everybody walk the dinosaur

Not sure about you, but we are super stoked about the new dinosaur discovery. We checked out the new exhibit the weekend it opened at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC. This Titanosaur was definitely worth seeing, as we are still talking about it around here…a lot!

In honor of this exhibition opening, today we are sharing a few adorable products we’ve come across while product hunting the Dino theme.

Enjoy!

sing (+ dress!) yourself happy…Brooklyn style

in-spi-ra-tion – noun.

the process of being mentally stimulated to do

or feel something, especially to do 

something creative

 I am always looking for inspiration – whether it be in someone else’s style, a new funky color, food or music I try to notice what makes me tick and note it away for safe keeping. You never know when you’re going to need a little inspiration. Lucky for me, we took Lucy to see THE POP UPS in concert on Monday. After the show my insides were bursting with inspiration! I would definitely consider us a musical family – my husband plays guitar among other instruments and we all just really appreciate what music does to us and how it inspires mostly everyone around us. That being said, after the show we were all feeling very tickled with inspiration!

For those of you that don’t know The Pop Ups, you have to check them out! They are a Brooklyn-based, Grammy nominated(!) musical duo that creates funky children’s songs that (believe me) even parents want to jam out to. They instantly grab their audiences attention by wildly performing their music using cardboard props, hand-painted sets and a colorful cast of original puppets. At our show they even threw out big + colorful beach balls in the audience so kids could ping them to one another. Just really fun stuff. Check them out here – THE POP UPS – to learn more and see when they may be rocking a house near you soon!

Here they are getting down to business…

The Pop Ups in Action

Since I had so much inspiration in my bones, I also hit up some fun Brooklyn-based children’s designers + web shops to see what the hipsters are up to. Check out these adorable finds (there is SO much more to share…stay tuned!)…
