Give, Inspire, Play - Alimrose creates treasures for children...



Alimrose is one of Australia’s most revered baby and children’s brands, featuring a gorgeous collection of soft dolls, squeakers, kid’s decor and accessories.

Signature to the Alimrose collection are the hand-crafted retro dolls which each have their own playful spirit. Each of the dolls are made with the highest level of craftsmanship, detailed embellishments in theatrical prints and characters with their own precious little narrative. 

Ballet enthusiasts will adore the Amelie Doll, which features a frothy, soft tulle removable skirt and dainty chic ballet slippers. Story Time Alice keeps her voluminous gold hair tied back with a black 'Alice' headband ribbon, whilst Red Riding Hood is delightful in her blue gingham dress. 

New to the collection is the Alimrose Emmy Doll which features blush tulle dress with gold ribbon trim, gold ballet shoes and a gold handbag. The Yvette Unicorn Doll provides sophisticated drama and hyper-feminine detailing with its untreated pure cotton outer, soft blush tulle and embroidered face. 

Give. Inspire. Play....create modern and creative spaces where children (and their dreams) can grow with Alimrose.



Need a Christmas idea for your little one? Zoo Modern Animal Friends!


With Christmas just around the corner and many gifts to buy – I had to share these absolutely gorgeous children’s toys with you... and can we talk about how cute my niece Fern is being a baby model for me?!

Lars Owl, Abe Fox, Evan Rabbit & Leo Bear are the furry friends created by ZooModern. Theses ‘animal friends’ are handcrafted in New York, made from sustainable timber that is soft to the touch, painted with child-safe paint from Germany and super soft all natural wool from Ireland.

Zoo Modern Toys

The ZooModern collection has a bespoken quality about it which encourages children to build their own ‘animal friend’ using the interchangeable capes. Their products combine age old craftsmanship with contemporary style, modern design and a sense of humour. ZooModern believe in appreciating the beauty in wood, the principle of simplicity in design and the act of fun in life!


The creator of ZooModern is Glen Hay who grew up in Ohio and attended the Kubert School of Cartooning and then worked for the Jim Henderson Design Company. He then moved forward to work with the Sesame Street crew handling their overseas cast of characters and learning the culture of the European markets. For the last 12 years he has worked in the toy industry creating classic toys mainly made from wood.

And now he has created his own line of toys ZooModern, founded as an umbrella for his diverse interests, ranging from puppetry to sculpting to illustration and contemporary toy culture.

The veritable haven for Scandinavian cool, Bella Buttercup’s Little Place is a minimalist wooden dolls house (RRP $150) for your darlings to play with their toys and teddy bears. Made from New Zealand pine wood, it features a no-fuss design with a sculptural quality and artistic elegance that brilliantly blurs the boundaries between art and design. ‘We’ve created a contemporary interpretation of the traditional doll house that can be left as is, or personalised with paint or decoration,’ says founder Chloe.
