Children of the Tribe’s stunning camping-inspired fashion shoot

children-7children-3bucket-1

I’m in love with the campaign shoot Byron Bay-based children’s fashion and lifestyle brand Children of the Tribe have done for their AW2014 collection. It’s called When Stranded and there’s some great little pieces I know my boys would love and surely there’s something there for your kiddies too, no?!

Children of the Tribe design seriously well priced clothing that captures the “innocence and wonder of childhood in its natural state, inspired by the harmonious connection of tribal children with the outdoor world around them. We create quality, timeless, stylish clothing for free-spirited little people who love to roam in the sand dunes, daydream in treetops, and run barefoot through long grass.” Love it.

I’m also kind of thinking that if these kids can camp and look fabulous, then my kids need to seriously up their game …

Enjoy the shoot, and shop the collection here.

Thrifty Thursday camping gear: Tell the Best Ever Tent-Time Stories with Projecteo!

No one seems to dedicate enough time holding a torch below their face and telling stupid stories around the campfire in order to freak kids out before sending them to sleep in a tent. What’s wrong with us these days, eh?! Maybe it’s because we’ve been hanging out for something better? Well here it is campers. Projecteo, the world’s first Kickstarter-fuelled, teeny tiny instagram projector.

 

 

 All you do is sign in with Instagram, choose nine images which are then developed onto a single frame of 35mm film which is inserted into a wheel. Then it arrives in the post and away you go! They work using little watch batteries and are so small you could easily squeeze one in alongside your now redundant spooky-story-telling-prop torch.

So here’s the plan. Come up with a story. Take some illustrative insta-pics for it. Send them through to Projecteo and you’re away. Once the kiddies are tucked into their sleeping bags, get the story started and someone in or outside the tent can flick the slideshow on and flip the pics as the story goes on. Cool, right? The kids will love it!

Or you could just show great pics from old camping trips, but you know, that’s not nearly as exciting ….
