Target Pillowfort launches today, with adorable and affordable kids’ decor that parents will love too.

The exciting new Target Pillowfort collection of kids’ decor launches today at last, and has come along at just the right time. There’s something about being cooped up inside all winter that makes me want to redecorate. Every room. I’m getting bored with the same old stuff especially in my kids’ rooms, which are a mix of remnants of their nursery decor and a couple of cooler, tween-friendly pieces I’ve picked up here and there. Sadly, a full-house re-do isn’t in the budget. But some of the fresh designs in the Target Pillowfort collection might be. From pillows to artwork, full bedding sets, accent furniture, and those cute...

Could the new toddler bedding from Aden + Anais keep your kid in bed longer? Hey, we’ll try anything.

I have a four-year-old. And in spite of putting him to sleep in his own bed each night, I wake up to his sweet little face beside me in my bed almost every single morning. I’m okay with that, but I am ready for whatever magical solution may keep him in his own bed once in a while so I’m willing to see if the new Aden + Anais toddler bedding bed in a bag does the trick. This is the same, soft Aden + Anais muslin so many babies these days are being swaddled in (my son, included), but it’s brilliantly designed so that the flat...

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,...

Gorgeous quilts that look great beyond the nursery

One of my most favorite items is a quilt made by my great-grandmother, handed down to me by my grandmother. There is something so special and meaningful about a handmade quilt, although quilting for most people seems like a talent reserved for other people. I feel like every nursery should have a pretty quilt on hand. Barbara Perrino of BPerrino Quilts creates modern baby quilts at a price worth celebrating. All of her lovely quilts and quilted pillow covers are designed, cut and pieced one at a time. You can use these quilts as extra bedding or to just...

The most eco-friendly, “aw”-worthy organic nursery bedding probably ever

You know, it’s ironic. I’m on the precipice of moving my baby into his first big-boy bed (sniffle), meaning big boy sheets, and it’s only now that I’ve found all the most adorable organic nursery bedding for the perfect nursery. Smiling Planet is a CMP favorite–we’ve long been impressed with the small company’s devotion to teaching children about the environment via its truly special and truly eco-friendly housewares. Smiling Planet’s new bedding line is no exception. The Smiling Planet Casa Collection made with 100% organic cotton, so it’s super-soft, and the whimsical designs on every item — from the...

Pink bedding for girls, hold the cavities

I’m a big fan of gender-neutral colors, especially for the nursery. For my boys’ room I mixed in the requisite blue with lime, red and brown, all of which I consider both boy and girl-friendly. When I saw the new ultra-modern pink nursery designs from Olli and Lime, I actually had a change of heart–they are that cool. We are already big fans of the toddler bedding from Olli and Lime, which is best known for its gender-neutral nursery designs, so when they introduced their first “all about pink” collection (our name), we were interested to see how they...

Now I lay them down to sleep

My organic-eating, organic-dressing, organic-playing kids sleep on regular old foam pillows. There, I said it: they spend half of their lives with cuddling up with chemical-filled foam. Not one of the greatest horrors of childhood, of course, but still, I’m so glad to have found an organic pillow alternative When I learned the great pillows by Madii & Dyl online–an awesome Australian kids’ line that’s now available in the US–I was quite excited. They’re sized perfectly for little heads and necks (there’s a toddler size and a child size) and made from 100% organic latex, so they’re naturally hypoallergenic...

Pillow Pets – The cool, cotton, fair trade kind

I’m fortunate to have a daughter who takes violin right next to the Blabla Kids storefront in Atlanta, so every week, I poke my head in to say hello to their lovely staff and design team, and take a peek at what’s new. And just wait until you see the cuteness that’s now available on their website. Their new Hold Me Tight pillows instantly made me think of Pillow Pets, except they’re cooler, softer, and made by fair trade Peruvian artisans like all of the Blabla Kids goodies we’ve featured here on Cool Mom Picks. I love the whimsical...

New crib bedding sets from Maclaren – the inside scoop from David Netto himself

I’m a firm believer in color therapy, especially when it comes to kid’s rooms. So when I saw the bold and peppy new crib bedding sets from Maclaren, which happens to be the complete opposite of their very chic and very white nursery furniture, my mood magically began to lift. [don’t miss a huge awesome giveaway after the jump!] “If you look around at children’s bedding, it’s vastly light blue and light pink,” Maclaren’s chief designer (and modern design icon) David Netto explained to me. And who could disagree? “I wanted to create something that didn’t exist in the marketplace, which was...

Here a dot, there a dot…

I am fond of the polka dot. As a little girl, I had a white dress with red polka dots and it was my absolute favorite. Now, as a mom, I tend to restrict my dottiness to dressing my daughters and for their nursery. One of the many fabulous attributes is it mixes well with everything else in a nursery. They’re playful, modern and just sweet enough. So, when a CMP fave, Winter Water Factory, designed a new organic collection of sheets exclusively for Land of Nod featuring polka-dots, I have to admit, I felt a little giddy. [don’t...

Welcome to the Jungle House Pillow

My kids (probably like yours) aren’t lacking for stuffed animals. But when I saw the amazingly adorable Jungle House Pillow from Toronto’s So Chic Gifts I knew I could totally justify getting them this handmade pillow-and-stuffed-animal combo.  Made from beautiful recycled fabric, each one-of-a-kind soft, squishy pillow features three little critters tucked into little pocket homes, each one a different combination of cloths and textures. It’s totally fun for kids, since the stuffed animals can be taken out of their pockets at playtime or put back in for cuddling at night. If their bed is already crowded with lovies, or if...

Organic crib bedding to grow with

Here’s what I’ve learned: Your daughter may be all Thomas, Thomas! now but in no time at all, that train love will become Abby Cadabby, which becomes Uniqua which becomes I only like things that are purple and turquoise but mostly purple. Which is why I can’t say I love character bedding for kids. But I do like the Canadian-made Wee Organics crib bedding. The solid color-blocked organic cotton interlock bedding sets are quite affordable at $159 for a crib sheet, skirt and blanket, especially considering how nicely they’ll transition when you turn that convertible crib into a toddler...

Sweet dreams are a good gift for moms, too

My parents can’t help it – they see something cute for the kids and they buy it. I suppose that’s The Prerogative Of The Grandparent. My only hope is that their version of cute is my version of cute (and that it doesn’t happen to be loaded up with cadmium). Well recently my kids’ Grammy scored with a stop at the boutique of fabulous local kids’ playspace Appleseeds, and the procurement of two deliciously soft cuddle pillows from Angel Dear. These half-moon shaped pillows are actually cuddly friends like bunnies and puppies and sleeping elephants, and are apparently stuffed...

It’s a blanket! It’s a pillow! It’s a Balob!

My son, the one who is afraid there may be a monster under his bed, is totally willing to curl up with a Balob, Joop or even a Doot as he heads off to dreamland. Who can blame him: Muddy Cloud’s adorable cast of characters, which we’ve loved on their childrens hats and gloves and their finger puppets, are much more cuddly than monstrous. And now they’ve been transformed into a line of limited-edition Pillow Blankets in time for the cold winter. These soft, squishy, sizable pillows measure 16″ square, a great size to bring on long car rides...

The inflatable toddler bed that just might get us all a better night’s sleep

Loved my ginormous collapsible playpen / portable crib when the kids were little. Loved. Though I admit to doing a happy dance when I no longer had to lug that thing around to hotels and overnights at the grandparents. But because we’re still big travelers, when I caught a glimpse of the Tuckaire inflatable toddler bed on at the ABC Kids show, I jumped at the chance to take a closer look. [Eds: The URL has been updated] In a word: awesome. Especially in these days of staycations and houseguests and single hotel rooms for whole families who might...

For more pleasant dreams, try buckwheat.

Who ever knew that something like the perfect toddler pillow could be so instrumental in getting my daughter to sleep in her own bed? But that’s just what happened with the buckwheat toddler pillow from the lovely mom-run Honeydumplings and I’m giving credit where credit’s due. Of course, we call it the “good dreams pillow” which might have had something to do with its magical sleep-inducing properties, but I’d imagine it was also a factor of how its made: The pillow is wrapped in a mat that’s stuffed with natural buckwheat hulls to just the right size – just...

Dwell bedding provides some sweet girly dreams

When I went on the hunt for new toddler bedding for my daughter recently, I was amazed at some of the adorable options out there these days. One that really caught my eye is the Paper Dolls duvet set from Dwell Home Furnishings. The bedding features the classic paper dolls in fresh modern colors that are sweet and girly without being frilly. I love that this set says “girl” and not “baby,” which I think she will appreciate as well. And it will easily transition with her from little girl as she grows into a (gasp!) big girl. Well,...
