Feathering Our Nest

SavvyMom April 8, 2016

Is it the economy, our perpetual need to declutter, or our craving for beautiful eco-friendly designs? Whatever the reason, more and more parents are adopting a ‘less is more’ way of living, and it’s starting to extend all the way into the toy box.
Nest is the kind of store you’ll want to check out if you have a soft spot for wooden and eco-friendly toys. The focus here is on products from Europe and North America (although some are locally made) that are sure to inspire and delight.

Nest’s charming pull-toys, puzzles, stacking toys, spinning tops, cars, sailboats, dolls (and more) of enduring quality are all just waiting to be adopted by a worthy recipient. This quaint store, nestled comfortably on Dalhousie St., could double for Geppetto’s workshop.
