Faces For Baby by Aussie mum, Katey Love, is a delightful soft black and white book specifically designed for newborns.
Research has shown that newborn babies respond well to high-contrast patterns and colour combinations, making black and white the obvious choice. Katey has utilised her graphic design knowledge (and Mum skills) to create this concertina-style cloth book which attracts and keeps little ones’ attention due to the high contrast imagery. The book can be positioned beside bub so they can easily see it and as they get older and more mobile, the book can be safely handled and played with.
What is it about a new notebook that every girl loves? Is it the look, feel and smell of a book that has never been opened, let alone written in? Perhaps it’s the thrill of owning a special book where the day’s events, thoughts, dreams and happenings can be recorded for years to come.
Today we have a collection of gorgeous girl’s diaries, journals and notebooks for your little daydreamer…
Create a lovely Christmas tradition and wonderful childhood memories with The Elf on the Shelf by authors Carol Aebersold and Chanda Bell.
For so many years, kids have been wondering how Santa knows who has been naughty or nice… well, the secret is out! A little elf on the shelf reports back to the North Pole with all the goings on!
Santa’s patient elves hibernate until a family reads The Elf on the Shelf, gives their elf a very special name, and registers their adoption online. Once named, each elf will receive its Christmas magic and become a part of that family’s Christmas each and every year.
Touted as the best thing since The Night Before Christmas, this gift set includes a North Pole pixie-elf, hardbound children’s book and keepsake box. Available from Bambini Pronto for $39.95. Awww…
In World War II, the Home Guard was comprised of approximately 1.5 million British volunteers who were ineligible for military service. This was usually due to their age (which is why they were also referred to as ‘Dad’s Army’) and their role was to guard important places such as Britain’s airfields, factories and explosives stores.
Just like the Home Guard, this resin soldier‘s job is to stay home and protect. Your important and cherished books will be safe from the threat of overly heavy novels, excessive space, slamming doors and inquisitive little fingers!
