How fun and fresh is the use of typography in this collection of children's table linen titled "Mangeur Masque".  Designed by Cécile Gonnard for Grain de Couleur Création. (Personally, I think these make great gifts for 'big' kids too!) Cécile was also the talented designer behind the Woodblock Napkins.
