Felted Wool Jelly Beans
These little jelly beans are almost good enough to eat (almost). Made to size, each tiny jelly bean has been needle felted with wool and comes ready-to-gift in a hand-stamped muslin pouch for carrying and storage. Kids will love to add this holiday food item to their play kitchen, or they can simply use them when their pretend play calls for a sweet treat. Each set includes 12 jelly beans in a rainbow mix of brights and pastels. Keep in mind that due to their small size and tasty appearance, these tiny beans are not suitable for children under 3 years of age.
Natural Wood Toy Easter Eggs
These beautiful eggs were an Etsy Front Page Pick and really capture the natural delight of the spring season. The set comes with six beautifully realistic hen eggs made of real wood. Each little egg is hand sanded smooth and then hand-painted with all natural non-toxic soy paints in shades of blues, browns, whites and natural wood. Once dried, the eggs have been sealed with Apple n Amos’ own olive beeswax polish. Perfect for an Easter treat or as a year-round addition to your child’s play kitchen set.
Baby Owl with Bunny Hat
Hoooo is that hopping down the lane? It’s not the Easter bunny, but a sneaky baby owl using his imagination this Easter. This little owl is the size of a small clementine fruit and is hand-knit with luxuriously soft, high-quality alpaca wool and a merino/angora knit hat. You can use this tiny owl as an ornament, office companion, toy, room decoration, baby shower gift and much more — but at this time of year he also makes a perfect Easter basket addition. This Easter bunny… ahem, Easter owl, will delight your child this season and arrives beautifully wrapped in tissue paper tied with ribbon.
Easter Basket Crayons
This adorable set of six handmade Easter crayons will add color and fun to any Easter basket. Crayons are hand-poured, and made from discarded crayon bits collected from local elementary schools. The set comes with three bunnies and three ducks, each nestled in its own wrapper. Gift box included.
Easter Friends Felt Finger Puppets
