I'm happy to join Hallie and friends today for Five Favorites!
I'm going to go with my five favorite Catholic toys for kids. These are my "money and time are no object" dream catechetical toys for my littles (and my godchildren!!).
A Mass Kit
This one is from Our Catholic Corner etsy shop. It's actually pretty reasonable priced.
But if I was really going all out and money was no object, I'd get this Mass kit (and pretty much everything else from this Our Father's House website!!!):
I'm itching to start Catechesis of the Good Shepherd with Little Baby and Sister Stinky...so something like this would be wonderful for a home atrium!!!
Everything from St. Luke's Brush!
The gorgeous saint dolls at Frassencraft...
Even more appealing is the fact that this shop supports a single mother raising 11 children by herself!
Every DVD episode of The Friar that I could get my hands on:
My dad, the beloved "Dzia-dzia", is actually the one who introduced this one to me. It's kind of like a Catholic Mister Rogers/Sesame Street, made in Spain (so you can't watch their lips too closely or you can tell it's dubbed). But it's phenomenal! It moves a slow enough pace for little ones to follow along, and is the kind of soothing but fun show you crave when you're a little kid.
A collection of Waldorf style dolls dressed up as saints:
As far as I know, nothing like this is sold online...but you could probably even buy or make a normal Waldorf doll and dress it up like a saint! I just love how soft and cuddly these dolls are. I tried to making some small Waldorf dolls last year but my technique could still use a lot of work!
I couldn't get the picture for this...but I'd love all the catechetical fabric off of spoonflower. Doesn't that look like fun??
Do you have any favorite Catholic toy recommendations? I could go on forever!
