Toy Scares

So far, I've only identified one of Liv's toys as a part of the numerous recalls. Unfortunately, in trying to explain why I was taking away one of her Polly Pocket toys, I frightened her. She panicked, but is OK now, after we talked a bit more. I told her this might be a great Christmas for buying presents on Etsy and she agreed - homemade goodies not toxic to our precious little ones!

Here are some favorites; check out the awesome artisans who made them by clicking on the pics and peruse Etsy for even more!

Some great work there! Just today my husband and I were about to buy a toy for our little one and decided against it because we were worried. It's perfect timing that I ran across this and remembered that there are safe, original alternatives! Thanks :)
