If you have a kid on your shopping list under the age of 12, I can almost guarantee that the word “LEGO” appears on that list at least once! Though not made in China, there are no LEGO bricks or pieces manufactured in the USA. Well no need to stress if you have taken the […]
Gifts that inspire creativity and learning are gifts that keep on giving. At any age, a toy that engages the mind and the hands of a child is the key, not only to learning and creativity, but to the realization of self potential.

Here in New England, the lowering of the temperature outside signals the time to break the fall/winter clothes out of storage. Of no surprise to me, my soon to be 5 year old daughter, Sophie, had a huge growth spurt over the summer and outgrew most of her clothing from last year. A couple of […]
Seven Acre Toys is a small family run company located in Providence, Rhode Island that makes classic wooden toys with a modern twist.
