Estella: Of Teddy Bear Rugs & Other Cuteness
Just because we’re not hunters doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a good bear rug here at Babble. New York City shop Estella recently turned us on to some excellent gift ideas they carry inside their store, as well as online, and this faux bear rug had us all awwwing. Available in grizzly and polar, you can decorate your kiddo’s room a lá Sarah Palin for fifty-five buckaroos!
If your taste is more “liberal French” you’ll find this La Maison Des Boules made by Vilac a more satisfying option for your babes 12 months and up. Estella admits that they cannot stop playing with this house of balls, and our toddler tester could not either. It may be the bell at the bottom that makes this traditional toy so sweet and Pavlovian. Either way, these gifts will delight all political persuasions. - April Peveteaux
