The final week of holiday shopping is upon us! That means that if you still have gifts to buy for friends and loved ones, your time is winding down. In order to assist, we’ve reached out to a wide variety of local shops, stores, and boutiques to find out which of their three most popular “must have” items can still be found on their shelves.

Next we have three suggestions from Alissa DeRouchie, Owner of Sprout Soup, a natural family store.

“For Babies – Sophie the Giraffe: Since the 1960s Sophie has been lovingly made in France of natural rubber, and children throughout the years have enjoyed her classic look and soft feel. She is colored with food colors, making her a safe and satisfying toy for teething babies.”

“For Toddlers – Another favorite is the Bilibo Toy Seat. Often parents don’t know what to do with this funny-shaped toy, but give it to a child and they are instantly drawn to the color, shape and fun! Most kids will instantly sit down in it, spin, rock and roll as if it were a small rocking chair. It isn’t hard for children to find many more uses for the Bilibo, and older kids will have fun using it as a sled in the snow!”

“For Everyone – Building blocks are a quintessential piece of every toybox. We have found Keva Planks to be entertaining for children and adults of all ages! In fact this is one of my husband’s favorites, he has built bridges, ball runs, and played games with our kids using these simple wooden planks. We’re looking forward to playing Keva Plank games with our extended family this Holiday.”
