We have been busy beavers (that's a Canadian joke...heehee) over here.  You guys continue to rock our world. And we want you to know how much we love that!  So far you all seem to like the new products we have been bringing in.  The Totseat has been a huge hit, and we've already had to reorder inventory. A lot of littles out there are sitting comfortably on their new Cocoon Couture bean bag chairs, and Kinderville is taking over most of your plastic at home.

So how do we top those amazing products?  By finding new ones!

Over July and August, we will be introducing two more lines to The Spotted Monkey.  The first is Children Inspire Design's wall cards.  I absolutely love that they are made from 100% recycled card stock, printed in soy ink, and wrapped in biodegradable celophane.  These cards are not only art, they are teaching tools as well.  

We will also be carrying the PEACE Recycled Bird Mobile.  Hope, opportunity and freedom have long been associated with birds and flight.  These birds are made through a program called PEACE, a grassroots cooperative of women from semi-rural, economically disadvantaged areas in Mexico.  Proceeds from the sale of these products provide income to help lift families from a life of poverty to prosperity and gives them the hope and freedom to fly.

Another product flying into The Spotted Monkey in July is the Songbird Wooden Mobile from Snug.  Snug is based in Hanover Germany and is the company of two amazingly talented women designers.  They believe in using natural materials and mixing simple with traditional.  

We are also busy working on bringing lines of hand crafted wooden toys from Lithuania and Korea.  Not to mention a few others you haven't heard of, yet.

Happy shopping,
