Week of July 3rd - 9th


Due to the holiday weekend, this week's post will be short and sweet. Very sweet! As soon as I discovered The Polka Dot Tot Spot, I was smitten with Heather's whimsical designs. Hope you enjoy!

The Polka Dot Tot Spot was created by Heather, a stay-at-home mother of two, from Central Illinois. Discouraged by all the toy recalls after the birth of her daughter, she set out to make her own safe toys, creating a set of Jingle Balls and Cloth Blocks. They were such a hit with her little girl that she began making them for friends and eventually started selling them. The Polka Dot Tot Spot has provided a way for her to earn money working from home, while doing something that she loves. She jokes that it also helps her support her fabric addiction! Her favorite aspect of the job is hearing how much her young customers love playing with her handcrafted toys. In addition to her Jingle Balls and Cloth Blocks, be sure to check out her colorful banners and appliqued shirts.

Enter to win a Cloth Jingle Ball or a set of Cloth Play Blocks from The Polka Dot Tot Spot!
Just visit the Etsy store and comment to this post on your favorite merchandise! Winner to be selected by random drawing. Deadline to enter is noon, EST on Wednesday, 7.9.08. Contest open to US residents only.

I love the jingle balls! The fabric is adorable and I can just imagine that the little jingle it makes as it rolls is equally as sweet!

Tara said...

The blocks are my favorite. I really love the blue/green/frog ones and the purple ones.

I found the Polka Dot Spot before from your Mother's Day giveaways and after I found them I told everyone I knew! My sister and I proudly ordered our baby girls a ball and block set!

So my favorite item from Polka Dot Tot Spot would be of course the jingle balls/blocks but I also love the Birthday banner!

My favorite are the Groovy play blocks. As a mom with a 4-year old I can tell you that these will never get old. Building blocks are great, especially those that don't make noise when toppled over!

I think that the birthday shirts paired with the matching birthday banners would make a really unique idea for a first birthday celebration! Sadly, it's too late for my 3. Maybe she will expand her line to birthdays up to preschool-aged someday?
