My 4 year old son is completely obsessed with pizza. So much, he wants his upcoming birthday party to be pizza themed, inspired by the Secret Pizza Party book. Being a good mom, I am doing pizza research and stumbled upon this pizza slice sleeping bag. Made me laugh.

This see-saw table, De Tafelwip by Marleen Jansen, should make for interesting dinners. Also, it will prevent you from ever eating alone. Made me laugh.

Tinybop Homes

Team Tinybop has been hustling: They just launched their third app, illustrated by Tuesday Bassen, called Homes.

It allows you to explore four unique homes around the world, from NYC to Mongolia. Wander in, cook, and play. You can investigate the utilities but watch out for wires spark and tubs overflowing…

The best part, you’re totally allowed to make a mess! Or clean up, with help from a curious cat. What I love the most is that you can personalize each space with your photos and drawings; see yourself in mirrors.

I love the Human Body and Plants, but Homes is definitely my favorite Tinybop baby so far. Try it!
