These wild and whimsical prints are top of Little Livingetc’s wish-list
New high-end kids’ lifestyle brand Wild Hearts Wonder is set to become the discerning tweenager’s go-to brand.
The out-there, imaginative animal prints range from the subtly silly to the totally bonkers; their A to Z alphabet print wallpaper is peppered with kararte kangaroos, flying bunnies, and cape-wearing beavers, while the Carousel Animal wallpaper has monkeys, wolves and leopards dancing on carousel horses.
There’s a feline fantastic Wild Cats wallpaper too, promising to win over even the hardest to please teenagers.
The patterns are not only packed with attitude, they have an underlying message too: to get off your phones and get outdoors.
Each hand-painted illustrations has a focus on nature and wildlife, designed to ignite children’s imaginations and encourage a love of the wild.
Emily Wilton-Keely, one of the founders and a mum herself, explains: “Too often today’s children are more interested in being immersed in technology and have forgotten the fun of the great outdoors. We wanted to create a brand that encourages creative thinking and play, and, importantly, encourages children to get outside again.” Too right.
With its ethics in all the right places, its thoughtful and imaginative animal prints might just inspire the next generation to save the world.
