The weather has started to really changed now, we’ve hit that frustrating time of the year when it’s freezing cold in the morning and then hot in the afternoon. Either that or it’s raining all day and miserable. It’s also known as cold season because one minute your bundled up, the next your sweating and then you get cold again. Did you know that Doctors call October/November dying season?! Morbid I know, but it’s because of all the colds during September and early October that then develop in the old and frail into pneumonia. Anyway, I’m way off track.
Last week I was sent some wonderful tissues from a new brand called Atissu who make super soft tissues for kids. The reason they are different is their adorable boxes are designed to engage children, with several sweet animal characters that bring a smile to the face of even the snottiest child!
The brand is wonderfully British, so they totally get the way that September weather gives our children a complete snot-down, and the designs come from Sam Dumont, who is also a mama and knows how fed up parents get with the ugly tissue boxes that loiter at this time of year. Even better, all the materials for the tissues are sustainably sourced, so you don’t have to worry about your impact on the environment using them.
I have a box in Edie’s room and the boys room (which has worked really well as Toby and Edith are recovering from stinking colds) and they are just the most delightful tissues for kids.
Add a little bit of lovely to your home with atissu, even if it is to combat snotty kids!
