I am often asked where the toys that we have come from, and so I thought that I would put together a little list of shops that I really like. I plan on adding to this post if I think of anything else.
The Wooden Wagon
Our favorite purchases from here include Ostheimer figures, wooden swords and shields, and knitting forks
Many of our nature toys come from this shop. The children really like their bug house, window birdfeeder, potholder loom, and plant press
Several of our amber necklaces were purchased through Nova. I also spent a little birthday money to buy seasonal and fairytale postcards to display a few years ago. The most recent thing that we've gotten from this site is a crossbow for our daughter's birthday (she requested the crossbow and an apron, which I think is so cute!) and it is a huge hit!
We have a few sets of knitted play food that we bought after the paint on some wooden food we had started to chip and peel
I also use Amazon quite a bit and we are fortunate to have a local toy store that we really like. In addition, I have gotten many of our toys gently used.
Here are a few other posts that I have written on the subject of toys:
