A supercool dad hacks Donkey Kong so that his three year old daughter can play as Pauline and rescue Mario. Made me smile.
Tilo’s recent obsession with everything ABC makes me want to splurge and buy this Wooden Letter Puzzle.
The Diver is a short short narrative about a diver in red speedos. Congrats to James Lancett and his collaborator Sean Weston
While visiting NYC last week, Christoph Niemann stopped by Studiomates and I got to see his brand new kids iPhone/iPad app called Petting Zoo. At the time he had just submitted it to the App Store, but it is live now! YES!
Interacting with Petting Zoo made me laugh, squeal and giggle. Yes, it’s *that* much fun to play with. Trust me, download it, and laugh away with your little ones (or alone). I can’t wait to show this to Tilo tonight!
A lovely Woven Heart Card Tutorial over at MiniEco. Ready for Valentine’s day this Thursday?
How about orange created a charming DIY to create a wall of paper hearts. Valentines day is just around the corner, folks!
One of the best things about attending a gift fair is to meet the founders behind products I like. Take Eco Kids for example. I already liked their products but meeting the founders, Kip and Cammie sealed the deal. My loyalty to a product or service grows exponentially when I share the same passion and outlook on life with the founders. Their products are all made in the US, eco-friendly and non-toxic.
Want to send some small Valentine’s notes that go beyond just a card? Consider the Valentine’s Tattly Multipack: The set contains 24 cards, stickers and Tattlys with four different designs. My daughter used these in school last year and scored some major points.
I wish I would have known about Chewbeads when my kids were little. It’s jewelry that looks cool but is also ok to chew on for babies. I saw them across from our booth at the NY Gift Fair yesterday. They’re minimal, and stylish, I would wear them now, even though my kids are over their teething stages.
Chewbeads are 100% Silicone and made with non toxic ingredients and are dishwasher safe.
I have no idea if my kids would actually enjoy playing with this string sheep, but I sure wouldn’t mind having it lay around in the apartment. Pretty, no?
If there’s one thing kids are completely obsessed with, it’s straws. Now, these heart-shaped straws would push my daughter completely over the edge.
