Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, apologies for that- July was a busy month! However, now it’s August and I’ve got a brand new (and awesome) toy to review! Now anyone who knows me, knows I’m a self- confessed toy addict. And one of the great things about having children is that […]
I doubt there’s a parent out there who won’t admit to playing with their children’s toys – one of the many great things about having small children is the toys and getting to play with them!
(No? Just me? ;) )
Well personally I love shopping around for beautiful toys for my boys. Now I like plastic toys, I love Playmobil and Lego and B. Toys too; as well as others. However, my real love is wooden toys.
I find wooden toys so charming, I love that they’re made from natural resources, are often organic and fair trade and above all else are just beautiful to look at. I still walk past my two year old’s Grimm’s rainbow from time to time and just stop to look at it because it’s that gorgeous!
So, with this in mind, I couldn’t write a blog about natural and eco parenting without having a section dedicated to the beautiful wooden toys out there! I just can’t get enough of some of these brands.
It’s an addiction really…
Who doesn’t dream of owning their own tree house? Like somewhere, deep down inside our big adult shapes, our inner child is still waiting patiently for one. I know mine is 😉 But let’s face it, most of us aren’t lucky enough to have the money/and/or space for a life size tree house (though I […]
Hello all! I have had a lot of fun this week ‘researching’ the most beautiful brand of toys that have recently been introduced into the UK and stocked by our friends Babi Pur, and they are called Grapat. This beautiful little company is a family run business that works with and around nature and also uses […]
Recently we have been on a bit of a binge with our Grimm’s buys… is that wrong? I cant see how when Grimm’s make so many beautiful things 😉 Our favourite stockists of Grimm’s toys and other amazing ethical/sustainable kid’s products is Babi Pur. So this week, I thought I’d do a little run down of […]
Of all the beautiful brands of wooden toys I’ve had the pleasure to acquaint myself with since having children, one brand I wasn’t very familiar with was BAJO. It wasn’t until I was given a gift box of products from Babi Pur to review that discovered this beautiful brand, as one of the products in […]
When I first started my journey into Eco parenting and began researching the different brands of ethical wooden toys, one brand that kept popping up time and time again was the Holztiger range. I remember every time I saw them I didn’t pay them much attention and scrolled on, I never thought they looked like […]
As Christmas will be here in a blink of an eye (or it certainly feels that way!) I’ll be reviewing some of the beautiful wooden and organic toys and games out there to help you choose some excellent and high quality goodies for your little ones! Today I’ll be writing about the Plan Toys sort […]
This week I’ll be writing about something I’ve had on my wish list for longer than I can remember – the Grimm’s rainbow ball run assembly set! I can’t explain how excited I was to get this beautiful toy for the boys (and myself), and when it arrived I was not disappointed. This little beauty […]
With Christmas just around the corner I’ll be posting a fair few articles about some our favourite toy brands, and I’ll also be reviewing several different toys that we have had the pleasure of testing for our lovely go-to store for all things ethical and organic in children’s products, Babi pur. 🙂 If you’re stuck […]
