In case you look for some funky, colorful 60s and 70s inspired design for the nursery, I have just the perfect company for you.  Petits démons, which by the way means ‘little demons’, so they surely have some charming kids in mind :P, produces unique pieces in vibrant prints, but also has delicate pastels in store, should you be less daring.  Among this French company’s collection, you can find tetrahedron shaped music boxes, baby bunting, crib bumper pads, festoons, bibs.. you name it.


If you are as much a fan of the movie Amélie with Audrey Tautou, or Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain, as it is called in the original, then you really have to get one of these lovely music boxes. So far, I’ve never come across one that played part of Amélie’s score. I just love this movie’s soundtrack, it is so beautiful and playful, and so utterly French, I could listen to it almost every day (little hint, if you don’t know it yet, check it out at Amazon e.g.), and La valse d’Amélie is one of my favorite pieces of the album. I can’t possibly express in words how delighted I am that this piece is available on Petits démons music boxes (along with a few other ones). Now this is really a melody that I don’t mind being played over and over. After all, the sound of the music box should not only be pleasing to baby’s ears, right? Anyway, I was digressing, so here are some more pictures:

Unfortunately though, Petits démons being a small company, it is actually not that easy to find any online stores that stock their items.  On the other hand, that is exactly what increases their products’ charms to me even more, because you can be almost certain nobody you know will have the same items in their nursery, so it’s not like buying from Ikea and everybody who comes over knows the name and price of your furniture! However, enjoying a quiet Tuesday evening and eating tiny spoonfuls of chocolate cake batter (yummy), I decided to check out all the retailer information Petit démons provides on its website to see if there is also an English speaking webshop available.  Luckily, French store Pop-line is just what I was looking for, since I don’t like to present products without giving information about how to obtain them. Music box 42.00€, bumper pad 76.00€, small bunting 72.00€.
