Looking to get some safe toys for little Alexander. What websites do you use and trust for purchasing? I'm looking for good prices, too. :

I've ordered from Hazelnutkids.com. They have nice toys and seemingly decent prices.

I've gotten wooden rattles, toys, etc. both from Hazelnutkids.com and Tinybirdsorganics.com. I tend to prefer Tiny Birds but both are good. Have fun!

I've ordered from www.atoygarden.com several times. I think they have a great selection and the customer service is wonderful.

I adore Oompa.com. Amazingly good customer service, and a fabulous selection! Nice rewards program, too.

I love atoygarden.com. They have fast shipping and great customer service.

Also, I always do a search on a new "green" directory called TheGreenSeek.com. They have almost everything "green" and eco-friendly you could imagine. It is a new site but is growing and very helpful to me.

I use oompa almost exclusively because it gives the country of manufacture for all the toys they sell. Lots of wooden toys are mic.
