Sweet meats - plush toys for carnivores

meatmedleyplushtoys.jpg

Mate, don't ask me, I'm a vegetarian. But if your kid has a love affair with meat, I can just about see you might want to purchase a plus t-bone, rasher or ham at Sweet Meats.

Prices start at around $18.00 for a rasher of bacon, and go up to about $90 for a 'meat medley' featuring four cuts.

Folding wagon

folding%20wagon1.jpg

This folding wagon wasn't designed for those with kids, but it looks like it could come in very handy for parents - whether you're bringing a million toys to the park, taking back library books, schlepping home with the groceries or going on a picnic.

It comes with a canopy, and the great thing is its capacity to fold up, making it very useful for those with limited space. It carries up to 120 pounds, and while I'm certain it'll advise you not to put your kids in it, well, when they're really extra tired, it would be tempting, no?

$159.00, with $5.00 shipping.

Hasbeens

Swedish Hasbeens

I'm never very sure about heels on girls' shoes, particularly as I believe girls want to hop and spin and run and jump and... well, you know. But on the other hand, there are always the more formal occasions, and Swedish Hasbeens have a bit of a cult following among those in the know - for comfort, durability, and looks. Plus, I guess there's the argument that walking on heels is a skill you might want to teach your girls early (I never got the hang of it myself).

For girls, they're available in pink, yellow, read and blue - open or closed toe - and now also in these silver and 'au naturel' versions. Stockists are here.

Lorette trailer

lorette-trailer

It's minimalist, robust and just plain beautiful - the Lorette trailer comes from UK store SCP, one of those London design shops with a perfect touch.

Clean Plate Club cookbook

Clean Plate Club cookbook

Lively illustrations and an all-pervasive feeling of joy - surely that's going to get any kid fired up about cooking good food. I was excited to see that the Clean Plate Club cookbook is illustrated by artists from the Lilla Rogers agency, which always guarantees sterling work.

Recipes have been submitted by children, and the proceeds will go towards the No Kid Hungry campaign. The book, bound in a laminated calendar-style format, retails at Land of Nod for $19.95. Shipping is gratis.

Back to school scarves

sara%20carr%20pencil%20scarf.jpg

You can feel it in the air - back to school season. It's more years that I care to remember since I left the school gates forever, but I really think that feeling, as September approaches, never leaves you. The anticipation of a new classroom, perhaps a new pencil case and new shoes...

Is this pencil scarf (above) from Sara Carr spelling it out just that little bit too unsubtly? I don't know: I rather like the idea of heralding the first frosty mornings with a thoroughly apt piece of neckwear - and I reckon that despite the touch of pink on the eraser, this'd be fine for girl or boy.

But if you prefer something less obvious, a flower scarf (above) is just as much of a treat and will keep little necks just as snuggly. The pencil is $66.00; the tulip $42.00, and shipping is just $5.00.

While you're there, check out Sara's beautiful tree cushions, too.

Handy wrist bands

times  tables bands

Caroline%20Lisfranc%20pen.jpg

I don't know about you, but round these parts, little plastic bracelets seem to be multiplying. Up until now, not literally... but check out these nifty multiplication bracelets by Caroline Lisfranc (we featured her t-shirts before).

Now clearly neither these, nor the even sneakier pen, above, is going to be allowed in the exam hall - but they might be a good aide memoir during the times tables learning process. At least they go some way toward making it fun.

British Cream Tea toy food

toy strawberries and cream

Here at Babygadget, we like to think that, if nothing else, we've steered the world's parents towards a comprehensive collection of the best toy food out there. Today, however, I present to you something quite unexpected: toy food based on some true British classics.

Are our global readers familiar with these things, I wonder? Well, surely everyone understands strawberries and cream, above (£15.00).

But how about Iced Gems, below (£16)? I'm not sure whether these tiny biscuits, each topped with a sugary peak, are known outside the UK. Believe me, this is a very good rendition.

I'm also impressed with the sausage roll, £16, below. Apparently each one is slightly different, but all feature a degree of authentic-looking burnt pastry on top.

If you're at all familiar with Cornish pasties, sugar mice, Liquorice Allsorts, Blackpool rock, Fab ice lollies, Custard Creams or Jammie Dodgers - or indeed if you are just a mad Anglophile, British Cream Tea will provide some worthy additions to your toy food collection. Beware, though, because as you can see from the prices, such slavish imitation doesn't come cheap.

So, I guess the Bon Jovi fans all became parents...

Rockstar Birkenstocks

Once I had picked myself off the floor from laughing, I realised that the limited edition Rock Star Baby line from Birkenstock, designed by Tico Torres of Bon Jovi, could have been a lot worse.

I mean, sure, they include what is fast becoming the epitome of naff, the Swarovski crystal, and honestly, isn't the whole concept just a little bit nuts? But the actual shoes themselves are quite inoffensive, and as we all know, Birkis are brilliant for feet. Plus there's no doubting that little girls are going to love that bling. I give them a nonplussed five out of ten. No doubt Bon Jovi fans everywhere will be far more enthused than me.

Everyone Dreams of Peace colouring book

Everyone-Dreams-colouring-b.jpg

It is not often that we feature the back cover rather than the front of a book - but check it out, it's cute: "When you feel mean, you can draw your way to nice..."

If only we adults also had access to something like the Everyone Dreams of Peace colouring book, too. The world would surely be a better place.
