DOLLY




Foothill Toy Co is a mom-run business based in Boise, Idaho, known for crafting high-quality, low-tech toys that inspire creative thinking & self-expression through open-ended play. Backed by the knowledge that imaginary play is an essential component of child development, our toys are designed to inspire the kind of make-believe that so many of us recall among our fondest childhood memories.  The Matchbox Mice and Friends come in a variety of sweet characters and offer hours of imaginative play for little ones - plus they fit perfectly into a stocking!




Escape Notice Games are perfect for family game nights.  We chose the Stolen at Sea version.  I am so excited to play this game! 

Travel back in time to 1923 as passengers aboard the RMS Aquitania. Sift through maps, old books and photographs to rescue a priceless jewel of antiquity in this challenging, high-stakes puzzle quest.

This is a 60-minute escape room game in a box to play at home. Race to solve an exciting interactive mystery by finding hidden clues and completing intriguing puzzles. Locked document bags are hidden “doors” that move you through the game.

The game works best with 2 to 6 players ages 14 and older. No internet is required. It can be played again so pack it up and pass it on. The clock starts now!

Cloudberries is a UK-based company that creates beautiful, design-led jigsaw puzzles for adults. 

They have these gorgeous stereoscopic 3D puzzles. When I say 3D they're actually anaglyph puzzles, those that use nerdy 3D glasses to make images pop out and come to life.

They're not just great for elegant wall decor, but are perfect for spending time with friends and family. Jigsaw puzzles are just the craze these days since people are looking for fun and relaxing things to do to while away the hours - that's probably the best thing about these puzzles, they're gorgeously stunning gifts that also encourage quality time with loved ones! They also ship internationally so getting their jigsaws should be a breeze.

They also plant a tree for every puzzle we sell (and they have planted 100,000+ to date!). 



The Loyal Subjects – a collectible toy company most recognized for its artful articulated licensed figures – has entered the Fashion Doll category with a completely fresh take…a GAME CHANGER. For Keeps™ is a new 6” fashion doll brand with great fashion play that carries a powerful message of positivity and self-empowerment.

The For Keeps™ concept was inspired by parents’ experiences with their young children, in particular, the impact technology and social media have on kids’ perception of self-worth, gender stereotypes, and the imprinting of critical thought patterns by age 4. “How can a 4-year-old girl be comparing herself to social media influencers flaunting extravagance?” and “Too much screen time is pulling away from the visceral, human engagement needed for developing brains and for honing social skills.”'
For Keeps™ - Ages 4+ with a $12.99 SRP. Available NOW at Target, and Amazon! A perfect gift for this Holiday, a POWERFUL MESSAGE with a great Fashion Doll, packed with surprises!
