Kiet’s love for Panda bears


I often talk about my oldest son's love for dinosaurs, well I have another son, baby Kiet (2yrs now) and he is crazy about panda bears. It's total mystery for me why a child can be attracted to something so specific…it's not bears in general he likes, no he likes panda bears! 🙂


This morning when i saw a great card over at poppytalk from joie studio with this panda bear i thought let's find some other panda cuteness online… soon i discovered the work by Katie Viggers… and stopped searching for more panda's.

Boy am I happy I ran into her… she is one of those illustrators that immediately capture me and looking at her website I soon discovered she has illustrated some fantastic books, one of them is actually about panda bears, but i love this book: 'almost an animal alphabeth' even more.


Katie have just set up her company eightbear, where you can buy her picture book, calenders, cards, prints and the bear mug and soon this World Map is available too…and I'm going to buy that is for sure! love love love it, you too?

    This book is great!!! Thank you for link!
    I have also two boys (4,5y and 6 month)
    The older like letters a lot, so maybe the english alphabet will be nice for him ? ( he has a dutch at school and polish at home – and he want to lern 100 languages 😉

    My 3.5 year old has been a panda lover since 4months old. Her original panda toy is no longer white and black – more beige and blue black and likes to go for “swims in the washing machine” and go on adventures without us. She has about 5 other panda toys, but nothing quite matches the original guy who came with a WWF panda sponsorship kit.

    wat een heerlijke foto’s van Kiet! zo leuk om een andere peuter en ook nog een jongen te zien die exact de leeftijd heeft van mijn dochter 😉 too cute!
    grappig dat hij zo van Panda beren houdt, Marli Anne heeft het met koeien, niet zo gek in NL zou je zeggen, maar wij wonen in het bos tussen everzwijnen en herten en koeien zijn we niet zo veel, dus….
    geweldig mooie illustraties ook, ga snel even kijken.

    It’s not the Panda bear that’s cute, the kid is the one wearing millions of reason for me to smile. He’s hundred and one percent cute!

    He’s sooo cute! When my oldest was 2.5 we took him to Epcot in Disney World and the only thing he wanted us to buy for him the entire day was a stuffed panda from “China.” It was a favorite for a long time.

    The prints are fab too.
