This set, like everything else is adorable and well done. The simplicity means it can be anything my kids want.

I have a great affinity for laughingcrickets, and shellys toys make up the vast majority of our toy area. I never regret ordering from her.

About

Whimsical wood learning toys for kids

After retiring from my art teaching position to help my daughter out with her twin boys and new daughter, she suggested we start an Etsy shop in order to keep our hands in the creative pot. It started out with a hodgepodge of things: toy sets we created, quilts, sachets, felted hats and booties, housewares, and vintage things. (we like to create A LOT!!) And then the toy sets really started taking off, so we concentrated on that.

As time went on, she became more interested in the sewing...me in the toy sets. I love coming up with different ways kids can have fun and learn at the same time. And since my degree was in teaching art, my sets concentrate on those concepts most. But I also love nature, and incorporate my love of animals and their imagined personalities into some of the sets as well. I love to go "junking", and sometimes come across things to upcycle into a new toy with whimsical additions.

Not content to do just one thing, I opened another Etsy shop, sallisonart, where I offer some of my smaller original paintings, silk and felted scarves, jewelry, and other art for the home and body.
