little lulu meets little nutty

kids bike helmets have certainly come along way since i buckled on a stackhat in the 80's.

Nutcase helmets produce the supercute range Little Nutty. Suitable for mini peeps up to 5 years. We particularly like the sentiment on the box - I Love My Brain. Need any other reason to chuck one of these on your little one?

Love, Dots, Star Bright and Paintfight all available, $99.

At Little Lulu, 324 Carlisle St Balaclava. Open 7 days.

string and spool set, $39.95

a lulu man staple, the JFold wallet. These 100%
leather wallets from the New York based Jfold are designed to sit completely flat, so as to sit comfortably (and discreetly) in the back pocket.

these lovely wooden pairs are brand new from Polli and feature Japanese inpired patterns in 3 colourways. Made from sustainable plantation hoop pine, they are already selling fast. $59.95

dad more of a handyman? but still likes a bit of knowledge acquisition on the side?

these beautiful fold out rulers are a huge hit with lads of all ages.
Pop in and check out the Inventions Ruler (a history of inventions and inventors), the History ruler (yep, they pretty much fit the history of the world on to 1000mm of wood), and the Art history ruler - an index of important artworks starting from Ancient Egypt all the way through to Lichtenstein in the 60's.

Useful, educational, and stylish!
