On Etsy since 2008

Imagination is a gift they will never outgrow.

My grandmother taught me to knit when I was six. Needlework, cross stitch, and other handwork soon followed. My mother taught me to use a sewing machine when I was twelve and a made the most ill-fitting blue corduroy jumper dress known to man. I was hooked.

I sewed so much on my mother’s machine that I was given my own for my 16th birthday. I wore out the motor on that starter machine and upgraded to my current Elna for my 18th birthday. I was one of two architecture students who had a sewing machine and a laptop on my desk at college.

I pursued a career in architecture, unsure of how to make a living sewing without becoming a fashion designer (um… no). I loved it. I loved every minute of designing and dreaming and talking with clients and watching the thoughts from my head come to life in the real world. And then I had a baby.

Suddenly, my priorities shifted. Dramatically. And as the newborn new mama stupor started to fade, I found that the urge to design was still strong. I started making toys for my baby. Then for my next baby. Then friends and strangers started asking to buy them. I had found the creative life that I was born to live.

Designing and making toys satisfies a deep ache in my heart. To create lovely, useful, developmentally appropriate little pieces of art for children to explore and touch and play with is a design dream come true. Helping parents give good gifts to their children is the icing on the creative cake.

All of the toys are compliant with all Consumer Product Safety Commission regulations.

Are your toys safe?

Toy safety is a huge issue for me. The whole reason I started making toys was a lead paint recall on one of my son's favorite toys. I knew I could do better and so I set out to design beautiful, fun, SAFE toys for toddlers and children. All items in my shop are fully compliant with all CPSC regulations. Your little one's safety is important to me and I have poured hours into reading and understanding those regulations so that you can rest assured you are buying a safe toy.

Do you ship outside of the US?

For the sewing kits, YES!

Because toy safety is so important to me, I feel it is important to only ship to countries that I have researched and met all safety regulations. I know my toys are safe, but I want for you to have the peace of mind knowing that they are deemed safe by your country.

Please sign up for VIP email list to learn more about toy safety and to be kept in the loop for when I finish all of the paperwork required to legally sell to your country. Send me a note letting me know where you're from so I know where to focus my efforts first.

Please be safe with your children and only buy toys from shops that have met the safety regulations.
