Toys for Kids

(Playroom, Mahar Home)

What do you buy for a sweet little girl's birthday who is number four in the line up? I was stumped until reading the Lisa Mahar post that I mentioned a few days ago. If you haven't read the interview yet, and you're interested in exploring one mom's take on kids playing with "materials" rather than toys, take a peek.

Lisa is the owner of Kid O, a design store for children. After stumbling on this post by A Merry Mishap, I read the interview which took me to Lisa's online store. I browsed around and found this fascinating tub and decided my search was over. We'll see how she likes it--today is her day...

I also want to mention that my thoughts have been with Lisa and the Kid O staff all week. Last week I ordered the gift along with some other little things that I wanted to give to other people. A few days after making the online order, I got a call from a staff member at the store saying that while they could ship the Bilibo from their New Jersey warehouse, they wouldn't be able to accommodate the rest of the order due to a fire that had happened overnight that took the store and its wares. I felt so terrible for everyone involved with the store--it reminded me of how I felt while working with TKRG during the per se fire. I hope they are able to reconstruct and carry on as soon as they wish to...

So great! I have seen these before and thought of getting one. You will have to let us know how she likes it. These might also cool if you need ideas for the future.

Oh! We/Ella loves her bilibo! It is a boat, baby bed, stool, spinner, seat, helmet, and who knows what else that I have probably missed! We keep things pretty skinny around here, so if you need any other "material" type gifts, lemme know!! I am Sooooo jealous about your purl soho warehouse trip!!! C you soon!
