Following the theme of cool stuff from amazing local artisans, I thought I’d show you some of the great kid stuff you can buy as an alternative to all… that… plastic… I mean, don’t get me wrong – our house has a lot of colourful plastic toys from big brands that my son loves. But for something a little more unique check out these picks! All are from the Montreal area.
T-Shirt (Translation: I still live at my parents) from bblala
This company has a lot of tongue in cheek t’s that are really fun.
Isn’t this doll so sweet? And even little boys like their dolls to sleep with – and this company has some great more masculine picks.
Such a sweet little blanket to be cherished for years.
I love this little fox which is a great pick for boys or girls.
How cute and unique is this ensemble! I especially love the fox tail scarf.
Bilingual families rejoice! Leave it to a Montreal company to come up with a bilingual alphabet chart.
Teach them to eat their veggies with this cute little kit. They can also pretend to cook with the wool veg!
All the classic animals are there for you to count, point out, and make animals sounds together. It’s a nice colourful modern print.
These bears are mostly for decoration, and are sturdy but the limbs can come off if heavily played with. I still love them and the way each one has a different expression.
A cute little top that is great for boys or girls!
The Damian (3-6 month old) from Milton and Gracie
I love the retro-ish colour of this knitted sweater which will last for brothers and sisters.
I can just see my son playing for hours in this tent, which I imagine stores up flat against a wall or under a bed. This company also does super cute chairs and tables for kids.
Phew! What did I miss! Are there any local artisans that should have been on my list? Let me know!
