Have you got a little one in your house for whom this is their very first World Cup? A future soccer star? A football fiend? Want to deck out their room with soccer stuff, but wanting to avoid that ubiquitous soccer lamp? Here are five soccer-themed finds for your little Pele or budding Ronaldo.
1. This round up of Football wall hangers made by RS Barcelona was featured a while back on the blog Say Hi to Design. Good news, they're still available on the RS Barcelona site, starting at €29.
2. Great for filling a large, blank wall - a vintage flag. Hunt for one that supports your favorite team. Look for one with weight (not polyester), and sewn, not printed, for something classy and beautiful. This vintage Brazilian flag is on eBay right now.
3. Land of Nod has a soccer-themed baby rattle, perfect for the littlest soccer fan of all. $9.95.
4. Last season Cath Kidston made this fantastic football print fabric, available in throw pillows, kids bedding and lampshades. They no longer have it in stock, but a quick search on ebay.co.uk will pull up a whole lot of new-in-packet options.
5. A tiny indoor soccer field rug for tiny sized indoor soccer games? Yes please! From Toys R Us, $54.99.
