Here’s something I’ve learnt over the last few months: almost as popular as plywood in the kids’ furniture department is, believe it or not, heavy-duty cardboard. It makes sense, if you think about it – it’s eco-friendly, fully recyclable, sturdy and little ones can have free rein to draw all over it without fear of reprisals.
My friend and all round super-stylist-mum Poppy Norton sent me the details for Hulki’s amazing animal-themed playhouses, made from this wonder material, and I just had to feature them. On that note, I am loving all the bits and bobs I am being sent since launching this blog – please keep them coming people!
Suitable for kids aged from 3 to 7, the Hulki playhouses cross the border into toys-ville, but I’ve decided I don’t care anymore. There are too many amazing toys out there not to share them from time to time on the blog too (on that note, I’ve got the most beautiful play kitchen coming up – stay tuned!).
But back to the Hulki playhouses. My favourite is definitely this cool turtle with its cute cut-out windows – the geometric design of the cardboard inside is actually something rather beautiful.
