Here at Little Flea, we have long been a supporter of the amazing bedding brand, Forivor and their magical range of duvet sets, blankets and nightwear. It seems we’re in great company as the judging panel at this years Junior Design Awards have awarded Forivor a prize for ‘Best Interiors Product Design’ for their Legends of the Sea collection. It’s so well deserved and they will be finding out whether they have won Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze on 25th September.
It seems so fitting that this collection has been highlighted at this time when Greta Thunbergs activism and recent sailing voyage has been so well documented. All Forivor products are sent by sea to cut down on carbon emissions and they also will be planting five trees with @growtrees_global with every duvet set or blanket purchased online and one tree for smaller purchases. With the recent Amazon fires on everyones minds, Forivor is really committed to doing their bit for the environment and being a conscious and sustainable brand.
The legends of the Sea collection s inspired by British marine wildlife in a bid to inspire children to protect our oceans. The beautifully illustrated bedding is reversible and features a calming seascape on on side and when you turn the bedding over at night, this underwater world is transformed into magical creatures to encourage storytelling and inspire magical dreams.
The duvet sets and blankets is presented in an organic cotton suitcase for play, sleepovers and safe keeping and also come with a set of character cards that give facts about the wildlife as well as storytelling cues to help with those magical stories when the children are tucked up in bed.

Summer is upon us! It’s prime time when families hit the road for their holiday. While the holiday part can be exciting, traveling with children can take its toll. Whatever form of transportation you’re using, at some point they will ask, “Are we there yet?” Possibly multiple times. But with a little creativity and a few easy-to-carry items, your travel time can be just as fun as the holiday itself.
For the Love of Mum is a beautifully curated online store for stylish mums selling a gorgeous selection of products for pregnancy and baby.
Vicki founded FTLOM in 2017 after the birth of her third baby. Pregnancy and birth is a life changing and magical experience but it is also hard and challenging and can be hugely disruptive, leaving new mums on a physical and emotional rollercoaster.
“Nice To Meet You” is a collective project by New York-based designers Teasy Shiruo Sun and Friszi Tianyang Jin. Comprised of handmade interactive garments, the timeless pieces are inspired by an original children’s story written by the designers themselves. The collection aims to educate adolescent life values and encourage imagination through its innovative, playful and earth-friendly textile design. The collection features high craftsmanship such as felting, knitting and natural dying.
We chatted to Teasy and Friszi about working together and what the collection is about.
Small Stories are bounding into SS19 with a collection of kids clothing with bold prints like camo, ladybugs, dots and flowers in punches of oranges, blues and greens and pastel yellows and blues. Deigned in the UK and manufactured in Europe, the Small Stories ethos is to create timeless collections inspired by a child’s artistic approach to self expression.
Amy from I Should B has written a heartfelt blog especially for Little Flea about her experiences with bullying and how it led her to starting her business. Having been bullied myself at school and it having a massive affect on my life, this blog has really resonated with me. Read on to hear Amy’s story.
Newly launched, Small Stories creates ethically produced, artistically inspired clothing from children aged 0-6 years. There are sweaters, quilted jackets, shirts, dresses, rompers and joggers all in fun, contemporary prints including fish, checks, spots and clouds.
We all know the importance of good product shots when you own a brand. They bring life to your products and showcase them at their very best. Selena from Iggy Mint, is a freelance product stylist and brand photographer, based in London who loves working with independent lifestyle businesses, breathing magic into their brands.
How many times have you told the kids to get off their screens this summer? For me it's been about 8,967,450 times!
The allure of YouTube or 'Fortnite' is like a magnet to them! Getting them to take a step outside is like asking them to go back to school for the summer!
So this is why I have booked my youngest in to Camp Wilderness for a few days. They are offering 3-day and 5-day residential summer camps for children aged 6 to 15 at locations all over the country and are bringing their magical outdoor adventures just in time for the school holidays.
Summer is officially upon us, with many families looking to take their little ones abroad for the first time. While the holiday itself is a great opportunity to spend quality time together as a family, the process of actually getting there can be quite daunting - Am I limited to 100ml of expressed milk or formula on board? How many nappies should I pack?
If this sounds like you, it’s key to plan for all eventualities. For example, it's a good idea to bring one nappy for each hour that you're travelling, plus extra for delays. Also, packing a blanket will help comfort your little one, especially if it's cold on the plane. If your child is slightly older, you might want to pass the time by introducing them to the language and culture of your destination. You can do this by using an offline app on a tablet or buying a book to distract them during the flight.
Finally, remember that most travellers around you will be sympathetic towards any upsets and will be impressed if you’ve brought a variety of distractions to ease the situation. To give you a more detailed rundown of what you should pack in your hand luggage, how to deal with travel- related issues, and how to keep children of all ages entertained on board, take a look at the fun animated guide below by Sainsbury’s Bank.
