When you have a child, one of the most important things you focus on is the nursery. Seriously, one would think that the future happiness of that child is completely wrapped up in how that nursery comes together. But if you have “modern” sensibilities sometimes it is hard to find things that fit your taste. Well unless you want to spend their entire college fund on decorating.
The guys behind A Modern Eden felt the same way. So they created some great kids stuff that are design minded. Let’s start with the flash cards because they are my absolute favorite!! Each animal graphic is so well done and they are printed on thick, quality stock so they can take a bit of a beating. I am so excited for Silas to get to the age we can use these to teach him animals and animal sounds. Absolutely adorable.
Want to save the earth and look good doing it. I think Al Gore would agree that both are equally important. Made out of 100% recycled cotton, their tote bags are perfect for taking to the grocery store or, better yet, farmer’s market. Choose from an adorable apple print or a hip tree print.
Let’s get back to the nursery decorating. How about using this gorgeousness. It makes me want to redo one of my girl’s rooms in a peacock theme. Or a purple theme. Or a purple peacock theme. But since I just did both of their rooms, I got this froggy to use in Silas’ room. How much do I love that his name is Webster?! Or maybe you like a bit of a jungle theme? Check out Henry the Lion. Can a lion and frog work into the same nursery? That might end badly for the frog… P.S. The posters come on heavy heavy paper and are custom screen-printed.
But wait, there’s more! Maybe you don’t want to redecorate or save the earth while you shop (shame, shame). I know your kids want this iPod app. Speak Piggy! is an insanely gorgeous learning game where you can scroll through the Modern Eden animals and hear the sounds they make, the names of the animals, the spellings, and the different habitats where they live. So. much. fun. And only $.99 so get thee to iTunes and order it for your kiddos.
