Monte Design Group is certainly a leader in the design of contemporary nursery furniture and I love the minimalist look and multifunctional use of the ninna – nanna bassinet. The inspiration behind this stylish and streamlined version is that bassinets do not have to look like poufy wedding dresses from the 1980′s. Along with its good looks, this bassinet is also extremely versatile. The basket is easily removable from its solid birch rocker frame and makes a perfect portable bed for trips away from home. The familiar sense of surrounding and comfort can help your little one cope better with new environments and stimuli. The bassinet includes not only a machine-washable suede microfiber cover to soften its protective sides, but also a waterproof mattress and 2 fitted 100% cotton sheets. The all-inclusive nature of this package is very convenient. When your little one outgrows the bassinet, you can easily reuse it for storage of stuffed animals, toys or other necessities.
The Monte Design Group is committed to creating the safest possible products for our environment as well. They use foam that is not developed from petroleum based products and is low VOC to assist in keeping indoor air quality safe and clean. The wood used in product construction is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified and adhesives are water-based and biodegradable. The Toronto based, Monte Design Group, is forward thinking with its stylish, versatile designs and production.

I admit I am a little behind the holiday season with this great product I just stumbled upon, but I am so enchanted with this concept for children’s play and storage structures I could not help myself. Tsuchinoco‘s products certainly go beyond the holiday season and are so lovely, they are sure to spark the imagination and creativity in every child. This line of children’s products has been created by Masahiro Minami Design in Japan. Although the concept of reinforced corrugated fibreboard is not new in and of itself, this is a very functional design. They have taken the concept to the extent of developing outdoor playground equipment. The cardboard used for the products is not your normal corragated cardboard and it does not contain petroleum products or result in deforestation. It can also be easily recycled at the end of its life unlike many other plastic toys. Currently items can be purchased via the internet from here, but hopefully these and other similar environmentally sensitive items will become increasingly available at a store near you. We determine demand in the market by where we choose to put our dollars and this kind of inspirational design stands to benefit our children and future generations in many different ways.

Universal fact: kids love leaping into piles of leaves. Something about the sight of a pile of brown, red, and yellow leaves sends kids into a frenzy of energy that begins with a run, builds to a flying leap, and ends with a cushioned collapse, leaves exploding everywhere. Even reading the previous sentence may bring a child into a sudden urge to leap onto something reminiscent of a pile of leaves. Unfortunately for parents, most of today’s rigid furniture doesn’t allow kids to burn off energy with such entertaining leaps.
But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. With bean bag chairs for kids’ rooms, no child has to be left without a landing pad for their attempts to beat gravity. Plus, there are countless types of bean bag chairs to choose from, so you always have one that works best for your specific needs.
