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...

Let's start this week's edition of The Loop with a nice big blast of colour, shall we? In lieu of sunshine, we need all the brightness we can get - and children's illustrator Jana Glatt is on hand to help us out. Originally from Rio de Janeiro but now based in Barcelona, warmth and good vibes just pop out from her glorious illustrations. These cheery little extracts come from a book called Um Abraco Passo a Passo. Now, we don't speak Portuguese, but we *think* this roughly translates as A Step by Step Hug which is just about the sweetest thing ever. The story follows the adventures of a baby learning to walk.

Well now, isn't this clever? Danish company Leander have created a range of children's bedroom furniture designed to adapt as your kids grow, lengthening the usual lifespan of the traditional baby crib by years! Made from solid oak and built to last, the idea behind the Linea collection is that it starts out as a crib, adapts to a toddler bed then is easily reconfigured as a child's day bed or as a mini couch for children, teens or even adults. Nifty! 

This handmade paper-craft installation, cheekily called 'Gatos Furiosos' or 'Angry Cats', is designed and made by Estudio Guardabosques aka creative duo Carolina Silvero and Juan Nicolas Elizalda. Based in Buenos Aires, the pair make all sorts of creatures and objects from paper - all with bags of personality and big dose of humour. The dog lover/cat lover divide at BleepBleeps HQ was thrown aside while we chuckled at the giant 'Gatos Furiosos' gleefully making a right mess of an entire paper city!

This week in The Loop the kids flex their critical and creative muscles as they get ready to take part in Anorak Magazine's Little Editors Scheme, we covet the colourful furniture project by Muller Van Severen and our penchant for a Lego brick gets a boost with Dutch design workshop Brikkon. It's a good 'un!

In our first post of 2017 we learn about the heartbeat simulating wearable that helps regulate mood and banish the January blues, we find out about G.F Smith's mission to find out the world's favourite colour and we get excited about a trip to The Magical Lantern Festival in Chiswick.
