As a break from the furniture and strollers at ABC Kids Expo, I like to take some time out to browse the toy booths. Here are some of my favorite finds.
The Modern Living Dollhouse is my favorite KidKraft dollhouse to date. ($120)
From Haba I was drawn to the Hanging Tent American Indian ($200)…
… and the Color Fun wooden Play Gym ($68). I know we’re always looking for good wooden play gyms.
Then they have this Magic Forest Play Gym ($70) which is a tad cuter than the one we had, though for the price I’d probably go for the wooden one.
Luca & Company, which distributes IVI Play Carpets introduced a new design- the Mini City.
I was impressed with the entire collection at Begin Again. These back-to-the-basics toys feature beautiful, thoughtful and timeless designs.
And finally, one of my favorite booths at the expo was Flatout Frankie. I’ve been a fan of cardboard toys for a while, but these are the most beautifully designed that I’ve seen yet. The simple white graphics make all the difference. Glad to see they’ve got US distribution in place so we can start to enjoy these!
We’ll revisit these when they’re more widely available.
I’m going to have to start covering the toy fair, because this stuff is just too much fun. See anything that’s a must-have in your household?
