Peach Tree Pottery, a pottery shop open everyday in Los Angeles, opened in 1999 as a place for people to come learn how to throw pots and for artists to show their work. Classes are provided for adults and children and even 3 year-olds are encouraged to start with private lessons to get an experience on the wheel. At Bumbleride, we believe in unleashing your creativity, and can’t think of a more fun, relaxing, and friendly place to learn pottery than Peach Tree Pottery. Take a peek below at a video that gives you more details on Peach Tree.

If you do not live in the LA area, but want to find information and inspiration in a city closer to you about Pottery and Ceramics, check out Ceramic Arts Daily.

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore iPad App

July 18th, 2011


The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore iPad App Trailer from Moonbot Studios on Vimeo.

We were intrigued by “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore,” a wonderfully innovative and successful iPad application for children that sparks their curiosity, and lets them play, without just jabbing buttons. John Pavlus of FastCompany.com, a writer and filmmaker, reviewed the app as “a well-written bedtime story and an immersive animated movie at once — without being ‘too much’ of either.” You can buy the app in the itunes App Store for $4.99

“I Am Here” Map

I Am Here Map

As kids, we’ve rolled our Matchbox cars through an imaginary town, used a couch as a cliff or carpet as a forest. The I Am Here Map brings a little reality to your kids’ imagination. The I Am Here Map digitally prints your actual neighborhood map in a way that easily understood by your little ones. It gives them a chance to learn where they actually are while playing.

Wave Garden is a pretty interesting concept born out of the idea of the skate park.  In 2005 engineer Josema Odriozola and economist Karin Frisch wanted to combine two of their favorite things: surfing and building skate parks.  Have a look at these little tykes catching some waves!
