July 29th, 2014

Okay, so this is pretty amazing! What looks like paint tubes but what really is chocolates and I must say a form of fine art. Designed by Nendo to look like a set of oils, Chocolate-Paint is a limited edition design created for Seibu Department Store in Japan in hopes of giving you the same childhood excitement you had when you opened up a new box of paints. The only problem is that we would always be hoping that we could eat our paints after this.

Mr Bliss – Tolkien’s Little Known Children’s Book

July 22nd, 2014

mrbliss

 

This might come as a surprise to you but Tolkien wrote this book for his own kids and I just found out about this recently. I feel like we were really missing out on something huge!

J.R.R. Tolkien firmly believed that there is “no such thing as writing for children and yet he, like many other famous authors of adult literature, wrote this not-very-well- known children’s book. Other writers to cater to little ones include Mark Twain, Maya Angelou, James Joyce, Aldous Huxley, Virgina Woolf, and Gertrude Stein.

Tolkien wrote Mr. Bliss for his own two children, much like the fairy tales E.E. Cummings wrote for his only daughter, Sylvia Plath’s verses for her kids (which we posted on a while ago), and the The Wishing Tree that Faulkner wrote for the daughter of his future wife. Mr. Bliss, was inspired by his first car, which he purchased in 1932. It was published posthumously exactly fifty years later. Tolkien later used two of the character names from the book, Gaffer Gamgee and Boffin, in The Lord of the Rings.

This Skull Cave by Our Children’s Gorilla is one of the funniest and imaginative play houses I’ve ever seen. And what’s incredible that it’s also super practical, because when the playtime is over, simply roll it up and store it in a drawer.

The tag line for this Swedish toy and design company says it all: “The children’s imagination is our inspiration.”  And every single product is wonderful.
