Every week we share a bunch of cool stuff we’ve seen on the internet we think you might like. You know, just to keep you in The Loop. 

Now, we know these are intended for our kids, but we’d be lying if we said we didn’t fancy a mini Discovolante car or a Testacalda tractor for our grown-up selves! Designed by Pierro Lissoni for Italian lifestyle + interiors brand, Kartell, these colourful, playful, modern designs are making us feel quite giddy.

 

36 Days of Type is a collaborative, online community project that invites designers, illustrators and graphic artists from all over the world to reimagine and reinterpret letters of the alphabet and numeric symbols. Over 72,000 images have been submitted since the project started. Take a look at the Instagram feed for a feast of tasty typography!

 

 

When baby Orson was born, new parents Lilly and Leon decided to do something creative (and a bit bonkers) to inject some fun into their weekends at home. By repurposing cardboard boxes and bits and bobs of domestic junk, they built sets, gathered props and made costumes - then recreated their favourite scenes from film and tv. Not only are the photos something special, the pun-tastic names are great too. Dark Knighty-Night, Tinytanic and The Neverending Laundry are just some of our favourites! Having started out as a fun family activity, Cardboard Office has been nominated for a Webby Award three years in row! 

Below: Potty Time, Excellent! (Wayne’s World), The Cardboardapest HotelGrease is the First Word.

 

The Hoop is a super handy new app that helps you find all the best family-friendly things to do nearby. You can filter recommendations by activity category, age of children, cost, travel time, local proximity, time of day - all sorts of things! The app lists family-friendly events and activities in London at the moment but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that The Hoop makes it EVERYWHERE!

Now, this wasn't intentional, but it seems we've looped in to some serious good vibes this week. From dreamy inflatable sculptures, cats on billboards and a teeny tiny pro-skateboarder, get set to feel good!
