Sweet Scarf

I love this monkey scarf from ($25) Also available in bunnies (lots of colors) So cute and makes a great gift. Here is the description:

This monkey scarf is made from anti-pill fleece. It is approximately 31 inches (78 cm) long before tail, so it fits close around the neck. The tail and legs are meant to be tucked through the tab on the back to keep the scarf snuggly around your neck.

Pair this up with our Monkey shoes (now in red or pink) and you have a ready made (hand made!) gift to give. Find ours at or

Kobold Toys Salutes Veterans!

On Veterans Day we thank and honor those who served in the military. There are many ways to talk to your children about this special day...attend a parade in your neighborhood, discuss bravery and freedom, and just say "thank you" to these men and women for their service and sacrifice. One idea Kobold likes is to make a card to thank veterans and send the card to a local VA Medical Center. What a morale booster!

Kobold introduced the new COBI building blocks line on Monday. In addition to the Formula 1 models, Kobold Toys also offers a variety of military blocks for your little colonel or for the military toy hobbyist. Some of Kobold's favorites:

Happy Veterans Day!

Ginger Louise Holiday

Okay, by now you must know that my absolute favorite place to buy Anna's clothing is through I can't even begin to describe the quality, cut and fabrics she uses to make these custom creations. And that she will custom size them for your little girl is just beyond! She has started listing her holiday line, which is very limited. She also is having a blow out sale, be sure to get your favs at reduced prices (I did.!) Here is her new Jubilee, Ferry in Red for Christmas ($34) I have this top in blue and it is divine!!! I want this and will likely get it for Anna!! Here is the Jubilee holiday twirl set (both top and skirt) for $54.00. I have these tops in many colors for Anna and they are fabulous! I have many skirts but not the twirl (yet) but can say that the others are phenomenal so I know this is too. She puts so much into each piece and it shows!

Angels We Have Heard On High

Okay Halloween is officially over, so now the decorating plans turn towards Thanksgiving and Christmas! I love decorating for the Christmas holidays. We started a tradition of letting Miss E decorate her own little tree each year, and it is fun to let her select the ornaments. Some will become keepsakes and others are fun little whims from the Target. I think it is nice to have some holiday decor that the children can touch and even play with through the season. Our little Kobold has selected some adorable pieces that will add to you and your beloved's holiday joy.

Music lovers will love the adorable wooden angel with a violin. She also has friend in the choir who loves to sing, and a friend holding the candle of hope for the season. These wooden angels by HABA are sure to delight. And what a perfect gift idea for your music teacher!

Collect the family of HABA angels for your child's mini- tree, hang from greenery on the mantel, or tie to a holiday gift. With wonderfully unique colors, striped socks and curly hair, these will bring a smile to faces of all ages! Gloria, Felicia, Marina, Lemona, Rosa and Stella are keepsakes that will delight for years to come.

Kobold Toys is a fan of the Angel Dolls by North American Bear Company. Lovably sweet in soft velboa with embroidered facial features, in blonde and brunette, ribbon accent and attached tricot wings. This soft doll is a keepsake friend for baby and is machine washable!
The holidays are upon us, and Kobold will be sharing his and Santa's elves favorite toys for the children on your list. Keep checking our site daily for updates on holiday items and gifts.

Happy Holidays! ~ Ashley
