Rad Toys For Rad Girls and Boys

I am always on the hunt for cool, unique and good quality toys for our babes. It is incredibly important to me to surround children and babies with toys and spaces that ignite their imagination and enable them to fall in love with imaginary creative play

I want to start by saying that my fiance and I Live in Ballarat, Vic. With our two gorgeous kiddlets Maxwell and Lillian. It is the coldest place on the Fu*#ing Planet I swear. So understandably we spend a lot of time indoors, which If you ask any Parent of A 2.5 year old boy and a 4 month old baby girl, can be a nightmare at times. I have never been a fan of to many plastic toys (crap) around the house because as you know it builds up and clutters every room if you let it, not to mention can cost the earth. We are huge supporters of small business as well as sustainable practices here at PPPparenthood so I have done a round up of some of our favorite toys and Decor bits and pieces that make our indoors life a little bit more exciting (and some that are on our wishlist).

WOAH. I think I have discovered one of the coolest, handiest inventions for Mums, Dads and bubs ever. If you have kids in between the ages of 6 and 18 months, you will definitely be able to relate to the horrific – ‘im just learning to move around/walk and my coordination is somewhat comparable to that of a newborn giraffe, but I will not give up until I am covered head to toe in bruises’ – phase.

Well the gorgeous Bridget, Mumma to Indi and wildlife warrior has come up with a perfect (and incredibly adorable) solution…TOTSOX! Continue reading

Maxis Monochrome Bedroom Makeover

Untitled-1

Hello Lovelies!

As you know, I have been making little purchases here and there, stock-piling black and white goodies for my big boys room upgrade. I know I want to focus on a monochrome theme but I also want to incorporate a bit of an industrial theme with lots of white! I love the Scandi thing that’s going a bits nuts at the moment but for some reason when I put all my ideas on paper they just don’t seem to fit that style.

I had no clear idea of where I was going style wise to be honest! so I thought its about time I put together a mood board on Photoshop to bring together all the bits and bobs I have bought together with the style I have in my head! Continue reading
