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...

Now, isn't this dreamy? Still in development (you can't get your hands on them *just* yet), these retro styled, typewriter-inspired keyboards by Lofree have our hearts fluttering! Complete with satisfying mechanical key sounds and soon-to-be available in a bunch of almost edible colours, we're joining the queue. You can find out more about them and sign up for updates at the Lofree website

This just might be one of London's most Instagrammed art exhibitions of 2017! Ending on 18th March, you still have time to take a trip to the Victoria Miro Gallery to see Do Ho Suh's 'Passage/s' for yourself. Inspired by the idea of 'home' (as a place we live but also as something we feel and experience), Do Ho Suh has replicated the architecture of places he has lived and worked in colourful, translucent fabric. We're pretty sure you'll say, 'Wow!'. 

And because we're feeling extra colourful this week, this feels like the perfect time to introduce you to LA-based sand artist, Naoshi. Yes. Naoshi creates remarkable artwork using shiny, colourful sand ('sunae' in Japan). She creates beloved characters that are bonkers and bright and really rather wonderful. Through their expressions, they each tell little emotional stories about what it's like to live in the world when you feel a bit different. You can see more of Naoshi's excellent sand illustrations on her website. Enjoy!

Since the last edition of The Loop, Dick Bruna, creator of iconic children's character Miffy, died. That news made us feel sad. During his 60 year career, Mr. Bruna produced 124 picture books - 32 of which were about Miffy and went on to be published in over 50 languages and sold over 85 million copies worldwide. 

We thought it might be nice to leave you with Five Minutes of Miffy...

Create A Sleep-Friendly Bedroom for Kids

In an ideal world, your kids’ bedroom would be specifically designed for and exclusively set aside for sleeping. However, it’s more likely that your kids’ bedroom doubles/triples/quadruples up as lots of different things - a play room, a study, a lounge - and a bunch of other things as your kids’ imaginations dictate. So - how on EARTH do you make sure that, when it comes to creating the best sleep environment for your kids, that their bedroom is up to the job? We've got a few tips for you! 

The Loop #39

This week in The Loop we share a bunch of bea-u-ti-ful Easter egg DIYS, we give Tom Pigeon's 'Play' print series a big round of applause for being brilliant and we say thanks to London design studio Honey & Toast for making scooter friendly school bags that'll last the test of time!
