Eat Drink Play Love: Animal crackers, sweet delights & blind love

ANIMAL CRACKERS

They come with mouse ears, antlers, horns, feelers and ‘eyes’ – and they’re all ready to invade your children’s rooms. Quirky Swiss-designed furniture brand Mobelebt is launching its first collection, Cubanimals, at the Melbourne Design Market, which showcases intelligent design from fashion to to furniture.

BLIND LOVE

Wynstan blinds and panels are installed with child safety devices and automation to keep your rugrats from playing with dangling cords. The new children’s range is full of fun patterns and colourful designs. What kid wouldn’t like a row of cute giraffe silhouettes peeking in at the window?

ONCE IN A BLUE MOON

Would you like a glass of white, red or, ah, blue? Australia’s first blue wine has landed exclusively at Liquorland stores. The Blue Bird is electric in hue, sweet and fruity in taste, and picture-perfect for the #drinkdrankdrunk Insta hashtag. ●
