I'm obsessing over wooden toys lately. I'm such a sucker for all of the expensive, bright toys that light up and make horrible noises. I feel like since they draw a child's attention, they must be great. No, they are just bright and loud so naturally a baby will be drawn to them. But what if we just didn't have them to start with? I would love to switch over to only buying vintage, wood and eco friendly toys for Magnolia. At least for the first few years. I have seen all kinds of cute toys and ideas for for things to make her myself. etsy.com is a great resource for all of these toy ideas. Here are a few things I've found that I'm loving from etsy.
|Armadillo Dreams has a lot of adorable wooden toys, from this cute |
little farm set to natural wooden teething toys.
|BeneathTheRowanTree has a sweet collection of teeny tiny wooden toys including |
