We're kid-crazy for woodland animals (did you check out our fox finds last week?), including the cute, if not so cuddly, raccoon. We tracked down a dozen toys, tees, and nursery decor items from Etsy, Minted, Mini Boden, and more, all featuring our favorite little bandit. Whether you want to dress up your newborn in an adorable raccoon hat and cocoon or add the coolest puzzle block, designed by Crowded Teeth, to your child's toy collection, you're guaranteed to fall for one of these 'coons!

In spirit of Earth Day, I thought we'd tackle a problem with wild animals. Sonoma b is having a big problem with some masked creatures. The very hungry raccoons seem determined to make a mess of her garbage. It's a company-issued, heavy-duty blue industrial plastic "can" filled with plastic kitchen bags. Even though it's emptied once a week, the pesky critters seem to find their way in before then! To hear what she has to say, read more
