Psst… Tattly is currently running a Stoop Sale! (Think the Brooklyn version of a Yard or Garage sale) Use discount code STOOPSALE20, it ends Sunday!
I simply love that this UFO looking toy is titled NON-FLYING saucer. Made me laugh. Crazy adorable!
My daughter is going nuts over the Tattly Candy Jewelry Tattoos we launched this week. The designs are by Julia Rothman and the unique sweetly scented fragrance was created in collaboration with Agilex Fragrances. Think light notes of vanilla frosting, candy corn, cotton candy, and all things sweet and delicious!
These bat balloons are the best! I am considering buying a bunch of them to decorate my stoop on Halloween! So much fun!
My favorite perk of running Tattly is that I get to collaborate with talented individuals like Christoph Niemann. Yesterday, we launched a new set with his designs, it’s called The Petting Zoo. And my kids are crazy for them.
And now you can wear more of his art on your skin. Enjoy!
Over on Picture This kids can draw their own fabric patterns, send in the designs and receive a custom cut-and-sewn dress in the mail. So much fun!
I will give this Summer Rolls recipe a try with my kids. Looks so good, and most of all, fun to make.
This coming Friday I will be taking the kids to the Swiss Alps for our yearly sausage-eating-fresh-air-breathing-family-hugging-summer-vacation. Ever since they were little, they have been getting gifts on the airplane. It has been one of my secret weapons to keep them entertained. Simple, tiny surprises, such as stickers, post-itnotes and washable markers, tiny puzzles, etc. They’d get one whenever they would start go stir-crazy. Even though they’re older now and totally capable to entertain themselves, they love the tradition of getting little surprises. They don’t know yet that I will be surprising them with Kikkerland’s Zip & Flip Pillows. It’s a night flight to Zurich so they’ll come in handy. I can already see their smiles…
A short video about the daily life of a NYC ice cream truck operator. Sounds like a hard job.

In order to better understand its e-commerce customers, Mailchimp started an online store. The concept is simple: They collaborate with creative people to make fun, unique products for good causes. First they started out with design-y socks, and yesterday they launched 4 pins inspired by some of their favorite Atlanta rappers. The one above gets my vote. My favorite part of this experiment is the newsletters they send out, documenting the challenges of starting an online store. All so familiar! Love what their doing! Also, T (6) and I got to visit Mailchimp HQ yesterday and look what happened!
I just got my hands on a ZigZag City Guide New York. It’s a guide made for kids. It comes with beautifully designed cards filled with fun facts, history, and activities to do. Also available in an edition for San Francisco, London, Rome and Paris. Really adorable! Can’t wait to show it to E and T.
I am continuously impressed by what Zach and his team are coming up with. First DIY and now JAM: online courses for kids. I wish this would have been around (and the internet) when I was a kid, growing up on the Swiss country side, *so* hungry to learn and connect with other kids. Can’t wait to see what other classes will be next! (Secretly hoping for a sewing class!)
Perfect proportions observed in nature often follow the theory of the golden ratio. Historically, artists, designers and architects have used it as a means of defining beauty in a theoretical rather than intuitive way. Use the Golden Section Finder, a pocket sized gazing device, to locate the proportional perfection in your surroundings. Totally going to use this with my kids, walking around the city!
