A lovely new collection from Moulin Roty has arrived this spring.
Those of you who follow the work of Moulin Roty with as much enthusiasm as me will know that they have two key 'launch phases' throughout the year - in the first few months of the year they add new collections and elements to their classic nursery ranges, and in autumn they launch new additions to their Memoire d'Enfant classic, collectible range (which is a bit more 'Christmassy', so the timings make sense)
So, this means the new collection now, which began to arrive in March is a brand new addition to their core nursery range. And it's a lovely one.
Meet 'Pomme des Bois' - a little trio of friends who forage in the forests for fruits. There are three characters - Harry the squirrel, Anatole the donkey and their friend the duck. I can't seem to find a name for the duck in the Moulin Roty literature, but have scoured back through the work of the designer, Elodie Coudray, and I think he is called Simonet. Aww.
As always in a core nursery range from Moulin Roty you will find classic soft toys, rattles, comforters, musicals and activity toys. Unusually, in this range, the comforter and rattle have been combined into one tactile, cuddly, rattly offering.
I really can't choose a favourite toy. I love squirrels so obviously Harry is pulling at my heart strings - he has tufts on his ears! - and as a proud owner of four runner ducks I am naturally very fond of Simonet. There is also such a gorgeous musical toadstool.
I hope you love this new range as much as I do - and look out for new additions over the next year or so.
