Every week we bring you a little round-up of cool stuff we've seen online we think you might like. You know, just to keep you in The Loop. 

This week we kick off with the cute and brilliantly bonkers kids book, 'Vivian the Dog Moves To Brooklyn'. When Mitch Boyer super-sized his four-legged dachshund friend Vivian in Photoshop, he was so tickled by the results that he's turned his photo series into a 32 page story book designed to help kids better understand and cope with relocation and tricky periods of transition. The book was funded via Kickstarter and is in production right now. Hooray!

Thanks to Tatty Devine, the waiting areas, corridors and treatment rooms of the Children's Imaging department at The Royal London Hospital have been transformed. By installing a series of bright, colourful wall motifs themed around x-rays and bones, designers Harriet Vine and Rosie Wolfenden have created an environment for kids that's less frightening and more engaging. SO cool to see the jewellery brand apply their talents like this!

This week we discovered Pepillo. Founded by Celine Vernier, Pepillo is a small design outfit creating cool design for kids. From stickers and fun paper products to art apps for iPad, Pepillo's colourful, geometric vibes are definitely floating our BleepBleeps boat! We've been playing with Bigplic & Miniploc today. You can find it in the App Store. Using block shapes, you/your kids can 'colour in' cute illustrations, or use the shapes as 'stickers' to alter the illustration and make new stories. It's just too cute. 

With Carsten Holler's tube slide now installed at the Anish Kapoor ArcelorMittal Orbit in London's Olympic Park, we're seeing Instagram fill up with videos and photos of people whizzing their way through 178 metres of tube slide. YIKES! We're wondering if maybe this one is more up our alley... ;)

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.
