Nostalgic toys – trend watch

alphabet monkey Arrow bedlinen with Sara Carr toy www.blog.alphabetmonkey.com.au

 

Ive noticed that crochet and knitted nursery toys has been a growing trend over the last few years and have often seen and admired the work of UK based Sara Carr whose quirky little creations have popped up in a many a nursery online.

I put the growth of this trend and its continued popularity down the notion that in todays digital world we all crave something more simple..from an earlier simpler time. This nostalgia makes us hungry for little reminders from the past.

So I couldn’t wait to order one of Saras’ creations for my new baby who will be here with us by the end of the month.  My son and I looked over her site and we chose this adorable little wolf.  And when he arrived I can tell you the quality and detail of this little guy was worth it.  So much so that at my sons insistence we ordered the larger orange fox for him which we had passed over earlier.  He loves it and has been sleeping with it ever since..

So I made up an ‘Into the Woods’ nursery board with a black and white scandi edge..a perfect little nursery to add your little wolf or fox to.  It features our Arrow bunting, quilt and teepee cushion which can all be found in our online shop.

And as I mentioned earlier, crochet is also very big.  I happened to receive this cute bunny all the way from Spain from super cute Marigurumi Shop on Etsy.  I highly recommend you check out her shop if you are looking for a unique baby gift.

Brave Arrow Nursery

brave moodboard ..new range by alphabet monkey.com.au

I just wanted to do an update on the Brave Arrow Indian nursery range.  It has been a very popular design..probably because of the current trend for black and white nurseries as well as it’s simplicity.

Our quilt is back in stock as pictured here..black on the front with white with black arrows on the back.  The Arrow cushion and the sheet are expected to be back in stock this month sometime.

And in other news I am testing samples in grey and white too so I’m hoping to add those to the Arrow range in the next few months.

Below is a sample of a cot sized quilt cover which we will also have arriving soon.  Perfect for that stage between a cot quilt and moving into a big bed.  Enables you to pop an insert inside for the cooler weather.

And like our Single bed quilt cover it is also reversible.  this one features the Little Teepee with Tree print on the reverse side. It is piped around all edges and our fabrics are screen printed by hand onto a beautiful soft quality poplin which washes up beautifully.  And best of all the blacks are strong and true and don’t fade after a couple of washes..a problem I had previously found with other fabrics and printers.

And of course our popular Ashkii single bed quilt cover set will be back in stock this month too so we will let you know when it is.  Featuring the black arrow on one side and the modern Teepee Triangle geometric print on the other.

Campbells Black and White room

Campbells black and white room..bedlinen by Alphabet Monkey

 

Hi, today I thought I’d share some pictures of Campbells big boy room. As you can see we managed to just squeeze in his bunk bed behind the door. I like this as it means when you look in his door you don’t see the bed taking over the whole room..as it is pretty tiny.

As you can imagine there is no shortage of bedlinen combos here…Today have mixed up a lot of black and white prints from both of my Storm and Ashkii ranges to keep an on trend monochrome look.

We kept it pretty simple with black, white and yellow.. as we had already installed the yellow retro style light fitting.  But as time has gone on we have added more colour..mainly from toys and things..its kind of impossible to keep those things out so you may as well work with it.

Teepee are very popular right now and they are a lot of fun for playing but also for resting and reading a book.  Campbell likes to surprise our dog Jasper who sneaks in here to have a little nap.  The little cane chair is actually one I had in my own room as a child.

Below is a super simple string line which we can peg up memories.

Mixing up the black and white raindrops and arrows and teepees.  This is actually the reverse of the Storm quilt.

Below are the super cute little runners given as a gift when he was born..too cute to part with.

This bunk is a lower than normal bunk. He sleeps up on top now but he was able to sleep on the bottom from when he was about two.  Now its a great place to read , play on the iPad etc.

The quilt on the bottom bunk is also the reverse to our Ashkii quilt cover..the one that features the green geometric print on the front.  So we can turn it over and mix things up whenever we feel like it.

Hope you enjoyed this little tour of Campbells room..I think this is the tidiest it had been in a long time.  I must confess I am one to just close the door and ignore the mess..there are better things to do I say.

You can find our cushions, bunting and bedlinen in our online store here.
