First there was..
Quack the duck, then Hoss the rabbit, and now its Owlet the puppet (aka hootie) that never leaves my little girls side. These hand puppets by Folkmanis are pretty amazing characters. Started by a mom and pop 31 years ago, they have grown to become the leading manufacturer of plush puppets worldwide. The designs are really life like and are available in just about every animal imaginable. They’re educational in the way that they teach kids the different species of wild life, and even better they spark creativity. However, in Leni’s case they’re most useful for cuddling.

ABC Personalized Rattles
toys are a favorite in my house, and our go to is Little Alouette. My daughter loves the Pyramid Stacker and the ABC Personalized Rattles make great gifts. I’m planning on getting the wooden sword for her when she’s old enough to know that taking jabs at the dog is just not cool. I feel comfortable letting her put the toys in her mouth, knowing they are made from natural wood and finished with organic flax seed oil. What’s even better is that Little Alouette was started by a mom and pop, so knowing what kids like is their forte.
