I no longer wonder why so many people create treasuries on Etsy. It’s like window shopping, really, really fun window shopping. A friend on Twitter recently asked if I could put together an Etsy Picks list of gifts for a toddler or a small child, particularly including items for boys. The amount of awesome stuff I found is staggering, and I had more than a little trouble editing it down to the items listed here.
Etsy, you never disappoint.
Create a lovely neighborhood for your hot wheels or littlest pet shop animals.
Roll up your crayons for easy travel and pull out in case of waiting room or restaurant emergencies. Or keep them in the roll at home, because those flimsy cardboard boxes never last more than few weeks anyway.
Finally! A fishing game I will 1. be successful at and 2. enjoy. Bonus: if you have cats, this is like two toys in one.
I have a weakness for rainbow colors.
I am definitely ordering this for Isobel when she’s older. This Isn’t just any car mat—it’s your own neighborhood as a car mat. Awesome and educational.

These don’t have to be so lovely to be so useful, but they are.

I also want these. For myself.
Is that wrong?
Scoop them! Sort them! Chase them across the floor!
The with pushable button and adjustable “lens.”
Pardon my drool.
So. Freaking. Awesome.
