Paper Toy Bag

Toy Paper Bag

This recycled Toy Paper Bag made me look. Probably not all that practical when it actually comes to storing toys, but it sure looks cool. Also available as paper and plastic bag.

I wrote about the adult version of the Ostrich Pillow in January of 2012. They now just released a kids version. I continue to be intrigued.

Mr. Tiger Goes Wild

Mr.Tiger Goes Wild

My son (3) has a new favorite book, it’s called Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, by Brooklyn based Peter Brown. The beautifully illustrated story celebrates individuality, self-expression and loud roars. Nothing wrong with that.

The coolest kid hoodie in town.

The Human Body

The Human Body, the first app by Tinybop is finally out. It was illustrated by the wonderful Kelli Anderson, who wrote an interesting blog post about the process.

The Human Body lets you explore a working model of the body. Every part is beautifully animated and interactive: the heart beats, guts gurgle, lungs breathe, the skin feels, and eyes see. Designed for kids ages 4+ to discover what we’re made of and how we work.

Do yourself (and your kids) a favor and download it pronto. It’s stunning. Stunning. Stunning.

Tinybop

Nothing gets me more excited than watching friends going from telling me about an app idea to launching it. My studiomate Raul and his Tinybop Team have been hard at work and are about to launch a series of educational apps, the first one is simply called The Human Body. The app, designed by no other than super-talented Kelli Anderson, allows kids to explore and interact with the human body, teaching them what we’re made of. The app is about to be released in 48 languages around the world and I am certain it will make huge waves.

I’ve had many conversations with Raul about what we consider a successful kids app. While we of course agree on smart interactions, beautiful design and all, we also agree that kids should be never exposed to touts for in-app purchases or any other kind of advertising. Raul promised that kids will neve be exposed to any of that in any Tinybop app. This deserves a YAY!

Get a sneak peek of the app on their brand new site and sign up for their newsletter to be the first to know when the app is ready to play.

I can’t wait to Tinybop!

I am completely smitten by this Caravan Divan by Kalon. It’s a kids bed and divan in one. Minimal, multipurpose furniture for kids? Winner! Also, it comes in 6 colors. #want

NYC Subway Tattly

MTA Subway Tattoos

Team Tattly is giddy over today’s long-awaited launch of the New York City Subway Set. We are working on collaborations with brands we love and we figured, since we are based in NYC, it would be lovely to start with a homage to the beautiful subway signage. If you want to know a bit more about the history of how the signage system came about, AIGA has a great article on this. And if you want to sport a Subway Tattly, head this way.

Pick Digicam

My seven year old is getting more and more interested in photography. This Pick Digicam might be a fun little camera for her to use on the go. Simply plug it into your USB port to charge or download images. Requires a Micro SD card which will give you hundreds of images on one charge. No batteries needed, works with both Mac and Windows!

Zoobean | Remarkable books for kids

zoobean

Zoobean helps parents find books that children can identify with (character background, age) or fits specific circumstances (bullying, death & loss, holidays, etc.). So, for instance, if you want to find a book about self-esteem that features African-American characters for a 4 year old, you can.

(thank you Matt!)
