Tired of cute bunnies and chicks? How about zombies?

Are you sick of bunnies, flowers, and butterflies yet? Okay, we’re not either, thanks to that extra-long winter. Still, we’re year-round zombie fans, especially when they’re adorable and delicious.  The Undead Zombie Cookie Cutters from Perpetual Kid are a slightly skewed way to celebrate the rebirth of spring. Or that’s how I’m seeing it. Each set comes with three cookie cutters made from food-safe plastic that you can even toss in the dishwasher. Whether you prefer your shambling corpses to be hunching, walking, or running, your kids will have tons of fun icing them and adding bloody red sprinkles....

Minimalist movie posters with maximum appeal

In a world dominated by explosions, CGI, and overly detailed movie posters, we’re loving this affordable collection of posters with an iconic and refreshing spin on our favorite films — and our favorite films to share with our kids.

From movies you love watching with your kids, like My Friend Totoro, Charlotte’s Web, and Fantastic Mr. Fox, to movies that still give you nightmares,...

Pretty pink chocolate bunnies, with no icky artificial dyes

Chocolate is delicious, but brown can get so blah during a pastel-pretty holiday. These all-natural bunnies are a great way to think pink without downing a single drop of dye. Our pals at Nutty Steph’s have crafted a line of yummy bunnies just perfect for the Easter basket or springtime snacking, but they’ve left out one very important ingredient: that pesky, possibly cancerous red dye that makes my kids act completely deranged. Hurrah! The Pink Chocolate Bunny is finely crafted of white chocolate with just a dab of peppermint and freeze-dried raspberry dust, which results in a lovely, natural...

Nice narwhal necklace!

Owls, foxes, hedgehogs. They’ve all had their day. But if you want to stand out from the creature crowd, we recommend narwhals. Not only are they adorable, but they’re the unicorn of the sea! And this one’s handmade…and way affordable. Which is pretty magical. The Narwhal Necklace from oneeyeddog on Etsy is hand-sculpted and painted with several layers of glimmering gold, making each one unique. The wee narwhal is around 1.5″ long and hangs from an 18″ gold-plated chain. We can’t promise the narwhal will actually be magic, although Vikings once traded their unicorn-like horns for gold. And did...

Personalized picture frames with extra pop (and pow and kaboom)

Whether you need an awesome sibling gift, something bright for the grandparents, or just the perfect picture frame to go with that superhero bedroom, we think this one brings a lot of POW-BANG-ZOOM for the buck. We love Psychobaby because it’s a small, hip, mom-run business that doesn’t dabble so much in cutesy stuff. And their personalized picture frames rock the house just like we’d expect. This sturdy, wooden Pop Art Picture Frame has got a bit of a glossy shine to the front, plus an easel back for easy propping up on shelves or window ledges.P ersonalize it...

Oppan Euro Style: bold, bright kids’ accessories with real zing

Pink and baby blue? Bunnies and choo-choos? Not today. We’ve got a hankering for cozy, slouchy hats, slippers, and newborn mittens with vibrant, European style that we’ve just found.   The owner of Rattle Tat goes straight to Sweden for the sort of bright, iconic fabrics it’s hard to find over here in the States. Clouds, stars, buses, monkeys, mushrooms and more, work for both genders in a stretchy mix of 100% cotton and Lycra. Each piece is designed and handmade by a Swede living in England, which means prices are in pounds and shipping is a bit high....

The perfect pop of color: vibrant voile scarves for almost spring

It’s almost spring. Almost. That’s what I tell myself as I pull on knee-high socks, boots, and a coat. I’m not ready for full-on pastels, but these gorgeous, block-printed scarves are a great way to dip a toe into the bright, carefree colors of spring.  The founder of Rikshaw Designs, which we introduced to our readers years ago, has traveled the globe to bring traditionally block-printed textiles into the design world. We love the luscious bedding and clothing for women and children, but I’m especially digging the 100% cotton voile scarves. Especially for spring. Because some of us can’t...

This Waldorf rainbow toy just needs a pot of gold

It’s St. Patrick’s Day and that means it’s time to put green food coloring in the pancakes, the mashed potatoes, and the toilet. What, your leprechauns don’t tinkle in the potty as they hunt for gold? But if you’d like a pretty, sturdy, and long-lasting rainbow to celebrate the sweeter part of the leprechaun myth, we think this toy is worth its weight in gold. This Waldorf-style homemade rainbow stacking toy from Apple n Amos on Etsy will bring smiles long after the leprechauns have fled. Handcut of hardwood, hand-sanded, painted with non-toxic soy-based paint, and sealed with a...
