Pretty Things: Cutest Baby Gift Ever

Pretty Things: Cutest Baby Gift Ever

My cousin Alice had her second baby -- a boy! When searching for a gift for the new baby and his now-big sister, I came across my new favorite kids store in Hong Kong, Petit Bazaar, which has an incredible collection of clothes, books and toys from companies all over of the world. 

The gift for the new baby was easy, but I wanted to get something exciting for his big sister, who is about 18 months old. I came across this adorable tea set from oskar&ellen, a family-run company based in Stockholm. Oskar&ellen creates learning toys made of soft fabric, to encourage young children's imagination through role-play.

Needless to say, the tea set was a hit. She had seen her parents make tea every day (they're English) so she was familiar with the concept. And the soft fabric made the toy totally safe for her to use. The whole set also comes in a soft bag, and then the whole set, bag included, can be thrown in the wash to clean. 

The company makes other food-related sets too, like this pizza set and sushi box below. Aren't they adorable?!

There are tons of sets to choose from -- including ones with animals, tools, medical supplies -- a bird house. Take a look at oskar&ellen's products at their website. Happy shopping!
