Whether you prefer the sly fox, the wise owl, the clever raccoon, the bushy-tailed squirrel, or the prickly hedgehog, woodland creatures are popping up everywhere: on kids' pajamas, dresses, and tees; on bedding, nursery decor, and kid-friendly artwork; on puzzles, in books, and as stuffed animals. We tracked down 60 kid-friendly, on-trend woodland animal finds from Etsy, The Land of Nod, Blabla, and many more. Keep clicking to find your favorite wild thing!
Blabla's adorable stuffed animals and dolls are among our favorite-ever kid finds, so we were instantly enamored when we discovered the Blabla-themed birthday bash thrown for 1-year-old Margot. Margot's mom, Lauren Overton, enlisted the help of her good friend, photographer Lucinda Newby, to plan the pastel-popping party, dotted with Blabla dolls wearing birthday hats! "The charming toys were baby gifts, Christmas gifts, Easter bunny gifts, and 'just because' gifts . . . and she adores them all (and so does mom)!" Lucinda says. "The fun palette and cute striped wardrobe of the classic dolls made a colorful backdrop for a celebration." We love the idea of taking a simple, already-on-hand inspiration point and running with it, and we bet you'll agree after you see this party's cute details.

Every little girl needs a special doll — or two or three — but why go with those ubiquitous, and somewhat creepy, lifelike dolls? We found 10 awesome, modern rag and crochet dolls that are as stylish as they are sweet. We tracked a few of them down at The Land of Nod, which now stocks some of the most creative, contemporary toys around, and threw in some indie dolls from Etsy and one from favorite kid-brand Blabla. It's hard to pick a favorite among this cool doll group, but give it a go!
