When I was pregnant with Bee, aged 16, I didn’t have a lot of spare cash for decorating the nursery. In fact I didn’t have a nursery, just a corner of my bedroom with a cot in that I’d bought at a car boot sale. Still, I wanted to make it a pretty corner, so while my tummy grew I made my very own nursery wall art.
I was a little lacking in the paint department, but managed to mix up a good palette with a few basic colours. I took about five sheets of plain A4 paper, cut them into thirds lengthways and joined them together to make a long strip. Then I drew every single one of the Mr Men by hand and painted them.
It was a triumph.
I wish I had it to show you. For years afterwards I kept it, rolled up and tied with a piece of leather that I was wearing round my neck when Bee was born, (because I was super cool and into grunge), but somewhere along the way it has been lost. I’m not a sentimental person, but it’s one of the only things I wish I still had.
Nowadays of course the market is awash with all sorts of stickers and prints for nurseries; not everyone has the time to be painting their own Mr Men borders, what with having jobs and homes and families and what not. If you’re wanting to decorate then, but aren’t sure where to go, there’s one nursery wall art company that sticks out, (if you pardon the pun) – Witty Doodle.
Witty Doodle make wall stickers, canvases and prints for babies and toddlers, but there’s a lot more science behind their stickers than there was behind my Mr Men border. Their designs have been created with the help of a child psychologist and are designed to encourage brain and vision development in the first year of life.
Witty Doodle’s wall stickers have been specially designed to grow with your baby and are fully re-positionable, so you can change them around as often as you want – it’s a great way to surprise your baby and nurture their curiosity and perceptivity. Everything is top quality and made of child-friendly materials. Check out the Witty Doodle website for more information.
