I’m such a Land of Nod fan girl. I just think they have brilliant stuff, I love their style, and it’s hard to make a wrong choice when you’re picking gifts for kids. If you don’t live around here, but are planning a trip to the Chicago area anytime soon, try to fit in a quick visit to one of the Land of Nod stores.
In any event, this was a pretty easy post for me to put together, since I want to buy everything in their catalog, but I limited myself to 11 items that really caught my eye, or have been long favorites of mine (like the activity table and one-seaters).
Get your DIY on...
...with the top 5 Do-It-Yourself projects!
Do you love Land of Nod as I do? Look at this scintillating incentive they’ve got going on right now:
Now. On to the goodies!
1. Nod offers lots of growth charts for your kids, but this one really popped out at me- so cute. And you won’t have to make those pencil marks on your wall! (Allow 2-3 weeks for these if you opt for personalization) 2. Blocks are probably my favorite toy in all the world, and The Bucket O Blocks gives you 102 blocks in different colors and shapes to unleash mass creativity. 3.Spy Kit! Spy Kit! Think of the cool double life your kids could lead with this mysterious kit.
1. This may be my favorite Land of Nod product. You buy the table top, and you can get three sets of legs that grow as your kids do! Plus, you can get the paper roll that mounts under the table for a never-ending drawing surface. 2. This is sweet. It’s the Jetaire Camper Play Tent, and it’s a pretty wonderful incarnation of a fort. Look at that awning! 3. This doorway puppet theatre is utter genius and is a cinch to put up and take down when the puppet mood strikes. 4. Hey, little hippo. I just want to hug her, so I imagine kids would, too.
1. The One-Seater is one of their classic products that is sort of the smaller, more modern version of a beanbag. It’s great on its own or as seating for the low activity table. 2. This toolbelt with plush tools would work fabulously with Beckett’s Spiderman undies. I’m thinking this might be his uniform for a while. 3. Hand-crocheted ball rattles are the perfect holiday baby gift. So cute and chewable! 4. Like I said in my modern dollhouses post, I might have been interested in dollhouses as a kid if something like this existed.
Oh, and don’t forget to click over to their site at least to read some awesome knock-knock jokes… you’ll be the hit of every holiday party this year.
