With school back in full swing it won’t be long before the first birthday invites start coming in. A little gift here, a little gift there, I make sure we have a well-stocked gift cupboard all year around so that I always have a quick present on hand. If your shelves are looking rather empty after the Christmas period here’s your chance to stock up big at bargain prices:

It is with a sad heart that Coccinella will soon be closing its virtual doors so they are clearing out with a huge 50% off storewide. This fantastic offer is valid for a limited time only so stock up while you can!


From sweet baby gifts to cool kids toys or games, no matter who you are shopping for you are sure to find something gorgeous in store and with such great prices you will be left with more money in your family budget.

Betty the Tightrope DollAs you may remember we have the gorgeous Betty Tightrope Doll (was RRP $44.95, now $22.45) and she is so very cute, she would make the perfect friend for a special little girl. With her sparkly tulle tutu and purple velvet cape decorated with stars Betty is pretty as a picture and offers lots of dressing up fun. Betty comes packaged in a lovely gift box, ready to be presented to a lucky recipient.

Ebulobo Pound a Ball WolfIf you have a cheeky tot who loves exploring and working things out this colourful Crazy Wold Pound a Ball (was RRP $64.95, now $32.45) by Ebulobo is just what you need. Children can practise their fine motor skills by placing the three balls in the holes and give them a tap with the hammer, after which they will re-appear in the big mouth of the crazy wolf. It’s one of those toys that will keep kids busy for ages, they’ll want to try it over and over again.

When I first wrote about Plus-Plus (now from $4.95) it was a huge hit, this fun and interesting take on the traditional building block encourages kids to use their imagination and come with creative designs. It’s a brilliant boredom buster on a rainy day and suitable for girls and boys. In the current clearance sale you can pick up a pack from as little as $4.95, what a steal! Plus-Plus sets make really great gifts and are available in basic, neon or pastel colours.

I can’t believe it is already a year ago that I first introduced you to the awesome Plus-Plus range from the Coccinella store. I was so excited to tell you about these quirky shaped building bricks from Denmark and one year on we still love them, I purchased our kids the big 400 pc box and they regularly tip all the Plus-Plus pieces over on the rug to build, create and play for ages, individually or together.

Plus-Plus 3-in-1 Pastel 220

Shaped like two plus symbols (hence the name) this funky building toy adds a whole new dimension to building fun. You can build upwards, sideways and even completely flat, Plus-Plus will really get those little minds working. Designed with a soft, smooth yet strong and durable material Plus-Plus is a fantastic tactile activity for children that really encourages them to get creative and think about the bigger picture (it does require a bit of patience!).

Plus-Plus 3-in-1 Neon

The new Plus-Plus 3-in-1 Mini building sets are available in two different sizes: 220 pieces ($19.95) and 480 pieces ($29.95). You can choose from three different colour combinations (basic, neon and pastel) to suit both boys and girls. Each Plus-Plus 3-in-1 set includes instructions to make three great models to get you started but obviously you can use your own imagination and building skills to design many more fantastic Plus-Plus creations, the options are endless!

Move over Lego, Duplo and MegaBloks, it is time for a refreshing take on the classic building block. All the way from trendy Denmark Plus-Plus has just arrived on Australian stores and you can find it fresh on the shelves at gorgeous online store Coccinella.

Plus-Plus Midi Box

Plus-Plus, the latest building craze from Denmark

Designed and made in Denmark PlusPlus is quickly becoming one of the hippest building toys around. Plus-Plus blocks have the shape of, you guessed it, two plus symbols, sort of like a traditional puzzle piece but with square corners. Made from strong, solid, durable material that is free from Phtalates and PVC the Plus-Plus blocks are perfect for children, they can’t break them or squash them and they are made to last.

Plus-Plus Midi 100The smooth rubbery texture gives them a very pleasant feel which is very important for young children and it makes it easy to slide the pieces into eachother. At the same time the blocks ‘grip together’ well so your child’s artwork doesn’t just fall apart. Whether kids want to recreate or invent a specific shape or image or prefer to just connect the blocks, it is great fun either way.

Plus-Plus House

My 4-year old twins (and of course miss 2) have not yet worked out how to build something that resembles anything but that doesn’t seem to bother them in the slightest. They experiment with balance, colours and patterns and absolutely love it! Plus-Plus is a great tool to help kids to use their imagination and get creative. At night time I found myself playing with Plus-Plus and time just flew by as I tried to build things, an awesome boredom buster (or excuse not to do laundry).

Plus-Plus PastelPlus-Plus is available in two sizes (Midi and Mini) and comes in multiple colours (Pastel, Basic and Neon), so it’s a perfect toy for both boys and girls and it suits different ages too. Prices start at just $9.95 and pack sizes range from 100 pcs all the way up to a huge 3600 pcs. This biggest Plus-Plus kit contains all three colour combinations, it would be an ideal size for eg. schools and kindergartens and is still very well priced.
