Creature Comfort

tutu kids!

Little lambs are often curious about all creatures great and small.

But if your tyke is critter crazy, he’ll flip for Tutu Kids’s one-of-a-kind pillows, wall hangings, blankets, backpacks, and purses.

Designed by European-born, Decatur-based architect and mompreneur Anja Weninger, the simple styles feature hand-cut felt appliques adored by parents and their progeny. Loose tails, floppy ears, metal grommets, and shiny sequins bring elephants, rhinos, and other four-legged friends to life.

They’ll learn soon enough that it’s a zoo out there.

Might as well go wild.

Available at Beehive Co-Op, 1831a Peachtree Road, Buckhead (404-351-1166 or beehiveco-op.com).
