I’ve been talking about Christmas and shopping a lot lately… probably because I am just so far behind! So it’s definitely on the forefront of my mind as I really try to come up with those fun, unique, and wonderful gifts. I try hard to not only get my kids toys that they’ll play with, but ones that will last up to some serious use. And every once in awhile, when I can find that “it” gift, I get that joy that comes with giving another person something really special. Luckily, I can always seem to find that “it” gift with Magicforest and their vast European collection of art-infused toys. This year, I found two awesome stocking gifts that will outshine anything else I could have put in there.
For Ezra’s big stocking toy, I selected a Build ‘n’ Go Car from Sevi, Europe’s senior wooden toy maker. In business for over 184 years, Sevi products are eco-friendly, extremely durable, and kid-safe.
I chose the Build ‘n’ Go Car for not only the things that Sevi is known for, but because I know Ezra will love that it’s a puzzle and toy in one. The wooden pieces of the car come apart, and allow the child to rebuild it, changing the features or the look of it as they go. Plus, the top red piece pushes down to “honk” the horn, which I know he’ll love. I’m also really impressed with the quality and weight of the wood, as well as the durable paint. I can see this one lasting for years to come!
For Reese, the choice was so obvious for his stocking toy. The boy absolutely loves pirates so I know he’ll be incredibly excited to get the Pirate Ship from OGAS.
Handmade OGAS boats are made from created from managed forests of spruce wood, making them eco-friendly. With keels made of metal, the boats boast cotton sails and water-based, eco-friendly pigments and finishes. All of the rigging and knots are done by hand, and they really sail! I can guarantee that this little guy will be the favorite new toy, and will get to sail the bathtub daily. I can’t wait to see Reese’s face when he realizes all of the unique details, but especially the Jolly Roger adorned sail. Just like I’ve come to expect from all Magicforest imports, the OGAS boat is super high quality and left out no detail too small!
Both of these amazing toys can be instantly purchased from Magicforest’s retailer, Bonjour Petit.
