This weekend’s giveaway is from Nova Natural, my family’s longtime favorite toy shop.
Nova Natural is a small, family-run business based in the beautiful state of Vermont. Our goal is to be your trusted source for children’s toys and crafts that allow imaginations to run wild, engage curious minds, and foster appreciation for nature. We carefully handpick every item that goes into our catalog, and it’s important to us that we try our very best to offer you fair trade products made with renewable resources. We hope you find beauty and wonder in our toys!
Families are transforming their indoor (and outdoor) play spaces with our Double Playstand Set. Add a child’s active imagination, and a set of playstands can become almost anything—a general store, a spaceship, a cottage, a castle! We recently did a photo-shoot play session using Elsa’s Kitchen under the canopy, flanked by the stands and the kids were completely engrossed! The wind was blowing a bit, so the wooden clips that come with the set came in handy in keeping the rainbow canopy in place.
We recognize that when you share a gift among family members, children get to experience it with those they love and trust. Everyone who hears the sweet song of our Singing Marble Tree is mesmerized, making it a joyous addition to the family home. As you drop the marbles and they wind down the rainbow, it gives off a soft song. Children have a chance to see adults meditate on the falling marble and delight in the pace and timing as a new song is created.
When you choose items for a whole family, whether your own or another, you are giving the opportunity to enrich and more firmly connect the family bonds. Our new diorama-style Nativity Set features colorful, durable figures that are not only beautiful display pieces, but children can engage and act out scenes with them as well.
This year we’re pleased to make gift giving a little easier by offering unique German Gift Bags. Featuring the bustling atmosphere of a European Christmas market, these affordable bags are made from recycled materials and will help make your holiday a little more green.
We invite you to follow us on Instagram where we’re having fun sharing photos we’ve taken as well as photos our customers and friends have shared with us using the hashtag #novanatural.
