Hazel Village

hazel village
Hazel Village was born in 2010 by Jane Van Cleef.

One weekend, I decided to make a toy that I would have liked as a child – a cute and soft doll with a big wardrobe. I cut up some good fabric scraps in the front room of my apartment in Brooklyn, then sewed them into a tiny version of Annicke Mouse. I thought she was so cute, so I made some friends for her and started to imagine the animals’ forest world. I listed the dolls on Etsy, each with its own little outfit and back story. And I took them to local craft markets around Brooklyn.’

Today the animals are produced responsibly in India. Hand made from organic cotton they come in a cute outfit. You can then add more clothes {I love this sweet little box full of heirloom pieces}for some great role play hours and even buy matching outfits for your child.

Quality toys that can stay with your children as they grow up – first as soft, snuggly friends, then as companions for storytelling and dress-up play, and eventually as treasured keepsakes.

Pokemon Birthday Party

Pokemon birthday party

Antoine turned 7 at the end of March and he wanted a Pokemon Birthday Party.

 

 

I ordered a few Pokemon themed Party supplies and decided to make a Pokeball cake. Lucky me – it was more or less as easy as I hoped it would be.

Through google I found a simple Birthday Cake recipe. With frosting. My base and I already bookmarked it for future birthday cakes. It is a great basis. So I made this cake and the frosting. Bought some red food colouring, black fondant and marshmallows.

Let’s talk costumes. I am sure that my kids are not the only ones that love to dress up. Pretending to be a princess or a magician….

Preparing shows, dancing, enjoying very fancy tea parties and and and…

So I did a little bit of research to select the best costumes for kids for you today.

A great mix of fairies, capes, romantic and brave.

Enjoy!

Gifts for Tweens {ideas 2016}

Gifts for Teens

Gifts for Tweens

– Romy is 9 1/2 now and I can see that her interests and taste are changing. This time before they become teenagers. This time where they are not children anymore… too old for toys and too young for boys… or at least not interested at all in our case.
And I love this. I love the talks we have now. Her curiosity and personality that takes more and more shape.

When your kids were small / below eight you were usually confronted with many shops, things, toys, accessories and more. Probably more than one can need and digest. And then the overwhelming kids world starts to fade. There is less and there is a little gap for these cute 9-12 years old. But there are great things!

Here is my list of great gift ideas that I would buy without a doubt for my own tween.
