The most exciting thing to do with your kids, is to let them explore in nature and just let them play wild and freely. It’s more entertaining then any movie to watch, just to see them using their imagination and see what they are coming up with for creative play!
I went out with Mr L to our local little beach and let him explore and play with his Miann & Co (formerly known as Ladedah) pirate bunny. The amazing black checked knitted bean bag from their newest collection ‘Bon Voyage’ became a FANTASTIC pirate ship, and Mr L was sailing away to a deserted island with his best friends ‘The Pirate Bunny’. He had so much fun to explore and play.
I think every generation is telling their kids that when we were kids we went out in the nature and played and build shacks and stayed out all day and used their imagination and creativity. 
I remember my grandma used to tell me her stories about how she grew up on a farm with 8 siblings. When I grew up in the 80's the older generation complained that we were watching too much TV, and now people are concerned about the kids ipads and Internet … I don't think there is anything wrong with technology. It teaches us a lot of amazing things, but it’s still important to  'just be a kid ' and explore the nature and use fun, handmade toys to create and play with.

Miann & Co is an ever growing Australian company that makes unique and beautiful knitted toys and décor for the minis, while catering to every taste! As their company grew, the owners decided a name change was due and this is when they recently announced that their new name is Miann & co. From the widely known knitted unicorns and swan princesses to pirate bunnies and dragons, to minimalistic bean bags and flowery knitted rugs. It has all stayed the same, same quality, same commitment to environment and the people making their products: Only the name got changed.
 -The Knitted Bean bag is so cute and comfortable. Leon just loves chilling out on it. 

The Miann & Co  range is handmade from the comfort of the makers home in Asia by a passionate team of women.The women work from home to enable them to work around the childcare and their family's need, and the work is generating a fair income which in turn benefits the entire community.

Enjoy & wish you all amazing weekend ahead with lot’s of creativity!
