The French have a knack for making things the rest of the world covet, and French-designed children’s items are amongst the most highly coveted.
French Bazaar - www.frenchbazaar.com.au – was born in 2007 when Virginie (originally from France) and Richard (a long time resident of France) came back to Australia and filled a gap in the Australian market for wonderfully delightful French items. Their large range now includes homewares, stationery, wall stickers, and a lovely range of gifts for men, women and children.
The kids section has me wishing I was a kid again! With a whimsical range of bright and colourful toys perfect for gift-giving, you could easily stock up for upcoming birthdays or special events. The Marielle Bazard range of gifts would a perfect gift for young children right up to the tween years. Fabulous for budding artists or crafty kids, the Princess To Colour comes with a soft doll to be coloured using the special Marielle Bazard washable pens. Then, when your little one want to give the Princess a fresh look, simply wash and start drawing all over again! There is a range of other designs including a robot, chicken and a fox.
