Stand Out From The Crowd

Must be the week for the inner Rock Star in me bursting to come out... On Sat Allies Attic is off to Baby Loves Disco to sponsor the Magical Massage Chamber.. really looking forward to the amazing vibe it promises to be. Madi & Me have also kindly donated a $50 Voucher to give away to the Best Dancer on the day.. we might just find the next "So You Think You Can Dance" star yet... Sat's excursion must be guiding me to all things funky just like the Cheeky Chickies clothing range (also pictured here).. suits the occasion yes?

We love all things bright and Cheeky Chickies, an ultra modern Australian clothing line is 100% certified by organic cotton not to mention the fact that bright colors is always a good way to spot your little Miss or Mr in a crowd! Their stylish 09/10 for children aged 0-4 reads like a choose your own adventure novel as their designs and color palette suit the bright and individual personalities of every little chickie.

Cheeky Chickies don't do subtle, they do loud and stand out from the crowd. Perfect for summer!

Does Your Baby Love To Boogie?

Imagine a place where parents could go with kids into a hip dance space? Something like you've never experienced, Baby Loves Disco is slowly but surely transforming the hippest night clubs into child-proof discos as toddlers, pre-schoolers and parents looking for a break from the routine playground circuit let loose for some post-naptime, pre-dinner fun. Make no mistake, this is not the Mickey Mouse club, and The Wiggles are banned. Baby Loves Disco is an afternoon dance party featuring real music, spun and mixed by real DJs, blending classic disco tunes from the 70s, & 80s - guaranteed to get those little booties moving and grooving.

The fun spills out from all corners of the club: bubble machines, baskets of scarves and egg-shakers, a chill-out room (with tents, books and puzzles), nappy changing stations, a full spread of healthy snacks. Oh and dancing. Lots of dancing. But at its core, Baby Loves Disco is a community event that brings kids together with kids and parents together with parents.

Allies Attic loves Baby Loves Disco so much that we are sponsoring a Magical Massage Chamber at this weekend Baby Loves Disco Halloween event.

Sweet Little Swaddle

As a new mum I found Izac was a little worm and could never seem to stay still long enough. I invested in the Sounds of Silence CD which talked about wrapping and swaddling children to promote a snuggly feeling of warmth and security. It also prevents 'jerky baby movements' which can startle baby awake and stops little one's arms from wriggling free and getting cold or from scratching themself!

No wonder I've really gone out of my way to source fantastic Baby Swaddles for my markets that do just this and I love Australian designer Lila & May who handmake each Swaddle individually.
The Lila & May Snuggle Pods are lined with bamboo which is perfect for sensitive baby skin! It's incredibly soft, breathable - so warm in winter and cool in summer, naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic. It's also practical, being naturally stain and odour resistant and machine washable.

All this and they're stylish too!

Funky Kix For Kids

Who agrees that finding quality funky wear for little boys is just sooooooooooo hard????.. I always pictured myself with a little girl.. one i could dress in beautiful little clothes with hair clips to go... might have something to do with the fact why I established Allies Attic. Yes, there you have it my secret motive.. finding that there was certainly a lack of funky little boys wear.. and maybe if the baby stork comes to visit again and brings me a little girl I'll know some pretty special designers in funky little girls wear too.. but ohhh how I love little girls clips... (just like the ones pictured here by Please Eloise).
I do also really like Kix Clothing summer range of pants and coordinates for boys.. they also do some great reversible girls dresses. In the meantime I have I'm looking forward to seeing Kix at the first Alllies Attic in Nov. Might even buy some of these pants pictured here for Izac..
