This will be Archie’s first Christmas, yay! I’m pretty sure he will have no idea what is going on, but hey, I’m still really freaking excited about playing Santa. I have to restrain myself from buying him ridiculous amounts of things, but here are a few things that Santa might bring Archie.
The Make Me Iconic wooden tram. I have wanted this for SO LONG but couldn’t really justify getting it for myself. Now that I have a kid I can finally get it. It’s not like Archie’s going to be allowed to play with it, anyway. I used to catch one of the old W Class rattler trams along Latrobe St everyday and it made me feel like a tourist in Melbourne. The roof of this handcrafted tram comes off and there are little wooden people inside to play with. Awesome.
The Cat and Mouse Pull-Along by Lark Made. I love old-school wooden toys (and Archie seems to as well) and this cute little cat riding a scooter would be rad for the little guy to play with.
Anything from Fable Baby. I first saw some of their stuff at a Melbourne design market and LOVE IT. I usually shy away from putting Archie in really babyish clothes, as he looked babyish for about two weeks before morphing into a tiny boy person, but these printed leggings and hand knitted jumpers are gorgeous.
This vest hoodie from Minti. That bear! The colour! The baby hand-shaped pockets! Gah.
