This portable watercolor palette with built-in water containers makes me want to break out my watercolor equipment from art school again.
My family used to play hours and hours of Backgammon when I was a kid. This colorful set put a smile on my face. I would totally give this a home.
This floating bathtub disco light looks fun. Makes me wish I had an outdoor pool!
My 7 year old is completely smitten with Hix, a versatile new toy consisting of four soft, convertible cones made of elastic silicone rubber. Each cone transforms into four basic shapes which can be stacked and nested in a myriad of different configurations.
The Stampville rubber stamp set has what it takes to make your little ones feel like budding architects. Definitely marking this one as a fun birthday gift.
Any architect will tell you that, structurally, a triangle is the strongest geometric shape. Architect Kengo Kuma has taken this wisdom and rendered it into a playful and interactive building set. I’d love to play with these.
I have recently rediscovered my love for matches. And this Sliding Match Safe caught my eye.
What’s not to love about these colorful playing cards? They feature a full spectrum of colors on their face and a uniform black and white pattern on their backs.
(I discovered them via a comment in my blog post yesterday asking about what smaller companies should we be supporting this holiday season?)

Zuni Fellehner and Kirsten Fabinski are the creators of Kritzelbuch, German for Scribble Book. 80 lined pages to create designs in. I would love to have this during phone meetings as I am a notorious scribbler.
(I unfortunately couldn’t find it on their website, it might be so new it’s not up yet.) You can buy the book here.
Me asks kids 100s of questions about their feelings, their families, friends, school, and home, with words, pictures, photos, and sounds to create a vibrant, dynamic self-portrait.
Me aims to help kids build skills like self-awareness, social awareness, and emotional literacy. The app is based on research suggesting that the better kids understand themselves, the more able they are to be empathetic and understand others.
