Toys That Grow On Trees

Despite my seeing absolutely nothing wrong with going to the end of the earth in order to achieve a salon-grade blowout...

Despite my lust for designer handbags...

Despite all my other vices that I totally concede to being on the shallow and/or narcissistic side...

I am crunchy.

Not I-don't-wear-deodorant crunchy.

Although if that's your thing, I'm totally not judging.


But I still fit in the crunchy-ish category. (Here's my first post on this topic, if you need a refresher.)

And this post topic definitely qualifies: I LOVE wooden toys.

They are everywhere in this house.

I can't walk through the kids' rooms without busting my toe on one of them.

And this is one of my absolute faves -- The Michigan Baby Teether by Little Sapling Toys:

And this teether is available in the shapes of other states, too.

I bought this back in 2012 for Scotty, actually, and as you can see in the photo of Kennedy above (taken when she was about seven months old), it's still going strong. 

Today the teether looks brand new, just like the day it was delivered, with nary a nick. 

These teethers are handcrafted with hard rock maple, a non-splintering wood, and are naturally anti-bacterial, non-allergenic, and non-toxic. 

All Little Sapling teething toys are sanded satin smooth with no exterior finish.

It was only 12 bucks, which you can't beat with a stick.

And just so you know, this was not a sponsored post.

I featured this item on my own accord because I think it's the bee's knees.

  1. Yay, thank you so much! I'm glad both your kiddos get to enjoy MI in teether form!

    1. You're very welcome! We LOVE LST! Keep up the great work. ☺

  2. I think I am going to have to look into this for a friend of mine in the shape of Wisconsin. Her child needs one of these badly!!!!!

    1. Yes, do visit their web site! If I'm not mistaken, they have most states in stock. And as sturdy as this teether is, her baby will be able to use this thing for the entire time they's teething...


  3. Hmmm, I'm not sure but I think I ordered a couple of teethers from them when Munchkin was a wee babe. (I mean, I have wooden ones, just not sure if that was the company.) They're still around and I can attest to the fact that they DO look completely new and are easily cleanable and all! Sadly, both of my kids have completely ignored teethers... but I still think they're great! (The teethers, I mean, although the kids are too.)

    1. That's one of the biggest selling points, if you ask me: That they don't look like hell after being chomped/ slobbered on...

      Thank you for commenting. ☺
