Belly Dance Baby offered to give me some dosh if I would take a look at their store and then talk to you all about it. Frankly, it's a ridiculous offer. Cause I'm just gonna send the money right back to them. Seriously. How am I supposed to resist this? And for Lord's sake - Mid Century Modern baby furniture? You're killing me man. They do have some nice sale items as well, like this super cute Hug Me Sweater with mittens for pockets. And their baby shoes are incredibly reasonable given the cute factor.
I'm also a big fan of putting kid's art and toys in the main part of the home. (I have a large canvas of a box of crayons in my family room.) I think it's fun and sort of pop modern. Maybe I'm odd but I would actually buy this Jeeto canvas to hang in the dining room. Plus, I knew I liked the folks at Belly Dance Baby when they offered the rocker drum set in pink also.
Ultimately, the store won me over because it has such unique items. I want to put this Zidzid days and days wall panel in my hallway and put a chore (or activity) in each pocket. And even though it would mean the grocery money would take a hit I would totally serve up Mac and Cheese in order to buy these pillow/toys. Or this Blabla mobile! It's like stuff I would knit if I actually had the talent. I just don't find this kind of cool in the Midwest very often. Or if I do I can't go near it cause teeny tiny sticky hands will take it and the display holding it to the ground. So the fact that I can check this stuff out online while the little ones nap is a serious bonus.
So far it's been pretty darn easy to stick to my resolution of only giving honest reviews. The hard part is finding out about all this great stuff I salivate over. Thank God the postman comes to the door before husband comes home from work. That leaves me a good hour and half to smuggle the bags and packaging over to their neighbors house.
