One of my favorite things about Momtrends is sharing special brands. Not that I have anything against the big boys like Babies R Us and Pottery Barn Kids--quite the opposite. But finding parent entrepreneurs who share my passion for well-designed kids stuff is a thrill.
Zid Zid is one of these stories. The parents behind the brand met right here in NYC, but moved to Marrakech, Morroco to start a business and a family. What they do best is create furnishing and toys that are a pure flight of fancy and joy.
This season I say add a splash of metallic pizazz to the nursery with a poof from Zid Zid. These lightweight (it's faux leather, stuffed with recycled cotton) and durable seats measure 11" in diameter and 12"--perfect for sitting, climbing and playing too. They will really grow with your needs. Each design is handmade and features an embroidered design on top. This super cool Silver Elephant ($89 at Arte Bebe) is sure to be a seat of honor for story time and snuggles. If gold is your thing, check out the Gold Owl.
The next size up is the large poof (see gold picture above) built for two or more (15"h x 27"d, 26 pounds). This is a little pricier at $238.
