Fun and Creative Sets from Trim Toys

18 Mar

Trim Toys 2


I received an email from Catalina and Gabriela from Argentina, friends and the founders of the brand called Trim Toys. They have started the company in 2011 with a desire to design innovative and creative toys that would encourage children’s’ imagination and creativity and keep them away from unproductive toys like video games.

Trim Toys 3

Their current collection consists of a collar, an apron, a dress and a cowboy suit and each set comes printed on a 100% cotton canvas sheet along with paint, a brush and of course the instructions. It needs to be painted, cut out and then used to have with! The packaging can be recycled as a pencil case.

Trim Toys 1

My Tila is not the biggest fan of painting and drawing but when she received this dress from Catalina and Gabriela she couldn’t wait to do it – I think it might have been the knowledge she’s getting a dress out of it that made her so excited. I have never seen her so still and devoted to painting before. And she was so proud of her masterpiece that she insisted on wearing it to her Kindergarten the next day! How could I say no?

You can see more photos of their projects on their Facebook page. Their products will soon be available to buy on Etsy but until then you can contact them by email (trimtoy(at)gmail.com)
 

Oh Wow: The Summer House Baby Shoes

12 Mar

The Summer House


I just came across this small boutique called the Summer House selling baby shoes and hair accessories and I swear I could hear my heart beating faster. The brand is based in Munich and established by Zaida Martin who was born in Madrid but later moved to Germany. Everything is handcrafted by Zaida’s own two hands and with only natural materials like pure wool, leather and organic cotton only. Music to my ears!

I have a serious crush on these Oxford Baby Booties for Talan and the hairclips for Tila! Pure gorgeousness!
 

Day 24: Body Bela from Macarons

24 Dec

Macarons Bela Body


I developed a giant crush on this incredible German brand Macarons ever since it was founded and last month I finally ordered a few items for Tila and my baby boy. And oh I’m so glad I did – the quality of their products is out of this world. I have never seen anything like it!

Julie and Veit, the leading force behind the Macarons developed an innovative doubleface textile called IQ fabric. The name came after its warming, water-repellent and temperature-regulating qualities and the secret is in the organic merino wool on the outside woven together with the also organic cotton on the inside.

There are also the delicious designs that are truly one of a kind. The two sides come in contrasting colors and by folding or rolling the hems and collars you can play around with the looks and create individual styles.

Ok, I’m getting to the best part now. Julie and Veit kindly offered this beautiful organic cotton onesie Body Bela that comes in three different sizes (see here) and by commenting below the size you’d pick you enter the giveaway. Easy as that.

There are also extra entries for the ones that share the news on this giveaway via Facebook, Twitter or any other Social Media just make sure to let me know you did it.

Day 19: €30 to be Spend at Sweetcase

19 Dec

Sweetcase

I’ve written about Sweetcase and Murielle Sitruk who came up with this genius idea that moms-to-be will especially love before. While she was expecting her second child she tried to find one place where she could find everything for the baby to fill up her hospital bag but she couldn’t. And so an ide was born! She started producing her own line of suitcases made of thick cotton canvas and lined with cotton that has the most precious prints designed by studio Minakani, solely for Sweetcase. The suitcase is available by itself and fully or partially pre-filled. The complete set contains all the pieces of clothing a baby needs in his first weeks plus a bed set, sleeping sack, a towel, toiletry bag and the cover for the babies health book. Like the suitcase all the other pieces can also be bought separately.

Murielle offered to let the winner of this giveaway choose his/her own favorite item(s) within the amount of €30. For your chance to win this giveaway simply leave a comment below.

Collégien

You’ll love day 2 of our Calendar. I’m not sure how many times I’ve praised these slippers already but Collégiens simply are the perfect kind. Warm, and cozy as socks without the risk of falling flat on tushy thanks to their breathable and flexible non-slip rubber soles. Their only downside is that there are just too many great designs and patterns available that make it super hard for you to only decide on one pair!

Collégiens are giving away one pair of slippers and the winner gets to choose the design and the size. In order to participate simply let me know that by commenting below.
