I was so excited when Toca Boca, the creators of our favorite children's apps like Toca Hair Salon and Toca Boo , reached out to me to tell me about a new project. They've teamed-up with a Brooklyn-based tattoo artist to create a special series of temporary tats for kids. The collaboration is an effort to create a synergy of play and art—both digital and physical—inspired by Toca Boca games and characters. The result are physical toys that encourage imagination and self-expression. I love that!
The Toca Boca team was so sweet to send us some tattoos for the boys to play with. It was perfect timing with Halloween AND Sondre's First Birthday around the corner. I can't tell you how much fun we had playing with them, and how many mini snickers I had to give Silas to let me put one on the back of his neck. He wanted them to cover his belly and both arms. Sondre insisted on only his arms and belly. :) We love them! Everywhere we go people stop and admire and laugh about the boys' "ink". The colors are vibrant and the designs are so, so cool. Pretty great. We also used them as an integral part of the boys' Halloween costumes.
One of our favorite things to do these days is eat at work with Keenan. So, we drove into the city for a Halloween breakfast! Blurry Halloween images for the win. :)
