If you could make toys yourself, wouldn't this be just what would emerge from your workshop? Wood is actually antimicrobial and much better than chewing on plastic. All made in the Marietta Georgia by Women Owned, Clover & Birch. Taylor is owner, master woodworker, designer, entreprenuer and self descriobed bad a**. I think I need to meet her! And did I mention she pays it forward? I may be collecting another sister here!
