.February Cool Shops! BLAKE'S CRAYONS.

Welcome to my newest Cool Shop, Blake's Crayons...
 
Wendy is the clever woman behind Blake's Crayons, and she makes these cool novelty-shaped crayons. 
Drawing is done many times a day at our house and you may remember that Lil is quite fond of a bit of body art.  Thankfully crayons don't leave such a mark but are a little higher on the drawing material ranking than pencils.  Very Mummy-friendly :)
And these ones are super cute to look at too!  Lil is most impressed that her new crayons look like ice cream cones, whereas I can't get Tommy to stop chewing them!
Blake's Crayons really are great.  They are the perfect size for little hands to hold - slightly chunky and not too long, and have a lovely, smooth feel to them.
Not only do Blake's Crayons specialise in really cool novetly crayons, but check out this absolutely adorable Wooden Bird Baby Toy.  A lovely gift for a new baby that is unlike most you can purchase in baby stores.  I love the natural look that it has and it would be great for encouraging grasping and soothing teething pain.
Check out a few of the other novetly crayon shapes in store...

Ballet Slippers:
