Spring is in the air...

Spring hats are starting to arrive... Loopy 4 Ewe Crocheted Flower Beanies came last week in fabulous spring and easter colours - check them out:

We also have 2 more huge shipments of summer hats from 2 other brands due to arrive this week or next.

Skuut Balance Bike: 1. What does Skuut mean?
n. An attractive wooden bike without pedals for young children.
v. To push forward and glide with glee on aforementioned wooden bike.
2. How do you pronounce Skuut? Skuut rhymes with hoot, toot and boot. Use it as in "It's a hoot to Skuut!"
3. How do you Skuut? It is amazingly intuitive. Sitting on the Skuut, kids first walk the bike forward. As they go faster they stride with feet off the ground for longer and longer periods of time, ultimately being able to pull both feet off the ground and coast. At first they tilt to one side or the other and their feet catch them like training wheels or a tripod would. Very quickly balance becomes second nature and they can coast for yards with their feet off the ground. Braking is done Fred Flintstone style: just put your feet down and stop. Recommended for children ages 2 - 5.

Trucks trucks and more trucks

Did you know that our Fagus Trucks are made in Germany, in a factory for persons with disabilities? The name is derived from the latin word for Beechwood, from which all the toys are made. The toys are interlocked, dowelled and glued together to eliminate the use of nails, screws and staples. One of our favorites is the Unimog Truck coupled with the Crane extension. Other extensions are available, including snow plow and street sweeper.

The Unimog Truck and it's extensions are sold separately.

Modelling beeswax for little hands

Looking for something to do? Introducing Stockmar Modelling Beeswax. Experiencing art through all the senses - this is
what children achieve with Stockmar Modelling
Beeswax. With its pleasant beeswax scent and
perfectly clean handling, it is an ideal material for
modelling. Scent, colour and consistency work together
when... moulding. The warmth of the hands
melts the wax and makes it malleable and when
the wax hardens, the luminosity and fine brilliance
remain. The little works of art maintain their
beauty and charm and can be reshaped again and
again. The high pedagogical and artistic quality
makes Stockmar Modelling Bees Wax unique and
unmatched. Stockmar Modelling Bees Wax comes
in 15 luminous colours based on Goethe's "Theory
of Colours".

$15.99 for the kit of 6 colours and $28.99 for the kit of 12.

Made in Germany
