BANDIT KIDS SS14 proudly presenting



Proudly presenting; BANDIT KIDS::: 
I have waited sooo long to post this blog because I wanted to wait till the collection "on the run" was up for sale! Well, it's here and it is magnificent. I am truly honored to have received some amazing pieces from this fabulous new aussie brand. Made fairly in Indonesia, these incredibly cool and super soft pieces (that you can feel the great quality of immediately upon opening your parcel) have hit a spot in the instagram fashion corner and not without reason; the illustrations and designs are flawless! Perfect for everyday use and play, these are threads your kids dont want to take off. (Trust me; i put mine i these today and there was treats involved in bribing them off again!)


I cannot say enough good things about this brand except for this: they come in a very very limited number, so at least try to grab one or two pieces before they are gone. Forever!

LUCKYBOYSUNDAY S14


The danish duo, Camilla x 2, who make up Luckyboysunday have really gotten an incredible fanbase worldwide, and not without reason: their handmade, 100% baby alpaca pillows, throws and dolls are beyond description soft and captivating.


I actually wondered what the fuss was about until I held BonBon Rose in my hands and couldn't leave the store without her. So therefor, let me talk about who BonBon is in our family. 


She makes miss W happy when miss W is sad. She keeps her warm and comfortable at night. They sleep in the same bed and when miss W wakes up, its with a big smile, even giggles, to see BonBon there next to her. BonBon takes a beating too, but nothing BonBon cant handle. She is sturdy and soft at the same time. She is a superhero sometimes. She can fly sometimes. She is the one, single one toy, that Mr C knows is only miss W's and so H E leaves t h e m alone. And t h a t is pretty golden. Especially to miss W I'd say. 
We love our ( o u r ) BonBon. 



I have even painted a painting inspired by one of their pillows. I mean, you have to go touch something from LBS and you 
W I L L know what the F U S S is really about.

TIP TOEY JOEY. A kids shoes icon!





The world of childrens footwear is a massive one and the task of finding proper footwear for your little one is essential to their foot developement. 

1) the shoes have to give support
2) be comfortable
3) if the child is under 2, the soles need to be soft on the mostly worn shoes
4) if the child is over 2 the sole still cannot be too firm, but soft hard soles are ok.

One really expects that baby and childrens shoes have been made with careful thought to the kids prescious feet, but this is far from true: shoe companies want to make money and sadly, so many make those money on parents ignorance to what proper footwear means. (Just like with baby carriers!)

Well, to break it down easily: adidas shoes (yep, all of them except their soft soled crib shoes) should not be worn excessively by little feet under 2 years. Their soles are far to firm for the feet to develope well. Of course once in a while wont harm the feet, but every day use of such firm soles might. And thats a chance Im not willing to take. This also goes for any shoe with a hard sole that you cannot bend without using strength: if you cant bend the shoe between your pinky&ringfinger and the thumb, they are too firm. You should also be able to bend them sideways!




This brand give childrens feet exactly what they need: really soft rubber soles.
For 0-6 months the sole is like the picture above, and for 6-24 months they have a full soft squeezable rubber sole. These shoes are unlike any other! Absolute kids shoes perfection! They look fab and feel even better. Their design vary from cool sneakers to lovely mary janes. And all are great for little feet. 
The rubber soles are supersoft but gives an amazing grip (my girl (18 months) can climp up slides with these shoes -she has these black hi-tops

If you are shopping summer or winter shoes for your child, and especially if your child is between 0-2, I would lovingly suggest to check out Tip Toey Joey and go for your fave. You will not regret it and your kid will love them!

(There is an ocean of colours and styles, Im just showing a few below.)
