I asked a little while ago about how I can limit character toys in my home and I now have another question.     This question is for those of you who allow your kids to have a balance of some mainstream toys along with the waldorf type toys. 1- Do you notice a preference for one style over the other? 2- What are the mainstream toys you and your kids like (especially those with toddlers and younger children?). The reason I ask is because family won't shop online...
I have a question. In my ideal world, I'd like 2.5 year old DS to play with all eco friendly and open ended toys. However that is harder for me to accomplish than I had thought it would be. DS's friends all play with mainstream toys and so that's what he gravitates towards. Some of the eco friendly stuff can also be kinda pricey- even on ebay and craigslist. Has anyone had this similiar issue? Does it get harder as they get older? And my biggest question- Has anyone had...
Thanks! I love garden porn almost as much as yarn porn! Off to have a looksie

I'm looking into ordering some fruit trees and was wondering if anyone could tell me what the following terms means? Dwarf on bud Dwarf on M-27 Dwarf on apple on apple seedling on root in liner pots
JudiAU- Yes, saftey is a good point. I used to talk about it all the time when ds was a baby and still mouthing things. My family's take on it is that I am overprotective and raising my son in a bubble. They go between being amused and rolling their eyes. My sister laughs and tells people that "she only likes "organic" toys" I find it hurt me and so I stopped talking about it and now we have all this junk. I don't think that wanting toys that stimulate the imagination...
Ok so I tried to post this question and something happened and it didn't post right....so here it is again, What are your favorite books for children ages 2 and 3? Thank you
Not sure if this is the right place to ask this but, where can I find a few large tree stumps for free or cheap? Thanks!
