Holiday Toys: Tea Parties and Royalty!

TGIF! Today, we have some adorable holiday toys to feature. Baby Tea Party’s 5-piece soft plush play set stimulates babies’ developing senses to a ‘tea!’ Each play piece features different activities:  Teapot plays “I’m a Little Teapot”, Cups rattle and have a crinkly tea bag tag, Croissant crinkles and the rattling Cupcake has a flip-top mirror inside. We found it on Amazon for $20.57. The Royal Rattle Sets come in two variations: Prince and Princess. Each rattle features a soft, chewy crown, a crinkly cloak and teether arms with colorful beads and multiple textures for infants to explore. Their easy-grab royal scepter makes a soothing chime sound with each shake! We found it on for $21. We received each as a gift from the manufacturer, and we think they are great fun!

Playmobil: Wild Life Waterhole

Playmobil was always fascinating to me as a child. All of the fabulous details, and fun moveable parts. Playmobil sent us the Wild Life Waterhole, $44.99, and our little testers love it! There is even a platform for the observers to watch the animals. The set is suitable for kids ages three and up. The best part is this set will provide hours of entertainment. Check it out at Playmobil!

Pottery Barn Kids {Baby Room Inspiration}


Pottery Barn Kids has some adorable new baby room designs. All things baby boy have been tugging at my heart strings lately. At first glance, this circus nursery seems too busy—but you know what? I think its fabulous. You can always tone down the theme by skipping the polka dots at the top of the room.




These toys (above) are a sweet way to keep the continuity of theme flowing throughout the space, $29-$32. And I love the modern take on this classic rocker! It sells for $129. The stripes on the walls really make everything pop. 


Essential Toys for Baby

Every generation has their iconic toys. The Fisher-Price Chatter Phone comes to mind from my baby days…do you recall a favorite baby toy?

While I also adore the look of sleek, modern playthings, there is a place in my heart for the retro feel of these four basic toys. They each come in many styles and designs….yet their look is always timeless. These selections are all from Land of Nod.  

More information on each of these toys, after the jump…..
