  4. Mr Hublot wins short animation Oscar

    A withdrawn, idiosyncratic character with OCD, Mr Hublot is scared of change and the outside world. His solution: he doesn’t step foot outside his apartment! The arrival of the dog Robot Pet will turn his life upside down: he has to share his home with this very invasive companion…

    Mr Hublot is a short animated movie
    Produced by ZEILT productions

  5. Another mother-daughter collaboration.

    I love finding these great creative collaborations! 4yr old “mayhem” and her mum Angie make these amazing paper dresses together and shoot them on Instagram @2sisters_angie. They started out quite basic but nowadays they’re getting quite elaborate and even take inspiration from the catwalk!
    Read a lovely article about them here:

  6. Whimsy Calling
    A lovely little etsy shop where you will find one of a kind handmade art dolls, figurines, unique jewelry, and more. But I love these little monsters best!

  7. Panmacmillans Paper Dolls World Record

    Juno (who is now 2 and a half)  is loving the picture book  ”Paper Dolls” by Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb at the moment- we read it EVERY night!! And luckily i like reading it too, it’s so lovely and has become one of my favourites,

    To celebrate the launch of the book Macmillan Childrens Books broke the Guinness World Records title for the LONGEST chain of paper dolls. The chain was made up of 45,282 dolls and was 4549.7 metres long.

  8. Mother and daughter collaboration

    At first, artist Mica Angela Hendricks didn’t want her four-year-old daughter near her new sketchbook. She is serious about her art, and she knew little Myla would want to scribble all over the pages. Then, her daughter said the words that changed everything.
    “If you can’t share, we’ll have to take it away.”

    She had used her own mother’s words against her, and now Mica had no choice but to indulge Myla. She let her daughter finish one of her sketches, and pretty soon, they had a whole collection of collaborations.
