Not so recent media

Recently in preparation for our long road trips I visited the library and managed to borrow some older less current Country Style magazines . It is always a joy to flick through and spot one of our much loved toys . Can you spot our Amelia bear - avaliable here  Amelia would make the perfect gift for a little person this Christmas .

La de dah happenings

Beautiful sunsets 

What trip is complete to Adelaide with out a trip to the food market Spot the South African Borewors no secret what we ate for dinner. 

It has been a busy couple of weeks with two interstate markets one in Brisbane and the other in Adelaide . There has been much driving - much planning and all with two little people in tow. ( It is also very exhausting) . They have amazed me with there behaviour even with one 14 hour day.I am not saying that it is all rosy but the kids really get a lot out of the car trip and we enjoy spending time together as a family . I know that this post started with La de dah happenings and it really has got me thinking . Our little business was started to enable more flexibility with our children in the future (we have a long road ahead) and also a much need creative outlet for myself. Our business and family overlap a lot and I am proud that our kids can be part of what we are building - in a small way . So whilst we have been travelling around we have also been visiting some of our beautiful stockists . This is our first year of supplying to retail outlets and it really does give me a huge amount of pride to see our toys in so many beautiful shops . So for the coming days we are going to blog about some of our stockists . We quite often get asked where our La de dah toys can be purchased and hopefully over the next few days you will recognise a beautiful local shop close to you . So stay tuned and support our local retailers this Christmas. We will start with some of our Brisbane Stockists that we managed to visit . I have included a few happy snaps from the road trip to Adelaide . Do you have any road trips planned for Summer ?

It's no secret we love a road trip

It's no secret we love a road trip for our markets . This weekend we took the challenge of driving from Victoria's coastline to Brisbane with two kids and two days to do it in . I have to say it has been a huge amount of fun - the boys have been exceptional and it turns out they love a road trip as much as we do .

Photo shoot fun and animal masks

We had a photo shoot yesterday with the very talented Tara Pearce to introduce some of our playful and beautiful gifts for christmas .

I am so excited to be sharing these animal masks the kids loved running around our back garden pretending to be all different kind of animals . The pretend play was great climbing trees and playing . It  is exactly the way a childhood should be .

We have limited runs of our mask and tail sets and are available to purchase for christmas here .

These sets have a crochet animal mask top and clip on tail at the back . Clip is a braces clip .

All our sets are made from 100 % cotton and they can be washed . By a warm hand wash - which is perfect for the kids to run around the yard and let there imaginations run wild. Enjoy !!!
