For Christmas, Santa brought my son a doll house. It was the only thing he wanted.
The doll house was very popular right around Christmas, then it had a long-ish break with intermitent play, but lately it’s been getting a lot more attention again. These days, though, my son is NOT into having the doll house in any kind of order. In fact, he used the word “ransacked” to describe how it looked which was accurate. Why he wants his poor Koala family to live like that is beyond me, but it prompted me go get a little bin to put the tiny accessories in so they don’t get vaccummed up during this disarray phase. And looking at all of the delightful little doll house things, reminded me of this amazing Easter Egg the makers hid in the newspapers that came with the living room furniture.
There are two newspapers. Sunday, April 1 and Monday, April 2. Here they are:
I mean, come on. He discovered a treasure! But then: he was so disappointed because “Treasure was just a broken box!” I find this endlessly hilarious. And I want to thank whoever behind the scenes at Epoch or Tomy designed these amazing tiny newspapers.

I am OBSESSED with this product. I’ve had it open in a tab of my browser for a full week.
They’re called mahabis and they’re slippers with soles that you can clip on to turn them into shoes that you can wear outdoors!! It’s, like, the perfect thing for every apartment-dweller who’s trying to keep street dirt out of her home. Also perfect for nerds like me who can’t get enough of transformer clothing (I once had a fully inside-out-reversible skirt from J. Crew. It was amazing. And never mind those knit dresses that you can wear a zillion ways . . .). Plus, you get to pick your favorite base + sole color combo – they have blue and pink and yellow . . . how can you not want to collect them all?!
What do you think? Would you buy these?
To be frank, the only reason I haven’t yet is the price tag. I fell in love with these while I was looking at the price in euros (but without doing the conversion) and when I clicked over to US dollars I got sticker shock. Still, they seem pretty great . . .
