Looking at my daughter’s bookshelf recently, it occurred to me there’s nothing I love more for children than old-school toys such as cloth dolls and wooden blocks. A simple yet gorgeous toy can do so much more for a child’s imagination than most of the electronic things available today.
I guess that’s why I love the quirky knitted toys from Needle Noodles. Made with cotton/acrylic wool, the items are filled with polyester fibrefill and poly pellets and measure roughly between five and 10 centimetres. The perfect size to pop on the old desktop or the dashboard.
Choose from a host of different creatures (I personally love the monkey) or the offbeat sushi set. The great things is that these toys aren’t just for children, you could also give them to a friend as a little thank you gift, or purchase one for yourself as a little pick-me-up.
Priced from US$7, shipping is US$6 or a tiny US$0.50 if shipped with another item.
