Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide: Day 5

I know I’m not alone in noticing that toys these days are getting cheaper and cheaper.  This is why we are doing what many of you out there are and looking toward classic toys and gifts this holiday season. 

Maukilo When I think of high quality and classic toys, I certainly think of Maukilo.  Long-time readers will remember Maukilo from our 2009 gift guide when we reviewed the wonderful Rody Jumping Horse or from this summer when we introduced the beautiful Fay Finja HABA doll. 

For those of you who are already familiar with Maukilo, you are likely thrilled to pieces to see the word “giveaway” in this post title.  But for the rest of you who are new to the site, I’m really excited to introduce you to Maukilo, one of our favorite online retailers ever.  And the fact that we get to give you a chance to wrap up some of this goodness this Christmas?  Well, that’s almost too good to believe.   

Owl This love we have for Maukilo could be due to the fact that it is actually owned by HABA, which just might be the coolest toy manufacturer ever.  Seriously, ever.  Maukilo offers the largest selection (about 1,500!) of HABA products in the U.S. as well as carrying a huge selection of heirloom-quality toys that we adore. 

Bla-h-logo This year we are focusing on Blabla for our Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide and bringing you an adorable handmade bunny that has won all of our hearts.  The Blabla Basil Bunny is a great example of a return to the classic gifts we loved growing up and a welcome change from the cheap stuffed toys that crowd most toy store shelves. 

MediaCABTV1YS Blabla’s Basil Bunny Knit Mini is a 12 inch knit striped bunny that is made by Peruvian artisans.  I simply adore the fact that the Basil Bunny is handmade and that each Blabla bunny is truly unique, just like your little one.  It is made of 100% natural cotton and made with non-toxic dyes so you don’t have to worry about your little one falling in love with it and covering it with kisses and love.  In fact, it is even {slightly} understuffed for this reason, making it even more snuggle-able and cuddly. 

Of course, all the Blabla handknit dolls and stuffed animals are completely adorable, which is why we think they are the perfect gift for any babies on your list this year.  Naturally we’re picturing our Blabla bunny being carried by his floppy ears for years and years to come and seeing the love develop between baby and bunny and our hearts are melting.
