When asked to pick my five favourite posts from the past year I actually felt a bit panicky. Really, how to choose from the many amazing things I get to write about working for Babyology? So after a few deep breaths and a long hard think here they are.
These fantastic looking Roomie dolls tick all the right boxes for my eldest daughter – not too girly, quirky and sure to get her friends’ attention. There’s fourteen different characters, all with great names like Tough Teddy and, my favourite, Trashy Tracy. These are dolls with attitude, which fit well in our house at the moment!
Next up, the furry Dedo notice board – write notes in the fur and stroke to erase them. Of course, it’s ridiculously impractical with small children around but just looks fabulous. It’s modern, cool and funky and I want one!
Continuing with the great-looking, pretty crazy items theme, my next favourite thing is the Italian designed Flying Carpet Rocking Chair. When I wrote about this last year, my daughter was a genie in her kindergarten musical and was obsessed with all things Aladdin. I would dearly like to have one of these in our family room to send her off on all kinds of adventures.
My next choice is influenced by a new addition to our family. My third daughter was born earlier this year and as soon as I thought about new nursery necessities I remembered these gorgeous animal nightlights by White Rabbit England. So charming, they remind me of all things English.
Finally, I just had to include a clothing range that really caught my eye. Chicken Rhythm are a great range of tees and backpacks for both younger and older kids which are quirky and eye-catching. Rock on!
