Being stuck in the house is simply no fun at all. We are looking for new toys that will give our children experiences that will not only keep them busy, but also teach them at the same time. Emily Murray, owner of Modern Natural Baby in Ferndale, sent me a few of the most popular toys for spring and summer.
First, let me share that I have not received any compensation for this article. I have been a long time customer of MNB (Modern Natural Baby), from my first cloth diapers, to a recent puzzle purchase, MNB has been a great resource for our community, providing classes, information, Michigan based products, car seat technician advice and installation with car seat purchases, and eco-conscious products every family will love.
Our new social and shopping landscape is evolving with the pandemic and trying to figure out how to keep everyone safe. MNB has shifted to an online shopping experience with free shipping (for orders over $35), local delivery (within 10 miles), or curbside pickup.
If you are looking to breathe a little bit of fun into your family’s shelter at home experience, try some of these great toys.
