We bring you a regular little round up of cool things we've seen on the internet we think you might like. You know, just to keep you in the loop...

This week our friends Avril and John have launched their new product, Ding, on Kickstarter. Not only is Ding the coolest, cleverest, most beautifully designed door bell we've ever seen, but it is also a particularly useful home addition for parents. 

Get this. By linking your Ding door bell with the Ding app on your smartphone, you can answer your door from anywhere! Maybe you're playing in the garden with the kids or maybe you're upstairs trying to feed the baby and you're out of earshot of the door bell. Maybe you're on the school run or out at parent's evening and expecting a delivery. Whenever visitors ring your Ding (that was fun to say), your bell will chime inside the house - but Ding will also send an alert to your phone allowing you to talk to your visitor from wherever you are.

And, and! It gets even better. To avoid visitors waking up sleeping babies, you can activate Ding's 'Quiet Time' function which mutes the indoor door bell chime but still alerts you via the app that somebody's at the door. Imagine that! You can find out more about Ding on the Kickstarter page.


We're looking forward to getting our hands on a copy of this. Published by Cicada Books, DIY ABC is Eleonora Marton's first children's book and with its bright, bold, fun illustrations it looks set to become a BleepBleeps favourite - with grown-ups as well as with the kids! Crammed full of activities and space and opportunity for children to customise the book and 'fill in the gaps' in their own way, the end result is a super-personal ABC book to treasure long after they've mastered the alphabet.  


Look at these guys! Introduced to us by Invisible Creature, these 'Stack & Scare' building block sets can be rearranged and rebuilt to create a whole bunch of different monsters. Halloween activity sorted! Designed and made by Uncle Goose Toys from FSC certified bass wood and using non-toxic inks, these critters are bound to be bags of fun.


 And, inspired by The Campaign for Wool, we leave you this week, with five minutes of Autumnal cosiness and a collection of squishy, schmooshy blankets that you can buy as 'baby blankets' then claim as your own later! (In order of appearance: Giannina CapitaniDusen DusenDonna Wilson and Hilary Grant Knitwear).


Until next time!

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.
