My little twin stars (Lala and Kiki) LOVE Mu and Me. When they get enough stars on their chart we go to the shop and choose a Mu and Me something. Little card houses, decals, cards. Sometimes instead of a story, we go online to the Mu and Me website together. http://www.muandme.net/ and read about the characters. The genius creator at Mu and Me puts so much delicious detail into her website. Each greeting card has a story. e.g.
'Amelia found Olive in a small box on her doorstep early one morning in April. She cant be sure who left her this unexpected gift, but has a theory it was Oliver, the boy who lives next door. So she decided to name her "Olive". Not only because of the colour of her eyes, but as a secret message to Oliver to say "I like you too"...
Lala's favourite character is Amelia (then Thandi) and Kiki's Favourite is Debsy (then Ana).
Lala's favourite animal is Olive, then Tet. Kiki's favourite animal is Ping, then Coco (who usually hang with Mala).
So the girls spoted the teeenyest tinyest error on the website and we wrote in to tell the folks at Mu and Me land. Well if they aren't the NICEST people. They brought round 2 gifts to say "well spotted" girls!
The new icons on the wrapping paper (of the gifts) are so beautiful that the girls asked me to open them. Imagine how gourgeous they need to be to not have little girls rip them open!
And inside there were new notebooks! Lala got pink Debsy (and Ping) dressed up like a Ballerina!
And Kiki got yellow Amelia (and Olive) dressed up like a Native American Indian Lady.
And stickers inside! With a thoughtful pocket for your pen.
But Lala's favourite colour is yellow and she LOVES Amelia and Kiki's Favourite colour is pink and she LOVES Debsy. So they swapped.
Thank-you Mu and Me for our special gift. Amazing of you to give our Favourite favourites.
We LOVE your new designs.
