Reading some other blogs today, I was introduced to Quiet Hours Toys. With all of the issues with toys from China, I know that a lot of people are looking for alternatives for Christmas gifts this year. Even without the lead issues, it is always nice to have some toys that aren't noisy, primary-colored plastic. This site features some wonderful artisan-crafted toys. I have not ordered from them yet, I'm still checking out the site but wanted to post it for anyone who might still be looking for that perfect Christmas gift.
Here are a couple of my favorites from the site.
Felt Brown Bag Lunch
Noah's Ark Set
Frog Knit Backpack
Flower Fairy Mobile
