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.
