My Thoughts:

I can't remember when I first discovered the Dress Me Up shop, but it has been on my radar for quite some time–one of those things I had stored away in my memory for the days when my next baby arrived, or when I needed a shower gift for someone special. I am always drawn to simple, classic baby toys and I love the "new take" that Dress Me Up puts on the classics. And it is purely icing on the cake that they are a small company, making handmade toys from organic and sustainable materials. After having the privilege of emailing back and forth with Tressa, I'm so happy I can share her amazing shop with all of you. 

One of Tressa's Organic Cloth balls is sitting on the bookshelf in Birdy's room waiting for the days when her little hands are coordinated enough to grab and play with it. And I can pretty much guarantee that when the time is right, I'll be adding one of the Rabbit Rattles or Teething BonBons to her toy basket as well.

  1. Oh goodness! How perfect! My little Imp (who will, tomorrow be the middle child instead of the youngest!) just adores balls. I learned needle felting so that I could make him soft, natural balls to play with.

    I can’t wait to dive into that website. Look out budget, I’m here to destroy you! (:

  2. Those balls are beautiful! This company will be bookmarked for sure for future baby gifts (both our own and others).

  3. These are really cute! I LOVE that they are organic and made in small batches to ensure quality. Reminds me of how people say that the key ingredient to their food recipes is love. Things like that do make a difference!

  4. I love the fact that it is ‘mama-made’! How great to support other moms who make a great product. My little one would LOVE a new ball, they are one of her favorite toys. Thanks Molly!

  5. so adorable! things like this are so timeless and wonderful to keep and love! congrats on the amazing ideas and great link! thanks

  6. These look too cute. I’m having my first baby in July so I think these would be perfect. I bet Birdy is going to love them too.

  7. Ohhh, these are wonderful! Gorgeous to see, and I bet they *feel* gorgeous! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

    BTW, do you know of the book Catherine, Called Birdy by Karen Cushman? Every time you mention your Birdy, I think of it. It’s wonderful!

  8. These are lovely. I was just remarking today to Ali that I can’t believe we don’t have any balls for Arlo yet! He’s at the perfect age — grasping well AND sitting! Today he was playing with some potatoes, which certainly do the trick, but something a bit more permanent would be nice too 🙂

  9. This shop looks delightful! I am in the process of opening a new, nature inspired drop in “playcare” facility and items from this shop will be a must!!

  10. All these giveaways are fantastic. This looks like a great company. Your blog is getting me all excited for this baby we are having!

  11. we are slowly getting rid of all our plastic toys around our home. these balls are so cute! i would love to add one to our new non-toxic collection 🙂
