fresh hamb

Hamb, one of our most favourite homegrown labels, has delivered the first batch of short sleeve tees. a little bit of cool/cute for the little boys and girls in your life...

sock puppets...

for your lil' tiger...

And, depending on your take on the illustration, its a koala in either an icecream cone or a very nice argyle sweater. (either way its a winner really).

Love little lulu X

raindrops keep fallin' on our heads....

we thought we might as well get in the spirit of winter (now that spring's coming on!) and bring some rainbow raindrop cheer to the street. Courtesy of the ever-cute Pocket Carnival and Little lulu - we hope it brightens your mornings! (and evenings too).

it's not too late to get your gumboots! Bergstein gumboots are handcrafted in Sweden and look pretty dandy. $49.95, sizes eur 23 - 31.

got your hands free?

Little lulu loves hand puppets! These little gems by Kalimba are lovely and soft, made of a stretchy cotton so they can fit all hands! They're lightweight and portable (and don't have detachable parts!) which makes them a great baby toy to tuck down the side of a pram or into a nappy bag as an on-the-go toy. Keep one (or three?) at the ready for some serious fun times.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Sweet enough for a kids room, but also perfect for any room of the house. They're so nice and soft - we have all been busted wandering around the shop hugging one!

snakes can be cute too! (and great to use as door snakes to stop drafts!)

These little ladies are soft & delightful, and we pretty much just want Suzie's hair style. Check it! Adorable!

It's pretty hard to describe the satisfying way these arms and legs (and tails!) of these mice jiggle around when you pick them up, but it makes all of us at Little Lulu smile every time someone does. You'll just have to come in and see for yourself!

We love a bit of bold black & white for kids rooms, and if that's you too, you may want to take zebra home. Look at that tongue. Winner!

Pop in to Little Lulu at 324 Carlisle St and have a play!
