Liam the Red Fox

This guy seems like a friendly fox, not the troublemaking kind.

Zac and Zoe Play Tents

You better believe if I had a whole room to deck out for this kid, we’d be making a tent.

The Ballparks Ball

For when you can’t come up with anything reasonably good for Dad.  And if you want to really top it, make the present hitting all these destinations together.

Browne & Co

Browne knows what they’re doing for summer fun. Check out these sailboat popsicle molds.  See also: the rocket, the robot, and the classic.

Wooden Magnets

Rain drops keep [ouch!] falling on my head.  These are made of wood, so please keep them on the refrigerator only.

I think these are built for kids, but I could still use a sewing primer, so…

Sounds like two characters in a children’s book, no?  Go get chalking.

Hello, Cutest Thing I’ve Seen All Week!

The Olfactionary

Absurd, but wonderful (especially to me, the Bloodhound).  Your very own perfumery with forty 2.5 ml bottles of natural essences — the very scents you find in your favorite brands.

No more thumb fatigue (because this one actually works).

Hall of Fame

The best old toys.  Why?  Because they’re good enough to still be around.

Playing with light and color, two of my favorite things (though if you’re getting technical I guess they’re not two separate things).
