If you have any money left after the holidays, get ready to say goodbye to all of it: Two things you totally love as a parent — Land of Nod furnishings and Sesame Street — are joining forces to offer a home decor line that's so ridiculously cute and cheerful you won't be able to resist redecorating your little one's room, like, right now. We're talking the stuff of your childhood dreams: Everything from beanbag chairs to bedding to carpets to omg, so much more. Can you even stop yourself from buying the entire Land of Nod's Sesame Street Collection? Good luck.
Maybe it's because most of us moms grew up on Big Bird & Co., but there's just something about these pieces that make us feel like kids again. And that was pretty much the point behind the collection, as a press release from the Land of Nod explains:
"Nod and Sesame Street understand that life, especially parenting, is about embracing the small moments with kids. The Sesame Street for Nod collection encourages families to celebrate everyday moments throughout the home, from sunup to sundown.... Each piece embodies the furry fun of Sesame Street and the energetic spirit of kids, inspiring them to be everything they want to be."
Maybe that's asking a lot of kids' furniture, but when you see this stuff, you'll see what they mean. Plus, even though it's obviously designed to appeal to the preschool set, it somehow manages to be aesthetically pleasing enough for parents, too (which is a lot more than we can say for a lot of other character-driven kids' home furnishings and the like). Also including apparel, backpacks, bath time accessories, toys, sleeping bags, and more, the Sesame Street for Nod collection ranges from $8 to $499, and it's available starting January 4 at Land of Nod's website.
Still, we couldn't help giving you a few ideas to get started, so check out some of our favorite products from the newest Land Of Nod X Sesame Street collaboration.
