We completely fall in love with Poupée designed by Christina Mathea, a young mother from Greece with a theatrical background in costume design.
The Poupée couture is designed as an antidote to unoriginality, rebelling against fast copy-paste fashion and turning a kidʼs conventional wardrobe into a theater dressing room. Each Poupée collection introduces complete outfits, built-up around insightful scenarios inspired by childhood memories either real or make-believe. Handle with care, imagination and extra LOLs, what else?
Let's have a look at Mini Saya by Arper: a mini-sized chair designed by Lievore Altherr Molina with chromed steel sled base and curved plywood shell, available in several colors!

Who says it never snows in San Francisco? At San Francisco Museum of Modern Art there is Peter Fischli and David Weiss’ frosty sculpture, Snowman: a life-size snowman in a refrigerated case perfect for a once-in-a-lifetime holiday picture or that all-important selfie! How surprising!

ZÀCCHETE is a very very new brand. We are happy to announce ZÀCCHETE on our blog. Antonella, designer of the brand and mum of 2, told us the beautiful story behind this super idea. And we fell completely in love! ZÀCCHETE is a body underwear for newborn simple and innovative, which sums up the need for daily practicality in a simple gesture.
The movement of the closure from the crotch to the belly allows the body to grow with the child and greater practicality in use. Free of automatics, it can be used by those who want or need to remove the metal of their children's underwear...or they simply find uncomfortable the classic buttons.
Take your pleasure seriously! is the motto of Charles Eames forms, the starting point for the exhibition Play Parade at the Vitra Design Museum Gallery. It is the first exhibition project by the Vitra Design Museum that has been conceived especially for children and families. In a spatial installation full of fascinating shapes and rich colours, visitors can discover and experience Charles and Ray Eames’s understanding of toys as a precursor to great ideas.

Look how amazing is this landmark project for London Design Festival 2017: Villa Walala by Camille Walala is a boisterously colourful and invitingly soft-touch structure made from ‘blocks’ of vinyl, sealed PVC inners and highstrength nylon, adorned with Walala’s characteristic digitally printed patterns. The blocks will be inflated by fans, turning them from flat shapes into three-dimensional forms. They are the component parts of a huge architectural landscape that stops passers-by in their tracks and invites them to step away from the everyday, even if just for a moment. Very cool!

We love Sachiko Umoto, one of the most famous Japanese artists, who illustrated these cute books: she tells you through simple instructions the secrets to drawing. Her style is unique, simple, and cheerful. Let's discover her!
Let's discover W.I.M.A.M.P. a non profit capsule collection by Bobo Choses seeks to inspire both parents and children featuring kids drawings from around the globe on how to stop sea pollution. See how our children can be creative, seriously funny, and have strong awareness and profound respect towards the environment! Good job!
Look at Coclico furniture inspired by Montessori pedagogy, they are wonderful! The child has its room in the whole home and it can moves and acts independently and is simultaneously connected with adults.
Let's discover Tre by Uuio: a wooden toy system for children from the age of 3 can use to build different types of tree-combinations. The act of stacking trees encourages learning skills and helps concentration in a playful manner, fabulous!
