Things I Love Thursday- A Modern Eden (Plus a GIVEAWAY!!)

TILT 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.

flashcards 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.

peacock 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.

I have a feeling more things are coming from these creative dudes, so keep your eyes open. And in the mean time, I have some Modern Eden stuff for you to win. One lucky winner will get their choice of one of three unique posters, their choice of one of two totes, and a free download of Speak Piggy!

Comments

  1. I’m not sure it’s legal to do 2 links — I didn’t see anything about it in the guidelines. Feel free to delete one if its not kosher — I will not be offended. Great giveaway. This is my TILT participant comment. It’s going to take me a second to pick my favorite thing.

  3. Yes, i love the flashcards. They would be cook on the wall too. I love that the postcards come on heavy board, b/c here in earthquake country, we don’t put heavy frames with glass over the bed.

  7. I totally know what you mean about decorating a nursery. I don’t have any children yet (or any on the way…I don’t think!) and I’m always thinking of ideas for a nursery “some day”.

    Thanks for the link up again…I look forward to it every week!

    I love the Henry the Lion picture..perfect for my son as I try to convince him to move out of the crib and into a big boy bed so his sister has a place to sleep.

    I like the apple cotton tote.

  14. Okay, it might sound silly, but I really like the free owl wallpaper for both the iPhone and your desktop! I wish they made it as a poster because it would be perfect in my daughter’s big girl room, which is going to have owls.

  16. Just linked up my doggie love! And I too love it when a product for kids is tough yet stylish. It’s so fun to let kids be kids with their toys instead of worrying they will break it. (I’ve lost me quite a few flashcards to baby teeth. Sigh!)

    I do love reusable totes though. Those are great! But sadly, no IPhone here…

    Take care!

  17. I really like the flashcards, and I know that my 13-month-old son would enjoy them! He loves regular playing cards a lot, so something educational would be even better. These products remind me a lot of the Charlie Harper products.

  18. I participated in TILT! :) Sharing the ice cream love!
