I don’t know about you but I’ve always been obsessed with wooden toys. To be honest, way before becoming a mom. There is something about them that has always gotten my attention. Maybe it’s their timeless designs? They always seem to have this special handmade look that feels extra special. I mean, you know how much I love DIY stuff so I guess me loving these things comes naturally. The fact that some kids brands are trying to bring back that look, even on modern toys, makes this new mommy very happy. Companies like Giggle have a whole selection on wooden toys that I happened to come across while at a department store, so of course I came home with some HA! Anyways, it was only a matter of time till we made something for our little guy, which is how this DIY wooden baby gym came to be. Truth be told, we made it when he was just a few weeks old and seeing him play with it now (that he can actually enjoy it) it’s extremely rewarding. We got the idea from this site and the toys from Amazon. I originally was going to make the toys but once I added up the materials it was cheaper to order them. Hope he enjoys this for years to come. Who knows, maybe it will be passed on through generations? A girl can dream a little. What do you think? Aren’t handmade things fun? I think baby DIY’s are becoming my new faves.
