Le Toy Van

A few months ago I introduced you the lovely Petilou toy range, designed especially for the youngest of the family by the talented toy specialists at Le Toy Van. I was immediately smitten with the cute designs and quality materials and after seeing their latest creations I have become an even bigger fan, check out what’s new on the Petilou toy shelves:

Petilou Sensory ShapesWith miss Hattie’s first birthday coming up in just 4 months I have my heart set on this gorgeous wooden Sensory Shapes Set (RRP $54.95, 12 months+). The colours are bright, the pictures sweet, the shapes interesting and the sounds intriguing, I can see how this would keep her little mind busy for ages. There is just so much to see, feel and hear, I can’t wait to watch her unwrap and explore this pretty gift.

Petilou My Little HouseOne of my other personal favourites is the adorable My Little House shape sorter (RRP $28.95, 12 months+), doesn’t it look divine? This pretty wooden house is home to 6 colourful shapes and it’s a fabulous way to introduce young children to different shapes and colours. The shapes are the perfect size for small hands and children will love the challenge of matching each shape with the right hole in the red roof.

You can find these Petilou treasures, and other items from the Le Toy Van range, in store right now at Australian online boutique Sweet Creations, delivery is $9.95 Australia wide.

Modern Twist

If you’re a mum you no doubt know all about ‘mealtime madness’. It’s that crazy time of day where you try to prepare a healthy, delicious meal for hungry, fussy, impatient kids and battle your way through dinner with as little mess and as few arguments as possible. I won’t lie, our mealtimes are generally far from peaceful but there are some little tricks to help keep the peace. Check out these awesome placemats by Modern Twist:

Modern Twist Mark Mat

Of course this is not an ordinary placemat, the super cool Mark Mat is a printed silicone place mat that can be decorated over and over again with the use of washable or dry-erase markers. What an excellent way to keep little artists happy as they wait for dinner!

Treasure Chest Mark MatThe Mark Mat ($39.95, includes 4 dry-erase markers) is available in 7 fun designs to suit boys and girls of all ages. From animal ABC to traffic and from Australia to London via Paris, which one is your favourite? Personally I love the Treasure Chest Mark Mat with its great under water theme, our kids always enjoy learning about sea life so this would keep them entertained for ages.

Mark Mats are made from food grade, hand silk-screened silicone and are free from BPA, lead, latex, phthalates and other harsh chemicals. After play and dinner simply wipe clean and they’re good to go for the meal!

You can find the Modern Twist Mark Mat range in store at Sweet Creations, shipping is $9.95 Australia wide.

Paris at your fingertips

Sweet Creations

After spending a week in Paris last year the kids are absolutely intrigued by everything French. They practice simple French words and are masters at spotting Eiffel towers and Arc de Triomphes in catalogues, books, stores and many other random locations. Luckily there are plenty of French inspired toys and decor around to keep their latest interest alive, this is my current favourite:

Paris Machi

This gorgeous Paris Machi Tiny Town Play Set (RRP $49.95, ages 3+) bring Paris city centre into your Australian living room. Using magnetic boards, an Eiffel tower statue, Arc de Triomphe building, metro track, signs and carriages children can design their own version of Paris, adding finishing touches with chalk on the play mats as they go. I know our kids would absolutely love to recreate our holiday and what a lovely way to remember seeing these monuments in real life.

You can find the stylish Machi Tiny Town Play Sets in store at Sweet Creations and you can choose from Paris, London and Japan. Which destination makes your heart beat a little faster?
