A new favourite!

Playshapes by Miller Goodman, - really, can blocks get any better than this?  Just arrived instore and wow-wee what a set! 74 geometric wooden shapes which can be rearranged or stacked to make any 3d object or creation.

The simplicity, colour and mid century inspired design is what makes this set really special and I can imagine it being a heirloom in any family....something a child fondly remembers.

Instore and online now x

A new Paumes - Paris Family Style

For all those that became addicted to these books last year (just like me!) a new edition has arrived - Paris Family Style.

21 Parisian families, artists and designers feature in this lovely book. Beyond the family portraits are the interiors of their wonderfully creative homes, each with a personality of its own, painting a picture of the family who lives there. From the pure and simple to the boldly graphic, from the vibrantly colourful to flea-market chic, from the enchantingly romantic to cool, contemporary design... Bienvenue à la maison!

128 pages, full colour throughout, text in Japanese. Rrp $37.50
We only have a few, so call us if you would like to buy a copy.

Anorak - A happy mag


Anorak is here! This incredible kids magazine hit our shores this year and we are lucky enough to be a stockist. It's a quarterly magazine for children (...and maybe us adults) created by Cathy Olmedillas from the UK. She calls it her 'happy mag'!

Anorak is full of crazy and inspiring stuff for kids age 5-8, including stories, happy activities, book reviews and thought-provoking features. Featuring the work of leading contemporary illustrators and with lots of contributions from kids themselves, it is one of the coolest and brightest magazines around.

We have 4 issues available online or instore. Let me know what you think!

LMNOP Featured us yesterday!

Thank you to LMNOP for the wonderful post yesterday on the best-rated kid's stores around the globe - we were lucky enough to be mentioned in the top 8 best kids stores, with only 1 other Australian store - yay!

Its a really special feeling when you get acknowledged like that, so chuffed! Check LMNOP out and have a read, the others stores look divine too!
