Creating a nautical boat themed room is made easy with wall stickers.

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

Well we may have the perfect solution! Using removable wall stickers to decorate any childs room is easy. There are a couple of types available. Peel and stick designs are very simple to apply, peel them off the backing and apply to the wall. Pre-pasted wall stickers are self adhesive once they are dipped in water to activate the adhesive. While both types are removable and won’t damage your walls, the peel and stick designs are also re-usable.

We have found that the nautical theme is very popular, but room decor is perhaps not widely available? Lots of little boys love going fishing with their grand dad, sailing or feel the call of the sea and love the thrill of adventure associated with the ocean.

The cool, calming blue tones of this theme make it ideal for hot climate conditions such as those in Australia and these tones have been shown to relax and revitalise the mind.

If you’re wondering what colours to paint your walls to really set off the nautical theme, blue is ideal or an off white colour to break up the blue also works well.

Here is a showcase of the nautical themed wall decor we have available. To view more details about a particular product simply click on the photo.

This wall sticker set and matching wall border are ideal for boys who love fishing and includes boats, fish, anchors and the odd crab!

The Wallies sail boat decals are breathtaking! A nice addition to storage boxes, furniture etc they add a nice touch to this theme and are suitable for children and teenagers.

Jungle Animal Adventure Wall Sticker Set

Customer Reviews:

“We wanted big stickers to liven up the room and although these are smaller than we were looking for, they actually worked out really well in our nursery. There are 4 sheets of stickers, both big animals and smaller things like suns and littler animals. They were super easy to stick on and reposition and they are so darn cute! We don’t know the sex yet so our nursery is neutrally jungle themed (yellows and oranges and greens) and these went perfectly in it.”

“When deciding how to decorate our son’s room, we were kind of stuck because we didn’t want to put lots of effort into putting something up that we liked but then in a couple of years when he has an opinion, he hates and we’d have to paint over. We also didn’t want anything that would be difficult to remove or damage the walls when we decide to redecorate. This was the perfect solution. The stickers are super cute and peel and stick and re-stick so nicely. Now if he likes them, he can play with them or if he doesn’t, it’s no big deal to pull them off and do something different.”

Cuddle Buddies Wall Sticker set

“We purchased this set and the Jungle animal adventure set from Tots ‘N’ Tales and they go soo well together! We love the large size of the wall stickers, the bright colours and the cute characters. Our daughter now walking about loves to talk to the animals and reposition them on her wall! It is so lovely to watch and makes this purchase even more special for us!”

Walls of the Wild Orangutan and Tucan Wall mural Sticker

Customer Review:

“I created a jungle safari themed nursery for my little boy and couldn’t believe how easy this mural was to apply. All we had to do was peel it off the backing and stick it on the wall- I didn’t like where we put it so we peeled it off and repositioned it, no damage to the paint at all. Too easy and the nursery was brought to life in a matter of minutes. We also purchased the baby jungle animal appliques and the brown baby jungle border. Thank you Totsntales from the Schneider family on the Gold Coast.”

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

The Skip Hop duo deluxe range features a multitude of pockets and compartments so you’ll always have space for your belongings, your baby’s and ofcourse your 2 year olds odds and ends. The colour range is extensive and there is something to suit everyone including “petal pink” for the ladies, “blue camo” for dads and the more neutral designs such as black, red and ocean stripe.

“The design’s not too feminine and my husband doesn’t mind carrying this on his own. The strap is also quite comfortable and hangs nicely on the stroller handle.” Skip Hop duo deluxe customer review

Our customers are enjoying the Skip Hop range and keep telling us how versatile and comfortable the duo deluxe design is. We can see that it isn’t an overly bulky or large bag and therefore suits both smaller and larger framed women ideally. In saying that however, you’re always find new compartments and there’s plenty of space for all your belongings. Some of our customers have puchased the duo deluxe as a travelling bag, they didn’t have a baby, instead they wanted a bag that would keep their drinks cool, fit their phone and other belongings in an organised and fashionable way. The duo deluxe may be your answer!

Customer reviews of the Skip Hop duo deluxe baby nappy bag:

“This may be the best bag I’ve ever owned. I recently traveled by plane and found it was large enough to accommodate my 13″ laptop, seven extra diapers + wipes (never know how long you’re going to be stuck in the airport), two books (one for me, one for my husband), and various other items, all without making the bag bulky (though yes, it was heavy, as you can imagine). Yet, the bag is somehow compact enough that I can use it around town *without* all of those items, and it doesn’t look like I’m carrying a giant empty bag around.”

“Perhaps my favorite feature are the two front pockets, miraculously large enough to easily slip a sippy cup in and out of (but, when empty, look just as they do in the picture), thus keeping it upright and spill-free. I also love the two zippered pockets at the top of the bag (I keep my wallet in one of them). I don’t use my stroller much anymore (my son is 2 1/2), but I do use the stroller clips on the cart handle at the grocery store. I *love* not having to carry my bag around and having easy access to sippy cups, snacks, etc. that my son may want.”

“The Skip Hop Duo Deluxe Uptown is everything I have been looking for in a nappy bag. It is stylish AND convenient. I have an infant and a toddler, and there’s room for both their stuff. The water bottle net on the side is perfect for mommy’s drink but it can also adjust to fit a sippy cup, the mobile phone pocket is big enough for my smartphone, the changing pad is long enough for my toddler – I could go on and on. All the things that frustrated me in other bags are addressed with this one, and the fact that it snaps right onto the stroller made it perfect because my infant seat makes accessing the basket under the stroller impossible. So settle down for a long-term relationship with this nappy bag; this is THE BAG to own especially if you have two!!”
