HOBBIT WEEK: Teach your children Elvish


If you are really being a great parent, you will impress upon your children the need to learn Elvish. Not only will they be prepared to watch The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit without subtitles, but when the Inner Earth inhabitants decide to come to the surface, your kids will be instantly employable as translators. Fortunately, you don’t have to slog through thousands of pages, you simply need to grab the Elvish ABC Animals print collection.

A is for Aras (deer), B is for BrĂ´g (bear), and C is for Cabor (frog) in Sindarin Elvish – the language created by J.R.R. Tolkien for his books, including the Lord of the Rings. This is perfect for a nursery!

This is so cool, and would have been the perfect bedroom decoration when The Sidekick arrived in the world a few years ago. We made the choice to decorate his room with a Batman motif complete with bloodstained pearls, and creepy butler standing in the corner…

The Elvish ABC’s are only $20.00 from Etsy.
