FOR JUST ONE DAY

We discover these lovely children’s dresses-up by For just one day: they are inspired by theatre, vintage aerialist costumes or eccentric explorers from the past. These clothes capture the spirit, innocence, and freedom of childhood, and obscure the line between clothing and costume. They encouraging children to play and wear pieces with creative expression wherever they choose!

IL MANUALE DELLE 50 (PICCOLE) RIVOLUZIONI PER CAMBIARE IL MONDO

il manuale delle 50 (piccole) rivoluzioni per cambiare il mondo in realtà è una cosa grande.
Le mie figlie mi hanno già sgridato: ho tenuto il manuale in borsa con al seguito bottiglietta d'acqua (ovviamente chiusa male) e l'ho già rovinato e ondulato.
Sembra che lo abbia già utilizzato per la mia piccola rivoluzione.
In realtà l'ho letto, ma la mia rivoluzione non l'ho fatta.
È un progetto di Federico Taddia, giornalista, autore, conduttore radiofonico per Radio 24, e Pierdomenico Baccalario, tra tante cose autore di romanzi d'avventura per ragazzi, con le illustrazioni di Antongionata Ferrari.  
Dopo i volumi dedicati alle 50 missioni segrete e alle ennesime avventure, ecco la rivoluzione.
Non e' un libro, è un vero e proprio manuale con tanto di busta contenente un documento molto importante.
Da mamma, da grande e da donna, amo le rivoluzioni del tipo, prova a rimanere sconnesso, a usare il dizionario, fai una ricerca senza copiare da wikipedia, non seguire la moda, cerca e dai buone notizie... ma soprattutto quella di passare la palla agli "scarsi". Penso da adulto che sia la prova in cui credere di più anche da grande e la più difficile da insegnare ai nostri figli.
Da non perdere. Anche per noi grandi.

These can easily be cut out to make toys and there are different colour codes for different ages.

Look at these archetypal pieces of furniture by Tom Frencken, a Dutch artist and designer who lives and works in Eindhoven.

We really love this unique family of furniture that is a bit cartoonish, but always recognizable and feeling familiar!
