As you know I am always full of praise for online store Coccinella, I just love Renata’s choice of eco friendly products from all around the world and think they are all winners. But don’t just take my word for it, Australian My Child magazine has discovered the great range too and has nominated two of Coccinella’s products in the My Child Excellence Awards 2012. Very exciting!

The Puppy and his Mum ($59.95) by Polish brand Kalimba is designed by artist and mum Natka. This colourful mummy dog hides a cute little puppy in her belly, an interesting concept for young children and my three can’t get enough of it! They love carrying her around by her floppy ears and legs and her big size makes her very real. The sweet design and super soft fabric make it a lovely baby gift so it is no surprise Puppy and his Mum is nominated for Best Baby Toy by My Child.

Coccinella also stocks the beautiful Flower Rainbow Push Along Toy ($49.95) by Bajo, nominated by My Child in the Best Eco Product category. If your baby is about to do his/her first wobbly steps this gorgeous flower is the perfect encouragement. As the high quality wooden toy is pushed along the colourful petals open and close which will make those little eyes light up and sparkle with delight.

If you think one (or both) of these toys deserve to win an award in the My Child Excellence Awards 2012 please consider casting your vote. There are many more categories to vote in and lots of great products to be discovered, voting ends April 18 2012. Plus you could be a winner too, just by voting you could win a fabulous family holiday on the sunny Gold Coast worth $1,669.50.
