An alternative parent/kid website and zine for the generation who have grown older but not up. The kind who are more likely to be found down the skate park with their kids than teaching them table manners. For the parents who thought they’d never be parents and the kids who think mum and dad are cool (well, kind of).

Old Fashioned Fun

Old Fashioned Fun

What with all this modern technology we have (iPhone apples, Wii machines, Sting-rays), it transpires that kids these days don’t know how to play good old fashioned playground games like Hopscotch.

Komana

We came across Komana at Netil Market just before Christmas. It was one of those “I want everything” moments.
