Baby Knee Pads

Baby Knee Pads

  With belated start of the cold weather in Australia I feel like I can finally start designing my Summer range of baby knee pads. While Crawlpants will be fine for much of our summer, during high summer less is definitely more! Skittle and Mouse will be releasing a line of baby bloomers with matching knee-pads. The great thing about these baby knee pad sets, is that they can be mixed and matched, worn separately or together. With the separate baby knee pads you will even be able to layer the knee-pad over leggings when the weather cools down.  Now...

Exciting Changes at Skittle and Mouse HQ

Exciting Changes at Skittle and Mouse HQ

A part of my vision for Skittle and Mouse has always been to expand my online store from just Crawlpants and Kneepads and stock a hand curated range of scooters, ride-ons and helmets.

I can't wait to share with you!  So now I can officially say: Happy knees, happy crawling, happy scooting!

Are skinned knees a part of childhood?

Are skinned knees a part of childhood?

Recently a picture popped up on my Facebook feed of a toddler with two badly skinned knees (think blood dripping to the floor) It had the caption : "Skinned knees are as much a part of childhood as hot chips and long summer days" I have been following this page for quite a while. It shares lovely images of children at play, but this post I thought - 'really?' I understand the very real concern that modern children are being mollycoddled, not given the freedom to play and explore. As a parent it is your natural instinct to protect your...
