We are loving these quirky little characters! Wallaboo soft toys are Dutch in design and are both cute and practical.
Meet Gris, Lulu, Cerise, Zouf and Filou! Designed with baby in mind, these characters are beautiful and soft to the touch thanks to being made from the highest quality 100% lightweight cotton.
The slim line design and long ears, tail and feet mean tiny hands can grab, scrunch and pull with ease. The loosely woven fabric allows the Wallaboo to breath, meaning that it is ideal for babies in warmer climates.
Incredibly portable, the Wallaboo is easy to carry and when you need to pack it into your already overflowing nappy bag, they will fold down to a size smaller than a newborn nappy.

Hours of quality fun
Classic in design, with hours of fun you will LOVE Swingz n Thingz Kids Swings! I purchased my candy and yellow swing in 2010 when my son was 6 months old, and both he and I are as thrilled today as we were the day it arrived.
Handmade in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast since 1993, Swingz n Thingz is a home based family business. Swingz n Thingz only use quality materials and the finished product shows. The fade proof Marine Canvas used in the swings is the same as is used for boat sale covers. The timber is hardwood, the rope is UV stabilised yachting rope and the hardware is stainless steel.
Swingz n Thingz Kids Swings are suitable for children aged from 6 months (or when sitting up), until around 8 years. The child sits deeply in the seat of the swing and is secured with a seatbelt making it safe and secure from a young age. There is even a cushion for added comfort!
The swing is easy to move from one hanging position to another. This has meant we have used it all year round in rain, hail and shine. My son and I have had hours and hours of fun in this swing.
Swingz n Thingz kids swings are available in 7 colours. RRP AUD$135.00 from www.swingz.com.au
