This Week's Featured Shop: Happy Squash Toys

This week's featured shop is Happy Squash Toys. They make handmade, adorable, safe toys for your little ones. Here is what they have to say about their shop:

Happy Squash Toys began in 2007, when our daughter was about a year old. During that time there was a huge lead scare, and my husband Jim and I were concerned about the safety of our mostly 'Made-in-China' toys. We looked online and found some quality European toys but nothing local, so we decided to try and make our own. Happy Squash Toys was born!

All of our toys are completely handmade, from the design and first cut in the wood to the last tiny details that are painted on. We make cars, animals, games, pirate and viking ships, and most recently play aprons. All of our paints and finishes are made in the USA and safe for children. They are sturdy and meant for active play, and will last for years and years, and through child after child.

One of the best things about making our own toys is that the limits are endless. We're always coming up with new ideas, animals, and games. We always welcome custom orders, or even ideas for new things for our store (the monkey is just one of many requests that became a staple in our store). We truly love what we do!

Our little happy squash is now 2 1/2. She still enjoys those first toys that came out of our workshop. We hope you and any small squashes in your life will also enjoy what we have made.
