Personalized growth charts for kids from Tinyme: Oh the cuteness.

Before you start making more pencil marks on the wall, remember this: Long after the crib is gone and the tiny toddler shoes are replaced by giant adult-size sneakers, that growth chart you started oh-so-many years ago may be something you want to keep. So choose wisely. We have shared many awesome-looking growth charts over the years that we love and now we’ve found one more resource: The personalized growth chart decals from Tinyme, the stylish gift company that just keeps on impressing us. The decals come in six adorable styles that are fun and playful but won’t look totally out of place in an older-kids’...

Dream a little dream of dragons, bats, and narwhals.

Now you can put your baby to sleep with visions of fantasy dragons, hedgehogs, and even adorable bats (yes, they’re a thing) in her head. The handmade baby mobiles from Bee Janie Baby Mobiles feature all these creatures and more. You guys, they even have a mythical beasts mobile—you know, in case you have a Game of Thrones nursery in the works. Each mobile is handmade from felt, and most have somewhat unexpected creatures for a baby’s room. I mean, have you ever seen a mobile with bats before—the sleeping-in-caves kind, not the baseball kind? Me either, but I want one now. The...

The perfect kids’ chandelier, no lights required

Hanging a chandelier in your dining room or foyer can be gorgeous, of course. But hanging one in your kid’s bedroom or play room? Gorgeous–and totally unexpected. Especially when it’s a brightly colored acrylic kids’ chandelier from Nicole Ketchum, now in the Cool Mom Picks Indie Shop. Granted, these are just decorative chandeliers, so they don’t light up. But that’s even better, right? Since you don’t have to worry about wiring or outlets or fancy little bulbs, you can literally hang them anywhere. I like the idea of thinking outside the box (or house) and suspending a chandelier from a tree branch for an...

Mo Willems wall decals are here! (A.K.A. Don’t let the pigeon get his hands on the dry erase markers.)

Beloved children’s author and illustrator, Mo Willems, has been providing my kids and me with bedtime guffaws (seriously, it’s way beyond just a little tittering) since, well, since forever. So I can only imagine the kind of silliness that would ensue if we got one of the five new sets of  Mo Willems wall decals he’s created for Blik. Everyone’s favorite dejected pigeon is ready to up the bedtime ante with these hilarious wall decals that smartly include a few blank dry-erase speech bubbles so that kids (and parents, don’t forget the parents) can create wall-sized Pigeon stories of their own....

Our new favorite couple: aden + anais and Stokke. Aren’t they cute together?

We’ve been longtime fans of aden + anais and all their lovely textiles for our babies, plus the modern nursery furniture and stroller designs from Stokke are some of our favorites. So when we heard the two of them were partnering to bring us oval Stokke crib sheets for the Sleepi crib in aden + anais’s signature cotton muslin we thought it was a great collaboration. Time for a nursery makeover? Until now, Stokke has only offered their crib sheets in a range of neutrals—from beige to white to the very palest rose. Now you can find three of aden + anais’s most popular patterns—twinkle, lovely,...

Lucy Darling: If you have a baby, we dare you not to be obsessed

I’m in love–with closet dividers. I know, it’s weird, but I am. I don’t derive much pleasure from organizing, but these Lucy Darling closet dividers actually make me want to organize my baby’s closet. They’re so, well, darling. Available in multiple designs, each as adorable as the next, Lucy Darling’s closet dividers are thick, luxe and come in sets of eight from newborn through 2T.  Perfect for baby boys or girls and certainly cute enough for a cool little baby shower gift. However my one piece of advice before you buy is to make sure there is enough clearance between the closet rod and...

The fun 3D shelf that’s coming right at you

No matter how cool technology gets, there’s something to be said for a good old-fashioned 3D movie in which a shark tries to bite off your head. If I remember correctly, my first 3D movie was JAWS, which actually explains a lot. For my kids, it was Brave. And they were hooked, too. If your family loves a movie experience that includes paper glasses, this cool 3D shelf from our pals at Jellio would look fantastic on your game room wall or even in a cool kids’ room. It’s made of acrylic and features shelves mimicking the bright red...

Where do animals go when they’re dressed and ready? Onto a clock, of course.

I’m inclined to call this find the world’s coolest animal clocks. But then, I’m not sure if that refers to the coolest clocks featuring animals, or clocks featuring the coolest animals. Eh, hardly matters. Both perfectly describe the brand new zoo portrait clocks from our friends at Blik, featuring Barcelona photographer/filmmaker Yago Partel’s hilarious portraits of our furry and feathered friends like you’ve never seen them. Well, unless you’ve seen Partel’s photo series already.   If you look closely, there’s more to each photographic concept than just random animals looking serious in people’s clothing. The koala in a Hawaiian shirt probably looks like an...
