These are too cute! My daughter loves putting the little peg person in the stand. It's great for the high chair! I love great quality wooden toys.

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 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.

My daughter has left the laughingcrickets shop in order to open her own Etsy shop, SeaTreeAndMe, where she offers her beautiful jewelry creations. I hope you will browse all 3 shops!
