Cute games on the go!

Do your kids constantly ask to play board games?  In our home Anya loves to play games.   If I agreed to it, she would have me playing from morning to night.  I normally enjoy playing with her, that is until she loses.  Then it’s tears and grumpiness and everything that all five year olds do when they don’t win.  But I can’t blame her too much because I still don’t like losing!  Who does?  Games also make fun birthday gifts especially when you don’t know the child too well so recently while searching for a gift I came across these adorable games.  So cute aren’t they?  With bright colours and cute illustrations most of these handmade games are small so they’re perfect at home or on the go too. 

Hand made teddy bears

"handmade natural fibre teddy bears"

Who doesn’t love a cuddly teddy bear?  And these ones by Polka Dot Club are made with love and care by an artist who believes in heritage toys but with a modern update.  These bears are all handmade using only natural materials instead of the synthetic fibres that you mostly find these days.  Jennifer Murphy, the artist behind Polka Dot Club, learned to sew and make teddy bears from her mother.  And not so long ago she started this adorable club where you can find limited edition and one off bears like these as well as the cutest little rabbits.  Handmade, durable, and natural toys are becoming more and more rare so it’s always exciting to come across someone who is so passionate about toys that aren’t just for today but for generations to come.  The handmade teddy bears also come with the cutest wardrobe, don’t you think?

"handmade soft toy cat"Meet Fedor… a cute Norwegian forest cat who likes to try his hand at various professions.  When I first saw this creature, I thought the idea of a cat taking on all these different jobs was too cute!  He can be a seaman, a painter, a woodsman, a janitor and probably any other profession you can think of.  What fun for a kid to play with this friendly cat and dress him up in a new outfit every day.  Dress up dolls are always great fun and even better when they’re as creative as this adventurous cat.  Fedor is handmade by a Russian designer called Ania Druzhinina who doesn’t have an online shop but you can contact her through her website where you’ll also find Fedor in his many other guises.

"hand made cardboard art toys"

While browsing the marketplace that is Etsy, I found these Spanish hand made cardboard toys called ‘Paper Friends’.  These whimsical art toys are the creation of an illustrator called Blanca Helga who is enamoured with the world of children and it shows.  The art toys can be played with or can be decorations too.  But I think they would make fabulously unusual kid’s room art – just pop them in a frame and job done.  I’m really loving the folk art vibe coming through the creations and I’m loving their all round quirkiness.  If you’re looking for kids room art that is truly unique and individual then I can’t think of anything better.  You’ll find these hand made cardboard art toys over at Blanca Helga’s etsy store or you can check out her own site too.
