It’s getting to be that time of year when we start thinking of holiday gifts.  I’ve used the following catalogs for years and years and have very rarely been disappointed.  Most of the toys and “fun stuff” offered are quality made and last through years.  They are also creative toys that involve kids in the process of playing, pretending, making, and enjoying time well spent alone or with others.  Most are fun for many years and not just for the first few hours they are out of the box.  All have websites where you can browse online or request a catalog.

Hearth Song (make-it kits, pretend, classic toys, outdoor toys)

Timberdoodle (wonderful building and hands-on kits; good homeschool selection)

Greenleaf Press (great for books; good homeschool selection too)

Magic Cabin (gorgeous!)
