This all-natural stacking baby toy by Little Sapling Toys is so basic, so elementary and so graceful. Something etsy offers in spades (if you look in the right places). The alternating maple and walnut rings are both stimulating and calming. The design has so much motion. It’s both beautiful and peaceful. Whenever I wonder ‘why didn’t I think of that?’ and ‘where can I get one?’ in the span of a minute I know the designer did something very right. Whilst my daughter will be wearing green this earth day, I will be thinking green, and trying to live just a little more basic. After all, beauty often resides in perfect natural simplicity.
