For once I’m thinking that pigeons can be cute and aren’t just flying rats! Those pigeons are from Kate Sutton. Her Etsy shop is here and you can see more of her work here.

This wouldn’t be the best gift for your vegetarian friends kid… or it could be if they’ve got a great sense of humor. Since my last post about plush, my daughter has actually started to like plush toys… this would make a perfect favorite!

If you’re looking for an inappropriate (yet funny) gift for a newborn, you could go for a plush bottle of Jaggermesiter. Would the parents be happy if this is becoming their kid’s favorite toy? I’m not sure, but it’s so much funnier than a rabbit or a teddy!

I’m a silly mum desperate to get her daughter to love plush toys so she can play with them! Could she get attached to a slice of bread or even better a toilet paper roll plush? Heidi Kenney from MyPaperCrane is creating funny and unusual plush toys for kids and for adults. Her weirdest creation: tampon plushies. It could make a funny gift, I just have to figure out which of my friend could deserve such a gift!

It looks like that child of mine has to learn to love plush toys so I can finally buy some! I’ve found new ones that are just adorable from Belgium based studio Plush. They say: “Plush is a sparkling new children’s clothing + accessories brand. It’s huggable. It’s cute. It’s raw and somewhat rock’n’roll!” They’re also designing great clothes, if she doesn’t want plush toys I can always buy her one of those nice tee.



I Heart Guts, Love Your Inside June 28, 2009

I Heart GutsMy daughter does not care for toys and care even less for plush toys, she’s much happier playing with the remote control, my wallet or a spoon. So I don’t have any excuse to buy her a plush toy from I Heart Guts and then keep it for myself… and it is a pity. I particularly love the Kidney Plush: When Urine Love. I just can picture my husband and myself checking before leaving the apartment: “do we have the kidney?” “where did you put the kidney?” “did you put the kidney in the diaper bag?”
