Vendor Feature: Flying Zoo

I've been writing features for the Handmade Holiday Bazaar blog on the vendors who will be at the show. I found the Flying Zoo a while back when I was just surfing Etsy and was pleasantly surprised to find that she's local. She was also a finalist in the Etsy Handmade Kids Contest, so I've been keeping my eye on her and am really glad that she has a spot in the show! Because this is one of my personal favorites I thought I'd share with you here as well... in case you're not keeping up with the HHB blog :)

I'm so excited about having the Flying Zoo at the Handmade Holiday Bazaar! I'm particularly fond of wood toys. There's something about the simple aesthetic appeal that owning a hand crafted wood toy can bring. All those flashing buzzing singing plastic toys just entertain/distract children... wood toys are engaging, they're really playing, using their imagination.

Monika started making these wonderful mobiles more than 15 years ago.

Come out to the Handmade Holiday Bazaar to pick out a meaningful toy for the little ones on your Christmas list. After all, do you think they're really going to be passing that Sponge Bob video game down to their own children some day?!
