Jack & Evelyn

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a fabulous sale at Jack & Evelyn, offering their gorgeous wooden table and chairs sets at such a great price it was almost too good to be true. Our old table and chairs set (lovingly nicknamed ‘the little table’) gets used every single day for breakfast, homework, games and more so after a couple of years of heavy use it was starting to look a little worse for wear. It was time for an upgrade and this sale came at the perfect time.

The great thing about Jack & Evelyn Table & Chairs is that you can mix and match within the range to suit your family perfectly. A table and 2 chairs, a table and 4 chairs or even just single chairs or table to expand/replace a setting you already have. The neutral white table and chairs fit in effortlessly with your living room, play room or bedroom decor and if you like a pop of colour you can choose pink or navy chairs too. Prices start at $39 (single chair) up to $189 (table + 4 chairs).

Wooden Table & Chair Set

Within just a few days our new small people table setting was delivered by courier, neatly packed in sturdy cardboard boxes padded with foam for extra protection. With lots of curious kids and grabby crabby hands around I left the assembling for hubby to do on the weekend. All was very straight forward, easy to do and fitted together beautifully and I could not be more pleased with the end result.

The kids are really chuffed with their new table, it’s just perfect for indoor picnics and sweet tea parties, board games and craft. Measuring 60 x 60 x 50cm in size the table is plenty big enough for my four little people and being square it is actually larger than our old round table, bonus!

Christmas Countdown – Day 7

For most families Santa delivers a whole heap of new toys and while the kids are usually very excited to play with their new Christmas gifts they are not so keen on tidying up afterwards. At Jack & Evelyn they know that children want to access their toys whenever they want but they also understand that parents like a tidy, organised home which is why they have designed a beautiful Jack & Evelyn toy box:

Jack & Evelyn Toy Box

The brand new Jack & Evelyn Wooden Toy Box (RRP $139) has only just arrived on Australian shores and we are very excited to give one of these awesome boxes away in our Christmas Countdown.

Wooden Toy Box GreyMade from strong, durable MDF these great toy boxes make a neat and stylish home for all those loose toys that cover your bedroom, playroom or lounge room floor. They are generous in size (85 x 45 x 42cm) and are designed without a lid, that way children can rummage through their toys safely without the risk of injured fingers or bumped heads. The Jack & Evelyn Wooden Toy Box is currently available in navy/white, pink/white and grey/white and with its sleek and neutral design it is sure to fit in with any decor.

Pink Wooden Toy BoxFor an extra special touch you can have your new Jack & Evelyn Toy Box personalised with the name of your child or a word of your choosing, a small $20 fee applies. To do so Jack & Evelyn uses neutral white wooden letters that match the toy box beautifully. What a nice way to award ownership to your children and encourage them to tidy and look after what belongs to them. I think this would make a fantastic keepsake gift that will be enjoyed for years to come.

When the thermometer reads 37ºC in mid October you know it’s time to dig up the bathers and shake out the towels, swimming season has begun! Unlike myself, who would love to just lay on the beach and read a good book, the kids are always busy: swimming, building sand castles, playing catch, kicking balls, flying kites, searching for shells and more. So how do you keep kids dry and toasty while they play?

Jack & Evelyn Navy Poncho Towel

Designed right here in Australia by a lovely mum-of-two Jack & Evelyn is home to a growing range of stylish, practical, high quality products for your family. Being a mother herself owner Melissa knows exactly what parents want, need and look for when searching for the right product so she’s made sure her designs tick all the boxes. In time for Summer the first Jack & Evelyn product has just been released, check out the fabulous Jack & Evelyn Poncho Towel:

Poncho Towel RedUnlike many other children’s towels on the market Jack & Evelyn Poncho Towels (RRP $35) are made from the highest quality 100% cotton terry toweling so they are super soft, lovely and thick and very absorbent. The simple over-the-head design makes these beautiful towels very easy and quick to put on and take off, even toddlers can do it! To keep the poncho in place when your little water lover is on the go it is fitted with press studs under the arms and around the neck.

Poncho Towel PinkJack & Evelyn Poncho Towels come in one size only to fit ages 2-8 and are currently available in four different colours to suit boys and girls, which one is your favourite? The poncho towels are plain with a contrasting trim so they are timeless and a great choice for all ages, so much more appealing than all the licensed gear around. Whether you’re on the beach, at the pool or playing with water in the garden, Jack & Evelyn has got you covered.
