I went to the shops this morning.  It was mostly uneventful, boring even, until the moment I spotted these uber-stylish baby Jodhpurs.  Exactly like a pair of Jodhpurs but a shrunken version.  How cool is that?  Just picture your  2 year old strutting around in these.  Add a pair of boots and you’re going to have the hippest baby on the block!  They’re from Zara in sizes  3-36 months and they cost £9.99 plus £3.95 delivery.  And if you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know that Zara now sell online.

Bye bye Brio Sleep Cotbed

October 26, 2010

"Brio Sleep Cotbed"

The ebabee likes blog has moved.  For more articles like this visit the all new ebabee likes blog.

I wanted to get a quick post in about these scrumptious cots from Brio.  The Brio Sleep Cotbed, like much of what Brio offer, is hot property!  But sadly they’re not going to be around for much longer.  So think of this as a farewell note to a nursery great!  If you’re super quick, you can probably just nab one.

The Brio Sleep Cotbed is lovely and roomy.  It measures 140cms x 70cms and starts life as a cot with 3 adjustable positions and eventually when your kiddee’s ready, remove all the sides and you’ve got a junior bed.  But there are other combos you can create in between.  We’ve got one and I love it for it’s smooth, sleek lines, the curved ends, the glossy finish and the hot colours.  Choose from happy, sunny yellow or raspberry red (they both look good enough to eat!).  The Brio Sleep Cotbed‘ll last a good 5-6 years and costs £249 with free delivery from the lovely Lula Sapphire.  It’s about the only place with any left.  Bye, bye Brio Sleep – we’ll miss you!

"Rokka Play"

 

While flitting about the Earls Court Baby Show,  I spotted the ingenious Rokka Play.  I got so unbelievably excited that I seriously nearly popped it!  Luckily I lived to tell the tale.  The Rokka Play is a boat, a rocker, a kitchen, a desk, a theatre, a table all in one.  I kid you not.

The Rokka is a wooden toy like no other.  It starts off as a see-saw sty-lee rocking boat for 2, flip it over and you’ve got a table and chairs for 2.  Turn it on it’s side, add the kitchen accessories and you’ve got a play kitchen complete with hob, washing machine, cooker, sink and more.  Then of course there’s the theatre pack. Add the bits and stage your own Westend spectacular.  All this without any tools, so even DIY no-hopers like me have no excuse!

The Rokka is a toy with humongous possibilities (I mean we’re talking blue whale proportions here).  Unleash a toddler or two, bring out the Rokka and watch them imagine things you never dreamed possible.  The starter pack gives your bambinos the boat, table and chairs and includes a mast, oars, a sail and cushions.  The main bit measures 104 x 38 x 43 cms, costs £234 and is suitable from 1 year on.  You can get the kitchen pack for an additional £70 and the theatre pack for £36.  OK, I agree, the Rokka Play isn’t the cheapest toy around but it gives you heaps of imaginative play options in one and think storage space too.  One toy = rocker, kitchen, boat, desk and more.  Add up the cost of buying all these (not to mention the bigger house you’ll need) and you’re guaranteed to be quids in!

I’m told they’ll be bringing out more packs in the future so you can keep adding and chopping and changing the toy.  The one I’m eagerly awaiting is the aeroplane pack.  But if you can see the possibilities that this toy offers, you can just as easily  don your own creative hat and ermm… create!

The Rokka Play is seriously clever.  The only limit is your imagination (an old cliche maybe but oh so true here).  Awsomeness has has hit the toy world!

Just Pants! Part ‘deux’

"Nappy pants"

 

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about some hilariously twisted nappy pants by Twisted Twee.  Suzi Warren the maker saw the post and sent me a pair ‘to adorn my toddlers bottom’.  Shortly after, some tudor red Henry VIII pants arrived in the post.  Disappointed I was not.  The fabrics super soft, the printing’s top-notch and ebabee no.1 loves wearing them above clothes, under clothes, on her head, it matters not just so long as they’re on.  Suzi – Thank you lots for adding a bit of twisted hilarity to the ebabee household and some unusual memories to our photo albums!

Go and check out Twisted Twee and laugh out loud!
