You know me.
You know how I LOVE to find different, eco-friendly, and handmade items.
Can’t wait to tell you about Pixiekids Toys who hand sews with Eco Felt!
This Breakfast in Bed set was designed just for me! Well Melisa, may tell you different, but she knew I loved her breakfast food and didn’t want any small pieces for baby (like strawberries) so she designed The Baby Safe Breakfast in Bed. Isn’t that clever?
Can I tell you what is even more clever? Guess what the food is made of?
Yes, felt. But it’s eco-felt! Made from recycled plastic bottles!
How did Pixiekids Toys get started?
Around October, I decided that since money was tight with one income, I would try to make as many Christmas gifts for the kids and nieces and nephews as I could. I started with the eco-felt fruits and veggies for my baby, and it kind of took off from there!Â Before I knew it, I started an Etsy shop and my business has been growing very fast. I’ve been able to place some of my items in shops around the U.S. and Canada in addition to my Etsy shop, and have been commissioned to make a large custom order for a company in California in just the past couple of months.
As soon as our breakfast set arrived the grocery game began with all the kids who were over at our house that day. O’Bear is in charge of the play kitchen and shopping cart in our house so he made sure the food went right where it belongs.
What is his favorite part of his new toy? The cinnamon roll! It SMELLS like cinnamon!!
Let me show you some more of my favorite items.
I need a girl!
I just want to eat those eggs right up!
Awesome huh? Each of her items are hand stitched to perfection and take many hours to complete to get each and every detail just right. LOVE it!
Melisa is a crunchy mama in many ways ~ use cloth diapers, breastfeed, make my own baby food, buy local and organic food when possible, eat healthy, reduce/reuse/recycle, care about the environment and reducing my carbon footprint, and I co-sleep with my baby.
And in her business besides using eco-felt for her toys, she uses recycled materials in her packaging and in all of her business supplies as well! Way to go Melisa!
Would you like to WIN $20 and buy whatever you want!
She has lots of great items ~ more than just food too!
Pixiekids Toys sent me a breakfast set for this review but I was not compensated in any way for the post and all opinions are my own.
