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

Villa Sibi Dollhouse from www.sirch.de

Rutschi Slide from www.kaetherundweise.de

I’m sure some of you out there are proud owners of the adorable Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair. Well this ingenious slide is a very simple design that allows your high chair to quickly transform into a slide. Perfect for those rainy days when a trip to the park is not your idea of a fun time!

This clever combination of a rocker and bassinet allows the flexibility of holding your precious in your arms and rocking him/her to sleep OR laying the baby down and rocking both of you to sleep!

The doll house looks like a container van.
