We’re always on the hunt for products that are relevant to both parent and baby. These animal boxes by Karl Zahn evoke a fun whimsy and beautiful simplicity.
Designed to be personal figures, Zahn says that they represent a “power animal – a totem for our individual ambitions.”
However you look at it, their simple geometric form sure adds to each animal’s symbolic character.

When packing snacks for your baby or toddler you may be tempted to use the tried and true plastic sandwich baggy but now it is just as convenient and environmentally responsible to take along a reusable bag or sandwich pouch. We think this is definitely something to instill in our children from a young age.
We have found the cutest around and they are made by Semilla. They are made with non-toxic nylon and offer the cutest fabric patterns to choose from. They are a great addition to our Jam Pack and are a smart, green choice.
Our Jam Pack converts from diaper bag to child’s backpack when your little one gets older. You can learn more about our Jam Pack here and to get 15% off a Semilla purchase at checkout, use coupon code: BUMBLERIDE.
