We love everything about these wooden toys.  Kukkia have 2 collections, gg* have soft colours, finished with bees wax.  Kiko+ have bold colours and the pieces are unfinished, so children can feel the grain of the wood.  Children can have lots of imaginative play with these toys.  Love the coloured domino stars, which are numbered to also practice counting, or building up.  The little towns are adorable, there is also a London and Paris version.

Happy weekend x

Last week we were so lucky to be invited to Maggie and Rose for the morning.  Maggie and Rose is a members club for families located in the hearts of South Kensington and Chiswick, and if you haven’t heard anything about it before it’s essentially Mum and baby H E A V E N!  Every detail in the club is well thought out from the preciously decorative walls, the toddler friendly toilets, and there is even a cinema for when the kids are done playing in amazing pearlescent ball pit.

Our Lil’ Beans loved wondering around the little play village complete with a lovely play house, numerous ride on race cars, and a tree house that has a slide leading to the much loved ball pit.

After a long play we enjoyed a little lunch in the delicious cafe with our friends from Do the Dip. Upstairs at the Chiswick branch is the Village Nursery that is the sweetest school for children up to the age of 5.  They also host a variety of classes to attend to help the little ones explore their creative sides.  In the winter it can be very difficult to get your kids to release all that energy and Maggie and Rose have created a wonderful concept that we hope to see more of.

magnetic Tegu

While we were away on our hols, we saw these lovely magnetic building blocks by Tegu.  Founded in 2006 by brothers Chris and Will in Honduras (Central America).  They come in many size packs, car packs, building packs, and accessories like wheels.  Not cheap, but really well made and thought out in design.

pinata cake

Love this pinata cake!  It looks pretty and delicious, and kids would go crazy when they cut the cake and see the naughty treats inside.  I’m definitely going to be trying this for my older bean when it’s his birthday.
