SFP 135: Choosing Great Toys [with Lizzie Assa from The Workspace For Children]

choosing great toys

Buying new toys for our children can be exciting--but it can also be overwhelming. There are so many options out there and our children are inundated with marketing materials. Today I am chatting with Lizzie Assa from the Workspace for Children. She and her family buy toys outside of the mainstream options--that means they lean towards simple, open-ended toys made of more natural, non-plastic materials.

We are chatting about buying toys that are durable and will hold the interest of children across different ages, genders, and interests.
