Do you remember that feeling of walking into a toy store as a child? It was always a magical feeling. I’m not talking about the bigger box stores, I’m talking about the local store that had the wooden train set set up in the back and that sold classic toys and the atmosphere was full of whimsy.
I recently found Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s and I was amazed that their online shop had the neighborhood toy shop feel. Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s is located in Ottawa but offers their products worldwide.
You will find trusted brands such as Melissa & Doug, LEGO, Cloud b and more. However; what I love about Mrs. Tiggy Winke’s online toy store is the fact that I can find unique products that the bigger box stores won’t have.
I was sent the HAPE BLOCKS Fantasy Castle to review. With all the busy, loud and “flashy” toys out there, it’s nice to get back to basics (did you know that wooden blocks were the number one toy last year?). The block set comes with twenty two painted maple blocks (painted with water based paint). I love how these blocks can spark creativity and inspire your child to use their imagination. With the blocks there are so many possibilities of play (and they’ll probably outlast half the toys your child already has). The HAPE BLOCKS Fantasy Castle also won Parent’s Magazine Top Toy Of The Year. They are truly a timeless gift.
