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!

My First Cubby From Little Partners

It’s amazing how preschool teachers are able to manage each day with a classroom full of tots when you’re at home tearing our hair out with just one or two. How do they do it? A lot of it is routine and allowing kids to do as much as they can on their own. You can bring home that type of preschool routine and encourage independent responsibility with the My First Cubby from Little Partners.

Cubby_Lifestyle_sitting-800x800

With six open storage areas and hooks, kids will store their own belongings and will be able to transition more independently from home to going out and back to home again.

LP_Cubby_Lifestyle-800x800

This doesn’t mean you’ll never have to tell them 20 times to put their shoes on, but at least they’ll know where their shoes are?

3sprouts Play Mat Bag

The play mat bags are the latest additions to the 3sprouts product line. The storage bags unfold into a play mat, and when you’re done, you can just fold it all up and store it away.

The bags come in Hedgehog, Whale, and Elephant, and retail for $25.

3sprouts also added a few new animals to previous products like the Hen Storage Bin, the Bear Toy Chest, and the Owl Storage Box. I think they just keep getting cuter!

A Blabla doll is a must-have in any modern nursery, so if we expand that logic, let’s say that these Blabla board books are going to be a must-have for your baby’s first library. With three titles by blabla Kids co-founder Florence Wetterwald, I think you’ve got bedtime reading covered. Given with a knit doll, you’ve got a really incredible gift as well.
