NGV Design Store: Gift Ideas for Kids

by EricaL (follow)
From the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) to the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), the Immigration Museum to Scienceworks, Melbourne Zoo to Sea Life Aquarium, there's so a lot to learn about in Victoria's capital city.

When visiting one of the many educational centres in Melbourne, do you stop by the gift shop on the way out? Sometimes it's not that easy to avoid because gift shops are cleverly positioned to walk through on exit.

Maybe that's not such a bad thing when there's gifts for loved ones to buy for? You might be surprised at what you find from a tourist attraction's gift store.

The Melbourne Crochet Club meets on a regular basis to learn crochet, meet other local mums, and to have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along.
Do you want to learn how to knit? Or have recently started and would like to meet some new friends to share your creativity with, all while having a good chat? Melbourne Knitting Club has classes for you.
Take a visit to the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) on St Kilda Road and you simply must stop by the store before you exit. Right now, you'll notice a collection of colourful and creative goodies for sale. In particular, a gorgeous selection of things for children.



Here are a couple of stand outs that you might find worthy of a buy for your family members or friends, particularly with Christmas just around the corner:

These colourful little buddies are exclusive to the NGV design store and Spacecraft.

Hello, Melbourne! Book by Meagan McKean

This gorgeous children's book comes with a matching tote bag (bought separately) and is, as you've probably guessed, all about Melbourne.

Hello, Melbourne!


Hello, Melbourne! is a colourful book by designer and illustrator, Megan McKean.

"Six cheeky (and hungry) magpies set out early in the morning to explore Melbourne and stop in 14 of their favourite places for food, fun, shopping, culture and sport. Join them in colourful laneways and bustling shopping arcades, in the bookish wonders of the State Library and among the sights and smells of world famous Lygon Street. By the end of the day, you’ll feel like a true Melburnian."

A perfect book for those children who are either new to the city, love in another corner of the world, or simply love all things Melbourne.

Wexbaby T-Shirts for Kids

There's currently a sweet little collection of kids tees in the NGV Store designed by Wexbaby to take part in an initiative to encourage children and adults alike to take more of an interest in languages.

NGV Wexbaby T-shirt


As well as this "L'artist" design, there's also "Oui Oui" and "Sacre Bleu".

T-shirts come in three sizes – 1-2 years, 3-4 years and 5-6 years.

Remember that entry into the NGV International is free, so you don't need to pay to enter the shop here. Alternatively, shop online and have your goodies delivered to your door.
