Now at Little Lulu: Ding-a-Rings!

three reasons babies think Ding-a-Rings are awesome:

they're a soft toy, a rattle, and a teething ring all in the same toy! Genius.three reasons you'll love them:
they're designed in Australia, are made fair-trade, and are suitable for infants (no detachables!). (oh, and theyre extremely cute).

The koala is a great gift if you're after some australiana without looking like you just did a quick dash down swanston st.

And the kangaroo purse. And the love heart cards. And the talking wombat cards. Best you come and check it all out...

There are Australian animal greeting cards (saying all manner of lovely aussie/hipster sentiments)

Plus lots of sweet cards with geometric designs...

Possums can be hipsters too.

Give one of these to someone you like a lot - delighted squealing guaranteed.

Honeybake yumminess from Le Toy Van

We know it's super cold in Melbourne right now, and hardly weather for eating icecream, but it's definitely weather for playing with icecream (and not in the way where it ends up all over the floor).

Little Lulu's just got a delivery of Le Toy Van wooden toys, and these ones are all about eating! There are icecreams, cupcakes, and an icecream sundae wooden stacking toy too.

It's all looking a bit girly with pinks & pastels (and pink sausage dog softies!!) but we also have a fabulous new toy set for the kids who aren't into pastels...

The Le Toy Van construction set. Nice. Perfect for any little future urban planners out there.

Hello Zuny!

Cute new window display at Little Lulu! Green & yellow, to pretend it's not winter anymore. We love indoor picnics on warm blankets with our new melamine plates - in the window are favourite Oh Deer & Silly Goose plates & cups.

We have lots of new Zuny animals too! They're great gifts for kids and will last a lifetime - they're weighted stitched leather-like animals, perfect for using as a bookend or doorstop.

Zuny elephant! Super adorable. There are giraffes, pandas, snow lions and even a hippo or two.

Come visit us at 324 Carlisle St, Balaclava!
