Zip And Flip Bear Head Rest Black

Zip & flip pillow KikkerlandZip & Flip Pillow Kikkerland

This coming Friday I will be taking the kids to the Swiss Alps for our yearly sausage-eating-fresh-air-breathing-family-hugging-summer-vacation. Ever since they were little, they have been getting gifts on the airplane. It has been one of my secret weapons to keep them entertained. Simple, tiny surprises, such as stickers, post-itnotes and washable markers, tiny puzzles, etc. They’d get one whenever they would start go stir-crazy. Even though they’re older now and totally capable to entertain themselves, they love the tradition of getting little surprises. They don’t know yet that I will be surprising them with Kikkerland’s Zip & Flip Pillows. It’s a night flight to Zurich so they’ll come in handy. I can already see their smiles…

Very Serious Poll

Fun Times Guaranteed with the Super Set

Super Set

The Tattly Super Set is a tin can filled with our 100 most popular temporary tatto designs. It’s been my secret INSTANT FUN BUTTON for the last 5 years! My friends and my kids know, I carry one with me at all times. Let me tell you, its contents can turn any boring meeting around. A playdate gone sour? I pull out the Super Set and giant waves of smiles flood over everyone involved! A boring dinner party? I pull out the Super Set and even the most reserved dinner guest will eventually find a good spot to slap a Tattly on. IT WORKS!

Basically, every aunt/uncle, grandparent, boss and college student should own a Super Set. And yes, friends have invited me to dinner and then texted me the day of, gently asking, ‘You’re bringing your Tattly Tin Can, right?’ Whatever gets you to be the popular one, right? FUN TIMES GUARANTEED!

Children’s Drawings Gone Jewelry

Tasarım Takarım (I Wear Design) turns children’s drawings into fine jewelry, translating the doodles into small pendants made of silver or gold. Totally doing this.

A Floating Hot Tub

The HotTug is the world’s first wood-fired hot tub that you can bathe and “sail” in. Float down a river in the middle of winter, sipping a cold drink and soaking in the steaming hot water! SO FUN!

Tinybop: Skyscraper

The fine folks over at Tinybop launched yet another wonderful app: Skyscraper! It allows you to playfully contract your own skyline of buildings, send people up and down in elevators, spark a blackout or clog the toilet, fix a pipe or put out a fire and so on! The app was beautifully designed by Berlin-based illustrator Mike Ellis.

Superhumans

This trailer for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games is an ode to human resilience and willpower. Definitely showing this to my kids tonight!

Food Fortunes

Food Fortunes

Food Fortunes is a take on Tarot and makes divining the sacred mysteries of “what’s for dinner tonight?” a snap. Simply lay the cards out three at a time and voila—a meal appears, a vision from the spirit realm. Food Fortunes can be played alone or with hungry friends to give apathetic appetites a mystical nudge in the right direction. Made me smile.

tabtag – Glowing & Reusable MacBook Stickers

Every time I grab my MacBook and see our custom CreativeMornings tabtag, it puts a smile on my face. I am usually not someone that would E-V-E-R put a sticker on anything I own, but the concept of tabtags won me over: They are glowing (!) and reusable MacBook stickers. You can remove them without a trace and reuse them over and over. SO MUCH FUN!

Chose from their huge archive of designs or make your own.
