1 Dearest One
Takeshi Sawada’s artful deer-like chair is guaranteed to become an heirloom, if not the family pet. Tykes will want to pet the plush faux-fur seat while they relax against the antler backrest, made from solid European oak. Bambi Chair, $370, at Ella + Elliot.

2 Goody Goody Gum Drops
Available in mint and peach colours with grey-dipped bottoms, the leather strap on these tie-dye-style Danish beanbags can be removed for easy washing. Made from 100 per cent cotton. Mimi’s Circus Bean Bag, $250, at Advice from a Caterpillar.

3 Two’s Company
When your kids have a space-saving bunk, fights about who gets to sleep in the upper nest melt away. The Perch separates into a solo twin bed and a standalone loft, creating extra living space below. Perch Twin Bunk, from $1745, at West Coast Kids.

4 Future Perfect
Don’t grow out of it with this quirky felt garland. Featuring upside-down lettering and graphic power-boosting shapes, it’s the accessory every misfit can rally around. Garland, $20, at Drake General Store.

5 Nice and Neat
Designed to be in reach of kids and grownups, this handy birch coat rack offers a wide bottom shelf for laundry baskets and off-season footwear. Diablo Coat Rack, $350, at Kids at Home.
