Let Them Eat Cake: Carousel

How to have the hippest birthday on the block

A parent’s worth is not measured by her child’s report card, but by the contents of the goodie bags she hands out at a birthday party.

Go the distance (and we mean all the way across the Atlantic) with Carousel, a new London-based online shop for kid-size celebrations.

Stocking everything from birthday candles to prefilled goodie bags, the expertly curated shop rocks a retro-hipster vibe. Think bird whistles, candy watches, and talking mustache pens mixed in with pirate hats and tiara crowns.


Use the handcrafted banners to decorate day of the shindig; afterward, move them into kiddo’s bedroom to enjoy all year long. Later this spring, Carousel is launching comprehensive party-in-a-box kits to help take some things off your plate.
