Design Friendly Toys That My Child Actually Loves

I used to have a vision of a cozy cream teepee surrounded by grey wood toys with splashes of color.  I tried that and my little son had his sights set elsewhere.  My living room now occasionally looks like Fisher Price threw up in here.   However, I have salvaged some design dignity with a handful of toys that Bodie loves as much as I do.  In our play space: 

1.     Hape Wonder Walker  

3.     Pop Up Toy

4.     Blocks - A 30th Anniversary edition from Hape.  For every unit bought, a set is sent to a child in need. 

8.    Circle Sorter

I'd love to hear - do you have picks to add to the list? xo
