I've seen so many wonderful children's spaces by Japanese designers, like this one. Browsing on ohdeedoh today, I ran across another, by Office Mikko.
Ko Nomoto was designed as a temporary community space for persons of all ages. I know I would love to sit under that beautiful white tree.
The baby swings and bassinets made by german company, Mohr Polster would blend in perfectly with a modern home. Both are made from luxurious wool felt in beautiful colors. While the products are German made, Mohr Polster does ship internationally.

I love the idea of commuting on a bicycle--seeing the city in a new way, getting around quicker, and not having to worry about parking. So I was thrilled when I saw these yakkey bike helmets on design mom. Choose the helmet size that fits you best and then-the fun part- chose between four stylish covers named for the city that inspired them. I'm now looking even more forward to the kiddo being old enough to ride around town on the back of a bike.

How's that for a headline? In order to make this wonderful children's design more accessible, Vitra has released a polypropylene version of the Eames elephant. Available in five colours (red, ice-grey, white, dark lime and bright pink), the plastic version will allow parents to let their kids loose to enjoy a timeless classic.

Samantha Parsons, of I am Samantha, is the creator of floorplay and floorscape floorscape, wonderful floor systems that offer a sexy alternative to foam playmats. A series of squares (Floorplay) or triangles (Floorscape) combines with slits and creases allow these mats to be folded to create headrests, cubes, tunnels, forts and more. They are made of upholstered felt on one side and durable PVC on the other, making them a viable option for inside or out.

Exquisite craftsmanship is evident in this lovely playhouse designed by Japanese architect, Kazuya Morita. Fiber-reinforced concrete was applied to a mold in an extremely thin layer, mirroring the exact proportions of a hen's eggshell. Though it is eggshell thin, this concrete structure is strong enough for an adult to stand on. The resulting space is intimate and peaceful, an ideal escape for big and little people alike.

Jen Mercede is an artist working out of Portland (my brother was lucky enough to have a view of one of her murals from his old apartment). Her colorful canvases would make a wonderful addition to a modern nursery.
