Top 5 Stylish Kids Coat Hooks

Winter’s approaching and that means changes in the house…it’s not just ALL about being cold but also about being prepared for the winter months ahead. Of course the seasonal wardrobe change over must occur…flip flops out and warm jumpers in, heating goes on and the slippers come out etc. But that also means that ANY DAY NOW my kids’ winter coats will appear in a heap at the bottom of the stairs or if I am lucky slung over the bannisters. So here’s the plan…I’m taking a more mature approach to this yearly battle of ‘hang up your coat’ by investing in a stylish coat hook or 20!

Here are my top 5:

Stylish ‘House Pig’ by Cybex and Marcel Wanders for Kids

Cybex has previously focussed primarily on beautifully designed car seats and prams often found being pushed around by a long list of celebs, and although very fashion friendly with their brilliant designer collaborations, they are strictly for use outside the home. So how happy was I, when Cybex founder Martin Pos partnered up with interior designer Marcel Wanders and to bring us a new line of interior delights that I would proudly display in my very own castle.  Including their first release – ‘Hausschwein’ or, as us Brits would call it a ‘House Pig’.

Super Cute Night-Lights for Babies and Kids

So my girls are 9. And afraid of the dark. “Mumeeee can you close my cupboard doors. All of them. Is it babyish that I think there are monsters inside?” asks Minnie. Err, no. I have NEVER to this day, gone to sleep with a cupboard door or drawer even a tiny bit open.

So as well as closing the doors firmly, my girls need a bit of night-light action in their rooms, to reassure them I guess. This I cannot relate to, I cannot cope with even a tiny chink of light. My friends and family often refer to me as the only person they know who wears an eye mask and ear plugs outside of a plane. But if my girls ventolin need something to comfort them at night, they get it. Happy kids, are sleeping kids which equal sleeping parents.

But but BUT, if you are going to do them a night-light, it needs to be stylish. So how delighted was I, to spot these guys..
