Crochet toys – less plastic in your child’s room

Ok – this is a bit of a weird one, but I am in love with this artistic piece of crochet work!

On the left you see a conventional stacking toy for small children made from plastic and on the right – yes! – the crochet version! I absolutely love the detailing and creativity which the designer mom put in it ( I talked to her in person at the market where she was selling her hand-made crafts). Check out the ‘worm’ and his nature friends ‘bee’, ‘lady bug’ and ‘dragon fly’!

This will certainly add some fantasy to your child’s toy box and reduce the huge amount of plastic, that quietly monopolizes our children’s rooms. 🙂
