Wooden toys and mutlicoloured fizz
Fizz? Why fizz?
Beacause my imagination reconnected me to my inner child the other day when I wondered into this beautiful wooden toy shop. I literally FIZZED. Bubbled. Pop pop pop.
My Inner Child is never very far and always one to fizz when motivated.
This dream like boutique is on my absolutely FAVOURITE avenue in Paris: boulevard Malsherbes in the 8th arrondissement here in Paris. The name of said wondrous boutique: Le Bonhomme de Bois
The toys are all handmade, a lot of them are fair trade and also teach kids about ecology, respecting the environment and why that is important (I can’t stress how much I drum that into my son every day) and also about different cultures, fairness and diversity. You know, all the BEAUTIFUL things we often seem to forget about on our planet Earth.
If you can’t make it there, check out the website above and enjoy this little tour with me. It made me happy because all I wanted to do was play with these beautiful objects and I did, succeeding in escaping from my little anxieties and problems. A lovely state to rediscover.
I will make sure I plunge back into more often.
