that time again

cover-158November 1. New month, new issue of the magazine on the stands—and not just any issue: our annual review of natural toys. Which means, of course, that the holidays are very soon comin’ down the pike. . .

Shot by NYC/Toronoto photographer Lise Varrette, our new cover photo features a cutie from Toronto named Harmony, holding her beloved Sophie the Giraffe.

When Lise first showed me this photo, I said “Very nice, but we can’t have a plastic toy on the cover!”

Which shows how out of touch I am: Sophie, who has been around since 1961, is NOT made of plastic. Sophie is made of “100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea Tree;” her color comes from food-quality paint. Get the full story here.
