Halloween DIY - Easy felt monsters to make with your kids

Let's sew some easy felt stuffed monsters for Halloween! A few months ago, my son, who sees me so often when I am sewing  and making plushies for Petit Loulou, came to ask me if he could also make a little stuffed monster. He is barely 4 years old and already wants to start making his own toys! Children are really amazing, they learn with a disconcerting ease. Just adapt a little bit to get within their reach, and they make real wonders. I've put together a little Halloween DIY tutorial to make your own little stuffed monsters at home. It does...

Melvin the fish is the hero of a book!

Book review Petit loulou's news Story time

Melvin the fish is the hero of a book!

About a year ago, DK publishing contacted me because they intended to feature my Melvin the fish in their new book, "Peekaboo under the sea". For this, they asked me to make two different expressions to Melvin: his little playful eye, but also a wide open eye, because it is really more convenient to play hide and seek ... A year after sending Melvin I had the treat to receive a small package from DK. The book was ready to be distributed! I then discovered that Melvin was the main character. It was such an amazing surprise! The book, of a very classical composition,...

Story Time: Touch Think Learn ABC by Xavier Deneux

Touch Think Learn: ABC by Xavier Deneux is a beautiful and unique tactile book to introduce your little one to the alphabet. I was immediately drawn to it when I caught sight of this beautiful, quite imposing book, on the library shelves. Its vivid and colourful illustrations will delight everyone in the family.  Each page has raised die cut letters or shapes  so your little one can enjoy running their little fingers over them. It's a great way to get familiar with the alphabet. Each letter of the alphabet is associated with an image and a word.  If you don't know Xavier Deneux's work her...

Snug as a Bug in a Rug, a Family Board Game

Snug as a Bug in a Rug is a fun collaborative family board game that encourages kids' growth. It develops color, size, shape and number recognition. Because of the three levels of difficulty, you can even play with kids of different ages at the same time. Each child simply plays at their level. It can make the game challenging for older kids and easier for the little ones all at once! The rules are quite simple. First, you twirl a spinner to select a color, a shape and/or a number. Then, you need to find a bug with one to three...

New plushie Petit loulou's news

The Making of a Plushie - Pejo, the Hippo, Resident of Science World Vancouver!

My little man and I are huge fans of Science World here in Vancouver, so you can imagine how thrilled I was the day they got in touch with me to ask if I could make a very special plushie, for a very special occasion!  We often visit the Wonder Gallery at Science World, where my son loves to experiment and climb the big tree there. I love the designs of the characters they come up with at the center, so it was a real pleasure to work on Pejo, the Hippo! I thought it would be fun to share a little behind the scenes...
