All roads lead to Moolka Toys. Whether we're searching for a specific toy or just surfing for gift ideas, we always end up at Moolka's cyber doorstep.
Moolka has an extensive offering of high quality toys, yet the online shop is well-organized. You can browse by age (from newborn to 9 years +), by activity, or by brand (think Vilac, Haba, Sevi and Plan Toys).
This play scale by Haba is a great, simple design and we think it would make a thoughtful gift for a toddler.
Kids can weigh their toys and discover the concept of balance. Did you know that your Blackberry weighs exactly the same as two wood maracas and an Ugly Doll? The play scale is $43.
Our unequivocal favorite is German toymaker Erzi's Play Shop. Stocking and restocking the shelves and bins with play food can entertain a toddler for hours. Beware that Play Shop comes with: 1/2 watermelon,1 pear, 1 banana, 1 bread roll, 1 purple grape (only one?), 1 cheese slice, 1 wooden crate, 1 orange shopping bag, 2 red apples, 3 medicines and 3 cherry tomatoes. That's a lot less than what's pictured, but still hard to resist. It's $235 and currently on backorder.
Besides toys, Moolka also carries a few furniture and decor items. We like this Rug Flower Hearts
one from Haba. Nice color combination. Our one complaint - we need more information! The Rug Flower Hearts looks plush, but is it wool? What are the dimensions?
There's much much more to browse at Moolka Toys. So pour yourself a glass of iced tea and get out your credit card.
