I am a strong supporter of DIY. I love making stuff and I firmly believe it is important for my kids to see the “behind the scene” of “stuff”. And there is two sides to that scenario too. One is to appreciate stuff more, because they will know the effort that went into making it. […]Read more, you know you want to!
My friend Dora teamed up with other two Budapest mums to create a toy that develops children’s emotional intelligence and helps even beyond that, because – it is a smart solution for conscious parents, – it is a source of income for women living in mothers’ shelters, – and it is friendly to our environment.

The story of Frida’s Tierchen began six years ago in Barcelona when baby Frida was born and her mom Maria Salamanca started dreaming and creating dolls that would accompany Frida during her childhood, giving priority to the quality of the materials and the design as a value.

Not only we made drawing robots, we also participated in setting the world record for the biggest picture drawn by drawbots. First we made a Mean Machine. We disassembled one of the toy cars we […]Read more, you know you want to!

I love them because they are pretty, they are soft (almost silky) to touch, they don’t smell and don’t make a mess out of either your kids hands or their drawings. Also important in summer, when […]Read more, you know you want to!
Playground season is on peeps. It’s been on since early spring, but now it is mud time, kids are going crazy, shoes are off, washing machines are getting clogged. Personally, I don’t mind my kids being dirty, I don’t even mind that those sand knee stain are impossible to wash out. If I’ve learned anything […]Read more, you know you want to!
Last week during my visit to Belgrade we took the kids to the newly opened Miksalište ice-skating rink. After some fun in 2-3 sizes bigger skates and what we were told is the best hot-chocolate in town I finally visited the famous Mikser house too.

This is just me swooning over what I feel is a perfect toy. After an overload of cheapo plastic toys you get dumped with during Christmas time this is my healing… zizai block – a toy made of beech tree is a result of collaboration of lammfromm and studio wanimokko“. Each block has gaps in […]Read more, you know you want to!
Ah, that Advent! Do you make calendars yourself? Load them with little gifts? I don’t, to be honest. I do try to mark the occasion, explain what the whole thing is about actually, but I don’t feel they need another reason to get gifts. Plus, they do it in their kindergarten, everyone gets a package […]Read more, you know you want to!
