Great Wooden Toys at Carl & Me and a Special Discount for my Readers!

>> Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Carl and Me is a great online store started by a stay at home dad. I love the story of how it got started. Carl's dad says, "We went to every major retailer and found mainly battery driven, plastic toys that played with Carl instead of letting him play with them. They got boring really quickly and were rarely played with again. He kept playing with his old favourites from relatives in Europe - wooden blocks, cars and trains - and always came up with a bunch of different ideas and stories to play out. The problem then was finding such toys here in the USA and that's when I decided to not only import them but to look for toys of the same high quality right here in the USA."

They carry really unique, amazing toys. I really think "wow", when I see all the great toys, so imaginative, fun and not plastic! You can shop for toys be category or by brand. The Waltertoys are a great line of beginner toys that really caught my eye. Walter toys are made of natural raw materials and are particularly sturdy and child-friendly. Some times these toys look so simple that you don't realize how much your child will love them. I received the Walter Toys - Hammering Bench "Hau-Raus" as a gift for my son Leo when he was about a year and half and I had no idea how much he would love it. He is almost 3 and he still plays with it all the time. It is always a big hit at playgroups. Even my 4 year old daughter likes playing with it! This toy has gotten tons of use.

You will love Carl and Me toys! And here is the best part- the owners have decided to give my readers a special 10% discount, just use code "tees"! They do same day shipping for all toys in stock too so head on over and take a peak at Carl and

I love wooden toys because they are so much better for the environment, don't need batteries, and they last so long!
