"A bit lost"

While on holiday in the States, I spotted this book and fell for it… hook, line and sinker.  I also found a lot of other hugely wantable stuff which isn’t available here (boo hoo!).  But back to this fab book which you can get here (hooray),  ‘A bit lost’ is all about a little baby owl who can’t find his mama.  It’s a story so sweet, dotted with humor and embellished with fantabulous drawings in the most solidly vibrant colours.  Written by Chris Haughton, an Irishman with bags of talent and creativity, ‘A bit lost’ is a new book so hot, it’s definitely on my book list, my gift list and my any other list I can think of.

A Bit Lostcomes in hardcover, costs £7.29 with free delivery and is perfect for 2 years +.

Finn the musical fish

November 26, 2010

"musical fish mobile"If you’re looking for a mobile with a difference, then check out Finn the musical fish by Esthex.  Hang him above your babies cot or change mat, pull his cord and he’ll let out some gentle tunes.  Made of wool felt in bright colours, Finn is quite the quirky little fish.  He comes with a loop at the top making for easy hanging, costs £18 plus £3.95 delivery.  And if you’re already sorted in the mobile department, then gift him to another newbie for a pressie that’s definitely unique.

DwellStudio Bibs to go

November 25, 2010

"DwellStudio bibs to go"

By now you’ve probably sussed that I’m more than a bit keen on Dwell Studio, the American lot who create uber modern style for babies and kids.  So naturally I was just as keen when I chanced upon these bibs to go.  They come as a tear off pad of 20 bibs, fab for when you’re out or on your travels.  Complete with a cool signature Dwell graphic on them, so no need to compromise on style when you’re on the road.  They cost £5.30 plus £2.75 delivery and are suitable from newborn till 3 years.   They’d be super handy if you’re planning on traipsing around the country anytime soon (think no washing).

"Christmas Paper Angels"

When I spotted these paper angels the other day, I fell badly in want.   They’re so sweet and stylish and check this: in a set you get blondes, brunettes, redheads and even black and white angels.  Liking the diversity!  To make them up all you have to do is pop them out and slot the wings together, a job best done by your pre-schooler.   Then adorn your tree with these pretty little things or use them as place names on the big day.  The angels are 10cms tall and cost £9 for a set of 7 from hen & hammock.  For some more crafty paper decorations, check out these rather lovely Christmas creatures.

"Stella McCartney Kids baby bodysuits"If you’re a frequent ebabee likes visitor, you’ll know that Stella McCartney Kids launched recently.  Since then, Stella’s got new stuff popping up all over the shop.  The latest are these baby bodies.  In organic cotton with a simple little owl or hedgehog embroidered on, the baby grows come in sizes from 1 to 24 months.  No fuss, no frills just sweet n’ simple style… the best kind!  These Stella McCartney baby bodies cost £26 for the pair, come in a presentation box and would make a  gift that’s so sweet.

"Robin and Mould Owl Cushions Soft toy"

Just seen: these oh so, so sweet owl cushions that double up as hug-able soft toys.  It’s the giant, sleepy eyes that have me hooked.  They’re by British duo Robin & Mould and made in Wiltshire.  Hand screen printed in mustard or teal with little felt feet and wings.  These owl cushions measure 25 x 20 cms excluding feet and wings, cost £20 each plus £4.45 delivery.  Pop one in your kiddos cot for a super sweet accessory.
