Technology Will Save Us...

I know there are many of you who just don’t want to here the C word in any sort of conversation whatsoever before at least November. However, I’m a planner and I like to start thinking about gifts nice and early. So with that in mind, I’ve added a couple of these kits from Technology Will Save Us to my Christmas shopping list (oops, I said it…) For the budding inventors, engineers, musicians (etc.) in your life, this range includes DIY Electro Dough Kits, Speaker Kits, Synth Kits, Gamer Kits, and more. Find them here.

Amazing Amigurumi by Flaming Pot

I officially developed a design crush on Flaming Pot after spying a pair of adorable crocheted fox dolls during one of my regular Etsy browsing sessions. Made with 100% cotton yarn, these guys have oodles of character, and are available in a range of custom colours as well. If you visit Flaming Pot on Etsy, you’ll also find a range of crocheted rabbits, bears, elephants… and donuts too! View the complete collection here.

Smiley Saturday... with Shine On Creations!

Over the past few months, I’ve been adding a range of wooden toys to my sons toy box to inspire creativity and enrich playtime. Our latest addition is a Namebow – a handmade personalised wooden rainbow puzzle from Shine On Creations. We chose the word ‘smile’ as our little poppet is one of the smiliest guys I’ve even met!

Namebow wooden name puzzles at Shine On Creations

Shine On Creations Namebow Puzzles are handcrafted from locally sourced, recycled natural materials with a rustic appeal that is perfectly imperfect. You can expect to see the true character of the wood shining through, knots and all, which I adore. These puzzles come to you from Mother Nature, and are lovingly hand cut, sanded, and painted – which (in my humble opinion) is so much nicer than your average factory made toy.

We’ve had lots of fun playing with this Namebow, scattering the letters and putting them back in one by one. Although we’re not at the reading stage yet, it’s still nice to spell out the letters and talk about the word ‘smile’ – complete with actions (two-year-olds are excellent at cheesy grins). Having this Namebow made with your child’s name would add an extra layer of recognition, and these puzzles would also make a lovely keepsake or gift. I’ve enjoyed having the sunshiney colours on display in our playroom.

You can purchase a Namebow via Notinshops.com.au with free Australian delivery.
