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...

Meet Kid O Toys. Based in New York, the team at Kid O are dedicating their design talents to making an ever growing series of kids toys that promote creativity and discovery. There are SO many ace things in their range but we particularly loved this Rise & Shine Set. Perfect for ages 3+, the set encourages imitative play and kids get to act out their morning routines and practice their social interactions. It also looks like a bunch of colourful fun! 

This Way, That Way is the latest picture book by artist + illustrator, Antonio Ladrillo.Featuring brightly coloured shapes with smiling expressions, the reader opens, closes, folds and unfolds the pages, to reveal colourful characters that relate to one another in new ways with each flip. We love the bright colours, the clean lines and the specially die cut + pre-folded sections. It's true. This book is infectiously jolly. Find out more about it here

This week in The Loop we marvel at Melissa Kaseman's gorgeous photography project, Preschool Pocket Treasure, in which she documents the contents of her three year old son's pockets. We also step back and appreciate KITRA's excellent large scale murals and environmental installations and we contemplate following Handmade Charlotte's instructions on how to make a DIY 'Off The Grid' play house!
