Making Believe

My favorite two favorite quotes have always been:

“Reality is for people with no imagination.”

“Wakers have but one world in common. Dream have each a world of their own.”

I think there is nothing more precious than imagination and love seeing my son discover make believe. In the last couple months it has become a regular occurrence to find him playing hide and seek was dragons and telling monsters about the last cartoon he watched.

The things featured in this gift guide really caught my attention because they leave play open ended, leaving plenty of room to make believe.

The Etsian artists featured in this gift guide are:

Dadswoodentoys, LittleFluffStuff, TheFarmhouseBoutique, acornhunter, FriendlyFairies, ForeverandAfters, abunchofsheep, doggiepiggie, sweetiepiebakery, willowbaus, Myokkia, smalltowntoys, WoodClinic, seventywostitches, cherlyasmith, MerrilegsToyCo, Pilgrimage, and littlewingfaerieart

and they are only a handful of the great toys I found while putting together this gift guide. It was hard to pick.

    The gift guide looks great. Thanks so much for including our camera. In regard to the remaining days, have you considered something about elves and the workshop? Maybe diy toys to “make believe” with ie. tools, etc. Thanks for the lovely blog. Talk to you again.
