If you're looking for something original for your children this Christmas, have a look at this fantastic Polish store Kalimba. Natka Lumiak started her business after making toys for her daughter Hela. Inspired by her traditional childhood, she has built up an amazing range of handcut, sewn and painted softies, dolls, games, musical instruments, wooden toys... with a fresh, contemporary feel.
If you're lucky enough to live in Warsaw (Isabelle!) you can enjoy a cuppa in her Kofifi house, where all kinds of Mother-Child story-telling and artistic events and exhibitions are held.
Looks like a great address, and that's the nicest Little Red Riding Hood I've ever seen!

  3. Why is little red riding hood just so appealing?
