Here We Are – the new book from Oliver Jeffers

Oliver Jeffers is one of my favorite illustrators! His new book “Here We Are, Notes for Living on Planet Earth” is a witty, tender introduction to the world for his newborn son.

A flexible Lego tape

This is a flexible adhesive tape that turns virtually any surface into a space for LEGO-building! Nimuno Loops was crowdfunded and is going to be ready for production later this year. The tape comes in different colors and is intended basically for Lego-building around corners or on curved surfaces, but I love it so much I could think of a ton of other uses!

Haha! This dad takes the drawings of his son and recreates them to make them look real. The result is that some are cute, some are very funny and some are quite terrifying! You can see his Instagram account here.

PinPres shelving system

Pin Pres is a playful shelving system designed by OOO My Design and handmade in Spain, that adapts to the shape of the items placed on it. Great idea for kids, it could actually make the act of cleaning up the room a playful experience! The obvious use would be for books, but I can imagine it also for storing wine bottles and maybe creating letters or words. Designed by Vanesa Moreno Serna and Nenad Katic, it comes in two sizes and 4 colors.

The Red Turtle

Yesterday, we watched the excellent animated film “The Red Turtle” together with the kids, shown as part of the Athens International Film Festival.

The film tells the story of a man washed up on a deserted island populated only by turtles and crabs. Everything changes when, in an effort to escape the island, he meets a red turtle. It’s a really great film,  for both adults and kids. It has no dialogues but that was no problem, it was actually a plus for our youngest daughter. The film touches on all the major life stages: life, death, rebirth, family. The direction, the animation and the watercolors are magical. The film is a co-production of the famous Studio Ghibli (of Totoro) and directed by Dutch-British animator Michaël Dudok de Wit.

Make sure not to miss it!
