I am delighted that six new items from Bella Luna Toys‘ collection of natural toys were chosen by the editors at Mothering magazine as among the Best Natural Toys of 2010 featured in the new November/December issue!
Which items, you ask? Well, here they are!
Waldorf Birthday Crowns
These gorgeous Waldorf birthday crowns are handmade in Maine by my friend and former classroom assistant, Jes Anthonis. Jes is a mama and crafter who is starting her own Waldorf childcare program at home. Available in petal pink or green, for ages 1 to 6. Aren’t they sweet?
Fairy Dress from Sarah’s Silks
New from Sarah’s Silks, a magical Fairy Dress with rainbow wings that attach to the wrists with elastic bands.
Wool Felt Crown Set
I adore this cheery, Wool Felt Crown Set set made of thick New Zealand wool with matching cuffs. It’s Fair Trade made in Nepal, and was one of my favorite finds this year!
Fairy Garland Set
This charming Fairy Garland Set features a garland of felted vines that ties around the head, with a 100% silk veil. Can be worn as a headpiece or cape. I just love the little hanging felted bumblebees, don’t you?
Big Drum from Plan Toys
I’ve been wanting to add more kids musical instruments at Bella Luna Toys. Here are the two newest additions, which will help to develop a child’s eye-hand coordination and sense of rhythm.
The Big Drum is our first addition from Plan Toys, a line of wonderful eco-friendly wooden toys, from which we’ll be adding many more new products in the coming weeks.
Tambourine from Plan Toys
…and the colorful Tambourine from Plan Toys. (Love the Bella Luna blue with moon and stars!)
Hope you’ll agree with the Mothering editors that these are among the best!
