There are some brands you come across as a mom and just cling to…those brands that really think creatively and put their heart and soul into what they do. The handmade stuffed toys by Cate & Levistole my heart way back in little C’s baby days. These crafty toys just make me smile, and carrying the puppet tradition down to baby L is so fun for me. Now she’ll have her unicorn to his firefighter. 🙂
No one product’s ever the same at Cate & Levi because they’re made from reclaimed wool. Cool, right? The company has really expanded its line to include home decor, bags and even organic baby clothing (hello, need to click over to that! Note to self.), but the puppets are by far the classics! The owl and the unicorn are newest to the family, and the unicorn baby L was sent is just so swoonworthy. I’m already using it to coax those tiny smiles out of her, but pretty soon I can’t wait to get big reactions and giggles back. Oh, baby love.
I mean, at $25, it really doesn’t get much better than this.
P.S. Cate & Levi has a new Puppet Theater app that’s free on iTunes if you realllllly wanna add to the fun and games…they’ll love it! I’m all about making old-fashioned toys new again.
