Friday Favorites #3–Toys for My Kids, Etsykids Style

I just love how you can find anything you can think of on etsy.  Whether it be something vintage, something to wear, something to eat, a toy for your kid–someone makes it!  I love that.  This week is toys for my kids.  I am a mom who hates plastic toys, especially the stupid ones that make noise.  I had high hopes that we could have a toy box full of wooden and natural fiber toys.  With friends and family purchasing for the tater tots, though, we have a fair bit of plastic, and the noise!  Oh my god, the noise.  They are playing with the ball popper thing the hospital gave us for Otis when he got discharged on his birthday.  I hate that thing, except for the fact it keeps both kids entertained for awhile.

But I digress.  Here are some favorite toys made by fellow Etsykids Team members! (Click on photo to bring you to their shops!)

wooden tools from Armadillo Dreams


Sweet bunny from woolies
Fun matching game from applenamos
Mr. Fox from SquishyBee

Wouldn’t it be nice if all my kids’ toys were fabric and wooden and handmade?  Maybe I’ll just get rid of all the plastic crap and start all over!
