Peapods Toys Highlighted in the 2013 Mothering Magazine Natural Toy Guide

Minnesota Toymakers Featured as Top Picks!

Thanks so much to Mothering Magazine for featuring Peapods Toys in their 2013 Natural Toy Guide and for naming our YOXO Original YOXOBot and our Wooden Fox Teether as "Top Picks"! We're particularly pleased because both toys are made in Minnesota.
YOXOBot Construction Toy

Here's what Mothering had to say about the YOXOBot

“This is by far one of the coolest toys to hit the market in a long while...Designed to get kids building in seconds, just pair the smartly designed YOXO links and cores with everyday household items and your kids will be recycling old cereal boxes and toilet paper tubes into spaceships and fairy houses in no time. Recycled and recyclable content, soy-based inks and water-based coating make this toy a truly eco-friendly option at an outstanding price."

Our Wooden Fox Teether
 Mothering also praised our hardwood Fox Teether, which is made in Minneapolis by Oak Tree Arts. We loved this toy the moment we first touched it, so we agree wholeheartedly:
"You won't find another baby teether quite like this one! With a one of a kind cherry wood fox for chewing on and a soft, crinkly tail to pull, your little one will be delighted."
 We first started reading Mothering almost 18 years ago when Abby was a baby, so we really appreciate all that they have done to promote attachment parenting through the years.

Also in this year's guide are our Camden Rose Wooden Octagon Sorter and our Edible Finger Paints.

In addition to the toys we asked them to review, Mothering also highlighted several toys from The Original Tree Swing, another wonderful Minnesota toymaker which we are proud to feature. Their craft kits and their Wooden Waldorf Tree House also won "Top Picks" awards.

"What a fantastic idea--a tree house for dolls! A rope ladder, wooden basket, tree swing and lots of stairs make this doll house totally unique and perfect for play with standard dollhouse dolls, fairies, gnomes and so much more."
