Children’s Gift Guide
2007 has been a year of big changes for me. The biggest, of course, is that my life no longer revolves around me but instead around a 10-month old baby boy. I don’t think I’ve bought anything for myself this year. Therefore, any attempt at a gift guide would result in a lame collection of unorganized odds and ends. HOWEVER, when it comes to children’s toys that is a different story! For the entire year all I’ve done is look through baby magazines and websites. I developed a particular interest for foreign toys. (No, I’m not referring to “Made In China.”)
So for the rest of the week I’d like to show you a bunch of adorable toys that I’ve seen from all over the world.
Lets start with GERMANY
