We are doing our first drop of superhero goodies into our new webshop later today. Our bestselling postcards, storm clouds, monochrome drops and Superhero garlands will finally be in stock (probably not for long!)
I’ve bribed my smallest boy to help me show our monochrome collection off- luckily he was decked in one of his Beau Loves outfits which was ideal! (We can’t wait for the new collection).
The Superhero garland was one of my very first products, two years ago. Back then it was really tricky to find monochrome kids room accessories so I decided to make my own.. which turned into this business.
Making a kids space that brings joy to children and adults alike can be tricky, but by keeping walls and flooring clean and neutral you can add pops of colour and fun accessories.
Our Ferm living tent is well loved and a few years old now, but the kids still enjoy playing in it. We’ve adorned ours with our monochrome droplet garland, and added a Mini Willa poster and Superhero garland to break up our grey walls.
We’ve added pops of bright yellow which works so well with grey and monochrome with a Mama Designs blanket and a yellow lightning bolt light from Ivy Cabin.
Life with kids, it’s busy, and frantic and there’s nothing worse than tackling toy mountain at the end of a busy day. Quite frankly, tackling a pile of Duplo is an uphill struggle.
This week our prayers were answered with an arrival from Playpouch UK.
These fabulous cotton playbags blend style with practicality. Easy enough for my two year old to undo and open, and refill and close, tidy up time suddenly became much more bearable.
Playpouch is visually friendly enough to have displayed around the house and is roomy enough to store a serious amount of toy clutter. We chose the scandi style monochrome crosses and there are plenty of other options too to suit every home.
Playpouch has been brought to the UK from Australia by a forward thinking family who understand the trauma of keeping control of clutter, and making storage look stylish. The mantra is ‘Maximum Play, minimum mess’. This site pretty perfectly with our life as a busy family.
Playpouch is made from strong cotton canvas and is sturdy enough to hold heavier toys too, though it’s also ideal as an innovative way of storing the dreaded Lego collection. Our kids love the zipped pouch at the front for treasures, or Lego instruction books.

Storing toys has never looked so good, and tidy time has never been so speedy!
The incredible Tobias and the Bear launch their new ‘Batty’ range very soon and we are so excited to give you a sneaky preview. We’ve long been huge fans of their leggings, t-shirts and fabulous bedding which are a brilliant partner to our Velveteen Babies garlands.
Barney is wearing the new Batty leggings in a size 2-3 which are a great fit, and the monochrome style fits so well with this tee from Nor-folk. Tobias and the bear are also releasing a black batty tee which we’ll have to get our hands on!
The range complements our superhero garland so well that we just had to create a room set to take some pictures. The unisex contemporary styling of the range is sure to be a hit with design loving parents, and the cheeky bat design a must have for small people, a win-win situation.
Find the full range of Tobias and the Bear products here and keep a look out for the release of the new Batty design, coming very soon….
You’ll be able to order your own superhero garland from Friday June 3rd when Velveteen Babies reopens.
