I want to invest in some good toys for DS (he's 3) and elminate some of the plastic and electronic crap in our house. Not that I want to get rid of it all, but seriously, how many flashing light gizmo's does one preschooler need? A friend of mine had this fun puzzle with ABC's that has word/picture flashcards with it and then use use the puzzle letters to spell the word- but it was a gift and she wasn't sure where they got it. I did see the piggyroo.com site someone posted in another thread. What other sites do you like to use to find fun and maybe even slightly useful toys?! Or brands I should be googling or searching for on eBay?

Without a doubt, for us its Nova Natural. Anything they sell is wonderful. We also love the Woody Click wooden farm, Haba toddler blocks ( fit together like Legos but are big and wooden) and Discovery Toys.

Thanks guys! I forgot about Discovery Toys, we own a TON because a friend of mine sells it and I used to buy something everytime she was short meeting her minimum requirement <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'll check out the places you guys mentioned!!

Timberdoodle and Nova Naturals looks very interesting.<br><br>
I like Rosiehippo, For Small Hands, and Oompa Toys. Links below.<br><br><a href="http://www.rosiehippo.com/home.asp" target="_blank">http://www.rosiehippo.com/home.asp</a><br><a href="http://www.forsmallhands.com/" target="_blank">http://www.forsmallhands.com/</a><br><a href="http://www.oompa.com/" target="_blank">http://www.oompa.com/</a><br><br><br>
But to be honest, some of our best toys were random second hand purchases. You can find wooden puzzles and decent educational preschool materials at the Goodwill or a kids resale shop. That said, there is nothing like new toys through the mail. Good luck in your search.<br><br>
