If I was looking for a mobile for a boys room, this one by Tom Schamp would get my vote.
Two days ago I had the pleasure to meet all of this year’s Shopify Competition winners. One of the winners, Ryan French, left a huge impression. He is a student at the University of Washington, majoring in Applied Computational Math Science and the inventor of the GameKlip.
The GameKlip attaches your Android phone to a PlayStation3 controller and allows you to use a real controller to play your games on your smartphone. I’ve tried it, it’s all kinds of fantastic.
Ryan has single handedly built this business and created everything himself; the clip, the packaging, the site and he even currently still ships the items himself.
If you are a buyer for a big retailer, please reach out to Ryan. He is currently looking for large retailers to carry his product. He deserves to be picked up by a big chain.
How adorable is this reusable Ice Pop gel pack ? Use it to soothe aches and pains or to cool your sandwich in your lunchbox.
I absolutely love this old-school ruler growth chart by Little River Designs.
I know for a fact that I don’t *need* these Fluffy Animal Wrist Cushion but I want to need one. Too cute.
IKEA came out with this incredibly adorable cardboard kids market stand. It’s a mere $15. Imagine the fun to be had.
I am all for multifunctional furniture like this kids ping pong table gone coffee table gone chalk board surface by Huzi.
A typeface made out of cats? I am not even a cat person but this is making my head explode: Helveticat. Congrats to Bethany Lesko, the designer.
The Uanyi backpack caught my eye. It comes with a box of assorted silicone pixels to get creative. Fun idea, right?
If there was an award for cutest kids building blocks, Wee Society would take it home! The Wee You-Things Blocks are a thing of beauty. I can’t wait to show them to my kids tonight and then, when they are in bed, prominently display them on our coffee table! These are too pretty to hide in one of my kids’ room!
Each set of blocks is created with replenishable basswood, printed with non-toxic inks and made by really nice folks in Michigan who have been making heirloom wood toys for generations.
Yay for well designed, and well crafted kids toys.
I truly love the concept behind this book: Big kids questions answered simply by truly great minds. A sample question would be: If you’re on a boat, with no food or water, what do you do? The answer is by Roz Savage, first woman to row three oceans. Or, Why is space so sparkly? Answered by Martin Rees, an astronomer.
My three year old, letter obsessed Tilo, is seriously in love with his Alphaberry by B. Toys. I am usually not a big fan of toys that teach the alphabet, but this one won me over.
Tilo’s recent obsession with everything ABC makes me want to splurge and buy this Wooden Letter Puzzle.
This German Vintage Rubber Stamp Set from the 70s is full of wooden stamps, each one being a geometric shape and painted in a solid colour. #wishlisted
