Every week, we bring you a little roundup of things we’ve seen on the internet we think you might like. You know, just to keep you in The Loop! 

This week, we’re excited to finally get to see the finished results of Japanese artist Misaki Kawai’s colourful collaboration with high street store, Tiger! Intended to encourage play for children and adults, we can’t wait to see up close how Misaki has translated her art into fun products.

 

And speaking of things that surprise and delight adults and children, what about THESE? Made by Straight Line Designs and inspired by the postmodern architecture of Palm Springs, these miniature, wall-mountable butterfly houses are designed, not just as dolls’ houses for grown-ups, but as functional shelf storage for small items like keys, specs, mugs - that sort of thing. Pretty dreamy.

 

 

This is just about the cutest thing we’ve seen this week. And we’ve seen kittens AND babies. Find out more about about the Danboard Cheero portable device charger at Lazy Oaf.

 

 

We paid a visit to graphic arts festival, Pick Me Up this week. Isabel + Helen,Alec Doherty, Dan Singer and The Clay Collective were among our favourite bits. If you’re nearby and want to take a look for yourself, the event runs at Somerset House, London until 2nd May.

The Loop #27

This week in The Loop, we're in full festive swing! We take a nostalgic look at 100 years of iconic toy design with photographer Kevin Fox, we drool over beautiful Woodplay building blocks by Oliver Helfrich and we make New Year resolution party hats with Walk In Love. THEN we click 'play' on our Happy Holidays playlist and get ready for Santa's arrival.

The Loop #26

This week in The Loop we make snazzy Shake It! confetti gift wrap with Mini-Eco, we share a super simple, minimal mess Christmas decoration DIY that ticks that 'festive family activity' box nicely AND we take a look at some of the kid-friendly theatre shows running in London during the Christmas holidays.
