Don't Tell Noli, But...

So cute. So very, very cute!

I'll have a hard time putting these away for Christmas, but I'm going to, since they will be for Noli. (But I just may play with them first!!!)

These little cars are perfect for Noli -- we're trying to raise her without a lot of commercial toys and with as much "pretend on your own" as possible. It's so fun to listen to her sweet conversations between her little people -- and I know they will enjoy riding around on these cute wooden cars!

I was the lucky winner of a giveaway from Finns & Flowers on Etsy (hosted by the Natural Kids Team)Please be sure to check out their shop! They have lots of really sweet kid toys, all natually made in the Waldorf tradition.

According to their profile:
"We try to accomplish this by using wonderfully dyed wool and different species of wood. We don't paint or stain the wood, but rather let the natural variations in color and grain patterns speak for themselves. We then hand rub each wooden toy with either a mixture of beeswax and jojoba oil, or environmentally and child safe linseed oil to further enhance the beauty and protect the wood."

Noli loves wands -- fairy wands, princess wands, fairy princess wands...  I love these 'cause they're needle felted.

And these balls!! So colorful and fun! Again, needle felted. I'm in awe. I haven't tried needle felting myself, but I've watched my daughter make little folks for Noli and I know all the work that is involved.

I was so pleased that I won this giveaway, I just may have to enter another!! And that tractor up there? Just might show up in Noli's stocking!!

Oh, we were just discussing how we want to do the same with Stephen! Imagination is so much better, don't you think?
