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...

First up this week - these guys. Could this be the cutest drinks packaging ever designed? Yes. But - could it also be so cute you'd never want to open it?! Um, yes. 

Now, we've been trying to find out a bit about these little dudes but it would seem they are rather mysterious! We *think* (and apologies to everyone/anyone if this is proven to be way off the mark), they were designed in collaboration with creative studio Sticky Monster Lab for Korean hotel chain YouUs but try as we might to buy online, we just cannot seem to find them. Cute AND elusive! 

 

We're big fans of Sago Mini toys + apps and lately we've been getting on board with their Mini Planes game. You can find out more about that here. But this week Sago Mini caught our attention for a slightly different reason - these limited edition Tuck Me In quilts! Made in collaboration with textile designer Libs Elliot, each colourful, limited edition patchwork quilt has four little pockets. Each pocket is a little bed for your kids' favourite soft toys! the quilt encourages your kids to act out their bedtime routine with their toys, helping them establish good habits. So, they put their toys to bed, read them a story, tuck them in and say goodnight - and then you put THEM to bed, read a story, tuck them in and say goodnight! Cute, right?  

 You'll know by now that we are suckers for a big bold dose of colour - so when we spotted Brit+Co's blog post dedicated to rainbow themed play ideas, we just had to share it with you! Rainbow sponge art is up there with our favourites. You can find a bunch of others here. Happy playtime! 

 Until next time!

Newborn Baby Bath Time? Create a stress free washing routine

Trying to convince your wiggling jiggling newborn baby that bath time is a soothing and beautiful bonding experience to be enjoyed (you know, like it says in all those blinkin' baby books) isn’t easy. Add to the mix a tired parent who’s only just getting the hang of baby bath time themselves (you) and things can get a bit tricky, right? Take a deep breath. It’s going to be fine. 

Sleep-Friendly Bedrooms for Happy 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!
