I fell in love wit Ponge toys blocks sometimes last year. I totally, totally dig their retro design. The box for example is made of handmade cardboard paper but it is massive, which is so important when your kids literally bulldozer over their stuff. I know, I know, they need to be taught, but until […]Read more, you know you want to!
On Friday 10th Researchers Night took place in Budapest. We picked the funnest project ever to participate with. The Drawbot! 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!
We love Boya crayons, that’s no secret, but I wanted to tell you WHY WE LOVE BOYA CRAYONS. 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!
Of course it is deserted. No one in their right mind goes to the playground in 40 degrees Celsius at 2 PM. Then again, there is certain perverse satisfaction in having the whole playground to yourself. We were just on our way home from Museum of Illusions when we stumbled upon this empty, quiet playspace.

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!
Several dinosaur exhibitions are on offer at the moment in Budapest. Last weekend we decided to pay a visit to the Hungarian Natural History Museum and check out the giants of Patagonia, for following reasons: 1. A Dinoszauruszok Élete (Life of the Dinosaurs) at Millenaris seems too expensive. Yes, it features 50 moving dinosaurs and […]Read more, you know you want to!
English MAGYARUL Exhibitions I say, because one opened on Thursday at Mammut Shopping Centre and the other one at Köki Terminal, also a Shopping Centre. At first I though it was one and a same thing at two different points in town. However, I soon had to realize that although I live in approximate vicinity […]Read more, you know you want to!
Hi there, I am Boxy the Robot! They made me out of boxes, egg cartons, Makedo connectors, floral wire and they even some Christmas led lamps into my head. P also made me a trunk to carry his Teddy Bear friend we had visiting from his kindergarten. Friends. Hm…Do I dare?Read more, you know you want to!
Anybody who ever read this blog knows I am a little bit obsessed with cardboard toys. This tiny obsession of mine seems to have been passed on to my son(s). That, and re-creating the obvious:) I first met Villa Carton through their flip dolls and I soon realized majority of their products is actually made […]Read more, you know you want to!
Rainy day – but no problem. P has a list of ideas “mommy and me have to make”. Like A SPEED BOAT. He wants a speed boat, to ride the sea waves AND he wants to use ‘his making kit (Makedo) I wasn’t up to huge piles of cardboard yesterday, so I cheated a bit. […]Read more, you know you want to!
