Announcing our New Catalog....and Lots of New Choices!

Yippee!! Our new catalog is complete. Finally. It is always soooo much fun finding new products and creating our new catalog...and always lots more work than I think it's going to be!

We have lots of great new products that I think you will love....we do! Products that are beautifully made...the highest quality...built to like we remember from our childhood.

My husband still has a toddler wagon filled with blocks and I still have my old doll furniture from our childhoods! Each are more than 40 years old, and they still look like new. (Watch future blogs for photos!) What wonderful memories they evoke and how great to be able to pass them through generations! Those are the kind of toys you'll find at Rosie Hippo!

This year, more than ever, I have been thinking about value. Not only because it's holiday shopping time and I own an online toy store, but because of my son Ethan and how much I want to give him things that last. And when I say things, I don't really mean just things...I mean memories and experiences and everything that goes into shaping a person who values who they are and what they have.

I am sure you are like me and have been inundated already with holiday shopping offers that focus on low prices, free this and free that. And I know how important price is these days, when money is so hard to come by, and so hard to hold on to for so many families. But I really wish we would also think about value and investing in things that last.

When I think about value, I am reminded of that Oscar Wilde quote about cynics: a person who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. It is true that we do live in a cynical age, but there are things that endure and their value is beyond measure.

There are so many wonderful choices on the website...many beautiful new items...many long-time favorites...and right now we have over 200 toys that are under $25. Each are well-made, natural toys -- many handcrafted or made by caring manufacturers -- that will last well beyond the holiday season. These are the kinds of toys I like to give and get and I know I am not alone. We also have some new handcrafted play kitchens and doll furniture made by Amish artisans that are beautiful pieces that will truly last for generations, and I hope they find a home and provide a teachable moment about value to a child.

Here's a sneak peek:
