Wee You-Things Blocks

Wee You Things Block1928x1084_YouThings_Blocks_1024x1024

If there was an award for cutest kids building blocks, Wee Society would take it home! The Wee You-Things Blocks are a thing of beauty. I can’t wait to show them to my kids tonight and then, when they are in bed, prominently display them on our coffee table! These are too pretty to hide in one of my kids’ room!

Each set of blocks is created with replenishable basswood, printed with non-toxic inks and made by really nice folks in Michigan who have been making heirloom wood toys for generations.

Yay for well designed, and well crafted kids toys.

Big Questions

book

I truly love the concept behind this book: Big kids questions answered simply by truly great minds. A sample question would be: If you’re on a boat, with no food or water, what do you do? The answer is by Roz Savage, first woman to row three oceans. Or, Why is space so sparkly? Answered by Martin Rees, an astronomer.

My three year old, letter obsessed Tilo, is seriously in love with his Alphaberry by B. Toys. I am usually not a big fan of toys that teach the alphabet, but this one won me over.

Internets Banner

I am a big fan of Banter Banners and this new INTERNETS one made me chuckle. Now, if only it came in just white. Which reminds me, you can make your own. Hmm…
