You should hear the comments coming from both the parents (and even some high school students) over these items. It’s one of those toys that makes adults wish we were still little. Check out the gorgeous tree houses and the squirrel kitchen (this picture doesn’t show how cute it really is!) made from sustainably harvested wood. Many other items arrived from the same company, such as the cute tree block sports car, the classic tree blocks & doll/tree house furniture.
