Temptation Tuesday: Make A Face

The best toys are the simplest and Moon Picnic’s Make a Face is a pegboard puzzle that will really play with your emotions… I mean… that will let you play with emotions.

Face pieces can be flipped around and arranged to create many different expressions.

The pieces are made of solid beech and are painted with non-toxic paint.

Make A Face will be at home in the best toy and puzzle collections. It’s going on my wishlist!

The Tooth Keeper

We’ve done tooth fairy roundups in the past, but what do you do after the tooth fairy arrives? I never know what to do with the tiny teeth. Some are in ziploc bags in my vanity drawer. Others are stashed elsewhere, I can’t even remember. I wish I had The Tooth-Keeper on hand when my boys first started losing their baby teeth so I could have kept them in order.

The Tooth Keeper comes in boy and girl versions. To find a good deal, just search for “tooth box organizer” on ebay.

Be Inspired by this Inspirational Nursery

Oh, the dreams that will be cultivated here! I feel privileged to share this inspirational space with you all. The art and accessories on the dark gray background are what really make this room incredible.

With a selection of feminist icons from The Film Artist on etsy, a young lady will have no shortage of role models to look up to.

I’m also crazy about the oversized text art.

A cozy reading area is a must have for developing young minds and getting them on the path to greatness.

MiO from Manhattan Toys

I still love the Little People of my childhood and I feel that Manhattan Toy’s MiO Collection is the wooden, modern version. The collection has an adorable car and a bus and there’s a trailer that can be used with either one.

MiO Car + 2 People

The flagship of the collection is the modern, modular dollhouse that is made up of sleeping, eating and working areas and comes with two people.

Mio Playing Eating Sleeping Working + 2 People

You can buy different modules separately like this sleeping set,

MiO Sleeping + 2 People

or the eating set.

MiO Eating + 2 People

Accessory block sets like the woodland with fox and skunk continue to expand creativity in play,

MiO Woodland Fox and Skunk

and you’d be amazed at the way you can use the camping set (think adding it to the trailer!).

MiO Camping + Bear

I’d love to collect them all and can’t wait to see what new pieces are added in the future. So much fun!
