Welcome Reese

Most of you know that we decided that our wonderful Penelope print was a great unisex print and not just for girls. That being said, we couldn't call it Penelope anymore. So now we are reintroducing Penelope as Reese and have added the Reese Sky blanket- it is BEAUTIFUL, if we do say so ourselves!!

Brilliant Design

Every once in a while I come across a product that is AMAZING, a why didn't I think of that kind of item. Well today I came across one. And am now thinking that I should just start adding these to the blog whenever I see them.

Tuned Pale Ale is a product that explores the musical affordances in everyday objects and promotes social spontaneity. While drinking beer, people become musically encouraged and often start making music with objects around them. This product aims to promote more of this type of social interaction. This product aims to inform users about the musical qualities of existing bottles and to make the bottle a better instrument.

Even if you don't like beer, I think this is a great concept because you could reuse it over and over with water or whatever you fancy...
Unfortunately it is not available yet, but I am looking forward to getting my hands on these when they are.
