Duplo

Our family digs Duplo.  We haven’t graduated to Lego yet because M likes to put everything in her mouth and Pax is not quite tidy enough to clean up all the little pieces. I love this rather sweet Winnie the Pooh set. If you check out Amazon Warehouse deals then sometimes you can score some good deals with Duplo.  Just search “Amazon Warehouse” and look to see what kind of savings you could score.  Lego has a good fair toy standards which is why we love lego because it’s also so versatile. Pax just loves to use the blocks to build houses, boats, dogs — you name it. It’s a great learning toy for children.

Recycled green toy rocket made in the USA.  Love these toys.  Pax saw this at the toy store the other day and was playing with it the whole time. We have the boat which we use for the bath.  Great durable toy.

Dsenyo works with women in Malawi to empower them with jobs and I’m inspired by the founder of this company and what she is doing.  It’s great.  I saw these plushies in person at a fair trade market place back in Austin and I have always loved the bunny one.  Love the mix of African fabrics here.  Great price!

Yay!  Finally posted up our lovely plush toys handmade by near deaf/deaf women in China. I love these so much. Meira is now hugging both of them to sleep.  The detail on these are amazing.

Happy Friday!

 

Super Summer Sale

Sorry for the silence at our end.  I was on a mini-break and the week to catch up on every day things has been hectic.  We also had a event at Starbucks headquarters in SODO, Seattle.  I will hopefully be back to a regular blogging schedule but not before I let you all know that I will be putting new product in the shop and marking them down for the year end summer sale.  We have a bunch of items that we offer that are not available online like these cuties:

bloomersRL-2

Bloomers! from $12 to $6!

bibmodelRL

 

Bib from $12 to $6 (cute kiddo not included)

or how about this for the ladies:

bluebrownneckSP-2

 

It’s $37 and we will be marking it down by 25%!  We have just one left!

travelsoap_RL-1

 

The travel soap is the best deal of all from $22 to $6.  One left!

We want to clear out our storage room so we can start designing new products with the women artisans we are partnered with.  We want to continue to provide solid fair work for these wonderful women.

That’s just a few of the deals we have in store. I will try my best to post it all up and let you know via facebook and G+.  I’m the jack of all trades here. I photograph, I upload, I fix, and entertain my kiddos so i’m up for the challenge!

Fight poverty, buy fair trade.
