Giveaway: Down To Earth Toys

If you have children, you probably love wooden toys. There is something soothing about the sound of wooden blocks clinking together, like windchimes.  I don’t feel the least temptation to smash them, which is more than I can say for certain other toys that have made their way into my house.

We have an adorable new toy: it’s a set of wooden blocks that form a house.  The pieces that combine to build a house are also the furniture for the house when it’s taken apart.  It’s really ingenius!  I love the feel of the wood and the simple smooth design of the parts.  It’s called the All-in-House Stacking Toy.

I love it, but I also let the little ones play with it.  Shhh.  They think it’s theirs.

I love the colors: bright, but the natural wood grain still shows through clearly.  It looks and feels more like stain than paint.  Maybe it is?

His big brother built this.  He is duly impressed.

Little Pickle couldn’t keep his hands off!

Big brother at work again, trying to reassemble the house.  It’s challenging enough that all the teens wanted a go at it, too.

Today, I even got a chance to play with it.  See?  I did it!

Our new toy came from Down To Earth Toys.  As the name suggests, their product focus is organic, old-fashioned, and natural toys.
