Children’s Accessories

Fundamental Party Collection

Hats off to you, Meri Meri, for providing a science-themed party kit for all of those parents beleaguered by the not-so-great current offerings at the local big box store. However, why is the Fundamental Party Collection only in the boys’ section? Grumble, grumble. It could be under the ‘general’ category, or a gender neutral section, couldn’t it?

Kid O Beach Tools

If I say ‘beach’ and you say ‘sandcastles!’ then you probably need to investigate these tools by Kid O. Yes, they’re for kids, but you can use them too. You and your little ones can shovel, sift, and rake using the Triplet Toy Shovel and Rake (pictured above/below), or dig and sift using the Scoppi Toy Shovel. There’s also the Ballo Toy Water Bucket with a spherical shape for easier transport from sea to sandcastle.

SipSnap

Whether you’re a parent or not, you can probably recognize the genius in these SipSnap silicone tops. They make any drinking cup spill-proof, so simply stretch them over whatever glass/tumbler you have at hand and let the kiddos roam free. BPA- and Phthalate-free, they’re available in either a spout (SipSnap Tot) or straw version (SipSnap Kid). Currently a Kickstarter campaign, you can pledge $18 to receive one of the first sets of 3.

Feed Your Dreams Piggy Bank

Smart! Here’s a piggy bank that helps kids grasp the idea of “fullness” when it comes to their savings. Instead of rattling around a breakable ceramic bank, this felt bank allows kids to feel how many coins are inside and thus understand the concept of volume. Also, if you’re handy with a sewing machine, consider it for your next DIY project.

Fine Little Day Baby Blankets

Soon-to-be parents, relax, and don’t worry about finding the right sort of baby blanket, because Fine Little Day has it covered. Irregular dots (or little mountains) scattered about is just the thing for your little one’s room, and they’re refreshingly gender neutral, meaning that her or his not-quite-developed eyes won’t be drowned in an overwhelmingly pink or blue color scheme. And, if you’re not a parent yet, or don’t plan to be, just quietly spread the word that kids shouldn’t be subjected to this, ever.

Ruler for Measuring the Growth of Human Beings

If you have kids, or are friends with people who have kids, you know those kids grow like weeds. What better gift to give them than a Ruler for Measuring the Growth of Human Beings? (Call it what it is, right?) Made from birch plywood, each ruler is individually screen printed by hand in two colours. As it is from Rob Ryan, a nice little poem threads throughout the imagery.

Wee See DVDs

These dvds are intended for a baby’s developing mind and vision, though if you take a look, you might find your very own self attracted to the black and white animations and accompanying music. Basic shapes move slowly and methodically while maintaining a sense of playfulness that borders between entertainment and meditation, which seems an unlikely sort of mix, but there you go. If you’ve got a little one, it wouldn’t hurt to try it out. Here’s a list of stores or you can order directly through Wee See.

Created by Rolyn Barthelman.

Akanbe Folding Basket

A basket that becomes a rug…you can’t say that for all those wicker versions out there, but you can for this little guy. Seems like it would be really handy for toting around a little one’s toys and miscellany; unfold it and it becomes a play surface, fold it back up and it’ll corral everything all over again.

A cute basket made of felt (polyester 80%, rayon 20%). It has a cute face, but it’s sturdier than it looks! Spread it out and you can use it as a mat/sheet/rug as well. This Akanbe Folding Basket has many uses: arranging magazines, storing children’s toys, shopping, outdoor picnic and much more.

Package Size: 47cm x 3.8cm x 47cm
Mat/Rug Size (when open): 1050mm x 1000mm x 3mm

‘Got Milk’ LED Lamp

This is pretty neat (and cheap!).

A glass that looks like it is filled with milk, but in fact, the inside has a special coating that lights up when you flip the switch. Now, you only have to flip the switch once though, because if you don’t want it to be on anymore, just turn it upside down and voila, it’s off… Perfect for a nightlight, or next to your bed or in the bathroom, or for the kids or – you get it, there are a ton of usage occasions that you can come up with.
