We just received our VW Camper Van Play Tent which the girls had tried out a couple of months ago at an expo and I can’t get them out of it! They want to sleep in there too so it seems I will have to get some sleeping bags as well. And don’t worry…they make a large VW Camper Van Tent for adults in case you are yearning to use the kids’ one when you go camping. Made by The Monster Factory, all of these are modeled on the 1965 VW Camper Van. Must have been a good year.
Look at my picks from Redbubble, an online shop that connects more than 400,000 artists from all over the globe with people in more than 150 countries across a variety of canvases – from apparel and accessories to wall art and more. What’s great is that you like a piece of art, in can be printed on whatever you like. All of these items I’ve chosen can be printed on several things to create a matching set for instance!
So, if you are looking for an original tote, t-shirt, duvet cover, cushion or a myriad of other pieces printed with fab art, take a look at the Redbubble website. I’m sure that the gift you have never even imagined is on there!
I want to share this wonderful online shop with you Babes with Babies! First of all, I just love that the name honors the expecting Mom as someone beautiful and that is what this brand is all about. I have compiled just a few of the wonderful luxurious items as they would make amazing Holiday gifts. And I personally own a couple of these items myself and just adore them!
I have discovered this very sweet, family business that makes the very coolest bags for kids or moms called Artbird! I love their novel lunch bags which are the size of a sandwich baggie… except you can use these over and over and be kind to Mother Nature (see below). I would be great to have a different one of these for each day of the week. So handy for those little snacklettes when you are out.

Okay, now for some serious listening and something you don’t want to miss out if you are lucky enough to live in ol’ New York City!
Yes, Lincoln Center has a big treat in store for you and the your little film buff kiddos. You can listen to the New York Philharmonic perform the scores from many of Pixar’s movies, including the Toy Story trilogy, Finding Nemo, Wall·E, A Bug’s Life, Ratatouille, UP, Finding Nemo, Brave, and Monsters, Inc. in Pixar in Concert. Clips from each film will be shown simultaneously, so you and your family can view the action while listening to the familiar tunes being played all around you.
