One thing I’ve always said is that I won’t let my kids have too many toys — LOL!

Obviously, I know in the back of my head that I really won’t have total control over how many toys my children end up with — especially if other people buy them the toys :)

However, I’ve always had a weakness for wooden toys — and specifically wooden blocks. Nora already has 2 full sets of wooden blocks… but that didn’t stop my from oooing and aaahing over these absolutely gorgeous blocks from the Sincerely Abi Etsy Shop.

I suppose I like wooden toys because they fit my “farmhouse style”, they are timeless, they are more quality than plastic, and they usually don’t have a gazillion little pieces that will get lost or broken.

And these handmade wooden blocks are just the cream of the crop in my opinion… they are all so unique.

Abi hand-makes them, each with different colorful paper and a gorgeous distressed finish. They look like they could have been my grandma’s blocks!

I can’t wait for Nora to get a little older so she can start playing with all her blocks.

Aren’t they just adorable!

    Growing up I loved playing tea party with my little glass tea set; Mom would make us strawberry or apple cinnamon tea (my sister and I used to fight about who got to choose the flavor) and we’d have cookies and apple slices!
    We also had a set of wooden blocks my dad made for us and we built “houses” with the different rooms.

    The favorite toy in our house is Mega Blocks. All of the kids enjoy playing them together, girl or boy, 1 or 7, they all enjoy the colorful blocks. Although, they are quite a big deal to store away nicely.

    My favorite children’s toy is actually a set of blocks. I don’t recall the name of the set, but it was made by a German company and when put together in a 4×3 rectangle, each side made a picture.
