Daily Candy Knows How to Play

Daily Candy is the first place we look when planning a family weekend! They always point us in the right direction.......FUN! Last week they plugged Equator Books, one of our favorite local book stores.  Like us, equator bookstore is "is out with the new, in with the old".  Check out their top vintage kids book collection (above).

Also, Daily Candy invited us to join Alice and the Wonderful Tea Party. An old classic with a "zany update" now is playing at the Santa Monica Playhouse until March 7th.  This is a must see.

5 reasons we heart Plan Toys...

All PlanToys® are made with clean, natural rubberwood from rubber trees which no longer produce latex. To keep the rubberwood pure, no fertilizer is added to the soil for three years before the trees are cut. To strengthen the wood, PlanToys® uses a special chemical-free kiln drying process.
Non-Toxic E-Zero Glue
PlanToys® are assembled using a proprietary, non-formaldehyde E-Zero.
Water Based Dye
PlanToys® does not use dyes containing lead or any other heavy metals. We use only safe, non-toxic water-based dyes on all of our toys.
Recycled and Recyclable Material
PlanToys® uses recycled and recyclable material to minimize our impact on the environment.
Soy & Water-based Ink
PlanToys® uses soy and water-based inks on our printed materials. These inks are more readily biodegradable and can be recycled more efficiently than standard chemical ink.
