Plan Toys Window Contest

Aug 30, 2012

We won! We won! And, we couldn't be more excited about it!


Thanks to our sweet Erin for spending her time and creativity on this project. We'll have a bit of extra Plan inventory for the holiday season this year - which will help our tiny store and Santa. 


This contest/sweepstakes took place on Facebook, so if you want to see our FB activity remember to "like" us. We are getting ready to do a giveaway and a photo contest!

A rainbow of LunchBot love. We've got your lunch needs covered, eco-friendly style. 






We have a rainbow of lunch love in our front window. If you're packing a cold school lunch for your little loves why not make it colorful? We'd also like to share one of our favorite lunch blogs, Made Your Lunch, in case you are in need of some inspiration.  

Nino Percussion Instruments

Aug 18, 2012


We got all kinds of exciting new noisemakers with our recent order from Nino.  Check out this Wood Stirring Drum.  The eight wooden tongues produce different pitches when they are struck separately, like playing a xylophone. By stirring in the drum with the included beater a scale can be played.  Come in and give it a whirl!

Little owl blanket buddies

Just in!  We currently have two of these sweet little Kathe Kruse dolls in stock, and they definitely won't be sticking around long. 

New Ergos!

Aug 16, 2012

Holy mud we just got a load of the cutest Ergo Baby Carriers ever, including Petunia Pickle Bottom styles. 


This Ergo is $160 and we have ONE in well as one of these...


and ONE of these.


We have many other styles available in both organic and cotton canvas from $115-$145. Infant inserts are restocked as well as other accessories. Come check our selection or call to have us hold yours before it walks out the door.


Bundles are also available. A bundle is an Ergo and an infant insert - quite possibly the best baby shower gift ever!


We even have the options packages available which is a great way to get an inexpensive Ergo that likes a new identity every now and then. These are only available for a limited time.

These beauties are only $99. That means you get an Ergo Baby Carrier with 3 cute attachments for less than the price of an Ergo without cuteness engulfing it. We ordered these especially for you, so you can carry your baby or toddler with style, who doesn't want that?

Klean Kanteen

Aug 10, 2012

Back to School is sneaking up on us. Do you have a Klean Kanteen or an eco-friendly lunch box?


We have a rainbow of them in our front window. Swing by and see them and our Lunchbots

Watermelon & Toys

Aug 07, 2012

We went to OSFF and got a big fat watermelon to feed 5 butterflies. Super not necessary, so if you are passing by, stop in for some watermelon!



Just enjoying some watermelon and spinning tops. We still have our tree up from our Christmas in July class - and the butterflies are pretty sure it isn't a fake one.



And the date for those of you that are following our beautiful calendar is below.


The Release

Aug 06, 2012

We've placed some flowers about and let our butterflies go in the store today.




We hope they'll live happily amongst the colors and delights in here. 




Come visit!

Feeleez is a wonderful game for helping children develop emotional literacy, the vocabulary to express their feelings, and the ability to empathize with others.  We also have Feeleez buttons!


It's all fun AND games!

Aug 04, 2012


Don't forget we have a nice selection of games to liven up your family game night!  Check out 'Expedition Dino' from HABA for starters.  

Together with Tim the dinosaur explorer, you search the traces of a prehistoric giant. Equipped with a hammer and chisel you excavate petrified bones from the rocks.

This morning Erin and Willa were here when our little store opened. We got a text when we were en route that said "We need sugar!" 

We have butterflies!

And they are beautiful.


Simon ran down to our favorite neighborhood flower shop, and bought a handful of carnations to lay about the bottom of our habitat. 


We had some lunch and concocted lunch for our butterflies. We mixed 3 teaspoons of sugar in with a cup of water and used our handy little dropper to coat our carnations with sugar water.



Tomorrow I think we'll bring some watermelon for them to enjoy. We are having a fun time watching them and we'll keep them in their habitat for a few days before we release them.


The release is planned to be in the store, so we'll have flowers amongst our toys and clothes for them to enjoy for a few weeks. Please come and visit our butterflies!



They would love to meet you!
