Modern designs for young families from Ohio? Yes indeed! As an Ohioan, I am so proud to feature today's Mod Fam Find of the Week. A Modern Eden is Dayton, Ohio-based FORGE Ideas's first foray into providing design-astute offerings for young children and their families. Their current product offering is small (3 posters, 1 flashcards set, 2 totes, 1 app, and a partridge in a pear tree) but the concept has so much room to grow. The set of 20 animal flashcards are my favourites because they display all the beautifully-illustrated animals from talented Ryan Clark and I am all for tying in clean design with an educational twist.
The flashcards do not have to be limited to well, JUST BEING flashcards. Here, I pinned some onto a converted noticeboard (made from gallery-wrapped canvas) and displayed them at a location that is closer to my 2-yr-old's line of sight versus high on the wall.
You can't really see it in the photos but the cards have an embossed texture on certain parts of their body so it is extra fun for the kids to run their hands over it. Too neat.
I also placed some in a set of black frames and put four up near my 5-year-old's computer desk.
And this past week, we saw how John and Sherry of YoungHouseLove.com shared 3 cheap and easy wall art ideas at the Babycenter Blog, one of which included displaying the flashcards using some clothespins and twine.
One last idea, you can also purchase 2 sets of the flashcards and combine them to make a memory-game! So many uses for these!
Now thanks to the generosity of the cool peeps at A Modern Eden, I have a set of flashcards OR a poster of your choice, PLUS a canvas tote (you choose between the trees or apple design) to give away to a reader!
(By the way, I use these totes daily to carry my orders and work-related papers - so functional.)
