children, with their wonderful curiousity, brilliant imaginations, fabulous creativity and eagerness to learn, explore, make.
i love that!

so this week, as we're celebrating handmaking for kids here on the rikrak studio blog, i hope you'll be as inspired as i am by some of the amazing folks who are capturing our little one's vivid imaginations with their beautiful, ingenius, inspiring hand-crafted creations.

the first certainly captivates me!
i just adore Moozlehome's handmade collection of whimsical, wistful creations!
when i first saw their gorgeous children's play teepee's win silver in the handmade olympics, i was smitten!

here was a design studio that was after my own child-centred heart!

beauty + imagination + open-ended creative play + handmade is what Moozlehome is all about. this fabulous 2 person design team handcrafts those famous play teepees, gorgeous stuffies, crocheted masterpieces and more all invite us to a colourful, modern handmade world that gosh... any child i know would just thrive in!
