No matter how old and grubby they are by now, I simply can’t get myself to throw out my two favourite childhood toys, a soft blue bunny with one twisted ear and a sleeping baby doll whose arms are slowly falling off. Childhood toys hold so many memories and emotions, no wonder we tend to hold on to them as we get older. Take Guff, a cheeky fabric friend like no other captured by the talented Aaron Blabey:

Thoroughly loved and tad scruffy from all the cuddles and laundry cycles, cheeky monster Guff (RRP $16.99) is irreplaceable. He follows his owner everywhere, bringing not only comfort and reassurance but also cheeky adventures and mysterious disappearances. Thankfully he always show up.. after all, what would you do without your Guff?

Featuring gorgeous illustrations in Aaron Blabey’s signature style, accompanied by simple text, Guff is the perfect picture book for young readers with a favourite cuddly toy, and everyone else who still cherishes their childhood friend.

Frosty dreams with Olaf

Two weeks ago I was invited to the twins’ school to talk to the children about Hip Little One. We talked about spotting cool stuff, trends, TV, popular toys and characters, Christmas wish lists and the impact other people have on our shopping. We ‘reviewed’ a couple of items together and it was really interesting to see how their little minds work.

Olaf Pillow Pet

One of the products we looked at was a Pillow Pet, a very popular item amongst young Australian children. The students all agreed that Pillow Pets are totally cool, they are soft and cuddly and an excellent companion for snuggles on the couch or bedtime hugs. From a mother’s point of view I like that Pillow Pets are safe and machine washable so they will last for years. That’s a pretty good review if you ask me!

Pillow Pet OlafThe Pillow Pet family is always expanding with gorgeous new designs so there is a friendly pal to suit everyone. The girls loved everything pink, purple and sparkly, the boys were more into dinosaurs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Cars, there are so many different options! Just in time for Christmas Frozen’s favourite snowman Olaf has made his first appearance, he’s soft, white and huggable and won’t melt no matter how many warm hugs you give him!

Let’s hope the mums don’t blame me for all the Olaf Pillow Pets that have now made their way onto the Christmas wish lists!

The Olaf Pillow Pet (RRP $34.99, size 16″) is now available at Target, Big W, Spotlight, TRU and independent toy stores across Australia.

For a limited time only, order two or more items from and receive free shipping Australia wide.

It’s a pillow, it’s a pet AND it lights up your room, it’s the brand new Pillow Pet Glow Friend! Pillow Pets have been a hot Christmas gift for quite a few years now, a hit with both boys and girls and gentle on the (often tight) December budget too. This year everyone’s favourite cuddly pillow has become even more popular with an exciting new 3-in-1 design that the kids are going to love:

Glow Friends UnicornPillow Pet Glow Friends ($29.99, ages 3+) have the soft, cuddly feel of a comfy pillow, they have a lovable, friendly personality and make a fabulous buddy and (the most exciting part) they glow in the dark which looks amazing and offers a bit of extra security at bedtime.  The magical glow comes from special LED lights that don’t get hot (making them completely safe to snuggle up to) and they automatically turn off after 20 minutes to save battery life.

Glow Friends TurtleThere are currently 6 adorable Glow Friends to choose from, my favourite would have to be the unicorn (for that extra magical touch). Which Glow Friend would light up your little ones face (no pun intended)? If you want to surprise the kids with one of these enchanting new Pillow Pets under the tree make sure you get your order in before December 10 to ensure delivery in time for Christmas.

My Birthday Teddy

August is a bit of a crazy month in our household with four of our six family members celebrating their birthday. Of course it is busy (for me) but also a bit emotional as it make me remember so vividly the days our children were born and how much they have grown and changed this past year. But no matter how old they are, there will always be that special memory of their birthday and the names we carefully picked for them which is why I love the idea of My Birthday Teddy.

My Birthday Teddy TraditionalAt My Birthday Teddy they understand that certain dates are extra special and worth remembering. Whether it is a child’s birthday or communion or maybe a graduation, Valentine’s Day or even the day of your first date, ‘save the date’ with a gorgeous teddy personalised just for you. The beautiful teddy bears are soft, cuddly and while they look fabulous sitting proudly on a shelf they make the best huggable buddies for children too.

My Birthday Teddy PinkThere are three different teddies to choose from (Pink, Blue or Traditional with checkered or pink ribbon) and you can further customise your bear with a unique embroidered message to suit the receiver and occasion perfectly. Each My Birthday Teddy measures a generous 50cm tall (yes, that’s half a metre!) and with this impressive length come very decent sized feet too, that means plenty of room for the words of your choice. You have three lines and 15 characters per line to play with so you better start counting.

My Graduation TeddyYour custom made My Birthday Teddy ($55) will be carefully wrapped in tissuepaper and shipped in a sturdy cardboard box, delivery costs are $10 Australia wide. What a lovely gift for little people and such a precious keepsake for later (great gift idea for grandparents)! Of course I could not be raving about My Birthday Teddy without ordering my four treasures their very own My Birthday Teddy too so stay tuned for an update and a photo in the next few weeks.
