While my home has seen its fair share of battery-operated toys that never want to turn off, I’m proud to admit that my daughter prefers her cute little handmade cloth block my godmother made for her first birthday.
If your kids don’t have a handy godmother, we think this charming organic cotton baby cube from Sons and Daughters will certainly suffice. It’s not just entertaining (at least for a baby), we love the story behind it–each cube is hand-embroidered by Southeast Indians participating in a fair-trade workers’ cooperative. The artisans are guaranteed fair wages, health and retirement benefits, and secure employment year round. All while making something that will make children halfway across the planet happy.Now if that’s not a win-win situation, I don’t know what is. -Kristen
