In a world overrun with mass-produced toys, well-crafted goods make a really special gift. We love products that have a clean, simple design and are made with high-quality, durable materials. A couple of our favorites shown below:
Wooden Cars from Candylab: Made from solid Beech Wood, water based paint and featuring a clear urethane coat and food-grade rubber tires (because we know they'll end up in your toddlers mouth). We've got the Pioneer (adventure-mobile complete with magnetic canoe on top), the Blu 74 (the sleek racer) and the Police Cruiser.
Grimm's is a family owned company from Germany which develops, manufactures and sells wooden toys worldwide. We love Grimm's for their commitment to producing natural and sustainable wooden toys whose whose simple and reduced design make them look great in your home (even when strewn across your living room floor).
Wee Gallery is run by husband-wife duo Surya and Dave. They create high-contrast visual products featuring patterns and designs that help to promote infant brain development. Seen here is their Forest Friends Nesting Dolls (hand painted in a village in Russia) and their Art Cards for Baby.
