Little shops like the Handmade Classroom are a breath of fresh air, I think.
Everything is handmade, from recycled or natural materials whenever possible, and inspired by children's artwork. Perfectly simple.
I love the rainbow and the pumpkin patch set in particular.
And, if you're stuck for a really fun, educational and original Christmas present for the whole family, how about these Solar System needlefelted 3D flashcards? I know my husband would love to buy something like this for Savannah and Miles.
