iimo trikes for your tots

Thumbnail image for iimo trikes for your tots

I’m such a sap when it comes to tricycles, I can still remember the big red trike when I was little, it’s one of those things you never forget. Even though I have a feeling I didn’t ride it all that much, it’s one of those still images from early childhood that’s burned forever into […]

to play, or not to play with your food

Thumbnail image for to play, or not to play with your food

As a general rule, most parents I know would probably agree that we shouldn’t play with our food at the dinner table. And yet, when Birdie decides her half-eaten bread is shaped like a dinosaur – ROAR – I usually go with it. Maybe that’s why this Dinner Winner plate makes me smile so much. This goal-oriented […]

Mamas and Papas with Donna Wilson

Thumbnail image for Mamas and Papas with Donna Wilson

Now where the heck was this when Birdie was new? She claims she still wants to ride in a stroller at the ripe old age of 5, but I just don’t think she’s going to fit in one of these. Donna Wilson is a long-time favorite. She’s such a whilrwind of textile design, and with […]

april showers bring may umbrellas

Thumbnail image for april showers bring may umbrellas

Birdie’s favorite umbrella is broken. Not just a little bit broken, but a whole heckuvalot broken. Of course, she still demands to use it. Even though she’s walking around with a half-cocked umbrella, the other half smushed flat against her head. She’s a determined little girl. But it makes me sad to see her trying […]

ride’em high, ride’em low: modern ride-on toys

Thumbnail image for ride’em high, ride’em low: modern ride-on toys

I’ve been shuffling through the internet for good Toy Fair 2014 coverage. So far, I’m finding the most information on Instagram – social medai rules! I was amazed to discover that the adorabel Jelly Bean Racer (top of post) is made by Little Tikes. More shocking? It’s only $19.99. Seriously. It reminds me of the […]

Keeping myself and my family healthy is a major part of my life. Over the last several years I’ve become very aware of the ingredients in the food we eat, the toys we buy, and the products we use in our household. That’s one of the reasons why today – instead of toys or design […]

experiencing something new

Back in the day, many moons ago, I used to be what I like to all “Cross-Platform”. I could handle both PC’s and Macs, and was proud of the fact that I had no allegiances. My first job in the big bad world was at a sign shop (the name of it is just too […]

In a scant two weeks I’m getting on a plane and flying to Salt Lake City, UT, to attend the Altitude Design Summit. I am beyond excited! But I’m still debating how to tell my daughter I’ll be gone for four long days. She’s been pretty attached at the hip lately, and I know it’s going […]

Esther is one of my oldest blogging friends – and one of the only ones I’ve actually met in person as well! We have a very similar aesthetic, but she is clearly the decor guru, while I slide more towards playthings. Make sure to stop by Buy Modern Baby to see a slew of decorating ideas […]

It’s going to be a fabulous week of Guest Posting Goodness here at Small for Big, I’m taking a little break to … well, frankly, to clean the house. It’s my way to ring in the New Year: getting organized, prepped and spiffy for an amazing 2013. I’m hoping to find some time to finish […]

putting the mobile mojo in mobiles

Travel-sized musical mobiles have always been the ugly cousin, at least the majority of them. While it’s possible to find some stunning beauties in the ceiling-hung variety of nursery mobiles, somehow travel-sized models are always lacking. Like, severely. So Ferm Living’s Music Mobiles are , heh, music to my ears! And to my eyes, because […]

Oh lovely squishable huggable soft sweet-smelling babies. I was talking babies all afternoon on a playdate yesterday with a couple of expecting moms, and now I’m itching to squeeze one more than usual!  Add some pieces from Little Hip Squeaks and I think any baby would be absolutely impossible to resist. Chevrons are having a […]

shiny new notebooks – my top faves

Thumbnail image for shiny new notebooks – my top faves

There are lots and lots of wonderful things about fall. But one of my favorites has got to be the plethora of new notebooks that are available. Or, perhaps more importantly, the ready excuses I can find to buy said notebooks! Even though Birdie is in preschool – and has no immediate need for notebooks […]
