Animal Coat Hooks

November 16, 2012 — 5 Comments

I’m not quite sure where the week has gone but I am really looking forward to the weekend. Sam had has Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast the other day and it was so great to see the kids dressed as Native Americans and Pilgrims. It is amazing to see the teachers work their magic. Imagine 44 kids all perfectly well behaved, singing songs and having a meal of mini muffins, popcorn and apple slices together. We need to finalize our Thanksgiving menu here and I am going to try to perfect my pumpkin pie this weekend. I am also going to see if I can finish the coat rack in time. Speaking of which, in my search for the perfect coat hook I also came across some really nice animal hooks.

Metal Animal Hooks

I am planning on interspersing a few of these metal ones on our coat rack, to keep it whimsical and inspire the kids to use it. I actually picked up a couple of brass beetle knobs on clearance at Anthropologie a couple of weeks ago. My kids love bugs, so I think they will be excited to use them.

1. Rabbit Knob, Anthropologie $12

2. Fox Knob, Anthropologie $12

3. Octopus Hooks, Urban Outfitters $14

4. Deer Hook, Urban Outfitters, $12

5. Bull Dog Hook, Urban Outfitters, $12

6. Squirrel Hook, Anthropologie, No Longer Available

I thought I would also show you some more colorful options. That I think have the right mix of fun without being too cutesy.

Colorful & Fun Animal Hooks

I really like some of these fun hooks. I think my favorite is the T-Rex head. Too bad it appears to only be available in England.

1. Yellow Giraffe Hook, Urban Outfitters $14
2. White Elephant Hook, Anthropologie, $20
3. Aqua Squirrel Hook, Land of Nod $29
4. Red Reindeer Hook, World Market, $13.98

6. T-Rex Head Hook, Dwell UK, $14.95
7. Blue Bunny Hook, The Modern Baby UK, $9.95 (also available in other colors)

Which one is your favorite?
I’ve picked out a couple of hooks for our coat rack. Can anyone guess which ones?

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. What fun! I love them all, but my favorites are the octopus (#3) and the red deer (#4)!

    For your house…bulldogs and blue bunnies???

    • Definitely bunnies! I am leaning towards the metal one. I was also thinking of getting the squirrel but it suddenly disappeared off the Anthropologie site today. errr…If I have time this weekend I was considering heading over to the store and see if they had any left.

      • I don’t think you can go wrong with any of ‘em — they’re so fun!

        The bulldog crack me up. His expression says, “You’re gonna go outside without me AGAIN??? Bummer!”

  2. FAb hooks! So much fun, and I think you’re totally on the right track to inspire the kids with them. And you know that we can totally hook you up with English merchandise if you really want the T-Rex ones. :)

    • Thanks Andi! The company who has the T-Rex actually has a whole series of dinos. If I knew that Sam would still like dinosaurs in a couple of years I think I would consider ordering them for towel hooks for the kids.
