It was love at first sight when I came across the gorgeous handcrafted toys from Little Alouette. They’ve been described as “toys meet art” and their simple-yet-stylish designs, sculptural form and smooth finish will appeal to those who appreciate superb craftsmanship.
Many are designed to have a dual purpose as both teethers and toys to spark the imagination – think adorable shapes such as lions, giraffes, a T-Rex and the moon. My ten-month-old is well and truly at the “everything in the mouth” stage, so I particularly like the fact that all the wooden toys are varnished with certified organic flaxseed oil, which is completely safe for inquisitive little mouths.
To purchase locally, have a look at the range from Bebe.
