I absolutely love Designtorget so it was one of the very first places I stopped into once we were back in Sweden. In fact, when we had been back just two days, I had already been into the shop twice and here is what we got:
These cosy little night lights are super easy to bring along on a trip, so I thought they might be good for Alec to have in the coming weeks when he’ll often be sleeping in a new, unfamiliar room. I bought the little owl light. Very cute but it has quite a cold, white glow. I would have preferred a warmer yellow glow.
A cute bib from Lottasaker. A little retro. Super easy to keep folded in my little diaper bag. Wipes clean. Very cute.
Mina Första Bok om Vilda Djur (My First Book About Wild Animals). Alec has hardly any books in Swedish so I definitely want to bring home a few old and new favourites. This books has cute rhymes and colourful graphic pictures that Alec likes.
This portable high chair thing is genius. I bought a tie-chair before we left on our trip, but to be honest, we haven’t used it yet. At the hotel where we stayed the first three nights, it wouldn’t have fit on the chairs in the room since they were to big and broad, so I ended up feeding Alec sitting in my lap on the floor (very messy). So we bought this smart portable high chair type thing instead. It’s from In The Pocket Baby who have several smart baby products including a sling that I would really like to have had when Alec was little. The baby chair fits in a teeny little carry bag so I can always keep it handy in my not so big diaper bag. It doesn’t have as much fabric as the tie chair to mess up, it’s easily wipeable, fits snuggly around baby, and really looks like it will fit over pretty much any chair. This little thing will be travelling with us from now on.
Alec actually already has a lot of neat stuff from Designtorget that my sister Sofia has sent and brought Alec when she visited from Stockholm:
This little “wheat bag” warmer shaped like a mammoth can be heated in the microwave and keeps warm for around 30 minutes. Perfect to put in the stroller to warm little baby toes on cold days.
Äntligen Bajs! (Finally poop!) is such a fun and cute book. Alec really likes it!
Bra att ha sånger (Good to have songs) is a great cd full of Swedish kids songs. It even has a little booklet explaining which actions to do along with the songs for parents like me who’ve forgotten the songs of their childhood.
When Alec was a newborn and it was fairly cold out, we had the hardest time finding mittens for him. There just weren’t any in his size. My sister sent him a pair of super-cute, warm and fuzzy on the inside, thumbless mittens from Bonkelimini which we love. Too cute! They have a ton of other adorable, eco-friendly stuff as well.
