Grasshopper Store - Cute and Imaginative Toys, Books, and Art for Kids

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!):

    That is one way to get snow in South East Texas. Just the other day my son said, “Mom, I wish I could see real snow!”
    I still remember my childhood love of snow globes.. Ah, le sigh.
    Thank you for an awesome giveaway.

  19. Diane Slone says

    My DD is obsessed with snowglobes – she would love the opportunity to create her own to add to the ones lovingly provided by her grandmother.
    And the store is a great resource (as well as the blog) – I feel so fortunate to have found both!
