Enter Giveaway & Win The Crocheted Wooden Teething Ring Of Your Choice With Mjolkig!

‘Tis the season to be pregnant! I am pregnant and quite a few of my friends are or have recently given birth. I have been on the look for useful yet pretty and natural birth gifts for my friends (and myself). Being a fairly new mum, my priorities have changed and from big name brand companies (pre-pregnancy), I have shifted my interest to natural, organic and handmade products.

Mjolkig’s crocheted wooden teething ring are amazing: there are not only absolutely beautiful, but they are handmade by a British mum of two anglo-swedish young children, and they are very practical. Easy to wash, easy to hold for baby, and highly resistant. My daughter has been enjoying hers for months. If you are interested in the Montessori and the Waldorf approach, you will enjoy this teething ring better than a plastic one.

Rachael is happy to offer one lucky mother, expectant mother, or anyone else for that matter (ie. you have a baby shower coming up or a birth gift to make…) the crocheted wooden teething ring of your choice. Colors are displayed on the Etsy Shop. She will ship anywhere in the world! 


Domestic Diva! Congratulations and thank you to all participants.

About Mjolkig and Rachael:

My items are inspired by Scandinavian folk design and handmade in Paris. I make natural and simple baby toys and gifts inspired by Waldorf and Montessori principles. My favourite items to make are the Montessori infant mobiles such as the Gobbi or Munari which are designed to stimulate the senses of the very youngest babies. You can see how my second son enjoyed his by taking a look at my blog or YouTube channel.

But my most loved items are the traditional Scandinavian crochet covered teething rings. I have been making them for many years now and they make perfect gifts for babies. I can custom make any colour that you like. I make all of my items in either Paris or the Swedish countryside where I live with my lovely family. I love to use natural, organic and non toxic materials and all items are packaged beautifully so that they can be given as gifts.

If you want to get to know me a little better feel free to visit me at where I blog about making my own children’s toys, natural living and applying Montessori and Waldorf philosophies to our everyday lives. I also run a free worldwide cultural exchange to put you and your little ones in touch with families around the world.

Please do come back to see what’s new in my shop because I have a lot more items to add!

Warmest wishes

Worldwide Culture Swap l Our site is launching tonight !

A lovely lady named Rachael (a British expat mum of two in France and Sweden) has been running a Worldwide Cultural Exchange for some time and it has proved so popular that she asked for help a few weeks ago. Myrtille (a French expat mum of one located in Gran Canaria, Spain) and myself have joined her to work on extending her beautiful project into the Worldwide Culture Swap (WCS).

It includes four different culture swaps:

  • The Worldwide Culture Swap: you will be put in a group with 5 families from around the world.  The objective of the swap is to share information with each family about the country in which you live (or that you will be representing) so that they can get a feel for the culture of that country. This is achieved by sending a package (usually addressed to the child or children) with bits and pieces that you have chosen to give a good overview of what it is like to live there.
  • You can also sign up to an Individual Worldwide Culture Swap via the Worldwide Culture Swap. You will be match with another family and will only have to send one package. This is great for family who have less time, or can’t spend too much at a given time, etc…
  • The US States Culture Swap:  you will be put in a group with 4/5 other families representing different US states.  The objective of the swap is to share information with each family about the state in which you live (or that you will be representing). This is achieved by sending a package (usually addressed to the child or children) with bits and pieces that you have chosen to give a good overview of what it is like to live there
  • The Culture Swap for Schools: If your class signs up for the Culture Swap for Schools it will be matched with a class similar in age from another part of the world so that you can put together your own cross cultural project to suit your needs. You will send and receive letters, packages, postcards or whatever you agree between the two educators.
  • Find A Penpal: Are you interested in a the Worldwide Culture Swap but you would rather develop a long term relationship with a corresponding family? Would you like your children to learn more about the world, make new friends, develop an interest in writing or even practice a new language?
    If yes then the Find a Pen Pal initiative is for you.
  • Get involved ! This is a collaborative site compiled from submissions sent by you from all around the world !

We will soon be running our first giveaway competition so keep an eye out ! And spread the wor(l)d !

The Little Red Farm Worldwide Cultural Exchange l Follow-up

 If  you haven’t read my previous post about the worldwide cultural exchange we have signed up for, you can do so here. We were “assigned” four other families located in: Singapore, the United States, the United Kingdom and France (but it is a Brazilian family). I decided to represent both France and Canada thinking it would be more fun ! I posted two care packages with Canadian goodies to the Brazilian and the British family this afternoon and I have just started working on the French goodies. It was a lot of fun to put together the first two packages and hope they will enjoy their packages !
