Every week we bring you a little round-up of cool stuff we've seen on the internet we think you might like. You know, just to keep you in the loop! 

With half-term just around the corner, we're hankering after some holiday vibes - summed up visually, rather beautifully, by this illustration for Flow Magazine by Kate Pugsley. We can practically feel the sun on our backs just looking at it!

This week, Royal Mail revealed a fun, new collection of stamps designed to appeal to children and grown-ups. Created by London design studio Osbourne Ross, the new Animail stamps feature all sorts of cute illustrated creatures posed to look like they're clinging on to the edges of your envelope or parcel! Going on a half-term day trip? Pop these on your postcards! (We just can't get enough of those koalas!)

If you're in London, you might want to plan a gallery visit to Victoria Miro and the Yayoi Kusama exhibition. Installed across two locations, Victoria Miro East London and Victoria Miro Mayfair, the art show combines new and existing works by the 87 year old Japanese artist and offers a chance to experience Yayoi Kusama's giant pumpkin sculptures, mirror rooms, garden installations and polka dot paintings first hand. A visual (pumpkin) feast for you and your family! 

First came the adult comedy reimagining of beloved children's Ladybird books. Now Enid Blyton and The Famous Five are getting the same spoof treatment! The 'Enid Blyton for Grown-Ups' series launches in November. Written by Bruno Vincent, titles include, 'Five Go Parenting', 'Five Go On A Strategy Away Day' and 'Five Go Gluten Free'. Get ready to get your giggle on. 

Keeping it colourful, shall we take a look inside the Pantone Colour Factory? Just for fun? This ace behind the scenes video has been doing the rounds at BleepBleeps HQ this week. It's pretty dreamy (though the very thought of taking the Pantone colour test is a little nerve wracking!). You might want to gather the kids round the screen for this one...

Five Minutes of (OLD SCHOOL) TECH

This week we're getting our geek on and celebrating technology. Old school technology, that is. It's fascinating to see how the gizmos we use every day have developed over time and it's pretty exciting to see what happens when tech design of the past meets tech design from the present.

Here's your five minutes of... (OLD SCHOOL) TECH.
