can get 15% off with the code 15OFF when you checkout.
It’s amazing how preschool teachers are able to manage each day with a classroom full of tots when you’re at home tearing our hair out with just one or two. How do they do it? A lot of it is routine and allowing kids to do as much as they can on their own. You can bring home that type of preschool routine and encourage independent responsibility with the My First Cubby from Little Partners.
With six open storage areas and hooks, kids will store their own belongings and will be able to transition more independently from home to going out and back to home again.
This doesn’t mean you’ll never have to tell them 20 times to put their shoes on, but at least they’ll know where their shoes are?

There is so much cool new stuff to show you from Ferm Living’s 2017 Spring/Summer Kids collection.
I’ll start with the big stuff, and work my way down from there. So last year, Ferm Living started to grow beyond home decor into furnishings, and this year the furniture has spread down into the children’s collection!
The Little Architect collection comes in 5 muted colors– Bordeaux, Dark Green, Dark Blue, Rose and Gray.
Shown with the chairs above is one of my favorite new pieces, the ABC Wall Deco. This is the most fun and kid-friendly woven wall hanging I’ve yet come across!
Also perfect for the nursery wall is this adorable Rabbit Mirror!
and Party Dinner Mats. These really round out the sets.
The new collection won’t be available until March and ships worldwide via their website. If you wait a little longer, you’ll find the pieces for US ordering on Clever Spaces.

Kartell is colorful and kid-friendly already, but Kartell Kids is finally coming our way with even more fun designs and products. Philippe Starck’s Lou Lou Ghost Chair is a child sized chair that’s been available alongside the regular Louis Ghost chair, but now you can find them with dinosaurs, hearts, suns and more printed on the back. There’s also a kid sized Tip Top table so you can put together an entire set.
My favorite new piece is the Discovolante ride on designed by Piero Lissoni.
Keep your eyes peeled for these new Kartell offerings. So far I’ve only found one online shop where you can order some of the items.
