your littles do better when they pretend

Wooden video camera toy - retro toys for kids - toddler pretend play toys | Small for Big

The timeless qualities of wood, I could wax poetic for several paragraphs. But since I’m hopeful that’s just preaching the choir, and all of you would agree with me from start to finish, I’ll spare you the details. Let’s just all agree that wooden toys are gorgeous, timeless, and good for the soul (both ours and theirs).


I just found these gems from Fanny & Alexander thanks to Pinterest, and I’m so glad I can share them with you. I fear Birdie has reached the age where pretend cameras just won’t cut it anymore when she can grab my phone at any given moment. It’s such a sad state of affairs, and yet I do love seeing the photos she comes up with. So instead, I’m hoping some of your littles are still at the age when handing them a real camera is just too much.

Do you thinnk we’d have to explain what the video camera is to them? Times, they change so fast right? You can find the green camera, brown camera, and video camera through Norman and Jules. The binoculars and toolset at Smitten!
