Although we've outgrown most of our habits from our tender years – we’ve moved on from classic Lego to their next level iterations from CHANEL designed by Karl and Laetitia Crahay and from lunch-time Ring Pops to dainty rings. We also never really fully outgrew crowding our pads with some fantastical figurines and made-for-a-toddler toys, although we did move past that whole notion that they come to life when we leave the room. Our Cov alums fully get our addiction, though. They’ve been known to deck their spaces with Kidrobot collectibles, Pez dispensers (see: Julie Albert), sci-fi robots (remember Lauren Santo Domingo’s?) and even the 90s classic Trolls. Some of our faves? A stuffed toy Karl we spied at Leigh Lezark's abode, Ben Baller, Leanne Citrone and Tabitha Simmons's KAWS collectibles (for the “kidult” in all of us) and Stacy London's bejeweled dinos are just a few gems that have earned their owners perma-status on our playdate e-vites.
Turning their homes into FAO Schwarz is a resounding theme amongst all. "You don’t want to know how long I spent putting these together and arranging the products," gushed Jen Kao, whose assortment of toys would leave a fourth grader feeling inferior about his extensive Pokémon collection. And although many a Coveteur have their own children, we have a feeling their trips to the toy store aren't all that altruistic. "My son has an obsession with Kidrobot," Hedi Gores confessed, "and I've been known to buy a few for myself, too." Our own hometown guilty pleasure? Toronto's very own Magic Pony, which has just about every type of toy to deck out your cribs—see what we did there?
