The Glücksstuhl is a walker, a chair, a blackboard for drawing, a secret hiding place, a rolling cart. It's a thoughtful, well-designed toy.

I am obsessed with these Mokulock blocks. They are carefully crafted from maple and birch, and I dig the subtle variations in color. My kiddo loves building with Legos, and these are actually compatible with the originals. Now if only I could get my hands on some...

I'm reading Simplicity Parenting, and chapter 3 really resonated with me. Less stuff leaves more room for creativity, interest, imagination, and connection. One doll that a child bonds with has more meaning than 20 dolls gathering dust. I love the emphasis on open-ended toys and have revised my Christmas shopping list for my little guy. Hoping to keep it simple and thoughtful during this holiday season.
These are some of my favorite spooky gift ideas for your little ones.
