Save on Melissa & Doug Educational Toys!

‘Round these parts, Melissa & Doug are good friends. We have their puzzles, their musical instruments, their art sets, their easel and who-knows-what-else I’ve forgotten. (Everything you see below, we actually own. And more…) Since I love Melissa & Doug and since Christmas is really just around the corner, I thought I’d share this deal […]

Radio Flyer for the 21st Century

My three-year-old twin boys are quickly leaving toddlerhood behind and becoming, well, just…boys. Sigh. While they desperately want to be “big”, their bodies haven’t quite caught up to their desires. They may want to ride the two-wheeled bikes and scooters but their time has not yet come. (Though the littlest one is doing his damnedest […]

Retro Toys

Last week’s episode of Mad Men (ohmygod, if you’re not watching this, please start…) featured a 1963 Barbie. It was this one: I wasn’t born until the ’70s but I had this Barbie growing up. My sisters and I inherited the Barbies that my mother and her sisters played with in the ’60s. We played […]


New Era Rag Dolls

When I was little, I had a beautifully handmade Raggedy Ann Doll. She had embroidered facial features and perfectly looped yarn hair on her flat, round head. She was lovely and I wish I knew where she was now. Is she at my mother’s house? Did one of my sisters steal her? Hello? Jill? Cara? […]

Today’s special showcase on Etsy was baby and children’s items. And I spied these darling little pre-walkers by evie lala from Melbourne, Australia. They’re handmade from cotton or linen with a soft corduroy sole. Perfect. And darling. $25. The sheep? Her name is Charlotte. And I just love her. (She’s $35.)

Mimi by Snoozebaby

I was browsing through Monsters & Munchkins, a British online boutique (another Twitter find) this weekend and came across this little guy. Girl? It? Whatever, it’s cute. By Dutch company Snoozebaby, this little lovie looks ridiculously soft, with all the corners, edges, legs and tags a baby or toddler could get attached to. And it’s […]

PlaySam Wooden Cars from Sweden

Patricia over at Mrs. Blandings mentioned this company in a post yesterday – she’s at a gift and accessories trade show in New York. I looked it up and fell in love. These wooden cars – one to play with and one to ride – are from PlaySam and are so very Swedish. The Roadster […]

The Busy Bible

in Other Cool Stuff,Toys

There was a two year old boy in front of us at church this morning, with this book – Busy Bible ($39). I didn’t have a great opportunity to inspect the book (it wasn’t mine and there was Mass going on…) but it sure did keep an active toddler busy and quiet. The book is […]
