zooModern Animal Friends

They’re in that sweet spot between stuffed animals and wooden toys, but if that seems odd, it doesn’t matter once you see just how cute they are!

From zooModern, choose Leo the Bear, Evan the Rabbit, Lars the Owl or Abe the Fox. ($65 each)

The zooModern animals are made from rubberwood and their jackets are wool with a metal snap. They are cuddly as well as easy to play with and made to last. If you’re looking to buy “better” instead of “more”, put these on your gift shopping list. Evan the Rabbit is going on mine!

Skip Hop Explore & More Jumpscape Fold-Away Jumper

I’ve never posted a jumper on the blog in all the years I’ve been doing this, but if you’re partial to a jumper over an activity center, the Explore & More Jumpscape Fold-Away Jumper from Skip Hop is the one I’m going to recommend for a few reasons.

First, it’s from Skip Hop so it’s got all the fun colors and familiar shapes and characters we already love. Secondly, it serves as an activity center with tons of activities, sounds, lights and toys. But most importantly, it folds flat to less than 7 inches and is super easy to hide away when you’re not using it because it’s still a big plastic contraption and no matter how cute it is, you’d rather not be tripping over it all the time.

The Jumper is coming out at the end of the month, but you can pre-order yours now or add it to your baby registry.

Fun New Playsets from Green Toys

We’ve always loved Green Toys for their commitment to the environment with their use of recycled materials as well as their durable and open-ended toy designs.

Now these new playsets are among their most elaborate toys yet. They feature multiple pieces and tons of play value for toddlers 2 and up. The best part is that all the pieces fit inside the building and with the handles on top it’s easy to transport and put the set away.

Pick the Farm Playset or…
