I am a work-from-home mom & social worker and attended the Sacramento Waldorf School for 13 years. When my daughter was 2, she asked me to sew an apron for her just like mine! Then she wanted a tablecloth & cloth napkins, then beans bags, & a puppet theater. I started sewing for her, her friends, and then started selling to families around Northern California. My husband is key in supporting the technical/computer (and moving heavy boxes) side of the business. My children are now 13 and 10 and attend the Sacramento Waldorf School. A few other wonderful Elves (especially Betsy, Paul, Julliah, Melissa, Jen, Bonnie, Edna, Betty, and our children) help us out on and off throughout the year and especially during busy times. I couldn't do it without them!
For 12 years, I have offered an extensive selection of mostly hand-made toys made by me, friends in Northern California, around the United States, and around the world. Whenever possible, I purchase directly from the artisans. In general, these toys are made from wood, cotton, wool, silk, and other natural and high-quality materials and are open-ended, leaving lots of room for the child to develop and use his/her own imagination and imitation skills. A few items are just plain fun and I couldn't resist offering them to you. I also buy from a few larger manufacturers that have strong ethical and safety policies whether manufacturing in Germany, USA, Thailand, Canada, China, or elsewhere.
I hope you will enjoy the ease of shopping from home! I always welcome your questions, suggestions and leads on new products, feedback, testimonials, special orders/inquiries, and thoughts! Since I am constantly searching the world for more unique and wholesome toys and gifts, check back frequently to see my new offerings.
Happy Playing, Sonya
