Thank you to everyone who entered and a huge thank youÂ to Goblin Kids for sponsoring this great giveaway and for giving our readers the opportunity to win a gift card towards some great safe kids’ products!
Goblin Kids, not that isn’t kids dressed up for Halloween, but a toy company that has offered to sponsor a $25 Gift Card Giveaway for the next two weeks! They has some fabulously cute toys! By the way, I asked Saza Carruthers, Owner of Goblin Kids how she came up with the name for her company and this is what she said,
I wanted to associate the name of my company with my childhood (since I grew up in Europe and was starting a business specializing in European toys). The first thing that came to mind was that children’s stories and fairy tales commonly had goblins in them, much more so than here, so I thought it was a cute idea for a name that had some ties to Europe.”
Goblin Kids specializes in safe toys, often of European origin, that are made from natural materials such as fabrics and wood, coated with water based, non-toxic paints and lacquers. They carry a large selection of educational toys that encourage the development of fine motor skills as well as other early learning skills.
They have a large number of Haba toys (a popular German toy company). The Sakrada building blocks http://www.goblinkids.com/sakrada-building-blocks-from-haba.html are very popular and make a great first block set for toddlers.
Goblin Kids say another very popular brand is Jellycat, a British manufacturer of stuffed animals. They just recently started carrying their Cordy Roy line which has become an instant hit. A very popular one is the Dachshund http://www.goblinkids.com/cordy-roy-dachshund-15-from-jellycat.html.
You can find the rest of them at http://www.goblinkids.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=cordy+roy&x=0&y=0.
Kathe Kruse is another German manufacturer that offers a great selection of hand crafted plush dolls, all made in Germany. It’s a bit pricier of a brand since all their toys are hand crafted (to a large degree) and made in Germany, amazing quality. Their new line of 18″ cloth dolls made of 100% cotton and wool is adorable. The dolls’ clothing is removable and reversible to let children create their own combinations. They also have long hair that’s fun to braid and play with. Don’t they look wonderful? The 3 that they have released so far can be found at:
