I am super excited to tell you all about this shop! Little Beasties Shop specializes in the most adorable and well made felt & cloth toys I have ever seen! Like, seriously. We received this felt garden a few months ago and it quickly turned into both girls most favorite toy to play with. I nearly cried when I opened the box because it is gorgeous.
One of the reasons I love this set the most is because it gives me a chance to not only play with the girls but teach them as well. When we moved into our house I told Jeremy how badly I wanted to build a garden and start growing some fruits and vegetables. Last summer was too hectic with me being pregnant and then a brand new baby to get anything started which really made me sad! We started planning our real garden around the time our felt garden got here so i got to use it to teach Madeleine all about plants and how they grow. The felt garden has a strawberry plant (with the cutest detachable berries), two carrots, lettuce, beets and turnips. The strawberry plant has pipe cleaner roots (so does the lettuce!) which was perfect for our planting lesson. We planted the main part into the “dirt” (which is made from jersey cotton and can be removed from the box) and I would slowly add new strawberries each day. Madeleine absolutely LOVED it! And of course Eloise enjoyed plucking them off. 🙂 Now when we go out to watch out real “plant babies” as, Madeleine calls them, we bring out the felt garden so Eloise can be included too! That way I don’t have to worry about her destroying the plants because that’s just how she rolls.
There are so many goodies to check out in this shop! We have a monster plush that the girls love so much they fight over it and I can’t wait to get my hands on some of the magnetic letters. Head over to Etsy and follow them on Instagram @littlebeastiesshop to see all of the amazing things she has to offer!
