Noodle and Lou: These funny paintings will not just fit in your children's room... Made by a creative mom from New York who also has her own blog. OrangeRhinoKids: Allison sent me an email that until theiwr website is live, they sell their adorable onesies and t-shirts via their Etsy shop.
If you like colorful unique prints, then you should have a look at Zutano. Zutano offers baby basics in many colors and adorable patterns. You can shop online or find a store in many countries around the world.
Sorry for my absence; some readers already wondered if the baby was born... no signs sofar!Being a bit less mobile, I am fully to online shopping; for the baby room, Christmas presents, lamps for our house. Almost everyday UPS or DHL is delivering something and I am afraid to look at my bank account... Yesterday I bought some of these storage baskets by Handed By. They have them all kinds of colors and sizes and I like the fact that they have a cover. Handed By is sold in many countries, just have a look at the selling points.
This week is flying by and I do not manage to post daily. With about 4 weeks to go until nr. 2 arrives (and keeping in mind that our son was born 4 weeks early!) I am getting a bit nervous and I am in the shopping mood. Today I did grocery shopping for at least a month and I just have been looking for the perfect Christmas presents for my family. I have decided to buy everything online and found some very nice German webshops which sell beautiful items... Nevertheless, I want to take the time now to thank Sarah Jane. She was so happy that I wrote about her Etsy shop that she offered me a print. I have chosen this one with the dancing elephants, which will get a nice spot in the new baby room. Thank you so much, Sarah Jane!!!
A friend whose son will be starting school on a short notice, told me about 'Goed Gemerkt' (or 'Neatly Named' in English). They offer all kinds of labels for clothes, lunch boxes, sport gear etc. It is very easy to create your own label and select color, icon, letter type and of course text. A good idea for every one who is afraid of losing your child's belongings (and who is not?). Goed gemerkt ships around the world.
As my German language skills progress, I come across more German sites. I found these Kettler plug-in figures ('steckfiguren') and fell in love with them. The packaging, the cuteness of the characters and the way it is presented on the website makes it irresistible. I have no idea if children like to play with it. However, I saw that they sell around the world, so I guess it is popular. If you have time to read about the history of Kellner; it is very interesting as it all began in 1919!
A friend attended me on a great children store in Frankfurt: Die kleine Fabrik. Although I have not yet been there, I found these shoes on their website. I have never seen Cocomma from Denmark but I find their collection very appealing, both for boys and girls. Cocomma is sold in many European countries, in Japan and USA.
Today I came across Hipkid from Belgium. They sell beautiful decoration items, bibs, blankets and more. There is not much I can tell you about this company. Just browse their site and get inspired by their products. Unfortunately the site is only in Dutch and the only way to get Hipkid products is to order online. I now have to do my German homework, tomorrow I have my German classes...and I hope to do the exam in 4 weeks from now (around my due date!)
