Melisa Santacroce's Profile
Pixiekids Toys are all handmade out of Eco-felt, which is felt manufactured from recycled plastic bottles. We believe that imaginative play toys are all the more meaningful when they are handmade and ecologically sound. The artist behind Pixiekids Toys, Melisa Santacroce, is a stay-at-home mom whose baby boy loves to play with the toys that she makes. Nine-year old Gabe is the "idea" guy and inspires new designs, while husband Bill makes the wooden boxes that come with some of the felt food sets.
Melisa is also a Speech Language Pathologist and she has had Montessori Teacher Training, so she is constantly looking for ways to embed positive educational experiences with her handmade items. All Pixiekids Toys are made to encourage imaginative play and language development. Items require hand-stitching to finish and extra care is taken to be sure that pieces will not easily come apart in the hands…
