Summer Daze...

We have found the perfect possie for summer days and sandy adventures with this AMAZING Beach Box Cubby from Castle & Cubby...

Born out of a desire to create an inspiring and individual space for their new son Jethro, Kellie and Jonathan created their first Castle & Cubby space. Reminiscent of their own childhood the cubby was created out of old apple crates and boasted its own sandpit and veggie garden! The perfect place for little imaginations to run wild.

"A few years ago one thing lead to another and we started making cubby houses for friends. Their encouragement and our excitement at a repurposing lifestyle lead us to do more. So we started this little business, the business of creating quirky things from recycled stuff for cool and funky little people with BIG imaginations. We are still passionately creating and building outdoor play spaces for Melbourne families."

Staying true to their ethos, all of the timbers are sourced locally and are 100% recycled and untreated, making them completely safe for little folk and their big imaginations. And the cubbies are also a perfect way to show children what magic lies in throwaway items that have been labelled rubbish.

This stunning Beach Box is just one of the many amazing designs from this beautiful brand. Head over to Castle & Cubby's website to see more of their wonderful spaces. I am thinking of getting a slightly larger one in the back yard this summer with a big 'No Kids Allowed' sign on the front...

A Trip Down Memory Lane

We are suckers for a children’s toy range that bring a modern twist to some traditional classics. So it is no surprise why we have fallen very hard for the brand new range from Such Great Heights. Aptly named ‘The Nostalgia Collection’ this fresh new gathering of toys takes you on a marvellous trip down memory lane to a time when you yourself were playing wooden toys and dollies on a shag pile rug...

The 5 piece timber toy range has been designed in appreciation of the authentic shapes and superior craftsmanship of toys from simpler times. Contemporary colours and unexpected textures are cleverly woven through the story to bring continuity to this distinctive keepsake collection

Adding to the nostalgic romance of this collection is the fact that it has been designed by the very clever Such Great Heights and brought to life by an amazing little working group on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia.

So, if you’re a sucker for beautifully designed and exquisitely crafted homewares you must head over to the Such Great Heights website and fuss over the range for yourself.
If you’re in Australia access the store here.

Avakai Twins

Even though there are some pretty creative toys out there, we are big believers in simplicity and that the best toys leave room for our little one’s imagination to run wild. After all, they will always come up with something far more interesting than us adults! Introducing Vai Kai, a truly inspiring company making intuitive and connected wooden toys...

These gorgeous little dolls are called ‘Avakai Twins’ and are not only beautifully crafted but that also have 7 interactions and 12 expressions to offer up your children during an afternoon of play. Your little one will hear them laugh and even sneeze and snore.

Being twins they also communicate with each other. Working like an ingenious modern day walkie-talkie, the dolls are perfect for connecting you with your little grommie when you are away.

Bluetooth enables the two Avakai dolls to talk to each other for a distance up to 50m and from the other side of the world if you connect via the app.

And how is this for cute? When the twin Avakai dolls get closer, you can feel their heartbeats going faster! They also respond to each other's calls. With these superpowers, it is really fun to play countless games like hide and seek and treasure hunt, all with the added twist of connectivity.
