{Finds} Handmade Children’s Toys, a Gift List

Shopping for Christmas is in full swing!  I asked Courtney, my in house children’s product specialist, to put together a handmade gift list for little ones, and she made some really spectacular finds. There are lots of really neat toys available by Etsy artisans that are great alternatives to store-bought toys. This first group have a christmas theme; I’m especially in love with the little hand-held “I spy with my little eye” game, which also comes in non-holiday patterns.

Christmas Time Block Puzzle ~ Tiny Giraffe Shop

And a Partridge in a Pear Tree Puzzle ~ Tactile Baby

Santa’s Worksop – Wood and Felt Play Set ~ Zoobie

Mini 12 Days of Christmas- Mini I Spy Bag ~ Emmie’s Designs

Wooden toys make wonderful gifts and wonderful little stocking stuffers – some things are just timeless.

Bus Crayon Holder ~ Santa Barbara Crafts

Organic Brainbow Stacking Nesting Arches Balancing Educational Set ~ Little Sapling Toys

Wooden Mushroom Pattern Educational Game ~ The Enchanted Cupboard

These were so unique – the playmat made to look like your neighborhood, the scavenger hunt in a bag for the playground, and a felt magnetized fishing set. Love them all!

I LOVE the I-Spy! That would be super to have at the doctor's office to keep the little ones occupied and not playing with the germy office toys.
