Babybot + Blik: Babybot in Dinoland!

Babybot + Blik have teamed up again to create a new series of Babybot decals!  It's a series of 3 decals featuring the adventures of Babybot in Dinoland.  Dinosaurs are all the rage and it's nearly impossible to find dino decals. It's even more rare to find a modern take on dinosaurs. Check out the collection below and find your fave. 

Babybot in Dinoland 1: "Strange New World."  Babybot's spaceship lands on a strange planet full of odd dino creatures, bizarre vegetation and live volcanos!

Babybot in Dinoland 2: "Crash of the Cyclops Twins." Tod + Javier (the Cyclops Twins) crash their spaceship in the middle of Dinoland with even more dino creatures.  Dino decals 1 and 2 can be bought together to create one big Babybot in Dinoland scene for your wall. Each decal will be around $45.

"Strange New World" features hatching eggs, odd tentacle plants and exploding volcanos.

"Crash of the Cyclops Twins" features Tod + Javier, a cast of ultra cool dinobots and living waterfall mountains.



Babybot in Dinoland 3: "Babybot VS Godzilla"  Godzilla and his pterodactyl's battle it out with Babybot in this epic battle that takes place in Dino City. We have 2 versions in progress. 

Version 1 features Babybot with Raygun Bird as his weapon. Raygun bird only shoots peas which might just be crazy enough to work since Godzilla hates peas, he avoids them at all costs. He's more of a carrot guy.

Version 2 features Babybot and his spacebots going up against fire breathing Godzilla and his pterodactyl army. Which version do you prefer? Opinions welcome!

Babybot in Dinoland series will be available at Babybot and Blik late October or early November! Wanna win one? Follow on

Hot for Christmas!

What's hot this Christmas? You might be surprised! Some of our hot sellers are no brainers, some you'll understand when we explain it, and others are just weird. Check out our list and if you're last minute shopping - this is where it's at!

Music toys! Every parent dreads them, yet somehow they are the hottest sellers every Christmas! Plan Toys xylophone is one of the best music toys combining beauty, eco-friendliness AND a reasonable price tag!

The Sevi Instrument Set combines all the noise makers into one perfect little gift! This is eco-friendly, Italian design at it's finest! This little bad boy has been on wait list for Canada for over a year but it's back and selling fast!

Trunki ride-on suitcases are hot for Christmas, birthdays and summer travel. It's a ride-on toy, a suitcase AND a pull along toy! (Available in red, orange, blue, pink, purple and green!)

We are not big fans of taking a clean design and cluttering it up with unnecessary extras. In the case of Trunki, Melissa & Doug added an optional accessory that makes Trunki more customizable in a way that kid's love! Trunki face stickers or travel stickers are the perfect way to pimp out your Trunki.

Hug + Hide developmental toys by Skip Hop! It all started with an Owl that was a hot seller last Christmas so Skip Hop added 4 more animals to the hug + hide zoo along some smaller stroller toy versions too!

DwellStudio has been a leader in modern bedding and decor for years so they decided to try their hand at modern toys. They have created a beautifully designed collection of wooden toys, blocks, push toys, stamp sets, puzzles, the works! Each one is a hot seller and almost sold out for the year.

Wean Green's glass baby cubes and their new glass storage containers are popular anytime of the year but for Christmas? Really?

Yup, really. And here's why. This Christmas, Wean Green released a gift guide complete with creative gift ideas using their glass containers. Fill them with coffee beans, tea, truffles, spices, olives, bath salts, even a diamond ring! It's a great way to present a gift with no waste, in a container they will use again and again!

Tegu's magnetic blocks let your child create structures and scenes they can't possibly do with regular blocks. These blocks defy gravity, the colours are modern and they are made from sustainable woods using sustainable practices. We've got small sets, medium sets and large sets in several colours!

Tegu has smaller pocket pouches and travel totes for the larger block sets.

Vers ipod stereos are the perfect ipod stereo for the modern nursery! Ideal for soothing lullabies for baby and beautifully styled to fit any decor. For Christmas, it's not just not just baby but Daddy who's getting this amazing gadget under the tree!!

Mod Mom's gorgeous hand-crafted toy boxes are hot this Christmas, especially the striking 'Bertie' box. We love these toy boxes because they can fit in with the decor of any room in your house - not just the play room!

Potties for Christmas? Huh? We don't understand it either but Hoppop's Donut Potty is all the rage right now. Nothing says love like a potty under the tree...right?

Not surprising, gift cards are a great 'go to' gift! Our gift cards are electronic and they get e-mailed the day you buy them (no shipping, no waiting!) This is December 24th shopping at it's finest!

There's still a few days to shop and we can ship it fast (and free in Canada!) Get one of our best sellers for the baby, toddler or child on your list!

Blik + Babybot: Part 3!

Our collaboration with Blik to create Babybot decals is almost complete! We've chosen 4 decal concepts and after some trial and error, we've nailed down scale and colour palette for each one. If all goes well (meaning if Babybot doesn't have a ton of high maintenance changes & picky comments for Blik) decals will be available in October!


Blik sent us these drawings (with bicycles, furniture items or human figures) so we could get a sense of the scale for each decal. The challenge was to get them big enough on the wall while trying to keep each decal to only 1 or 2 sheets of stickers per concept. More sheets = more expensive. More expensive = bad.

Dangly Carrot will be available in 3 colour options, white bunnies, tan bunnies and pink bunnies. (Not all colours in one decal). Check it: this decal fits on one page! One page = less expensive!

This is one example of what you can do with your brand new, never been seen before 'Dangly Carrot' decal in white.

This is one example of what you can do with your very own 'Dangly Carrot' decal in pink.


This decal went through a few scale changes (this thing could take up 3-4 sticker sheets if we let it!) but we finally got it to a great size using only 1 1/2 sheets. It can be made into anything you want - you can use all the parts or just a few - you're the boss.

This decal is available in only one very colourful option. The 1/2 sheet of trees is included so you can have more flexibility to create scenes. The 'trees' sheet is shared with the 'Babybot Land' decal in order to keep costs reasonable!

The best thing about this decal is it lets YOU be the creator. You can create anything with this decal including this totem pole which was the brain child of Scott (Blik) and Felix (Babybot).

This re-stik decal is hours of fun for you or your child. No seriously. I just created this fish decal with only about half the stickers! You can change it up any time you want to create something new.


Like 'Build-A-Bot' this decal went through a few scale changes. We ended up at a great size while still keeping all the design components and flexibility in tact!

This multi-colour decal is only available in one colour option. With the 1/2 sheet of trees shared with the 'Build-A-Bot' decal, the price will stay reasonable! Use this decal in one room or multiple rooms. There are so many scenes you can create with just a few characters, you can fill up several walls with just one decal!


Doodle is one of the fan faves and probably one of the coolest concepts in the collection. This decal is a great scale and it works in a kid's room, a nursery or a living space!

Doodle will be available in 3 colour options (black, tan, aruba) and it comes with an optional Beaverbot but you don't have to use him if you don't want to. (He'll be offended at first, but he'll soon get over it.)

Here's what the aruba 'Doodle' option looks like on a wall. It can work anywhere - even if you want a formal, modern space to look more inviting.

Here's a wall test with the Dangly Carrot decal in tan. Scale is nice - you could do a lot with it and the bunnies can be moved anywhere to create the scene of your dreams. There are enough bunnies in one decal to use some on another wall or in another room.

Here's a wall test with part of Build-a-Bot. Again, thumbs up on the scale of the pieces - not too big, not too small. With this decal, you can use a part of the decal to spice up a small space or play area. It's re-stik too so create a fish scene one day and change it up to make a mutant monster scene the next day.
