Twinkly – Smart lights for any room
Twinkly has these Italian smart Christmas lights that let you create eye-catching lighting animations for your Christmas tree. They’re finally launching in Singapore this year, five years after dressing up in homes in Europe and the US.
It’s a great option that will get the children really excited about decorating the house all-year round. The unlimited colour schemes and animations (jumping reindeers on your Christmas tree, anyone?) are easily adjustable through the companion Twinkly app. And Twinkly is also launching Strings, Festoons and Curtains that you can use inside and outside of the house thanks to their IP44 waterproof rating. That means more places to decorate and have fun! Read about the many ways to make celebrations and festival more special with these smart lightings in our feature here.
The lights are available now through Singapore exclusive distributor Burns+Myers for the 2022 year-end holidays – see twinklynow.com. And they’re be available in major department stores from the second quarter of 2023. (They also come with a one-year warranty, which is something you don’t find for regular string lights!)
Indigrow – Children’s books with a difference
Indigrow creates interactive multicultural playbooks that help kids appreciate the cultures they are surrounded by in a delightful, playful way.
With an imaginative snapshot on every page and a story in every letter, these unique playbooks can be enjoyed in limitless ways. Spark imagination by asking your little one to complete the story on a page they like. Ignite creativity by using playdough or crayons to recreate beautiful images in the book. Talk about diversity by asking questions about different characters and what they’re doing. These are more than just books – they’re like 100 play sessions! They’re also a fantastic, meaningful holiday gift to help little ones celebrate differences early through inspired moments of play.
Also check out the holiday bundles, which include customised name posters, affirmation stickers and more. All the products are 100% eco-friendly and printed with soy ink, safe for the littlest of hands. Individual children’s books are $17, and the holiday bundles (three books in one) are $45.
