Born at Home Toys review and Giveaway

This is a joint giveaway from the Natural Parents Network and Embrita Blogging. Please find the section marked "Win it!" for the mandatory entry and optional bonus entries.

Born at Home Toys is offering our readers a giveaway of their Happy on the Farm animal set, a value of $28 US.

The Happy on the Farm animal set is a cute six piece farm animal set: a cow, horse, sheep, goat, pig, and chicken. They're the perfect size to fit in his little hands, and their simple shapes and minimal detailing make them easy to handle and identify.

From our reviewer, Emily at Embrita Blogging:

Born at Home Toys is a family owned toy workshop creating natural wooden toys for your little ones. We received one of their adorable Happy on the Farm Animal Sets, and my two year old LOVES them. They're the perfect size to fit in his little hands, and their simple shapes and minimal detailing make them easy to handle and identify.

I like them because they're 99% toys - 99% of the play comes from my son's imagination.

Right now, he's still learning which animals are which and which ones make which sounds, which these toys are great for. But in a few years, he'll be able to use them in any way he deems fit for whatever scenario he's acting out.

Because they're wooden, they'll hold up over time - a bit of polishing now and then and basic cleaning and they'll be good as new. (They're finished with beeswax, so if your little one is still exploring toys with their tongue, there are no harmful chemicals to be ingested.)

Born at Home toys is local to Northwest Arkansas, if you're in the area, and available at their Etsy shop if you're not. They offer a variety of little wooden toys: animals and cars, and have recently added the Gro Tower to their lineup.

These little animals would be equally at home in a discovery basket or a homeschooler's farm set - you won't be disappointed.

  1. (I think my first entry went awry)
    I learned that the toys are designed to be gender neutral!

  2. I also like the star and moon teether.

  3. I would give this to my newest nephew. He's due in June.

  4. I visited the site and the Gro Tower caught my eye, like a hand-crafted alternative to the Learning Tower.

  5. I like the lavender beeswax cream for wooden toys. I've been looking for some beeswax polish and am glad to now be aware of this company.

  6. I love open ended toys. Thanks for doing this review and give away.

  7. I have four children who all love open ended, imagination driven play and would love these.

  8. I learned they are no toxic and gender neutral.

  13. I also learned again that Rebekah and Chris live in Arkansas and we really ought to arrange a visit. :)

  14. These toys look great, I would love to have some for my son Mark to play with! :)
