Candace and I discovered Rosie Hippo a few years ago and fell in love with their selection of natural toys, wooden toys and educational toys. The owner is now a friend of ours, but we want you to know we’re not being paid to post about Rosie Hippo here. Nor are we posting because we’re getting free product. In fact, I just ordered a bunch of Rosie Hippo products as Christmas presents using the 25% off code. Here’s what I bought:
A Wooden Teether: I’m expecting a baby boy in April, and my son loved Rosie’s cute wooden teething toys when he was a baby. Since the cute little Duck Ring teether was on sale, I bought it now for my baby-to-be!
A School Bus: My son loves the wooden garage he got from RosieHippo.com for his birthday. He already has a lot of wooden cars for the garage, and I bought the cute wooden school bus for his collection.
Wooden Animals: When my son was an infant, his room has a safari theme. I’ve since moved him to a “big boy” room with a car theme because he adores Lightning McQueen from the Disney CARS movie. We’re going to use the same safari theme and bedding for the new baby’s room, but I still want to make his nursery feel special rather than just a hand-me down from his big brother. So I purchased a bunch of beautiful hand-painted wooden animals from Rosie Hippo to match the safari theme. I’ll be mounting some shelves on the walls to display the lion, tiger, zebra, elephant and giraffe that I purchased. As baby grows older, he’ll enjoy playing with these heirloom-quality toys and can someday pass them on to his children.
Block Crayons: My son loves drawing and playing with crayons, but even chunky toddler-sized crayons are easily broken. I purchased a set of non-toxic beeswax block crayons that are virtually unbreakable. We’ll be using these for years!
Build-A-Pencil Kits: I bought these as stocking stuffers for my pre-teen goddaughters. I love these eco-friendly Build-A-Pencil kits. Rather than throwing out a pencil because the eraser is worn-down, just replace the old eraser with a new one and keep on writing and drawing! What a fun way to teach kids about helping the environment and reducing waste.
