Yeeee Haw! Time To Head To The Farm!!

Okay, just kidding. The Husband has quite convinced me to head to Montana or Idaho to live on a farm. Not yet. Lord knows he does show me some amazing houses every night. But so far my toes are still firmly planted in the sands of Sunny California.

This farm is doll size. From Timy the Wooden Farm House Playset is a Barn Horse Stable WITH accessories!! 

Wooden farm house set

There is a lot that I really like about this farm set. First, it challenged 6-year-old Alice to put together. Second it’s sturdy. This set is solid and heavy. It will last through several generations of children.

The bright colors are very inviting to play with. There are gates that open and close. Alice can easily remove the roof in case she wants to play in that particular area. Wooden Farm Playset

The entire wooden farm set arrives in one large flat box. The instructions are easy to follow and use. Alice put the farm together with very little help.

Each and every piece was wrapped in foam so that each piece, especially the painted areas are in perfect condition when they arrive.

The farm set arrives with 15 different accessories; 2 dolls, farmer and his wife. Or as Alice calls them NaNa and Pop Pop.  6 farm animals, rooster, cow, horse, sheep, duck and a pig. Each one is painted with a cute face.

There are also fences that move. 1 tractor, 1 ladder, 2 hay-bales and 2 water troughs.

The farmers can ride on the tractor and the horse. Wooden Farmer set

This set is well made. The pieces are chunky and easily held by little hands.

This set really promotes imaginative play! Which is really important with 63 days of Summer Vacation left!! Whaaaaaa??? Sixty-three days!? What am I supposed to do with this kid with soooooo many more days?!!?  YIKES!!!

This farm set is suitable for Ages 3 and up.


None, the set was fun to put together. Alice loves playing with the set using both the enclosed wooden dolls and her other little dolls. I’m excited because I get a break while she plays. HOW could I possibly whine about that!?

Well made, sturdy, bright, fun and cute as all get out. No whines here!

Surprizeamals Series 4 Now Available! AND A Contest!!!!!

I’m tellin’ yaSuprizamals Alice is one giddy little girl! Her obsession with blind bags is at an all time high! Her Surprizamals collections is growing like crazy. She sees them in the store and goes nuts! (yes, NaNa is a sucker)


Surprizamals are cute, cuddly, palm sized stuffed toys.


Suprizamals wants YOUR help!

You design the next cute and cuddly creature to join our line-up! The Grand Prize Winner will have their design become part of the Suprizamal family and the top 3 submissions will win the entire Series 6 collection!

Simply fill out the form HERE and get going!

Here is 6-year-old Alice’s submission: Rosie Suprizamal

This is Rosie
Favorite color is Maroon
She was born March 28
Rosie loves to play with all of her Surprizamal Friends. She loves snuggles and cuddles and hates milk.

How cute is Rosie!??!  I love that Alice even included her name, favorite color and what she likes and of course doesn’t like. It’s so funny that Alice and Rosie have the same likes and dislikes!

Season 4 Surprizamals are just as soft, snuggly, teeny-tiny, adorable stuffed animals as Season 1, 2 and 3. These cuties are little surprises that fit into a plastic surprizaballs. Which I have to say provides endless entertainment for Alice. She will load up the Surprizamals into the Surprizaballs and do mock videos for all of her ‘fans’ on YouTube. (By fans I mean The MaMa and The NaNa.) The surprizaball clicks tightly closed each time. I believe the colorful surprizaball will last as long as the Surprizamal itself!

Surprizamals are extremely soft. The eyes are strongly attached to each Surprizamal. Once again, I tried to pull off the eyes and Alice freaked out yet again!! But, NaNa has to know if the eyes are securely fastened or not. But, she again screamed at me: “NONNNNNNNN! What are you DOING?!”

I really love the eyes on the Suprizamals, full of beautiful glittery color.

As with Series One, Two, and Three of the Surprizamals the ear tag MUST stay ON according to Alice!! Otherwise we will forget who they are, when they were born and their favorite things. Once again, good point kid!


Alice has a whine for this set of Surprizamals. She not only opened a two of one kind but also three of another. I had to explain that is the point of a blind bag. You just never know what you will get inside, besides, when we play with them can call them TRIPLETS and TWINS!! That seemed perk her right back up.

I don’t have any whines. Alice has fun opening them up, they are cute as all get out. Fun to play with and cuddle with too. They are also super cute sitting on the shelf side by side.
