Grasshopper Store, one of my long-time blog sponsors, sells all kinds of unique and beautiful toys, games, and puzzles for kids. They are a small business with a store you can walk into in Portland, Oregon (wish I could go!!) and, luckily for the rest of us, a great online shop as well.
I really love their selection—products that are fun, inspire creativity in children, and are lovely to look at. I thought I'd share a few of my favorites before I move on to their giveaway (a DIY Snow Globe kit!):
Here's What I Have in My Shopping Cart Right Now:
- Connexio: A Game of Infinite Associations and Imagination
- Elves Wall Stickers
- Metallic Gel Sticks
- Dweebies: The Card Game with Character
