Creative Toys Spotlight: Palumba

Affiliate links may be included in this post. Thank you for supporting Craftwhack!

I’ve mentioned this company before, but I just want to write a whole post about them, because I adore them. Every time I get a catalog in the mail I look through it and am transported to a magical world where it’s always beautiful outside, and barefoot kids are running around, playing beautifully together, using their imaginations, and never stomp inside shrieking about what their brother just did to them.

Palumba is a company based in Michigan, and dedicated to offering organic, natural, sustainably built, handmade children’s items created from all natural materials. From their site:

80% of our toys are made in the USA; the rest are crafted in Fair Trade Cooperatives. All of our toys are made without any toxins or unsafe parts. They are all of heirloom quality, hand crafted and sustainably made with care and integrity.

This is pretty great all by itself, but you will fall in love when you start scrolling down.

I am not affiliated with Plaumba in any way, I just happen to be a superfan.

    OMG, love these gorgeous wooden toys. I have such a weakness for well crafted, old -fashioned wooden toys!

    I love Waldorf toys! I’d love to get the dollhouse. You know, stilts are really hard to walk on!
