    Oh my gosh! These are so amazing! We just discovered the Moomin’s last year, but you don’t see much of their stuff here in the US. I LOVE the dinner wear!!

    The Bangalore Book Fair is on and I found so many treasures in a used book stall. Parked myself shamelessly on the floor and went through pile after pile!

    Currently they are all being devoured up, dinner all forgotten.

    Found a lovely book called The Button Box and thought of you (and we’ve never even met!)- how you’d do stuff around the story etc :)

    oopa that comment was meant for the previous post about the igloos. would LOVE to have lay my hands on immi – world habitats are the flavour of the season with the 5 yr old.

    and LOVE moomintrolls. awesome gift ideas!

    btw waitrose did a whole range of the hungry caterpillar cutlery/crockery one time i think.

    and lastly, tulika (the publisher of my mother’s sari) has recently brought out gift options (mugs, gift paper, etc) based on their recent books based on the panchatantra stories (heard of these?)

    I’d love to know more about The Button Box – we have a button box and it gets played with everyweek – the girls love using them to thread, or just as as magic objects / money / cakes / things to put in bags. And I love the excuse to add to our collection whenever I see a beautiful button!

    I definitely recommend Immi – just beautiful and such a lovely story. Off now to see if the tulika products you mention can be viewed on line!
