DjecoOur kids received several Djeco Stencils (RRP $12.95, now $7) from their generous tante in The Netherlands and they have had so much fun with them. There are 5 stencils in each pack so you can create a couple of different images, just remember to stick the stencil down with some sticky tape so it stays in place! It’s always exciting to lift the stencil and see the end result and it’s a good exercise for fine motor skills.

Christmas Countdown – Day 1

As a child I used to love a beautiful snow globe and to be honest I still do. The delightful sight of hundreds of little snowflakes, glitters and sparkles falling down never gets boring so I am not surprised my children love it too. This magical time of year calls for a truly magical gift, so we’re starting our Christmas Countdown in style with this gorgeous prize from Where Did You Get That?:

Djeco Night Light Fawn

These whimsical Djeco Night Lights (RRP $64.95) would make a stunning decor piece in a child’s bedroom or nursery (in fact I would quite like one myself too…) that will be enjoyed for years to come.

Djeco Night Light BallerinaDon’t worry, there is no shaking involved. The Djeco Night Lights are battery operated so the glitter will keep floating around thanks to a super quiet fan while your little ones drifts off to sleep watching the magical effects of the rainbow colours and moving glitters on the bedroom wall. You can limit the playing time with the handy timer to preserve batteries and keep the room dark overnight.

Djeco Night Light FishThere are currently three different Djeco Night Lights to choose from: green Fawn, aqua Fish and pink Ballerina, they’re all equally sweet so I bet our lucky winner will have a hard time picking a favourite. If you would like to place one of these pretty night lights under the Christmas tree this year you better be quick, the first delivery sold out in less than 2 hours so they’re hot property!

Whimsy Child

In case you haven’t realised today’s date yet: it’s the 24th of November which means you have exactly ONE month left to get Christmas ready. Whimsy Child is keen to help you kickstart that Christmas shopping list so they’ve got a hard-to-beat deal for you:

Right now you can save a huge 25% storewide at Whimsy Child with the code ‘KICK-IT!’, just be quick as this great offer ends today, November 24. Offer excludes Yumbox lunch boxes.

The Whimsy Child Play and Create categories has plenty of great gift ideas for boys and girls of all ages, from small stocking fillers to impressive gifts that will have the kids talking for weeks. If you are on a budget (aren’t we all?) these are my favourite gifts under $10, $20 and $30:

Eeboo Pipe Cleaner BunnyThe super cute and crafty Eeboo Pipe Cleaner Bunny ($7.75) would have to be my best gift under $10, if you use the KICK-IT! discount code you even get more than $4 change. It’s small, compact and affordable and it’s sure to keep the kids busy on your next car trip or rainy afternoon. Each pack contains 36 pipe cleaners in different sizes and colours as well as instructions to make the pictured project. For boys there is a Piper Cleaner Crab set available.

Automoblox Mini S9With $20 in hand I would say the Automoblox Mini S9 Sedan (normally $22.95, now $17.25) is an excellent choice. Automoblox cars can be pulled apart and rebuilt and if you have multiple designs you can swap and change between the different styles to create your very own unique ride. Personally I love the look of these ice blue wheels but there are other Automoblox colours, styles and sizes to choose from too.

Djeco Restaurant Play SetLast but not least, my hot pick under $3o is the Djeco Restaurant Play Set (normally $39.60, now $29.70). Who needs plastic fries and hamburgers when you can serve tasty looking delights like this in your toy kitchen? Moroccan, Japanese and Indian, the menu contains 12 colourful international food items made from durable wood for endless pretend play fun. Our 4 children all love playing the toy kitchen and I know they would very much enjoy this lovely set.

Little Big Room

With only one week to go until our 23rd Big Birthday Bash giveaway comes to end I am starting to get very excited about drawing the lucky winner of that beautiful Little Big Room bedding set from Where Did You Get That?. It’s so much fun reading all the entries and seeing which styles are the current favourites. If you missed the original giveaway you can still read it here and get your entries in but if you’re in a rush you can also take a short cut and enter below, easy peasy.

LBR Girls 2

A lot of votes are going to the gorgeous Flowers design and I have to admit I am not surprised, it’s my personal fave too. The soft green and pink tones are absolutely delightful and perfect for a sweet girl, no matter what age. Just like all the other Little Big Room linen this bedding set is reversible so you can enjoy these two pretty looks for the same price, which one do you like most?

Little Big Room ButterfliesTo help you create the ultimate Little Big Room you can add a few, or all, of the matching decor pieces and really complete the look. A feature wall (or even just one banner) of Little Big Room wall paper is a very easy way to freshen up a plain wall, there are lots of stunning wall papers to choose from. For a super speedy (and less permanent) makeover why not decorate a blank space with some sweet wall stickers or replace your boring light by an eye catching light shade, they’re small changes that can make a big difference.

Little Big Room Maltese Light ShadeFor the boys it’s neck and neck between the Graphic and Checks Quilt Cover Set but Checks is slightly ahead. The funky geometrical design featuring neutral base tones with a bright pop of yellow is a welcome change from the classic navy and red you see in many boys bedrooms. Sharp and edgy on one side and soft and rounder on the reverse, change the look every time you change the bed.

All Little Big Room bedding sets ($99.95) are made from 100% cotton and contain a single bed quilt cover and matching pillow case, other accessories are sold separately so you can mix and match to your heart’s desire.

Big Birthday Bash – Day 23

For months the lovely girls at Where Did You Get That? have been tapping their toes and biting their fingernails, impatiently awaiting the arrival of the stunning Little Big Room range. Now it’s finally here and it was most definitely worth the wait. Created by French designer label Djeco this divine range of children’s bed linen and room decor is sure to transform any kids bedroom from boring and plain into a wonderful space that’s full of character and style.

Little Big Room Girls

The Little Big Room linen collection is split up in five beautiful themes to suit boys and girls of all ages. From vibrant Orient to pink Romantic and sweet Flowers and from funky Checks to bold Graphic, there is a perfect Little Big Room for everyone. The eye catching quilt covers and pillow cases are made from breathable, comfortable cotton and all styles are reversible, offering two stylish looks in one great product.

Little Big Room Boys

What I really love about the Little Big Room collection is that the colourful prints are not too childish, they would look great on a toddler’s first big bed and they would look just as awesome in a tween bedroom. Each theme features multiple colours making it easy to find decor pieces in the right colours to complete the look.
