Rainy days, back to school and bored?
BUBBLEGUM is the best thing to get your boys.

REAL GOOD GUM is the one we prefer,
because it’s organic and gluten free.
But they need some crowdfunding help before they can sell it to us.
We love the package already!

Hopefully it will be on the market soon,
so we can chew BIG (organic) BUBBLES
and have GREAT FUN!

And isn’t this the coolest picture of cool boys everrrrrr?
Thank you Mister Depardon!
Check out THE COOLEST EVERRRRR for more cool-dudes-ness.

Mister J.  is starring in a play called
“Robin Hood: men in tights”.
We love his cool striped colourblocking tights
and his too small hoodie…
Makes him sweety,
very contemporary,
Robin, haha!

Uk-based cool brand Little Titans
designs these funny and stylish tights,
yehhh… JUST FOR BOYS!
And how much we LOVE that!

The little dudes can ‘rise and shine’
as a soccer-player,
superman or just being very cool
in stripes with knitted kneepads and
very warm and double layered socks with anti-slip…
ALL-IN-ONE!

Get your ‘Robin’ at least one cool version!
…but we bet you want them all!

No lost socks anymore,
just warm and cool legs including warm feet.
With TITANS they can PLAY ALL DAY!

Yabadabadooooooo!!!!!

Two months ago we’ve posted already
about this really cool NEW kidsbrand from Antwerp/Belgium.
LION OF LEISURE
Cool wildlife tees, dito totebags and cool softies.
Very humourous in style…

We were very lucky to receive a ‘we love it’-package’ of their designs,
so we could really experience wearing it.
The tees are very soft and stay that way after washing them,
which is amazing!

We have to admit that it’s still pretty exceptional,
to have your kids tees
in the same quality as before washing it.
More brands should pay attention to that…

Lion of Leisure does…
also…
Their mission is to create a children’s clothing brand
that is unique, that has it’s own humorous identity
and inspires the very people who inspire us – KIDS.

Sssstttt… don’t tell…
We had a glimpse of an amazing new print, which is a big secret ofcourse…
But we can tell you… that one will be a big WANNAHAVE!

If you’re a professional you can meet them at the kids fair
DE KLEINE FABRIEK in Amsterdam this weekend.
Or you can just follow them. Here are ways to get their designs yourself.

p.s. All their designs are eco-friendly-certified too!
So no more excuses, haha!
+ handprinted, piece by piece…
+ more inspiration for:  tees, totebags or cool softies

Cool softies

TCH_Lion_of_Leisure

TCH_Lion_of_Leisure_lion

Last week we’ve bumped into a great new brand
LION OF LEISURE
from an English/Dutch designers-couple
from Antwerp/Belgium.
All their designs are handprinted.

First of all we like the idea of handprinting.
It makes it unique.
Their strong ethical point of view is
a big plus and makes it even better.
but…
Ssssttt… we think it’s very important
that it’s very contemporary cool too!

We think the designers
are experienced
in ‘being cool’.

Their
VERY COOL SOFTIES
are the ones who caught our eye first!
We would love them on our couch, in our bed
or just exhibited in our home.

Besides these softies they also design very cool tees in
beautiful 100% organic cotton
and create tote bags in the same print.
All with a humourous layer.

Personally we love the birds…
SO FUNNY!

TCH_the_fableists_launch

The Fableists, their official launch is today!
Oct.29, 2013
The Fableists (fay-buh-list) noun, pl.

Beautiful dark organic denim
Limited edition art tees, with cool passport… handwritten 1/500
Vintage inspired, classic already!

Buy less wear more…
Doesn’t sound very commercial. Which we really like!
Then we know we have to deal with a story, a mission.

And they do have a big mission.
It started with the idea that they want to break the cycle of kids making clothes for kids.
But it became more … The very coolest of clobber
that is sustainable, ethical and built to last.
All about respect!

What we really admire about this new very cool brand is that
you can buy an organic eco-friendly item… which first of all is just very cool
and make your child look the hippest kid in town.
Second of all you can pass them on, because it’s made very well
and is completely sustainable.
And third, it’s for boys and girls… So you can pass it on to your cool little sista…
Or cool lil’ brotha!

Biggest plus! No treads about seasons!
You can wear this the whole year round!
Something that is our vision too!

Baseball shirt and Breton is one everybody wants to have in their closet right?
They have it. Classic!
But what about these limited edition tees, with a passport?
From cool artists Anthony Peters, Crispin Finn,
Gregori Saavedra & Sami Viljanto
And then the denim… We love denim you see…

The thing is, this very cool new kidsbrand fits us like a glove.
PERFECTLY ‘THECOOLHEADS-WISE’!

Be fast, we guess there won’t be a lot of the limited edition tees left, soon!
The other designs will be available we assume,
Because they’re CLASSIC already!

Big thanks to the Fableists-crew
for being so inspiring and creative!

HAPPY LAUNCH DAY !!!

p.s. We were VERY VERY LUCKY to have won
13 limited edition tees in their competition… Plus the first of the first everrr…
We were fans already, but this made us dancing! Haha…

Surfing for a better future!

TCH_SSPH_Prema

Equal chances for all the children living on our planet.
How amazing that would be…
Unfortunately that’s not the case…

Indonesian Island Bali is a very popular holiday destination.
Great food, beautiful culture and landscapes
and the big ocean.
But the other side of this ‘fairytale’ is the harsh reality.
There are so many orphans and streetkids on Bali. Really sad.
It’s about surviving and no luxury at all.
Plus the intense sad pollution on this beautiful island.

Luckily for these kids, Dutch Rodney Westerlaken,
started a great project in the summer of 2008,
which will give them much more hope & a happier perspective.

It’s called SOUL SURF PROJECT BALI.

In 2007 he was a volunteer at an orphanage.
But after he found out that the owner spend all his donated money to herself,
he decided to make sure only the kids would benefit from donations.
The only thing he could do was to start a project himself
to make sure it was all about the future of the kids.
Not the greedy ‘so called support’.

Before he helped out at the orphanage, he always went surfing.
So he arrived with wet hair and his surfboard.
The kids were curious about that, because they didn’t understand…,
So he decided to organize a big surfing-class for them together with Ripcurl.
+ besides that, the kids threw away their garbarge and not in waste-bins they brought.
There was no awareness at all!
So he thought 1+1=2

TCH_SSPB.2

TCH_SSPB_smile

Soul Surf Project Bali;
“With surfing we have a method which is helping us to protect the coast and its 
environment!
Surfing will be given as a reward for 
growing awareness and knowledge and a new attitude.
While surfing, the kids are in the elements of mother nature,
by being in those elements they will learn to appreciate it!”

We, the Cool Heads, would really like to support this project,
because they TEACH!
Not only surfing and English classes, but they see
THE BIGGER PICTURE…
It’s about awareness!
For the environment on their, in original, beautiful Island.
But also about getting chances, working hard and get rewarded for that.
The kids are our future!

There are already a few SUCCES STORIES;

DANI who’s dream is to be a professional photographer.
She can work part-time for the project.
She’s not able to go to school because she’s recovering from a really heavy back surgery.
Now doing fine, so  she’s slowly getting back and can photograph a few hours.
That will make her so happy we guess…

PIKA, a physically disabled girl rescued by Bali Street Kids is now taking
swimming classeswith SSPB and becoming stronger and stronger.

PREMA (in action on the first picture) is a very enthousiastic kid
and great surfer already.
He’s helping out in the eco-surfshop, and with surfing lessons,
creates new eco-products for the shop and will have an internship at Ripcurl.
What an amazing story!
The program will also make sure he will get his lifesaving- and surfteacher degree
and after two years it’s possible to get a microcredit to built up his own business.

All this is possible now because of the human and brilliant thinking of Rodney
when he started this and his cool (volunteer) crew
for making it work for already 5 years!
Plus support from the pro’s like Mick Fanning, Gabriel Medina,
Bethany Hamilton is a big help too.
Ripcurl and SSPB are joining forces, launched in August,
in an exclusive sponsorship for one year.

IMG_4769-22_06_2013-Federico-Vanno-Liquid-Barrel-400x600

But they really need much more  funds or donations to make it possible
to teach much more kids.
So, SUPPORT THIS GREAT PROJECT!
To make a better future for kids like Prema, Dani and Pika!
They already showed their strength and courage!
These kids are the future. With this project it looks like a bright future.

Possibilities enough to support. By donate wax or a bin bag by sms…
or support the possibility of a van…
They really need that ‘biggie expense’ to go on fieldtrips, to educate about the environment…
A second Balsawood surfboard for the talentclass is very much needed.
And you can shop in the first ECO SURF SHOP. How cool is that!
But you can also take surflessons at their surfschool when you’re on holiday at Bali.
That’s support too!

They are the first and only surfschool who will give back
your payment for your surfinglessons
straight to the programs for the orphans and streetkids of Bali.
Amazing!

TCH_SSPH

What we also like about this project in particular is that
it’s very contemporary. I mean the website, the daily updates.
They’re very transparent on social media. You can follow everything.
Through the 1% club  you can also donate by time, knowledge and money.
VERY COOL!

Make a difference!
Support our future!
Many thanks!

Green is also a color!

When we hear or read the word GREEN, we immediately think about sustainability,
recycling and being very kind to our beautiful planet!
Which is really great!  The first thing we think about…
It should be…

But… GREEN is also a COLOR…

TCH_green_J.1

A beautiful one… In so many different shades.
it’s dazzling…
We love all sorts of green colors together…

So we’ve made you some inspiration on pinterest.
Green boys style!

And if we only use eco-friendly products,
then GREEN will be more then just
a beautiful color!
