Ostrich Pillow Light

I just had the pleasure to meet one of the co-founders of Switzerland based Studio Banana. Key Portilla-Kawamura is one of the forces behind the wonderful Ostrich Pillow and now it’s smaller brother the Ostrich Pillow Light, pictured above. These pillows are made in a small town in Spain and revived a dying factory. What is not to love?

Key also gave a CreativeMornings talk in Geneva a year ago. Yay for smart creative people making cool stuff. And yay for the internet connecting us all.

Sugru Magnet Kit

Sugru introduced their first ever sugru kit: It comes in a small tin. Inside you’ll find three packs of sugru (2 for your magnet projects and 1 spare). Below them, nestled in some cleverly cut cardboard, are four fantastic bespoke neodymium magnets. Also included is a great little booklet full of tips and tricks! Those Sugru folks, brilliant, as always! Check out their magnet-kit page for ideas on how to use it.

I just got a personal hand-delivery of one of the first OTO Cardboard Ice Cream Trucks by no other than the inventor, Måns Swanberg, himself. (I wrote about the Kickstarter back in March.) If you’re a parent of a little one, you might want to bookmark this one. You can even create a custom plate in your kids name. Totally adorable. My kids will be giddy when they get this for the holidays. A total winner!

UPDATE: Måns just emailed me with a discount code! Use SWISSMISS at checkout and get 10% off.

Team Tattly took it for a spin, 5 minutes after arriving at Tattly HQs. of course. And, I took over a shift as well.
