"baby jodhpurs"

I went to the shops this morning.  It was mostly uneventful, boring even, until the moment I spotted these uber-stylish baby Jodhpurs.  Exactly like a pair of Jodhpurs but a shrunken version.  How cool is that?  Just picture your  2 year old strutting around in these.  Add a pair of boots and you’re going to have the hippest baby on the block!  They’re from Zara in sizes  3-36 months and they cost £9.99 plus £3.95 delivery.  And if you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know that Zara now sell online.

Checkout our look at Zara’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection for the bambinos.

"Plan Toys Beehives"

I’m a-buzz with playful, cheery happiness.  Who wouldn’t be looking at this bright and beautiful wooden bee toy.  It’s a collection of boldly coloured bee-hives with matching bees from Plan Toys’ new 2010 range.  Grab the included tweezers and match the bees to their hives.  Kids will learn colour and co-ordination in a super fun way.  I feel happy just by looking at this colourful toy.  The Beehives from Plan Toys costs £16.95 plus £4.95 for delivery.

"Brio Sleep Cotbed"

I wanted to get a quick post in about these divine cots from Brio.  The Brio Sleep Cotbed, like much of what Brio offer, is hot property!  But sadly they’re not going to be around for much longer.  So think of this as a farewell note to a nursery great!  If you’re super quick, you can probably just about grab one.

The Brio Sleep Cotbed is lovely and roomy.  It measures 140cms x 70cms and starts life as a cot with 3 adjustable positions and eventually when your kiddo is ready, remove all the sides and you’ve got a junior bed.  But there are other combos you can create in between.  We’ve got one and I love it for it’s smooth, sleek lines, the curved ends, the glossy finish and the lovely colours.  Choose from sunny yellow or raspberry red.  The Brio Sleep Cotbed’ll last a good 5-6 years and costs £249 with free delivery from the lovely Lula Sapphire.  It’s about the only place with any left.  Bye, bye Brio Sleep – we’ll miss you!

UPDATE on 21.04.2011: Brio Sleep cot bed sold out at Lula Sapphire. You can try Funktionalley but they’re a lot more expensive on there.

For some more lovely coloured cots check out Kalon Studios Caravan Crib if you’re after a splurge. or if you’re looking for a style steal then have a look at the Ikea Somnat cots.

"Rokka Play"

 

While flitting about the Earls Court Baby Show,  I spotted the ingenious Rokka Play.  I got so unbelievably excited that I seriously nearly popped it!  Luckily I lived to tell the tale.  The Rokka Play is a boat, a rocker, a kitchen, a desk, a theatre, a table all in one.  I kid you not.

The Rokka is a wooden toy like no other.  It starts off as a see-saw sty-lee rocking boat for 2, flip it over and you’ve got a table and chairs for 2.  Turn it on it’s side, add the kitchen accessories and you’ve got a play kitchen complete with hob, washing machine, cooker, sink and more.  Then of course there’s the theatre pack. Add the bits and stage your own Westend spectacular.  All this without any tools, so even DIY no-hopers like me have no excuse!

The Rokka is a toy with humongous possibilities (I mean we’re talking blue whale proportions here).  Unleash a toddler or two, bring out the Rokka and watch them imagine things you never dreamed possible.  The starter pack gives your bambinos the boat, table and chairs and includes a mast, oars, a sail and cushions.  The main bit measures 104 x 38 x 43 cms, costs £234 and is suitable from 1 year on.  You can get the kitchen pack for an additional £70 and the theatre pack for £36.  OK, I agree, the Rokka Play isn’t the cheapest toy around but it gives you heaps of imaginative play options in one and think storage space too.  One toy = rocker, kitchen, boat, desk and more.  Add up the cost of buying all these (not to mention the bigger house you’ll need) and you’re guaranteed to be quids in!

I’m told they’ll be bringing out more packs in the future so you can keep adding and chopping and changing the toy.  The one I’m eagerly awaiting is the aeroplane pack.  But if you can see the possibilities that this toy offers, you can just as easily  don your own creative hat and ermm… create!

The Rokka Play is seriously clever.  The only limit is your imagination (an old cliche maybe but oh so true here).  Awsomeness has has hit the toy world!

Shhh… don’t forget to checkout the secret sale over at ebabee.

"Nappy pants"

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about some hilariously twisted nappy pants by Twisted Twee.  Suzi Warren the maker saw the post and sent me a pair ‘to adorn my toddlers bottom’.  Shortly after, some tudor red Henry VIII pants arrived in the post.  Disappointed I was not.  The fabrics super soft, the printing’s top-notch and ebabee no.1 loves wearing them above clothes, under clothes, on her head, it matters not just so long as they’re on.  Suzi – Thank you lots for adding a bit of twisted hilarity to the ebabee household and some unusual memories to our photo albums!

Go and check out Twisted Twee and laugh out loud!

A dolls house to go!

"portable wooden dolls house"

I’ve been on the hunt for a small dollhouse for ebabee no. 1.  Turns out she’s too young.  While hunting I did find some lovelies for slightly older kidlets.  My pick for todays post is the most unusual of the lot.  A portable wooden dolls house in scrumptiously eye-catching colours.  It’s by Grimm, Spiel & Holz, a German lot who get colour like babies get milk.  It’s seriously portable, made of nasty-free painted wood, has 14 pieces and a felt cover with string to carry.  It’s small but perfectly formed.

It’s available from Shak-Shuka, an online store with soul… a happy, sunny soul brimming with playful fanciables for baby, toddler and mama!  The portable wooden dollhouse comes in an orange /pink combo or blue/green, costs €48.95 plus €6.95 shipping and is suitable for 3 year olds and over.  Imaginative play on the go!

While you’re here, have a look-see at ebabee, the baby auction site.

"noo noo baby bibs"

Childish, innocent and stylish.  They’re the words that immediately sprang to mind when I saw these bibs.  I’m hearting the pureness of the designs.  Simple white background with an oh so sweet, child-like drawing.  These baby bibs by NooNoo are handmade with organic cotton and come in a sheep or ladybird design.  They cost £10 for a set of 3 plus £3.50 delivery.  Suitable from birth to about 6 months, this range is called ‘Silly Billy’… love it!

Come and visit us at ebabee, where you can buy and sell baby items galore!

"no tray highchair"

Highchairs.  There seems to be an abundance of the platicky type on offer and that’s just not for me.  But this weekend I came across the no-tray highchair…  think Pizza Express, and you’ll know the chair I mean.  No-tray means the chair gets right up to the table and voila, you’re baby’s munching away with you.  It’s available in light and dark wood, but it’s the blue one that’s got me all excited!  The no tray highchair’s available from Poppy Baby for £75 with free delivery.  And there’s not a frilly, plasticky bit in sight.

Checkout and like our facebook page, there’s a special sale coming soon.

"baby safety products"

Baby safety products, we all need them.  But they’re hardly exciting or wantable, are they?  Or that’s what I thought until today.  Checkout the super funky baby proofing stuff from Beaba.  They’ve got the coolest looking cupboard locks, socket covers, door catches and more.  Quirky, crazy, vibrant, maybe even over the top for some, but dull they’re definitely not.  They cost from £3.99 plus £2.99 delivery.  Say goodbye to boring white and hello to dizzying colourful-ness!  Baby safety products just got delicious!
