When my parents were visiting Australia last month I wanted to give them a lovely Australian gift to take back home to our little nieces in The Netherlands. It didn’t take me long to come up with something, I knew straight away that they would absolutely love the creations of the girls at O.B.Designs. You might know this Australian label from the adorable DINGaRINGs or quirky Stufits, but have you also seen their newest arrival?

The Heart Felt Creations ($14.95) have only just arrived on our shores but they have already stolen many hearts, not a surprise really as they are just gorgeous. Their soft felt bodies are combined with an interesting crinkle sound, gentle squeaker or dingle bell so they are the perfect toy for inquisitive little people and will keep them entertained for ages. The looks are inspired by Australia’s fascinating wildlife, landscape and culture, translated into stylish products by two talented Australian designers.

To help with teething drama’s and to cheer up sad little faces there are the O.B.Design DINGaRINGs ($19.95), the 3-in-1 baby toys featuring a natural wooden teething ring, soft and cuddly body and fun rattle. The collection consists of eight cheeky creatures with personalities to match. Emma Owl, Tony Tree Frog, Pete Penguin, which DINGaRING would get your baby giggling most?

The O.B.Designs Stufits ($24.95) are the quirky take on the boring back pack, big enough for a pair of pyjama’s and a toothbrush or some snacks for an afternoon out to the park or visit to grandma and grandpa. I can’t wait for our niece to meet Kev Koala, although I think she would have loved Lola Ladybug too. With 4 characters to choose from there is a great Stufit friend for every little boy or girl.
