I've known a lot of people who have had a monkey or jungle theme for their nursery, so I'm guessing many of our readers would like the Monkey Tree Mobile. Five monkeys in different positions hang along with what looks like the top of a palm tree. It's fun and silly and really cute!

I must admit that it's taken me a while to warm up to wall decorations that stick right to the walls. Maybe it's because I still haven't decorated Andy's nursery yet with all our recent moves. I have a hard time finding ones I like enough to actually put on a wall. But I did discover the Flutterflies Decorating Kit, and I actually do like it! There are 130 butterfly decals of different sizes and colors included, and they are easy to use. Just peel and stick, and then when you are ready to take them down they come down easily without taking off the paint. It is certainly a much more inexpensive and simpler way to change the character of a room than putting up wallpaper or painting.

Are you sick of cutsie lamps for your nursery? This Baby Lamp is a little creepy, but once you get past that you'll realize its totally awesome. Nearly anatomically correct, this lamp looks just like 3 or 4 month old baby. Its a perfect nightlight or maybe just a nice accent on a bookshelf. In addition to blue, the lamp is available in orange and green.

Looking for a great baby shower gift? Well, the Welcome to the World Baby Wagon is a great choice. Available in pink and blue, it has all sorts of treasures inside perfect for parents of a new born. It includes a hooded terry cloth towel, a receiving blanket, a sleeping gown, long- and short-sleeved onsies, a bib, a burp cloth, a terry velour washcloth, a pair of booties, and a hat all in a bear theme. I'm not so sure you'll be using the wagon to pull your child around, but it will make a great place for storing toys.

Now that Andy's starting to stand, we are very interested in tracking his growth. After all, he's a huge baby and has the potential to grow like a weed! I really like the Cashmere Soft Growth Chart. It cleans easily, charts your baby from 25 to 60 inches, and is a great addition to any nursery. Each design comes with it's own unique markers, such as a carrot and flower marker for the bunny chart and a bone for the puppy chart. They can be embroidered with your child's name too!

When we moved into our house last month, one thing the sellers left were adorable chandeliers in the two smaller bedrooms. As they had three girls and we have a boy, they are not quite fitting with our decor. But they are simply amazing, and I plan on saving one in case I do ever have a girl. I just found the Olivia Chandelier, and it reminds me of one that we now own. It has five arms with flower detail on each, glass crystals, and a 36 inch hanging chain. It's also available in four colors: ivory, mocha, pink and white. I think it's just beautiful, and what little girl wouldn't love it? If you'd like shades, there are a bunch available as well.

I love this stool! I think any child would find it hilarious. I do at least! When you step or sit on the Toad Stool, it croaks! It's also very cute, I love it's eyes! This would defniitely make teeth brushing time a little more fun!

Teach your kids to save in style with this Mid-Century Piggy Bank from Pamela Barksy. Cast from an authentic mid-century mold and hand glazed, this piggy bank is straight out of the 1950s. Each bank comes with some money inside (the amount varies, so you never know what you'll get), and a rubber stopper underneath allows you to empty the bank without breaking it.

For little ones afraid of the dark, I think the Soft Night Light is a brilliant idea. The removable light is surrounded by a velor teddy bear. The light lasts for seven hours and has a wall charger. It's even machine washable! If your child needs a night light, consider one that they can also hug!

Remember the review of Sleepy Head Bunny that we recently posted? Here's a cute mobile that matches the bunny. The Bunny Musical Mobile, available in both pink and blue, plays the song "All I Have To Do Is Dream" while it rotates. The bunnies are all in different positions for variety. If you have a bunny themed nursery, this mobile would be perfect!
