I am in love with these mini model sets by Australian husband and wife team McKean Studio. All the products are about travel and cities, aswell as these mini handmade, hand painted sets, they produce bangles, scarves, prints and domino sets.
I’m totally after a Palm Springs set (and the dominoes) especially as we were there last month. A good excuse for some memorabilia I think.
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.
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.
Shusha toys was founded when a young couple with background in design, wanted to create some special wooden toys whilst waiting for their lil’ one to arrive. All the toys are made in Russia, and are the some of the nicest modern wooden toys we’ve seen in a while. The wooden faces from Shusha are great, somethings are made for keeping.
Swedish company Little Red Stuga have lots of lovely products for children. At the moment we like these peekaboo blankies. They come in a teddy, lion, indian and pirate design. All small children love a game of peekaboo and dressing up. They also have lovely mountain beanbags, rugs and much more. We love it all!
