This Jonathan Adler junior lion bank encourages starting a saving habit early in life. Or perhaps it'll just encourage you to save up to buy more Jonathan Adler things. Either way, it's an attractive piece of design.
The designs of Madeline Rogers, otherwise known as Mibo, are no strangers to this site. This Sew Your Own Lion tea towel is another product that reflects her retro style.
The design functions as a fully functional, 100% cotton tea towel, decorated with a charming image of a 70s style lion. If you fancy being creative, you can the lion out, sew it up and stuff it to make your own toy.
The tea towel costs £11.50.

As well as a song by The Specials, Too Much Too Young is now also the title of a company specialising in stuff for kids. As you'd expect from the name, all the goods have a retro feel, such as this Lottie Lion meal set.
Made in the UK, the bone china cup and plate set all are decorated with the an illustration of a friendly lion, very much worked in a late 60s/70s style. If lions are still a little scary, they also sell sets featuring child friendly designs of trains, toadstools and elephants. Take a look at their website for games and reworked vintage items suitable for nurseries too.
All the items in this meal set are available to buy separately or you can get the whole lot for £30.
