Kidding Around Toys

toysWhile I would really love for my kids to play with handcrafted, eco-friendly and artistically stunning toys,  I also know full well that I might as well just set a pile of money on fire. The beautiful wooden farm house with hand painted animals is coated in a layer of dust.  The hand-sewn finger puppet theater has yet to be touched by a human hand.  That being said,  I don’t want a house full of flashing plastic junk but I do like to find items that my kids will actually play with.

Kidding Around is a toy store in Chelsea that I really love as it does a great job stocking toys which are both parent savvy and ones that your kids will love. The website is in dire need of a makeover but if you visit the store in person you will be extremely pleased with what you find inside. Not only is it huge but it has everything that a child could want from birth through the teen years — all of which is thoughtfully edited and categorized.  It is my go-to place for amazing birthday gifts and I always stumble upon something new when I go.

I have my sights set on this little red accordian to buy as a gift for someone who bought my girls two recorders last month.   Payback time!

Ha, I gave Courtney’s son that accordian for his first birthday. Last time I checked his parents had wisely put it up high on a shelf….

I use to shop in many toys` store, but recently I`ve discovered an Italian factory that sell on internet, and on their website they show their different toys with videos that help you chose.
I think they make lovely toys, really!

oh, they deliver all over the world!
