Top 10 Toys for Christmas 2015

With Santa about to make his whirlwind trip around the globe we thought we might share the Top 10 Toys that have been sailing out the door so far this month.


10. Bajo – Educational & Aesthetic

Educational toys have been at the top of the list and Bajo do not disappoint. Bajo is a family-based Polish design and manufacturing company, founded in 1993 by Wojciech Bajor, an academic architect and set designer.

The factory, which is located in a scenic region at the foot of Polish Carpathian Mountains, introduces sustainable solutions to
the toy creation process.

Have some cheeky monkeys in the house? The Bajo Jungle Puzzle might just tame them a little:

Never forget a face? The challenging Bajo Crowd Puzzle will do just fine:

Wii Sports old news? Bajo Mini Skittles may just fill the void:

Bring your fishing trip indoors with the Bajo Fishing Set:


9. Didn’t you always want the Christmas Tree in your own room?

We’re glad to report with this exquisite glow in the dark Christmas Tree decal set from Mimi’lou you now can.

The removable adhesive decals apply to smooth surfaces and add such a beautiful element to your little one’s room.

8. Care for a set of wheels with a sustainability twist?

The good folk over at Wishbone have teamed up with the Cannons Creek Opportunity Centre and to Water Safety New Zealand by including their original artwork on a limited edition Wishbone Bike depicting Tangaroa, Polynesian God of the Sea – powerful, nurturing, fierce and sacred.


7. Cook*ng up a st%rm

We sincerely hope you don’t have a mini Gordon Ramsey in your home just yet, but the Micki Bistro Mini Kitchen might be a good introduction to the field..

2. Old School Cool

These Shooter Games from I’m Toy provide hours of fun whilst improving motor skills and who doesn’t love a bit of competitive gaming on Christmas morning?!?




 

1. Numero 74 – Come hide with me, come hide, let’s fly away

Whimsical, wondrous, hand made and downright beautiful, Numero 74 has kept us so busy here at KID this month that we can hardly keep up with the demand. With it’s growing popularity and each collection topping the last, this stunning brand is certainly capturing the hearts of many.

We’ve never seen a Teepee as gorgeous as the Numero 74 Teepee

And for the ‘fly away’ part you can’t go past these stunning fairy wings.


 

And that just about wraps up our most popular toys for Christmas this year!

Spotlight on Oeuf

Team KID are thrilled to announce we are now a stockist of Oeuf!

There may be some who ask, who is Oeuf?

In a nutshell, Oeuf evokes the image of simple, clean and intuitive design – the core principles we love so much here at Kids Interior Designs

Oeuf Merlin 3 Drawer Dresser Sparrow Birch 3

Starting with the birth of their first child in 2002, designers Sophie Demenge and Michael Ryan believe in designing world class products that offer true value to consumers without ever compromising on quality. From making a conscious choice to manufacture in Europe versus China, to offering their clients furniture that is not only high quality but also multi-functional.

Oeuf Perch Loft Bed Birch 5

Oeuf use natural, renewable, recyclable materials that emphasize conservation and lead to environmentally sound products, all whilst employing eco-conscious manufacturing processes that promote sustainability.

Recently, Oeuf have also had some exciting new releases:

Elephant Cot
Oeuf teams up with Spanish designer Carlos Tiscar to create the Elephant Cot, a cot that can be assembled with minimal hardware in 10 minutes.

Oeuf Elephant Cot Room

This cot was designed to be a fun addition to a nursery and to make the lives of modern parents easier. The Elephant combines the design sensibility of Tiscar, a Spanish artist, with Oeuf’s experience making safe and sustainable baby furniture.

River Twin Bed

The Oeuf River Twin Bed’s clean lines make it a perfect fit with any kids’ style.  The River Twin Bed also features a little bench at the foot of the bed which provides a spot for kids to relax and read, or doubles as storage for books and toys.

Oeuf River Bed Birch 5

Sleepovers are made simple with the River Trundle Bed, which tucks neatly away and can be used to store blankets and clothes when friends aren’t around.

Play Table & Chairs

Art projects, tea parties, and snack time are all more fun in kid-sized proportions. Stylishly simple yet wonderfully inventive, the Oeuf Play Table set makes a lovely addition to a nursery or play room, and features durable, eco-friendly finishes with an easy-to-clean laminate tabletop.

Top 10 Toys for Christmas 2014

It’s that time of the year and rightfully so everything’s buzzing with excitement and Santa has his Elven folk on overtime.

Here at KIDS we’ve put together a list of our fave picks for Christmas 2014 which even includes a way to get your all important lists to the North Pole!

In 3, 2, 1…


1. No Christmas would be complete without a sweet set of wheels.

Our Early Rider Lite is a perfect addition to Christmas morning’s chaos! Suggested for ages approx 20 Months – 3.5 Years the Lite is a great balance bike starter and the quality of the Early Rider range is second to none.


2. Lost your balance recently? Here it is:

Areaware Balancing Blocks are a lovely little spin on classic building blocks and have some real character – check out the vid. We’re betting it’s not just the kidlets that get a kick out of these.


3. Solvej Swings

The Solvej range can bring the local playground to your lounge/verandah/carport/tree in no time at all. Designed for Indoor or Outdoor use, the toddler swing suitable from 6 months to 6 years.


4. What’s that? I can’t hear you over the volume of this RAD Bluetooth Speaker

WOW is an understatement really… Kakoii WOW Bling Bluetooth Speakers have POP! (no pun intended, actually yes it was – just don’t tell anybody). They throw out 85dB we even use these ourselves both in the shop and also when out and about. Did we mention ‘kakoii’ is Japanese for ‘cool’?


5. How does Santa know what to bring? HERE’S HOW!

The lead up to Christmas simply would not be complete without a letter (or three? Revisions are important you know) to Santa and the Make Me Iconic Post Box is the perfect way to get those wish lists & letters straight to the North Pole!


6. Up the creek, with 2 Paddles

Pinball at it’s most convenient.  Just plonk your Space Pinball game smack-bang in the middle of your living room for some family competition – but who’s keeping score anyway?


7. Hide and seek no further

Wanna hide? Such Great Heights Wonder Tents are the pick of the crop – just gorgeous! These cleverly designed tents can also be converted to a clothes rack when you’re done hiding.


8. Playable ART Ball anyone?

We’re just going to let the video do that talking for this little gem..


9. Welcome to the house of fun

New to KIDS is the Lundby Dollhouse range. Completely customisable, from the furniture to even the wallpaper these unique pieces promote endless hours of imaginative play and even include a child-safe 4.5 volt lighting system.

For some inspiration head over to the very talented blogging mum Chloe Turston – Uberkid Instagram page here to see her monochrome take on the Smaland Doll House. And if you prefer a little colour we recommend checking out Kreativa Karin (Creative Karin) on Instagram here


10. Oh Micki You’re So Fine!

Have the kidlets cook you up a storm Christmas morning with the Micki Bistro Mini Kitchen.  Compact, Retro and even includes the kitchen sink.

Spotlight on Plyroom

Loft 1

You know, sometimes you chance across a range that you just know is going to be a game changer.  Introducing Plyroom, the most exquisite furniture we’ve seen to date and boy, does it pop.

Designed and made in Italy from European Birch and Beech plywood, Plyroom is unique, contemporary, sustainable and (most importantly) super-cool.

L6_KidsSingleBed_005__17590.1382525349.1280.1280

Plyroom furniture features Low VOC finishes and plywood sourced from responsibly managed European Birch forests.  Have we told you about the fixings yet?? no? Oh, no metal screws or brackets – Plyroom uses a precision cut joinery system and wooden joinery components, genius.

Castello 6

Designed to grow with your child, your Plyroom furniture will be evolving with you through the years.

Ava 9

Ava 3

Ava 2

Me Nook 2

Our faves here at KIDS:

Ava Cot – Versatile

Ava is a special kind of something. Not only is Ava a cot, Ava is also a toddler bed AND a desk.  Yep, when you’re all done needing a cot and toddler bed you can then convert Ava to a desk to use in the kidlet’s den, the study, anywhere.

Singolo – Sleek & Modern

With a compact footprint and designed low to the ground Singolo Single Bed promotes floor play and is perfect when moving on from a cot to a bed.

Happy Place – Perfect partner for all Plyroom beds

Here to brighten your day – say “hello” to Happy Place. The most friendly bedside table/storage you’ll ever see.  Happy Place uses Plyroom’s ingenious fixing system to create a lovely little character.

Castello Bunk – Wow

Well, Castello Bunk Bed is truly the Bunk of the year! More than just a place to sleep, it adds a playful element to your little one’s room. Add the Castello Bunk Bed Curtain for a hassle free Cubby, or the Plyroom Trundle for easy storage

 

Elegant, sustainable and playful furniture with a modern Nordic style.  We just LOVE the entire range from Plyroom, but don’t just take our word for it – with so many pieces on the floor here at Kids Interior Designs pop into store today and see for yourself!
