My kids loved this hunt!! Proved to be an awesome snow day event! The rhymes are cute and teach facts! My first grader was able to read them all by himself and loved it! Thank you! You should make more!!

One parent's review: "thank you so much for the activity book! We could not get through dinner without it!" It's perfect for keeping kids quietly entertained, without a screen.
The kids found the clues under the sink, but now they must figure out which state means "snow covered"!
The Geography Game has officially been tested by a first grader and second grader! It took them nearly an HOUR to complete, but they loved every second!

About

I'm a nanny who loves to create fun things for kids.

Hi! I'm Melissa, the Tomboy Nanny. I have been working with children and creating them little toys and gifts for... well, as long as I can remember. I learned how knit when I was 6, and started taking care of smaller children at age 10. Everything in my shop is created by me, and inspired by my current charge: a gradeschooler in Santa Monica, CA.

I prefer to use acrylic yarn for many reasons: it comes in a wide array of bright colors, it's easily washable, and it's hypoallergenic. Perfect for kids!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Have a color in mind? I can get my hands on almost any color or shade imaginable. Also, if you'd prefer a different style, animal, or what have you, I'm sure I can accommodate.

Sizing details

Most of my items are toys or one size fits all. The Superhero Sleeves can fit pretty much any child (they stretch, and even teenagers can wear them). I also have adult sizes available.

Care instructions

Items that are not stuffed animals can be tossed in the washing machine (gentle cycle with similar colors). Let them air dry, which doesn't take long at all. Acrylic yarn doesn't hold in moisture.

Stuffed animals can be washed with soap and a soft cloth.
