If Santa’s elves make everything, why do the boxes say “made in China?” my little sister asked me several decades ago. Her prescient question rings more true now than ever, where it seems unlikely that the handiwork of elves had much to do with the toys I see on store shelves.
The mom-owned Little Choux online store is filled with imaginative toys, lovely room decor, and adorable accessories—like our favorite Vs mittens that we discovered this week. And there isn’t a blinky, noisy, battery-operated toy anywhere, though Little Choux does have a finger on the pulse of cool, with toys and crafts by Tegu and GLOB, along with loads more.
There are also ideas for moms-to-be, snazzy accessories for those holiday photos, and a bunch of stocking stuffers like these super-cute Riding Hood Finger Puppets. Pair it with this adorable Puppet Theatre (shown above) and then relax with a cup of eggnog–I’m sure the elves would approve. –Christina
