One thing I love best about doing this blog, is that I can use it to promote both mom-owned businesses and mom-made toys. PAX Baby is a the creation of Jillian, a stay at home mom with 4 children under 5 years old.
Her store features products that help make child-raising a peaceful experience (or, something a little bit closer to it). She sells beautiful Beco baby carriers, cloth diapers, pretty swaddling blankets and phthalate-free, BPA-free, PVC-free bottles - and TOYS! The selection includes Sarah's Silks play silks, costumes and canopies, play clips, colorful cloth balls and blocks, Yellow Label Kids play foods, and handmade treasures by That's So Childish.
Yellow Label Ice Cream Rattles (3 for $27)
Toys from Yellow Label Kids are made by hand by an artisans who are paid living wages, in accordance with Fair Trade practices.
That's So Childish is a line of dress-up clothing and play things handmade by Blue Reid. They are lovely and expensive, but perfect for a special birthday gift.
Magical flower wands ($12)
What a beautiful way to wish for spring!
Handmade Waldorf inspired doll ($50). The doll is filled with organic millet infused with organic lavender essential oil. Head and hands are filled with unbleached wool, and the hair is crocheted from alpacha yarn. The body and hat made from 100% recycled sweater. Requires regular hugging!
Mini-princess hats ($20)
Jillian primarily works on PAXbaby.com during nap-time, so the shopping cart feature hasn't been added yet, but will be soon. In the meantime, to place your order or make an inquiry, you can email her at PAXbaby@msn.com or call at 805-708-2500 and ask for "Mommy".
