During these chilly winter nights there is nothing I enjoy more than snuggling up in a nice warm bed with a good book. All evening I look forward to that wonderful moment of finishing my final chore of the day and sliding into bed. Although relaxing in bed sounds fabulous, when you know what’s hiding in your bedlinen it may not be such a good idea at all!

Airports, planes, beach houses, holiday cabins, spare bedrooms… when it comes to sleeping arrangements this holiday is full of diversity. Especially for young children sleeping in an unfamiliar environment can be a bit scary, so we’re trying our best to keep our tribe calm and comfortable the best we can. We’ve come well prepared with their favourite cuddly toys and night lights and miss Sybbie has even brought her cosy Elektra nap time buddy:

Cloud9 Syb

After the huge success of the original Elektra Cloud9 Nap Mat last year designer and mum Jessica has been busy working on an extended range of Cloud9 Nap Mat to fit kids of all sizes (and even mamas who are desperate for a snooze!).

Cloud9 Regular PlusThe Cloud9 Regular Plus Nap Mat (RRP $49.95) is the perfect value for money combo. Made from easy-care polyester this awesome on-the-go sleeping solution for little nappers is a breeze to clean (machine wash), dries quickly and is stain resistant which is a must for cheeky toddlers. Young kids love getting comfy under a soft blankie and thanks to the new 93cm long quilted blanket (total mat length 100cm) there is plenty of snuggle space.

Cloud9 Deluxe Nap MatIts bigger sibling the Cloud9 Deluxe Nap Mat (RRP $59.95) boosts an even longer blanket (100cm, total mat length 125cm) which makes it the perfect size for miss Sybbie. For a more luxurious sleep the Deluxe Nap Mat has a 100% soft and breathable cotton blanket and a thicker mat for added comfort. As with all Cloud9 Nap Mats the pillow is removable and the mats can be machine washed, yay for busy mamas who have no time for hand washing!

Nap Mats Rolled UpDesigned for use at home, daycare, sleepovers and holidays Cloud9 Nap Mats are lightweight and have a convenient carry handle for easy transport. The handy buckle closure helps keep the mats neatly rolled up and compact in size while travelling or in storage. With lots of great colours and prints to choose from and a neat name tag on the outside all kids can have their own unique Nap Mat with no chance of mix-ups.

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.

Loubilou brings you So Fofo

All of our kids have a special pillow, one that sleeps at the foot end of their bed, acts as a cuddly sleeping buddy, makes a comfy head rest on the lounge and on car trips or just adds a stylish touch to their bedroom decor. Our two middle girls are particularly fond of their special pillow so I have been looking for a cute little pillow for our youngest daughter’s nursery too. On one of my travels through the Loubilou directory I stumbled upon So Fofo and I knew immediately I had found the right address for gorgeous pillows:

Pink Nounou pillows from So Fofo

Pink Nounou pillows from So Fofo

So Fofo is the Australian home of super hip European label Pink Nounou. Designed and created by talented Portugese artist Anna Carric the Pink Nounou range is rapidly winning little (and big) hearts all over the world with its unique and utterly divine designs. Ana has a keen eye for beautiful colours, quirky prints and happy themes that put smiles on little faces. If you are looking for a truly original handmade Christmas gift you just have to browse the range, you’ll no doubt find a piece that jumps out to you.

Pink Nounou Snow WhiteAll of the Pink Nounou softie pillows feature printed cotton fabric that is covered by the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, a testing and certification system for textiles that limits the use of certain chemicals so you are not exposing your precious bundle to any nasties when they snuggle up to their new softie. There are plenty of adorable softie pillows and toys to choose from in a range of styles, colours and sizes, prices start at $36.

Pink Nounou House Pillow

Pink Nounou ReinaldoAfter lots of umming and arring I decided on this sweet Pink Nounou House Pillow ($42) for our beautiful girl, I love the simple, peaceful shape yet it is bright and happy at the same time. For now it proudly sits on the nursing chair attracting compliments from visitors but as Sybbie is practising hard to stand up I think it won’t be long before she’ll be toddling around the house with her special pillow too.

A few weeks ago we moved our twins into another bedroom and put up a bunkbed, something they had been asking for for a long time. Of course they were very excited about the bed but my daughter especially loved her new decorative cushion, such an easy way to brighten up the bed! My son was very sad he didn’t get one, maybe I should get him one of these cool Go Home Junior cushions from Little Obsessions?

These funky pillows ($34.95) are a perfect addition to a kids bedroom, playroom or any other little hiding place where your child likes to sit down and relax. They are part of the My Escape range, full of stylish homewares for hip kids who like using their imagination. I know my kids would come up with endless stories using these cushions as props, the designs may be simple but that makes them super versatile for storybuilding.

Also part of the range are these gorgeous My Escape Tree Bookcases ($59.95), what a lovely way to store and display your child’s favourite books. There is room for ca. 20 books of different sizes, make sure you keep this lovely bookcase away from the bed or the kids will never go to sleep! The bookcase is made of high quality birch plywood and measures 34cm, there is also a very cute red toadstool design available.

If you love the My Escape cushions as much as I do make sure you hop over to the Little Obsessions blog, this month they are giving away THREE of these beautiful babies to one lucky entrant. Now how’s that for a cool prize?

Chocolate bunnies, eggs and chicks, glazed hot cross buns with fruit or chocolate, it looks like the shops have turned Easter into Sweeter. As nice as all these treats may look the sugar content is often a lot less nice and many parents are searching for alternative gifts that won’t cause upset tummies, bouts of hyperactivity and a trip to the dentist. If you are looking for a cute Easter gift that looks sweet but comes without the nasty side effects take a look at these special edition Pillow Pets.

Many families have already met Pillow Pets, the cuddly combination of a loyal furry friend and a comfy pillow. My youngest loves having a snooze on her Pillow Pet. Pillow Pets are available in lots of different styles and sizes and especially for Easter four new characters have been added to the range. Keep your eye out for the purple Fluffy Bunny, pink Cuddly Bunny, white Thumpy Bunny and the cute yellow Puffy Duck.

Of course these four new additions are just as huggable and snuggly as the rest of the Pillow Pets family thanks to the ultra-soft chenille fabric. Don’t worry, they are machine washable so mums will have no trouble keeping them clean and they’ll be ready for more cuddles in no time. From pillow to pet, from pet to pillow, it takes just a second with the simple velcro tab so kids can do it without help.

Pillow Pets make perfect companions for little ones, they can take them everywhere! In bed, on the couch, in the car, on holidays. Be careful as they will soon ask you for another furry friend, and another and another. From ladybugs to dinosaurs, dogs to pandas and butterflies to pigs, there are currently 18 Pillow Pets designs available so there is lots of choice and new designs are being added all the time.
