Wooden Toys

Woo hoo! *Finally*, wooden toys have made it to the web site!

With the dedicated site back up, I was able to add some really exciting toys to inventory today. Our resident toy tester (my three year old), has been in heaven. We have blocks! And wooden eggs! And bowls with scoops! And acorns! He's absolutely beside himself. :)
