Friends, I’m just tickled about the company I have the pleasure of introducing you to today! Galison/Mudpuppy is a company that offers truly beautiful products. The Galison division of the company was founded in 1979, specifically to work with museums in bringing famous and beautiful works of art into people’s homes via paper products such as notecards, greeting cards, journals, etc.
The Mudpuppy division of the company started in 1992, specializing in puzzles. Since that time, they have expanded to also include educational games, toys and stationery for youngsters. It was the Mudpuppy line that initially got my attention. I had been looking for block puzzles for Darah, but I wanted some that had great designs and that were made of eco-friendly material (and eco-friendly inks). That’s what Mudpuppy offers! Don’t you just love this robot block puzzle! So cool!!! It features 9 blocks that can create 6 different puzzles, all of different cartoon robots!
This is going to provide hours of entertainment for Tim, I mean Darah! 🙂
I really love the various toys and games that Mudpuppy has to offer. Look at how many of their products have won awards! I also love that the toys are simple, yet inspire a lot of creative play. They don’t look like everything else you find in big box stores, so they offer something for the shopper who wants to get an unexpected surprise for a child, as well.
Finally, I’m very impressed with their prices. Almost all of the items in the Mudpuppy line are under $20 (and quite a few are under $10!), making it so much easier to get a super cool gift for a super hot price!
I see SEVERAL things that I’ve got my eye on for Darah as she gets just a wee bit older. Some of my top picks for toddler Christmas presents this year are the Let’s Go Camping sticker set ($8), the Opposites Ring Flash Cards ($12) and the Into Space Playing Cards ($6).
But I’m not done, yet, folks! Going over to the Galison line, I see MANY things that would be perfect hostess gifts or great for your girlfriends! Look at these beautiful file folders ($8.50). I am majorly digging this blue memo pad (on sale for $5.00!). The possibilities are really endless, and you could check several people off your holiday shopping list at this site, for sure!
