This year for Christmas I’m focussing on buying the kids things that are beautiful and useful, that they engage in, that have been designed – not just made. And you know what? It’s a pretty easy thing to do when you know where to look.
When Tiger Tribe approached me last year to giveaway some of my faves I was so excited. Mostly because I LOVE small businesses and they are exactly that; a small family business who wholesales awesome stuff (that suits our play philosophy perfectly) to other small businesses.
Fast forward a year on and my kids have had the pleasure of road testing a lot of their gear, and it seriously never fails to be awesome. But the hands down fave has been the Quut beach toys.
Every time we go to the beach, a parent pulls me aside and asks where I got their toys from, and the comments are always the same, wow! That’s so clever! The kids are so engaged, and so on. And they are, it’s just good design.
I may be a self confessed toy snob but I am not super fussy when it comes to looking after our stuff and these ones just keep on going, I mean, I’m sure I’m not supposed to encourage you leave these in a basket in the sun on the front deck year round but that’s what I do and they are still perfect.

Jodi – “My most vivid Christmas memory is from when I was about six or seven, playing at my grandmas farm with the cousins & Father Christmas arriving in the back of a Ute to give everyone their presents, it was such a magical day 🎄✨”
Bec – “one very special Christmas memory is of the first Christmas with my husband (as husband and wife) and we went traveling on our own and spent Christmas in Val Disere in the French alps! Amazing! The first time I’d seen snow and so very different from our large family beach Christmas’!! There were children skiing down the mountains with lit up balloons and mulled wine being served to the village on long wooden tressal tables. It was such a special and different Christmas for us, and completely different to now, three kids later it’s all about them! ”
Josie – “Mine is a little different – my most vivid Christmas memory is a bit more recent and it’s when my autistic son finally decided that sand was not the devil!!! We finally get to ENJOY the beach which we live so flipping close to without meltdowns and screaming. Christmas morning at the beach 😍”
