3 in 1
The rokii design idea emerged whilst creator Sophie Glider was trying to wrangle 4 children under 5 years. She wished that there was a product that could look great, last for years, adapt to changing needs of rapidly-growing little folk, and generally make life as a parent easier.
The rokii has a clever 3 in 1 design and can function as a soothing, rocking cocoon for newborns, an adjustable angle seat for infants, and then with the addition of the rokii animal, a ride-on toy which rocks or zooms around on wheels (even the box converts to a stable for the animal!).
Launched in Australia late last year, the rockii is a new kid on the block. The Design has both the parent and child in mind. It fits seamlessly into a contemporary adult room with its gorgeous sleek, modern styling, whilst still appealing to your child’s imagination and adapting to their growth.
Awarded a Good Design Award at the Australian International Design Awards in 2012 the rockii was built with safety and sustainability in mind. It is made from 100% recyclable materials, and is free of BPAs, phthalates and PVC. Available in red and white.
RRP $599.00 for the complete rockii

It is not often that a brand of bedding and interior products for babies and children really stands out from the crowd, but in Oilo’s case it can’t help but make a statement. Co- founders Annalisa Thomas & Dorte Anderson have taken nursery design to the next level with a range that is not only modern and fresh, but comprehensive and impeccably styled.
The Oilo range steers clear of the regular baby pink and baby blues, instead choosing to use a fresh, modern and sophisticated colour palette with bold yet crisp patterns and finishes. Colours and patterns include Cobblestone Taupe, Modern Berries Spring Green, Taupe and Brown, Sticks Pewter, Raindrops Aqua, Wheels Cobalt Blue, Triple Band Motif and the new Freesia Blush.
Oilo offers complete styling solutions including bedding, lighting, gliders, designer wall art and throw pillows. There is also a new collection of gifts and accessories including layette sets, carseat canopy, play blanket, nappy changing pad cover and topper.
It is easy to see why the Oilo designs have become the choice of style conscious celebrity mummies such as Rachel Zoe, Tiffani Thiessen, Selma Blair and Christina Applegate.

Boulevard kids stock the most gorgeous range of cots , bedding , furniture and everything else you could possibly need for that one of a kind nursery.Founder of boulevard kids, Jacinda Bowring, has always had a passion for beautiful things and a well trained eye for style. Her interest in quality furnishings and interiors stems right back to a very early age, “Even at the age of ten, when asked what I’d like for my birthday, instead of wanting the latest toy I had my eye on a gorgeous vintage bed head!”
Jacinda’s love for interior styling and furnishings has combined with her extensive travels around the world, in particular to North America. Having spent much of her time in Los Angeles, her absolute favourite place for inspiration and shopping is L.A’s infamous boutique shopping precinct ‘The Grove’. Home to some of the world’s best quality children’s brands and furnishings, she found herself buying more and more for her nephews back in New Zealand.
Her popularity as the ‘buyer on behalf’ for so many of her friends and family, along with the lack of stylish quality produced nursery furnishings available back home, led to the launch of boulevard kids. The range of furniture, linens, nursery wares and keepsakes you’ll find on this website is all hand picked and personally scrutinised for absolute quality and the highest safety standards by Jacinda. She and her team regularly travel to ensure the very best and latest styles are available to boulevard kids’ shoppers.
boulevard kids brings heirloom quality pieces and the traditions of family into everyday nursery interiors.
