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...

Our Instagram feed has been positively popping this week thanks to The Color Factory. We wish we could click our heels and transport ourselves to San Francisco and see it in person. 

Brought to life by the creative brains behind Oh Happy Day, The Color Factory is a two storey interactive exhibition that celebrates colour in all sorts of fun ways. There are installations that let you taste colour, smell colour, even listen to colour - and, well, then there's the giant yellow ball pit, super-sized doodle walls, colour-coded shopping and a whole tonne of other ace rainbow-themed attractions. With visitor tickets now sold out, join us as we follow the story from afar on Instagram

We're just a teeny bit obsessed with this. 'Nico Eats' is a toolkit for kids that helps them establish good eating habits and positive, adventurous relationships with food. Guided by food inventor character, Nico, kids are encouraged to engage all five senses as they explore food, try different flavours and learn about ingredients.

In the 'Nico Cooks' set, Nico helps kids make their own dishes using utensils designed especially for them. There's a shaker for mixing, a masher for mashing, a twister tool for shredding, cool shape cutters and tonnes more. And then in the separate 'Nico Tastes' set, there's even a funnel for playing flavour guessing games and a stethoscope to listen to the sounds of chewing and digesting! 

'Nico Eats' is created by Royal College of Art graduate Florencia Sepulveda and you can find out more about the kits here

Seriously. Look at those jolly little faces! Japanese designer Tsuyoshi Miyazaki creates a little wooden world of kids' playthings that are beautifully designed, lovingly crafted and injected with pure joy. The stackable teeth toy caught our eye this week and then the Atelier Fu website introduced us to these smiley fellas! See more here.

The Loop #50

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!
