Dragonfly – rare treasures

There are so many amazing quality toys at
Dragonfly that even the most jaded gift-hunter will exclaim with delight.

Wooden toys for special occasions are always lovely, and here we’re seeing a return to handcrafted toys from natural materials. Spark
an imaginative adventure with this beautiful solid wood
treehouse – perfect for those often
hard to settle tactile learners, it features a crane and six levels,
large and small. Furnish as desired or leave as a work site for
busy builders. Made from branches of Elder and Cherry trees, each treehouse is unique. It’s priced at $275.

My eldest son is turning four soon, so I’ve started looking for
things that will encourage his fine motor skills. He has
always had good manual dexterity, and so as not to stream him
solely into traditionally male pursuits I’d like him to try his
hand at knitting. I had an old Knitting Nancy when I was young, so this
gorgeous
mushroom version appeals to me for my son. At just $13.80, it’s worth a try – I would love a son who knits!

For those expecting babies, or who would like to brighten up a dark corner of a Victorian-era abode, I like this perky
Volabella mobile. A sweet flock of birds can come to live with you and amuse baby with gentle movement and tranquil forms to stare at. It’s $88.50.

With so many rare and wonderful pieces,
Dragonfly is stocked for the festive season and beyond with wonderfully
unexpected options for gift giving. Shipping is a tiny $8 flat rate!
