As moms who sometimes want options beyond floral designs or mod prints on our baby gear, we loved the awesome anime-inspired diaper bag collaboration between Ju-Ju-Be and Tokidoki.

This new Be Techy collection features Tokidoki’s cool animé patterns and Ju-Ju-Be’s great attention to design and detail. You’ll find laptop and tablet sleeves in two fun patterns on Ju-Ju-Be’s website, or head over to the Tokidoki for the Godzilla-inspired Kaiju City pattern (very top).

If you’re going to Instagram your Easter eggs today, why not try Instagramming a Pinterest-ready Easter egg with a Twitter icon, then save it on Flickr? Or something. Well, you can do that if you’re crafty enough to emulate these amazing social media Easter eggs created by Nataly Birch on Deviant Art.

Or, just share them on Instagram. With credit, of course. That’s Easter, 2016-style. Find the...Read More
We always love seeing the annual winners of the Doodle 4 Google contest, and this year’s huge congrats go out to Akilah Johnson, a super talented Washington DC tenth grader who answered the challenge question, “What makes me…me” with a beautifully visual response called “My Afrocentric Life.” In describing it, she talked how the process of creating it actually helped her discover more about what her art means and why it matters to her, which is pretty cool. Here’s an excerpt of how Akilah wrote about her illustration: My goal with my art was to not only turn heads but souls as well—not only...Read More

With the upcoming launch of 3Doodler Start, our kids can now get in on the action with a kid-friendly 3D pen that will have them making truly incredible plastic creations. In many ways, the 3Doodler Start works just like the original, and version 2.0, 3Doodler pens. Just insert a colorful plastic strand into the back of the pen, and it will come out the tip as a pliable material...Read More
