Look what arrived from the States today! It was the rest of my Christmas shopping for the girls. This lovely package arrived from Quiet Hours Toys. I am so happy to have finished my on-line Christmas shopping, especially with the Royal Mail postal strikes we are experiencing at the moment. I buy all the childrens gifts on the internet because the natural toys simply aren't availble in regular shops on the high street in the UK. Yes, natural toys can be bought from some UK high street shops, but they are usually mass-produced wooden toys, very brightly painted and more often than not won't be handmade. What I like about both Quiet Hours Toys and another of my favourite on-line stores Myriad is that the toys are usually handmade by an artisan or crafter, are Fairtrade or are made from a small company. I love supporting handmade, Fairtrade and small companies.
