What is Made in the USA?

WOW!! There are so many things that are Made in the USA that I had no ideal about. For years I just bought things without even thinking about it, once I started checking where things are made I found out we can get almost everything we need made right here in America. The internet allows us to find anything we want with ease. TherBig Bunny Made in the USA 1e is a shopping site that only has Made in America Stores in it Petriot, it has a lot of unique items. American Made Everything is another shopping site and is also a directory that has stores that carry American Made items. Made in the USA Challenge has tons of stores and even has a Master List of Stores that carry Made in America items.  That is just to name a few there are more shopping sites and stores online that carry American made items. There is a lot of information about American Made products on the internet, just Google it and you will find it. AmericanToyBoutique.com is of course my favorite store for kids. We are always looking for more Kids toys, games, furniture or anything Kids enjoy that are Made in the USA and Eco-Friendly. Most things Made in the USA are safe and well built to last. Sometimes they do cost a little more but if you look at the big picture they are worth it. Buying Made in the USA products also boost the economy and that helps with the unemployment that America is dealing with right now. I am so much more aware now then I ever was before about how important it is to buy American made items. So I try to always look before I purchase.

A Mother and Grandmother

As a Mother and a Grandmother my heart breaks when I see any of my kids or grand kids hurting.  My youngest son and his kids are hurting today and it probably won’t end anytime soon. I know God is in control and they will be fine. I am sure they will be better but it hurts to see them go through it. I think now more then ever we need to be there for them and take the time with the kids to let them know that no matter what they are loved. I have some little American Made Cars that I had bought to display for AmericanToyBoutique.com but I think I will probably play cars with my grandson today. I try to give all my grand kids attention as much as I can but most of them are older and only wants Grandma in short doses and that is OK a little is better then nothing. I love my grand kids with all my heart and all of them know it.

Learning Toys – Made in America

We are always looking for toys that aren’t just fun, but are educational for our children and grandchildren. Children love books and like to be read to. Sesame Street has some great personalized books.  There fun to read and kid’s love seeing their name in a story.  They help teach various things. This Sesame Street Bye Bye Diapers is great to help potty train your child it talks about how Elmo learned to be “go” in the potty.

byebye diapersThere are so many great toys that are learning toys but fun also. My youngest grandson loves learning new things he is  three and at a perfect age to learn. He really gets in the video games which we all know they will have to learn a lot of that stuff in school. I would much rather him just play with his cars and trucks.

Did you know the first three years are the most important in shaping the child’s brain architecture? Children learn more quickly during their early years than at any other time in life. Isn’t that amazing? Learning toys are a great way to teach them in their early years. American Toy Boutique carries a lot of those toys that help with learning how to sort items by size, shape and color. Help them develop visual perception and discrimination skills.

Babies and young children grow, learn and develop rapidly when they receive love and affection, attention, encouragement and mental stimulation, as well as nutritious meals and good health care. It takes a lot of love and attention to raise a little one but there is such a great reward…from a smile or a kiss or a hug or just an I love you it is one of the most rewarding jobs I have ever had!

Toys That Are Educational

When looking for toys most of us are looking for educational yet fun toys for our children or grandchildren. I believe some of the video games can be educational but I still think there is nothing like the a physical toy. Choosing toys that will help children be more creative, adventurous and caring helps them learn more about themselves.

Wooden rattles are a great way to start your infants off with. You can get them finished or unfinished with a naturoil finish to be just right for the baby. Babies enjoy hearing sounds from rattles.

I don’t know toddler that doesn’t like building blocks…..or a car they can push around and their own sounds. I have a grandson that makes every sound a car could possibly make.

Preschoolers are so much fun they want to learn so much. I remember when my kids were small they would put puzzles together over and over. Or I would read them a book until I could recite it without the book.

Board games are a great way to get the family together and actually interact with each other. Most board games can be played with any age children and adults. When you are looking for great American made safe toys and games this holiday season check out http://www.AmericanToyBoutique.com.
