best of the nest | the wooden wagon

Nearly a week into October and I still keep asking myself where all the time is going. We have been staying busy enjoying everything this season has to offer & spending as much time outside as possible before it gets too cold and we're stuck indoors. Today I'm so excited to share one of my favorite shops for our girls in my Best of the Nest series, The Wooden Wagon. They offer the most incredible selection of all different types of toys, including the Ostheimer wooden animals that both Olivia and Penelope love so much. 

We try to keep the toys in our home to a minimum, and instead of toys and stuff cluttering every corner, we love having lots of open space to play, dance and make memories. That means the toys we do invest in and keep around our home are so important, and The Wooden Wagon is my go-to spot for all things handmade, sparking creativity and imagination in my girls and even me!

I've rounded up a handful of my favorite pieces from The Wooden Wagon, including the new rainbow stacking tunnel we've been enjoying. As soon as it arrived Olivia said, "Wow! It's a rainbow like in Noah's ark!" (her favorite bible story...probably because of all the animals) and both of them love stacking it, making tunnels with it for animals and cars and it looks just as beautiful sitting on a shelf waiting to be played with.

We love countless pieces from The Wooden Wagon, but two of our favorite brands are Ostheimer and Grimm's. Grimm's is most known for their eye-catching, colorful wooden toys that are carefully designed to appeal to children of all ages with their simple and reduced design, beautiful coloring and inviting surface feel. All their toys are created from sustainable wood and are produced by hand in Hochdorf, Germany. When the rainbow arrived, I couldn't believe how lightweight it was and the colors are even more beautiful in person. Anything that has multiple pieces that can fit inside one another or be rearranged in different ways is something Olivia is always drawn to.


I have also shared my love of Ostheimer toys many times before on the blog, which are also made in Germany. We have baskets of them around the house and they continue to be the toys my girls reach for most often; because of their design and high quality and how well they inspire Olivia to imagine and pretend, these are toys I never mind having left out. I also love that there are no small parts or rough edges, making them completely safe for Poppy and even babies younger than her. Being that they are produced in Germany, they are a bit harder to find here in the US and thats why we love The Wooden Wagon so much, because they have the most incredible selection of every figure being made!
