Summer is almost upon us, and what better way to celebrate than to pick out some of our favourite feathered flamingo friends? Flamingos are a big hit this season, and it’s no surprise why… From soft pink to bright salmon, flamingos are well on the way to making pink cool again!

Take a look at our top ten:

1. ‘Fiona Flamingo’ by Foxella and Friends (pictured above).

Is she a toy, or a cushion? Well, Fiona Flamingo is both! She will brighten up the bed, the sofa or the chair, and will happily cuddle your little one to sleep come bed time. She is handmade with love and care in Germany, meaning each one is totally unique and special.

2. Flamingo & Toucan Single Duvet Set by Panda & Ping (above)

Made from soft jersey cotton, this beautiful bedding is the creation of British brand Panda & Ping. Printed all over with bright flamingos and tropical toucans, it is sure to bring a splash of summer magic to your child’s room (and it comes in pyjamas too!)

3. Flamingo Garland and 4. Flamingo Decoration, both available at Bobby Rabbit (below)

This wooden laser-cut garland is hand-painted in Germany by Foxella and Friends and available at Bobby Rabbit. The garland features five flamingos that will happily hang from the shelf, the mantelpiece or on the wall, whilst the handmade salmon pink flamingo from France is a fun accessory for the bed or the shelf:
