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...

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.

The Loop #25

This week in The Loop we try to brighten up these dark, chilly Autumn days! Craig & Karl remind us to have faith in optimism in their latest installation, we get excited about our first trip to the brand new Design Museum and we start our search for interesting and unusual Christmas gifts for the small people in our lives. Oh - and we leave you with five naughty minutes of comfort food (or, rather, DELICIOUS BAKED GOODS), courtesy of Sprinkles for Breakfast!

The Loop #24

This week in The Loop we coo over the new TinyBop app that's designed to support kids' socio-emotional development, we get boggley eyed over Yoni Alter's snazzy sneaker puzzle sculpture and we tell you how excited we are about 'Adventures in Moominland' - the UK's largest ever Moomins exhibition.
