Today might be the hardest day to make a post! Day after Thanksgiving… food coma… movie coma (yes, I saw a movie – in the theaters – today!)… family coma… nothing really to write about!
So since it’s Black Friday, I’m going to share my favorite toy stores for kids. I love looking through all these guides and stores and finding imaginative toys that really engage kids.
- Mothering.com has a wonderful Best Natural Toy Guide
- TSH at SimpleMom gave a great list of classic toys that are worth the money as well as 11 cheap (and free!) toys for young children
- Beth at Living Life Intentionally just shared a BIG Christmas Idea List that’s well worth checking out. A lot of our favorite toys are on her list, too.
- If you are a Crafty Mom, or even if you just want to dabble, Prudent Baby has a plethora of do-it-yourself toy tutorials, like ones for cute Crinkle-bots, Crayon Aprons or a Portable Tea Party.
Here are my favorite online toy stores to browse:
- Magic Cabin
- Growing Tree Toys
- One Step Ahead
- For Small Hands
- Polka Dot Patch
- Discovery Toys Inc
- Making Science Fun!
And no matter what the toy, Pip has the best time playing when me, daddy or her aunts/uncles/grands play with her. :)
