The Savvy Five: On the Wall


Don’t get your back up against the wall just because you need to inject a little life into a room (or get more organized because it’s the New Year and all). We have the SavvyFive for you this month, full of our favourite things to put on our walls:

Little Chipipi Wall Stickers
Good for: The budding designer (or the indecisive mom)
Why It Made the List: Kids love these sets of mom-designed and Australian made adhesive artwork because they are removable and repositional over and over again, allowing for all kinds of creative scenes. Moms love them because the designs are gorgeous and the stickers do not damage walls or leave any residue. (Available from, $79.99 includes approximately 40 stickers)

Mally Bibs Art CardsMally Bibs Art Cards
Good for: A cost-effective way to add some zest to a child’s bedroom, the playroom or a bathroom
Why It Made the List: We’ve been fans of the MallyBibs leather appliqué designs for a long time now so we were excited to find a way to display them permanently. Pick up a set of three art cards and create your own custom art installation. We love the Bear/Bee/Bird combo but there are over 50 designs to choose from, from animals to sports, and you can even create your own custom design. The cards fit perfectly into IKEA Ribba frames. (Available from, $6.95)

Hockey Stick Hooks
Hockey Stick HooksGood for: Inspiring little boys to keep their room neat (we’ve actually seen it first hand) or organizing the back hall
Why It Made the List: This fun and functional set of three hooks gives a whole new meaning to the hockey term ‘hooking’. Handmade in Vancouver by mom entrepreneur Jacqueline De’Ath, it’s sustainably made from 100% recycled formaldehyde-free MDF and finished with non-toxic adhesives and low VOC finishes. (Available at, $40)
