MobileHome If you haven’t noticed, we skipped the Safer Toy Guide this year.  Not because we don’t care, but more because we all have new babies at home and well, time is limited.  So in lieu we’ve been doing giveaways to help highlight some of the fantastic vendors we support.  One of those is MightyNest.com which is a great site for information on living a healthier lifestyle as well as a shop to get safe toys, feeding gear and clothing for your sustainable little ones.

They have so generously offered two amazing items for two of our lucky readers.  Here’s what is up for grabs… First prize going home with one lucky winner is…

Mobile Home by Grimm’s Spiel & Holt Design which features toys handmade in Germany out of solid, natural wood using water based dyes.  This 14 piece doll home set comes with a felt cover with a string making it easy to carry and take with you!  The mobile home is ingenious in that it breaks down into individual pieces that can be mixed with other toys and dolls and then packs up into something so portable.  Plus it’s super adorable.  I know several little girls that would love this!

SailboatPuzzleCarPuzzleOur second winner gets to take home two adorable puzzles also made by Grimm’s Spiel & Holt Design.  A Sailboat puzzle and Car puzzle, both made of natural wood and water-based dyes.  What’s nice about these is that they serve a dual purpose.. puzzle and building blocks.  My son has spent countless hours with wood blocks and I have no doubt he’d do the same with these.  With two puzzles kids often mix and match them into unique and creative creations.  They are also one of those toys you have around forever, that add to a child’s room decor rather than clutter it up with plastic junk.
