Gifts in kind

As some of you know, I feel quite indebted to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, as they saved the life of my then 10 weeks' old son through an emergency operation a few years ago. Not only for this reason I Dream Elephants once again supports GOSH's appeal to think of those kids who can't spend Christmas at home.

We ask you to join us in donating new toys to children who are spending their Christmas at the Great Ormond Street Hospital.  

The hospital is one of the world’s leading children's hospitals. Since its formation in 1852, it has been dedicated to children’s healthcare and to finding new and better ways to treat childhood illnesses.  GOSH deals with over 175,000 patient visits every year acting with the belief “The child first and always.”  To find out more please visit their web site http://www.gosh.org/gen/donate/gifts-in-kind

Below is a list of toys suggested by the hospital. Don't forget the age group you're donating to is 0 - 18 years - teenagers are often forgotten.

What babies love: 

  • mobiles and musical mobiles
  • kaleidoscopes
  • toys to stimulate the senses
  • musical toys

What kids love: 

  • board games (for example Connect 4 and Frustration)
  • computer games (Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, Xbox)
  • arts and crafts (for example paints and Playdough)
  • modelling kits
  • jigsaws
  • kits for girls (for example jewellery making kits and nail art)

What they can't use: used toys, over-sized soft toys, large mechanical or motorised toys, used clothing, second-hand books, used magazines

SS15 pre collection by Molo Kids

It is totally crazy but last week we received the first drop of our SS15 collections. MOLO was first out as always. They are just so eager to show off their new nice designs. :) Below you can see which styles we have and that you can already order.

Have a nice day all and Happy Thanksgiving day if you celebrate this!

Just gorgeous! Love the print and the black belt. Wear it with a cardigan and leggings this winter or save it for the summer and wear it bare shoulders.
We love this comfy sweater with the stars that hide on the side.

Such a practical yet cool jacket. Fits well both with leggings or with dresses. As you prefer! The Mariah jacket will be your favorite we are sure!
The print is just adorable. Here we can see it on the long sleeved girls top.
