It’s been a while since I posted any new Twenty ten Child Themes on this site. I’ve been bookmarking them as I find them and one reader mentioned his own child theme in a comment so I thought I should get to work and post them.
First we have a Tumblr style child theme called Salju. I’ve played around with this theme and it’s really cool how it works. I’ve seen themes that require the use of woothemes tumblr plugin, this theme creates posts the same way, but without the use of a plugin. It has a nice background image and a snow effect built in, by WPCharity.com You can download it from their site Here – Salju Theme.

Next is a new type of theme called Centipede, it requires the use of the feedwordpress plugin to draw feeds in from your own social sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Google, WordPress.com and creates a tumble style layout with color coded posts for each social feed post. Be sure to check it out.
