TO DIE FOR THURSDAY: Timber! {GIVEAWAY}

If your child's holiday wish list is anything like the one I put together for my girls, it's full of plastic toys in obnoxiously bright colors.  Our living room already looks like a box of Crayolas exploded all over it so I went looking for some fun play things that aren't mass-produced in a country far far away.  What did I find?  Some fabulous hand-crafted wooden heirlooms from Wood Toy Shop.  Tell me this personalized wooden tool set isn't a little boy's dream present!




And how great are all of the wheeled wooden vehicles?




A few of the items from Wood Toy Shop are rubber band propelled, like this race car which can go up to 30 feet!

And the rubber band powered boats would be so fun for the tub.



You also have to check out Maple Man.  His limbs are attached with bungee cord so your little one can pose him lots of different ways.




There are some items in the Wood Toy Shop that would be great gifts for little girls too, like this bus full of colorful people.



Or the wooden smart phone which lets any kid who be just like mom or dad.




My personal favorite item from Wood Toy Shop?  The secret decoder!

I would have spent hours using this toy to type out secret messages when I was a kid.  And that's exactly what I love about the toys from Wood Toy Shop - your kids will use their imagination when they play with them.  I also love that they're eco-friendly and will last forever.  They're finished with non-toxic mineral oil and most of the wood comes from mill ends and scrap from cabinet shops.  Oh, and the workshop where they're made is powered by solar panels!  Finally, a gift you can feel good about giving.  And with prices starting at just $3 (yes, I said $3!), your wallet will feel pretty good too.

Wood Toy Shop's adorable toys are on AFOMFT's Holiday Must Have List.



And you can score one of your very own too!
