DIY Fall Decorations

DIY Fall Decorations

Just discovered this lovely DIY Fall Decorations post over on the Style Files. Totally going to make some of these this coming weekend.



FiLIP is a locator and wrist watch for kids. Using the FiLIP app, you pre-program 5 phone numbers that your child can call. Your child can scroll through the 5 numbers and call the one they want with the touch of a button. Smart.

(Thanks Thomas)



Skootcase is every airport traveling kid’s dream come true. (It’s a suitcase and a scooter!)



BOT-L. Get it? Totally getting this for Tilo.

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.

Moon Night Light

I am slowly but surely developing a slight obsession for all things ‘moon’. This Moon Night Light is fueling the fire. (Also comes as Earth)

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

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.

This Hand Shadow Puppet Chart made me look. Tempted to buy one for the kids room.


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.
