Finding toys that are incredibly original, inspirational and not made of plastic doesn’t happen all too often. I can say it most definitely happened when I clapped eyes on these adorable vintage-look mushrooms from Etsy shop Wee Wood Natural Toys. Waldorf-inspired, the story of these mushrooms is just as precious: it starts in the woodlands of magical Misty Mountain, where they grow and flourish in a brilliant array of colours and sizes alongside their fairy and gnome friends.
Being completely natural, non-toxic and handmade makes them perfect for any type of play. Oh my, children’s imaginations will run wild. I can envision my daughter using these little forest lovelies with her dollhouse garden, carefully placing them in position and then colour coordinating them (she’s very into colours right now).
Wee Wood can provide them coloured or natural to allow for a fabulous crafting day of painting your own mushrooms. The mushrooms are available in varied sets, with prices ranging from US$6 to US$20 plus shipping to Australia. While you’re at Wee Wood, don’t forget to check out their lovely range of other natural wood learning and playing toys.
