Playing Mantis specializes in eco and socially conscious hand made toys from around the world. Goodies like dolls made by women’s groups in Africa and South America, furniture made from reclaimed wood, birdhouses from a small family business in the Catskills and crafts made by adults with disabilities. Their stock is as fascinating as the stories they hail from.
