Nova Natural Toys & Crafts {giveaway!}


Nova Natural has been my favorite place to buy high quality children’s toys for many years now, so it’s always exciting for me to share their business with all of you!  If you’ve been reading here for the past few years, you’ve no doubt seen some of our favorite things, purchased from Nova, here on the blog.  I am often asked about our nativity, and then there are our favorite interlocking blocks, and more recently this crossbow that we bought for Silas.  Larkspur is using the high quality watercolor set that she received for her birthday on a daily basis.  Oh, and these sailboats!  They are fantastic, and really last.  I could go on and on!

From Nova Natural:
Nova Natural is a small, family-run business based in Vermont. It was created around the mission of providing natural, wholesome products that encourage every child’s individual spirit to flourish.  We practice sustainability by working with small businesses and artisans to offer high quality, long lasting products with a high play value. That means they don’t get used once or twice and then tossed aside. Rather, they’re made to last, sometimes for more than one generation.



We’re excited to offer some great new products this summer that encourage outdoor play. For days at the beach, we have sturdy BPA and phthalate-free sand toys. Choose from several different sets, including one sized perfectly for toddlers. We have new kits for exploring your own backyard: a botanist’s case, which includes a flower press, magnifying glass and notebook, and an explorer’s kit, complete with binoculars, a compass, rope and a satchel. Also new this summer are outdoor hammocks! Hang one up outside and leave it out–they’re perfect for reading, relaxing or just creating a cozy place for watching the clouds go by. For children who like to work with their hands, we have two new wooden tool boxes with real, child-sized tools. Who knows what you might build this summer? And of course, we are well-stocked with classic toys for summer: kites, boomerangs, sidewalk chalk, bubbles and more!
