Win a fab prize and toy ideas

This blog post is by Nicola Baird sharing ideas about thrifty, creative and eco-friendly ways to raise children. This post gives you a chance TO WIN a fab fair trade toy worth £40 that stirs up any child’s creative cooking skills. For more info about gifts and toys see my book Homemade Kids, with lots of ideas about parenting, click here.

My favourite toys when I was small are still with me – a teddy bear that my mum was bought by my dad, and a rather battered donkey, Eyore. I made both these toys clothes, slept close to them (into my 20s…) and clearly have failed to pass them on to my own children. Although they are allowed to admire them!

So this fabulous competition for a fair trade soft toy (see pic) from the website  Weaving Hope will hopefully introduce you (or a child) to a very special toy and a place to find similarly lovely items. For starters you could win a rather fab cloth cooking set for your own kids, or a friends’ child or even offer a fair trade toy to your nearest nursery or school reception class. Read on to find out how.

Weaving Hope  – beautiful and unique fair trade soft toys for children
Weaving Hope is a small, ethical and environmentally friendly family business.

We have always tried to avoid the ubiquitous indestructible plastic for our children. It has never been easy and we were delighted when we came across Fair Trade toys that were the winning combination of gorgeous and handwoven cotton.  Desirable and Worthy? Surely not?

We have developed a large range of soft toys from play sets to dinosaurs and our own lovely fairy princess rag dolls, Ella and Bella. We also produce a large range of bags and aprons, hand made from our handwoven cottons and in a great range of colours and designs.

If you want to find out more about how our toys are made and the communities we support, or become a part of what we are trying to achieve by buying something for a bright ray of hope you know, visit our website:
