Minimalist vs MAXIMALIST

All children are born maximalists.  It doesn’t really matter if you are a minimalist – your child is not.  They’re looking for more, brighter, faster, louder, NOW!  They know your carefully painted magnolia walls look better with crayon and your cream carpet is incomplete without tomato sauce.

To cater to small people with big imaginations, I’ve been designing some costumes to be worn over the smooth and sleek lines of rokii, to turn it from adult-friendly decor into a pimped-out pet for small people.  Happily, the outfits can be removed and replaced when a new identity is required, or a return to simplicity is preferred.

1. Giddy-up: your small-person horse lover can now saddle up and ride off into the distance.

2. Baa-Lamb: a woolly little addition to your flock, unlikely to stray and completely house trained.

3. Ladybug: a sleek, stylishly spotted presence in your home.

The outfits can be worn whilst rokii is being ridden around on wheels, or when placed on the rocking base, depending on whether you want to rock or roll.

There are more characters currently in development, so watch this space.

Back shortly, I just need to duck off and have another baby. Yee Haaa.

    Can I order the top one to come to work on every day? I think I need to gallop on down the street on one of those in order to have actually lived a fulfilled life. Seriously. I’ll pick it up on my next trip over.
