2. Frog Silicone Strobe Light: These tiny weeny strobe lights come in a rainbow of colours and have a cult following of fans of their flexible silicone bodies.
$9.89 from Knog Lights
3. ‘Let’s Go Ride Bikes’ illustration: Share the two-wheels-good ethos indoors as well as out – Etsy has lots of gorgeous bikey art for sale, but this wood block print by 1canoe2 is my favourite.
