On one of our trips in Holland (well actually we were in Belgium that day, got to love the distances over there) we stopped at a small road side cafe for a drink. Our beautiful miss 4 had just had a little meltdown and the lady from the cafe spotted the last remaining tears on her face. To cheer her up she gave all the kids a candy necklace, you can imagine the smiles. I think we all know them, those children’s necklaces made of little round lollies, beaded onto elastic. They are still talking about this yummy necklace so I knew they would love this gorgeous creation from Dutch label 2 Cute 2 Be True.

The DIY Candy Necklace (€17.95) looks just as colourful as the real treat, only supersized! Each DIY kit contains 14 ready-to-use crochet beads in a selection of colours, all you need is a ribbon or piece of string and your little one can make a fabulous necklace they can really wear. Kids will love this and so will parents, there is no need to worry about articifical colours and a high sugar content.

Here’s another one of designer Judith’s clever DIY kits, a colourful garland that you can put together in a flash. Each crochet piece closes with velcro so kids can easily do this themselves, they will love helping with the decorations for their own birthday party or special occasion. The 16-piece DIY Garland Kit (€17.95) is available in bright and pastel colours. If you are talented with your hands you can create more crochet pieces yourself and make your garland even longer.

But there is more to 2 Cute 2 Be True than the DIY collection, in store you’ll find lots of lovely crochet goodness in a range of sizes from big huggable animal friends to tiny little playsets. The 2 Cute 2 Be True dolls (€17.50) are absolutely adorable, each character measures ca. 25 cm tall and they love getting cuddles. Which one is your favourite, is it Lulu Lamb or maybe Barbara Bunny?

To find out more about 2 Cute 2 Be True, to browse the range and to order online visit, flat rate postage to Australia is AUD $20.
