I don’t get to talk about the amazing baby stuff from Freshly Picked because we don’t cover apparel items, but their new Spring 2015 apparel collection has two amazing child backpacks, so I’ve got two great excuses to send you in their direction…
Get these limited edition beauties as well as the rest of the Spring 2015 collection before they sell out– I suggest today just to be safe! $30 each
Wooden toys are typically the choice for design-snob parents (and I mean that in the kindest way possible), but Kid O has elevated plastic toys to an irresistible level. Their newest products are terrifically tempting.
Take a look at the entire 2015 collection.

shopping guide: kids furniture table and chair set toddler

In my son’s toddler room, he had a bed, a bookcase and a play table with chairs. While I bemoaned the constant pile of crafts and activities that cluttered the table top, for him, the play table was his home base. Half-built Lego sets and nearly finished comic strips waited patiently for him, undisturbed by tidying in other parts of the house.
When I put together my nursery inspiration boards, I don’t usually have the room to add a play table and chairs. While this is fine for a baby’s nursery, once that baby becomes a toddler, the table and chair set might become more of a priority. It’s easy to update a nursery for the toddler years, and today we’re going to fit a little play space into some of our favorite nurseries.
The Sprout Modern Kids Table and Chairs are easy to assemble in just a couple minutes with tension lock tool-less technology. The table-top is spacious and both table and chairs can hold up to 150 pounds. They are made in the USA from recycled pre-consumer fiber and come in several fun modern colors which make them perfect options to customize your growing toddler’s space!
Thanks to Sprout for sponsoring this post and giving me the opportunity to revisit some older designs and show them updated for the toddler years. It’s amazing how quickly your little ones grow up, but the Modern Kids Table and Chairs will last you until their pre-tweens.
In a world full of teepee style play tents, these designs from Joyjoie stand out with their bold and fun designs.
My favorites are the ones with the woods build right in!
And then the peeking animals are really dramatic.
These ship worldwide from Sydney, Australia. Check them all out in the Joyjoie etsy shop!
Two new crib bedding designs just made their debut at DwellStudio. Pieces are sold separately and right now you can save 10% when you buy 3 or more baby bedding items from the same collection.
The first new collection is Boheme, featuring a coral, saffron and gray floral and bird pattern.
Then they also have the beautiful Caravan collection featuring rhinos, elephants, walruses and more.

the Alexandra quilt set,
…and the Hicks quilt set.

After the diapers, carseat, layette and sleeping quarters are set up, the most important thing to have is a great collection of books to help develop language and a love for reading.
