• I first met Dutch journalist and all-round nice gal Flore de Vries yonks ago when she had just made her home in Cape Town. Fast forward a wee bit and we both had babes in arms. A little further down the line, and Flore and I were chatting about her ingenious and fun little cardboard book, My First Cape Town Words. From ‘bakkie’ and ‘dassie’ to ‘braai’ and ‘train’ I loved the way she visually connected single words with iconic Cape Town imagery and landmarks in a colourful, robust and perfect-for-little-hands format. Since then Flore has been prolific, creating and growing her kids product range under the Pictures & Words label. There’s a puzzle and a memory game, colouring in and activity books and postcards and another word book, this time Jozi-inspired.

    It’s just such a clever little range she’s developing, with humorous moments and a graphic, fun design signature that all adds up to the ideal addition to your children’s playing and learning repertoire: perfect for local kids to grow their knowledge and take pride in our landscape, as well as, of course, making great gifts for ex-pats and family and friends living abroad. The range also includes gorgeous Shweshwe notebooks for young doodlers or note taking and sketching for work or inspiration. All Flore’s products are proudly locally designed and hand-finished and are available at select book shops, or contact her for your nearest stockist.

      We would love a South African floor puzzle!! What lovely things, have liked the FB page.

      I Love East London BECAUSE here you can really relax, take a bit of time out, to do outdoor pursuits even if that means lying in the sun or surfing. But there is just enough mall and movies to keep everybody happy too! The floor puzzle is GORGEOUS!!! Liked both Facebook pages and I have shared this giveaway on Twitter (@flutterbymegs). Fingers crossed.

      Love the floor puzzle. Cape Town has everything I love to do…beaches, wine farms, stunning hikes and many more awesome outdoor things. So spoilt here.

      Love living in South Africa – we definitely have one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in the world! Would love the floor puzzle for my three year old girl – but all the products are absolutely gorgeous!

      I would love to win the floor puzzles. I love Cape Town. I was surprised by some of the things I encountered in the great coastal city of Cape Town.
      Yes, Table Mountain is stunning and a treat to see every day, but there’s much more to the beauty of the area. The ocean, the city skyline, the waterfront area and the Mother City’s people are all beautiful in very different ways. This beauty can’t be contained though, it spills out into the nearby towns and communities from Hout Bay to Cape Point; the entire Cape area suffers from an incredible embarrassment of riches.

      I live in a little rural town in KZN and just love my province and country. The green rolling hills, amazing skies and friendly people. Best place on earth! I’d most like to win the memory cards or floor puzzle. Thank you! Liked the FB page and commented :-)

      I love Jozi, because it is the city of gold, it is the land of opportunity and it keeps me on my toes, helps me to never become complacent. It has wonderful sites, it is rich in heritage and it is my city of birth.

    11. Anita Steenkamp on

      We would love the floor Puzzle but my little one wants everything you showed on this post 😉 We are lucky we live in Middelburg Mpumalanga and we are near some fabulous places and gorgeous scenery! Which is just great

      Nothing like a family world scrabble with this inspiring & truly South African activities

    13. Ailsa Jean Porter on

      I would love the My Big South Africa Puzzle for my 4 year old granddaughter. I love the river in Vanderbijlpark – great to sit and watch all the boats going by.
