Our latest issue takes its inspiration from all over the world. This July, our team travelled to Tokyo for the Baby & Kids Expo. On our travels we caught up with Japanese artist, Ami Suma, who told us all about her brilliant and inventive wall murals and what inspires her in “Ami-mated”.
From the hip streets of Harajuku we head to the laidback elegance of Copenhagen. Photographer Monika Elena and stylist Michala Cowan joined forces to bring us “Happy Homespun”a fashion story celebrating this season’s love of all things crafty.
In “Wiesbaden Wonderland”, you’re invited to visit a magnificent play sculpture in Germany. Berlin architecture firm, ANNABAU has created an experiment in play for children and adults alike. It’s a clever take on your stock standard playground – after reading our story you’ll wish it was in your neighbourhood.
There’s plenty more fun to be had in this spring issue, including all our regular columns featuring what’s hot in the world of kids’ products.
