Sebra 2014

Wednesday, April 02nd, 2014 | Author:

When we saw the new Sebra new catalogue 2014 for the first time we were totally amazed. The new collection of this little company from Denmark comes in trendy pastel colours and the patterns they use remind me on a cover of a photo album from the 60ies that I bought long time ago on a Cologne flea market for little money. A lot of small people and houses were drawn on it in a similar style as those found on the current Sebra melamine tableware. At home we also have a picture book that is also from the 60’s. Miroslav Sasek is the name of the author and I love his drawings. I do not know what you call this style exactly but he fascinates me in any case. If anyone knows the name please give it to me. It looks like this:
Sebra Melamine Tableware
And how this looks in combination with the new Sebra products in our shop you will see here.

Colourful new RICE tableware

Sunday, February 09th, 2014 | Author:

Melamine tableware from RICE was the product with which we started our cooperation with this sympathetic brand from Denmark years ago. And as before, it is still one of our bestsellers. Whether multicolour or monochrome. And the new year now starts again with new RICE melamine tableware. First there are the patterned printed cups and bowls RICE introduced approximately three years ago and continues to expand the collection. We like the new vintage floral patterns and patterns with butterflies and birds really much. You will find our secial site for all by clicking here. We are also happy about the new RICE dishes in Japan style. But an absolute place of honor in our stock: the new RICE children tableware with stars, fly agaric and racing cars.
RICE kids tableware
Why? Because with every sale RICE supports a children’s aid project in Vietnam. Motto: “Every child has the right to play.” That goal: a safe childhood in Vietnam. RICE sponsors an educational program to help children learn how to avoid the explosives which unfortunately still slumber since the Vietnam War very numerous in the soil. The project is supervised by the Danish Refugee Aid. No one can help everyone – but everyone can help someone!

RICE Denmark 2014

Saturday, November 09th, 2013 | Author:

RICE Denmark 2014! Yes, you read that right. The year 2013 has not yet begun but yesterday RICE presented the new RICE Denmark 2014 collection to us. And as always (or almost always , we do not to exaggerate) we were extremely pleased with the new articles. Whether melamine tableware, home accessories, colorful raffia baskets for children’s rooms and living areas, pillows or ceramics – everything was very colorful and cheerfully designed. The motto of the new collection: “Add some glitter.” And with that RICE actually succeeded. So we are looking forward to all RICE novelties which will probably be send to us from early December. We are allowed to show at this point (unfortunately) nothing else but some colorful pictures from the RICE showroom on our facebook page. RICE Denmark 2014So let yourself be surprised later! And if you want to be the first to be informed you should simply sign up for our newsletter and we give you a mail notification when everything is in stock. Especially many thanks to Bine from RICE who has shown us everything. And our son Emil also had a lot fun and was allowed to paste eyes, mustache and all sorts of sparkling elements to some RICE melamine cups and pates. Finger food, pumpkin soup and tart also have been very tasteful :-)

Ecological kids clothes Cologne

Sunday, October 20th, 2013 | Author:

loud + proud,loud proud , sture lisa, Toby Tiger and green cotton ( fred ‘s world and fred ‘s connection) are all nice new brands in our store in Cologne . The keyword is what unites them all ” ecological children’s clothing .” Why we chose for them? Because every baby body, t-shirt and bodysuit also look really great next to the fine ecological aspect. Our son Emil, product tester and model at the same time wants to keep the things after the photoshooting in Cologne always. So this cute t-shirt with monkey by Toby Tiger:
ecological kids clothes Cologne

Early ecological children’s clothing was more affected by a not so hip aftertaste. This has changed more and more the last few years. Besides, even more emphasis is placed on fair working and production conditions . Sorry, we note nevertheless increasingly often mere lip service that our customers implement it into practice and are willing to pay for it also reasonable prices . Quality, ecology and fairness throughout the production chain have nunmal easily meet your price does not mean that the things are overpriced. One wonders it myself very often as large retailers offer a down jacket for kids for 8,99 € and then also can not be advertised on prime time for huge sums on marketing costs. This is only possible if others pay for it and that with poverty wages and poor working conditions. We think it is worth trying an overpriced latte to drink less and to act for and buy a little fairer. Staff are at : ecological kids clothes Cologne.

RICE melamine X-Mas Edition

Saturday, October 19th, 2013 | Author:

RICE plates and cups there are by now in all colors and with different patterns. We started with the solid color melamine tableware which there was in our shop RICE initially in 12 colors. Over time, some colors were added and some were taken back from the range. Two years ago, the colorful melamine tableware was introduced which is growing in popularity. RICE now has a limited edition Christmas colorful crockery published what we are delighted.
RICE plate and cup X-Mas
There are cups , bowls and plates and then a total of three different floral patterns. Very successful as we are , I hope you see it the same way. To instantly make you a picture of it once this way. Otherwise just can remark that the melamine quality as always is outstanding and free from any contaminants ( BPA and phthalates). Hand strength is self So combine and decorate with biscuits or cookies. Oh yes, right -looking Christmas napkins performed also. And I find it still a quality melamine that my wife and I had thought about to let himself be printed or printed melamine tableware. We went to a melamine producers in the Cologne region and had thereby RICE dish as a sample. He was visibly excited and literally said that he has yet to see a better melamine for normal home use. So much for that. And by printing it yourself Let us then come off quickly because the required numbers to make the whole profitable for us as a small family business to Cologne some were too high or the quality in smaller lower-cost numbers would not have been satisfactory to our notions.

Our warehouse is moving

Friday, October 18th, 2013 | Author:

What are the currently exciting times! Now that we have used our camp here in Master Gerhard Street right on Rathenauplaz in Cologne since about 5 years now , we are simply pushed to our limits. Who would have thought when we moved. Up to that move, I ‘ve sent each packet from my private apartment. Beside the bed is a lot of RICE baskets piled in the living room and the whole melamine tableware. My wife and I have met shortly before the move (and the kiosk of my former shipping service :-)) and I remember how she laughed at the first ” romantic ” meeting in my apartment. Luckily she has not directly taken to their heels. The new TakaTomo camp on beautiful Rathenau place in Cologne on the other hand was pure paradise. Course Overview and finally for all the wonderful things children and furnishings. The work packages and unpack again has been fun. Over the last 5 years then we have expanded and added new brands and products in the assortment. Now it’s time to take the next step , with a mighty large warehouse in the south of Cologne. Moving forward : in 2 weeks. A little bit of jitters we have as we remember how hard and costly the online business has become. On the other hand, we believe in our concept and we hope that in the course of 2014 our first employees have. So far, we really do everything myself because of cost reasons is simply not possible to pay someone Third. The new facilities would also finally allow it, yet the room was way too big for that alone. Our dream would be for example the establishment of a regular RICE showroom and warehouse sale in the beautiful south of Cologne. Until then, however, is still a lot of work and especially the Christmas season ahead of us. When the time comes but we will inform you at this point. Keep your fingers crossed that everything works out!

A RICE house basket for life

Thursday, December 13th, 2012 | Author:

RICE house basketEspecially at Christmas time again we want to briefly touch on one of our classics: the beautiful house shaped RICE toy boxes. When we were invited to the last collection presentation at Hamburg the nice girls from RICE Denmark had decorated an entire wall with it in their showroom. Individually see the baskets already great, but the motley arrangement had something special for yourself. Our son Emil (the little blond man on the left), however, had first to decide arge difficulties with this huge selection on the housing market for the right home for his toys. Ultimately, he chose then the green zoo basket with the brown folding roof, definitely a good choice. And if you are indecisive, we make it with our assortment certainly not easier. But you see yourself on our special page for alle RICE house baskets.

Peace, Kiss and Glamourama – RICE Denmark 2011

Friday, December 03rd, 2010 | Author:

RICE Denmark has provided me with the new spring/summer collection 2011. “Peace, Kiss and Glamourama!” They bring you their interpretation of the good old peace, love and understanding. This spring collection is just one happy statement from one end to the other- a mix of rainbows, floral peace signs, love birds and a lot of kissing. RICE had a lot of fun making this collection and I hope this transpires to you. The glamourama twist is what really makes it RICE. When they went to India to work on this collection one day driving through one of the more rough parts of Delhi their designers saw this big sign saying ‘Glamourama Salon for Ladies’ and instantly fell in love with that word – Glamourama! We can all use a bit of glamourama in our everyday lives and it really doesn’t take much to glam up your home, your handbag, your kitchen or yourself if you feel like it.

The comprehensive library contains something for every child-to read to the child, to read together or to read themselves. More information and ordering www.kinderbriefe.de.

Directly with the beginning of this new year 2010 our son Emil Leo was born one week ago. This means: “Mr. TakaTomo” is father now.
