Rosie Hippo: Earth Friendly, Unique and Handmade Toys
Posted Jun 30 2009 5:14pm
Rosie Hippo offers parents a place to shop for unique, handmade, organic, fair trade and eco-friendly toys.
They have toys made of wood, made of fair trade materials, they have stuffed animals, pretend play toys, and everything you need to spark your child’s imagination and give them something safe to play with.
My little guy loves monkeys, absolutely adores them and Rosie Hippo has the cutest hand crafted, fair trade monkeys. They are so adorable. In fact they are so cute my little guy did not want to share and give the pretty pink and charcoal one to his big sister. He was determined to keep them both. He finally caved and gave her the pink one but he keeps stealing it back.
They also have the Sandsac, an eco-alternative to plastic sand buckets. The Sandsac is a heavy duty canvas bucket bag that comes with non-toxic markers so the kids can decorate it. It also comes with a bamboo spoon (shovel).
My kids s nagged it, drew on it and hauled it off to the sand box but I can see using the Sandsac as a stylin tote bag. You can stencil designs on it and have a very unique bag. And it comes in three sizes. I think we have the small. I would love to get the large one and use it as a carry all bag. Now that’s a heavy duty bag that could hold some stuff.
I am making a list of toys at Rosie Hippo that my kids might be getting for Christmas. They have the cutest things. The little stuffed lambs are sooo cute and I want the stuffed turtles. You’ll have to check it out to see what I mean, they have an awesome selection. It’ll make you want to be a kids again.
