Nova Natural has been my favorite place to buy high quality children’s toys for many years now.  I am always happy to share this space with them.

Nova Natural Toys & Crafts is a small, family-run business based in the beautiful state of Vermont. We hope to be your trusted source for wholesome children’s toys and crafts that promote imaginative play, engage curious minds, and foster an appreciation for nature and family. We carefully hand-select each item featured in our catalog, and it’s important to us that we do our very best to offer Fair Trade products made with renewable resources. We hope you find beauty and wonder in our toys!

We love featuring whimsical and unique costumes and dress up for the fall. Of course, they’re perfect for Halloween, but playing dress up is a wonderfully active, imaginative and thought provoking activity for any day of the season.

We’re happy to offer high-quality costumes that are built to last, like our Royal Princess Costume. This ensemble is intricately detailed with a shimmering bodice, flowing sleeves and an even an authentic hooped skirt. Young princesses will be transported back in time when they slip into this dreamy dress. For the boys and girls who like a bit more adventure, the musketeer ensemble will ready them for whatever may come their way, whether it be a backyard duel or a secret rescue mission. When they don their plumed hat and stealthy black smock, they’ll feel as though they can conquer any foe.

As we enjoy the last few days of warm weather, it’s time to start brainstorming engaging indoor activities for some of those cold and windy days. Our collection of wooden toys and play sets are a great option. The wooden rally car, made in Germany, has cleverly designed axles and rubber rimmed wheels to make sharp turns around any obstacle. It’s a sweet and classic toy for little ones. Our new pretend play laundry set from Poland will provide hours of entertainment on chilly days. Children love pretending to wash, hang, and iron all their doll’s clothes.

Celebrating Saint Teresa of Calcutta {In the Loft giveaway}

My little girls have a small, beloved collection of Sue Dow’s hand painted wooden figures.  Each of them also has a wishlist of those they would like to add to their collections.  They fussed at me recently when Sue sent me St. Teresa of Calcutta and I told them that she was for me!  I love St. Teresa as so many do, and I am excited that Sue has added her to the saints in her shop, In the Loft.  I think most of you who read my blog regularly know Sue’s work, but if not, you can read more about her and her art here.
