I fell in love with these toys from Just Hatched on Etsy a few months ago, and wanted to buy them for everyone I know. Amanda and Joel Troxell got tired of mass produced toys that fell apart rather quickly. They were spurred to make their own toys when they discovered the beauty of hand-crafted wood toys:
We immediately fell in love with the beauty of simple, handcrafted toys. The first time I handled the things we began buying for our kids, I knew there was a lot of thought and care that went into it. While the word "artist" never went though my mind, I remember thinking, "I want to make beautiful things like this, too."Read more about Amanda and Joel that crafts these imaginative toys here--it's such a great story! (That's their son above.)
