Are you starting to think about holiday shopping yet? I'm afraid I'm a little slow and tend to mull over my ideas for a couple months before diving into my list so I'm offering you today a great idea whenever it is you start to think about holiday gift giving.
Anklebiters is a fabulous little independent shop that has toys you'd never be able to find at your local toy store megalopolis. Toys that inspire creativity and are designed to last longer than the week after Christmas.
Take, for example, the beautiful little personalized paper dolls. Simply send in a photo of your child, boy or girl, and they'll paint it in heavy duty water color paper, seal it and make it into a perfect little doll with a cute wardrobe that you'd never be able to find at Toys R Us.
If paper dolls aren't your child's thing then maybe your little marauder would prefer their very own pirate map that is really too cute for words.
It rolls up into a portable little felt roll--perfect for busy days of pillaging and plunder. Good for a stocking stuffer or party favor.
It's not a huge store but the things they stock are just so sweet--like this drawstring back pack pictured below or the felt motorcycle mat for motor cross on the go. There are even beautiful watercolor note cards and a small selection of children's clothing. Fun stuff--that'll take a bit off your shopping list!
Anklebiters has kindly offered a set of their personalized paper dolls for one of you good people, simply follow the directions below and if you win you'll get to send in a photo of the boy or girl of your choice and have a set of dolls made to order.
