David Laferriere has been drawing illustrations on his kid’s sandwich bags since 2008. While he won’t win the go-green award, he sure deserves the creative dad of the year award. Made me smile! Make sure to see the entire Flickr set.
Hopscotch is a brand new iPad app that teaches kids coding. It allows them to create an interactive program on the iPad by dragging blocks of code and dropping them into a scripting area. No typing required. Beautifully designed! This makes me so happy! Can’t wait to try this with my daughter tonight!
I was expressing how much I respect Neil deGrasse Tyson to my team this morning. I ended my admiration-rant in saying “I wish I had a Neil deGrasse Tyson doll!” which prompted Bekka to swiftly Google just that, and five minutes later I had a paper doll of Neil with two outfit options on my desk. I love the internet, so much.
IKEA came out with this incredibly adorable cardboard kids market stand. It’s a mere $15. Imagine the fun to be had.
I am all for multifunctional furniture like this kids ping pong table gone coffee table gone chalk board surface by Huzi.
Distance to Mars illustrates quite beautifully, well, you guessed it, the earth’s distance to Mars.
I truly love the concept behind this book: Big kids questions answered simply by truly great minds. A sample question would be: If you’re on a boat, with no food or water, what do you do? The answer is by Roz Savage, first woman to row three oceans. Or, Why is space so sparkly? Answered by Martin Rees, an astronomer.
The 0.99$ I spent on MaddieCam on Sunday have already paid off a hundred times over. Haven’t had this much fun with an app in a while. Maddie is the famous internet coonhound that stands on things and now, you can put her on anything you’d like, thanks to MaddieCam.
Yes, I am a fan.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is a vintage carseat. I admit, it made me laugh. As a parent of two, and having researched a lot of baby gear, I enjoyed this post over on Mental Floss titled: A Brief History of 7 Baby Basics.
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!
