An heirloom-worthy stacking toy

I’m one step closer to becoming a treehugger. My new toy crush is made with organic maple, cherry and walnut wood and tackles balance, problem solving, pattern recognition and fine motor skills.

Oh, and it’s for babies.

The Brainbow Stacking Nesting Arches (Brainbow! Love that name!) from Little Sapling Toys is the antidote to those brightly colored plastic stacking toys found at every big box toy store. It’s the toy I can imagine safely
storing away after my son grows out of it to save for his kids.

I love
the handcrafted look and feel of it; each piece is sanded to an
elegantly smooth finish and then treated with light beeswax and organic
jojoba oil to bring out the wood’s natural patterns. There are countless ways to stack, balance
and play with this charming toy.

This little company with a big heart also donates to Trees for the Future for every toy sold. More trees = more awesome handmade toys! -Melissa
