First off, I love Etsy because you can find a “cooler version” of just about anything you could possibly be looking for. Whether it’s Christmas decorations, wedding centerpieces, jewelry, artwork or even cloth diapers, you’ll always find something awesome on Etsy that you won’t see in your local department store.
So naturally, when I went looking for the coolest baby entertainment gym on the market, I found it on Etsy.
Studio Mishela produces unique and attractive wooden toys as well as furniture for toddlers and kids. The designer, Gal Shvekey, lives in a small kibbutz near Tel Aviv, Isreal, with her partner and 3 yrs old daughter, who is the inspiration for the products she designs and makes.
When I spotted her gorgeous, solid wood baby gyms, I knew they were special.
About the Baby Gym:
The Wooden baby gym is a folding apparatus for hanging toys and mobiles over the child laying on his stomach or back. The Tripod is made of layers of laminated Beech, which gives it strength despite its gentle structure. It is easy to fold and light for carrying in a special bag which comes with the product. Any parent can hang on this play gym any toys they wish and change them at any given time. Since the Wooden baby gym folds so easily, it is the perfect toy to bring along for a picnic in nature, or a visit with friends whose homes are not equipped for children. While it is not in use, the tripod takes up a minimum amount of space and can be easily stored. Due to the strong materials and building techniques, this product can last for generations. The tripod is coated with European standard natural oil which does not affect the texture or scent of the woods.
Perfect! That was exactly what I had in mind when I envisioned a wooden baby gym. I mean really, who wants those brightly colored, chemical laden, plastic atrocities sitting in the middle of their living room?! No thanks, I’ll pass.
This is waaaay better!
Sleek lines, stylish design and natural materials – what more could you want? This is perfect for those of you that are looking to avoid commercial looking baby gear and are aiming for a natural Waldorf/Montessori style baby nursery. As you can see, this wooden baby gym looks great in my living room and baby loves it!
