Violet got an early Christmas gift this year courtesy of Uncommon Goods. I love their products for adults (we actually ordered some whiskey stones from them for my brother-in-law last year), but I was surprised to find out that they have a lot of great kids' products, which you can check out here. As soon as she saw the organic crocheted fruit rattles she decided we were going to have a picnic! The fruit went into her 'Dorothy basket' (usually reserved for Toto) and she went in search of a blanket. The teepee had to come in of course too, because pretty much all of our summer 'picnics' were held within it. We had a great time sharing tea and munching on (and shaking) the fruit, and when we cleaned up she found a special place for it in her play kitchen (so 'no one else get it').
From a mama's perspective, I am pretty smitten with our new toys as well. The fruit rattles are high quality and they meet my two big 'musts' for toys in our home: they look pretty and Violet loves them. Since we have a teeny home her toys have to be out in our main living areas, and while of course number one is that Violet enjoys her toys (otherwise what's the point!?), I also don't want them to be an eyesore. Plus these would make great stocking stuffers! (Which by the way if you're still hunting they also have a ton of great smaller gifts as well, perfect for stockings.) A big thank you to Uncommon Goods for playing Santa for us this year! xo, Lauren
We received a set of organic crochet fruit rattles from Uncommon Goods to review for this post, but were not compensated in any way. All opinions expressed are my own.
