Happy Spaces at Baby Zilli Launch

A little while back Happy Spaces were invited to attend the launch of Baby Zilli, the new organic baby food range from celebrity chef Aldo Zilli.

The launch was a great success. One of the highlights for me was the balloon maker. By far the best I have honestly ever seen, creating anything from colourful giant octopuses to space men with radar guns! (a great idea for a kid’s party).

Happy Spaces
were very proud to be there to represent our beautiful wall art for children. We also provided a unique fine art print for each of the celebrity goodie bags from our new range being released online in June (watch this space for details).

At the end of the event the kiddies looked content and full to the brim and we took home some yummy Baby Zilli food pouches to try out with our little ones.

Thanks for the invite Baby Zilli!

Outside Fun for the Kids

As a mum of a 3 year old boy who wants to spend every waking hour outside, I am always trying to find fun things for him to do outside to teach him about nature and keep him stimulated (and me too!). The other day I stumbled upon a little gem of a website run by The Woodland Trust and aptly named Nature Detectives. It is packed full to the brim of outdoor activities that you can download and print out, from scavenger hunts to snail racing and amazingly enough you get all this for... NOTHING!!! Yes, that’s right all this for not even a penny – truly amazing these days! However, if you would rather not download and print all the activities yourself then you can just join the club for £12 per year and get printed material for 350 activities.
So there you go, summer in the garden with the little ones sorted – enjoy!

Eating out with kiddo’s can still be a treat!

Great news - The long respected Harden’s Restaurant Guides have launched a new edition especially for parents wishing to eat out with their little ones!

The first “Harden's Eating Out With Babies and Toddlers” is now available (£5.95 at and lists the top baby and toddler friendly restaurants and cafés in the country. The release of the guide follows a survey which revealed – along with other shocking truths – that almost a third of parents have been turned away from a restaurant or café when they arrive with their young family in tow.

Other issues highlighted by the survey that were regulary encountered by parents included a lack of entertainment in restaurants for babies and toddlers (91 %), a lack of baby-changing facilities (85%) and no high chairs (76%).

The guide names The ‘chic’ Wolseley, in London, as the nation’s most baby-friendly independent restaurant and Giraffe as the UK's most baby-friendly restaurant chain, followed by Pizza Express and Carluccio’s.
The guide lists more than 1,000 venues and is based on feedback from 8,000 restaurant-going parents.

I'm ordering one! Sounds like a great gift too.
