Alexandra “Alix” Tyler and Leslie “Dottie” Van Every are the co-editors of Modern Kiddo, a popular children’s style blog and a resource for all things vintage. A favorite amongst stylish parents, Modern Kiddo offers up a fun collection of vintage and retro-inspired fashion, toys, décor, design and more. These two cheeky San Francisco mamas firmly believe that vintage can be a fun and playful way to bring the best of your past to your kiddo’s present.    

Our love of vintage began with clothing. Alix has been selling and collecting vintage for years, and Dottie has an amazing collection of handbags. As we both got older and eventually had little ones, we began to really discover the fantastic world of vintage children’s goodies. The colors, textiles and designs are so wonderfully playful! We started Modern Kiddo to explore how our favorite things from past eras could live comfortably (and stylishly!) in the modern world. In addition to being Etsy addicts, we are both voracious readers and thought it would be fun to look to some classic children’s books as our Etsy inspiration. Enjoy!    

Heidi by Johanna Spyri

GC_modernkiddo_1.jpg

1. Storybook Nursery Lamp from OopseeDaisies. We love the storybook motifs of Irmi lamps. And as if a little girl knitting in a rocking chair wasn’t cute enough, they upped the ante with a guitar-playing little boy — and a sleeping kitty. 
2. The Ultimate Heidi Dress from Revolving Styles. These sweet little dresses were very popular in the fifties, but we think they would look adorable with some sneaks (and braids!) on today’s lil moppet.
3. Vintage Heidi book from Star Mango. Who doesn’t love this classic tale about a little Swiss Miss who charmed her grouchy ol’ grandfather living in the Alps? This illustrated version is especially sweet.
4. Widdle Felt Goat by Halushka. You know you just want to kiss that little felted nose, don’t you?   
5. Vintage Ledherhosen from JuniperLodge. Any little dude rocking these on the playground is going to have a gaggle of girlies following him around begging to be his Heidi.  
6. German Sillhouette Papercut from Schaufensterbabe. This gorgeous paper-cut would be a perfect addition to any little girl’s room.

This Is London by M. Sasek 

fs_moddernkiddo_2.jpg

1. Instant Tea Party Collection from sushipotparts. These colorful tin cups have us craving little cucumber sammies in a big way.
2. This is London book from Vintageworks. The illustrations in M. Sasek ‘s series are outstanding, but the London edition is particularly terrific.
3. Vintage Double Decker Bus Pencil Sharpener from tackysouvenirs. Scored on a 1977 trip to London, this is a cute way to make homework a jolly good time!
4. Mod 60’s Style Dress by faithworks4u. Holy hully gully, this sweet mini is perfect for your little go-go girlie!
5. Vintage Beefeater Snoopy from PortugueseVintage. There just isn’t anything cuter than Snoopy, and this little palace guard totally stole our hearts. 
6. Double Decker Bus Fabric from bloomerie
7. Handmade Target Pillow from KarenHiltonDesigns. This graphic, mod pillow would look fab on any kiddo’s bed. 

Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder

GC_modernkiddo_2.jpg

1. The Little House Dress by vestitiperduti. This sweet dress is a terrific modern take on the prairie dress, and it has enough style to make Nellie Olson screw her face up and pout in jealousy.
2. Felt Horse Pattern by woolhalla. Get in touch with your inner Ma and make your little kiddos this fab felt horse!
3. Felt Campfire by Neafus. Throw another log on the felt fire for those long, make-believe winter nights on the faux prairie
4. Vintage Little House on the Prairie Book from hanginaround. Just like the dog-eared, much loved copy you read as a kid.
5. Little House Peg Dolls from maidsinarow . Now you can reenact your favorite scenes from Little House with this great peg family. Dibs on Laura!
6. Wooden Covered Wagon Toy by willowbaus. Couldn’t you just see Carrie and Mary fighting over who gets to play with this wonderful wooden toy?

Nate the Great by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat 

GC_Moddernkiddo_3.jpg

1. Antique Ledger Books from Joana. Because every ace detective needs a journal or two.
2. Vintage Hardbound Journal by RecycledReads. Our favorite mystery book re-imagined as a clever notebook!
3. Vintage Sherlock Hound from dahiliafound. This playful pup has loads of moxie and is perfect for sniffing out clues.
4. Incognito Mustache Dress by TeenyBunny. Avoid recognition (and dodge chores!) with this clever little dressie.
5. Vintage 1963 Clue Board Game from belleocchio. With amazing mid-century illustrations, this version lets you find Professor Plum, in the library, with the candlestick — in style.
6. Inspector Grizzly Bear Print by berkleyillustration. Aw, animals in hats. Need we say more?

Thanks, Alix and Dottie!

    I love this post! Children's clothing and toys are some of the best vintage finds, but I have no use for them. I hope to someday have a child that will have excellent taste. Also, I found a very "modern" dollhouse on a blog somewhere in the past and reposted it on my blog. http://emwidesign.blogspot.com/2010/10/dollhouse-for-modern-children.html Yet another opportunity for children to be stylish.

    Adorable! One of my favorite memories is of my mom reading "Heidi" to me as a young child. My mom has Alzheimer's now and I purchased the Shirley Temple DVD of "Heidi" for and it's one of the few things that still makes her smile. I'd like to think she remembers that special time, too.

    How cute! Love the 60's dress! I think we had vintage (although it wasnt vintage then) and we turned out pretty ok. Now every toy talks and lights and all bells and whistles. Nothing stirrs up a child's imagination like a simple wooden train or rag doll.

    Great trip down memory lane - read all those to my daughters when we lived in Canada. The youngest, has just got one of these e-readers, and is reading them all over again! Loved the felt horse - used to make a lot like him, until I became a furry fan.

    Great article. I think kids need the simplicity of these type toys. I made a magnetic fishing game based on a toy I had as a child, and it was very well received. My favorite vintage toy though would have to be the old "Viewmaster"!

    I love this! Can't wait for a minute to dive into this and soak up some great ideas from past eras. I love the retro fun of the London mod theme- so so cute! Thank you Alix and Dottie- you are my kind of girls!

    I am such a huge fan of Moddern Kiddo. One of my dreams is for Wolfie to wear one of my shirts one day. :) Great collection Alix and Dottie. My day job is as a Children's Book Publicist so it is especially inspiring for me. Little House on the Prairie, Nate the Great and Heidi were three of my favorite books growing up and could have quite possibly contributed to me working in the field I work in today. I haven't read This Is London but the collection is adorable!
