    Uncle Goose Language Blocks

    Lena and Ole searched far and wide to find high quality toys made in the United States and Scandinavia.  We are again stocking something parents, grandparents, and great grandparents will love for those special children in their lives.  These blocks (like the old-fashioned wood blocks some of us played with growing up) are high-quality Michigan basswood and made in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  We have blocks in stock that can help your little ones start to learn a language at a time when it's easier to learn — when they are learning to speak.  The blocks have letters and pictures that correspond with Norwegian alphabet.  The blocks are $43 plus shipping. There are 30 blocks in the Norwegian set. They are of the quality that will be handed down to the next generation. Call 414-745-4362 to order – shipping is extra. Order early to have them for Christmas gift giving.

    Birgitte Frigast Porcelain Babies are adorable!

    Bertram and Fie


    If you love to collect dolls, you should consider this wonderful collection created by Danish designer, Birgitte Frigast.  Birgitte Frigast designs every face herself and, with the help of a doll sculptor, creates the final look. The personality and clothes of the pixie are also designed by Birgitte Frigast, down to the very last detail. There is nothing left to chance in the production process. Birgitte Frigast checks everything from the initial stages until the pixie is finished and has "come to life".

    The porcelain, which the head, hands and feet are made of, is of a quality normally only used by the likes of Royal Copenhagen. The porcelain mould is only used 30 times, after which time it is discarded and replaced by a new one. This means that our pixies always have 100% perfect features.  The faces are different, giving each doll a different personality.  After glazing the porcelain is fired three times to ensure colour-fastness and prevent fading.

    All of the figures come in a beautiful gift box which is not only attractive packaging but also provides the pixies with a good resting place if they are not to be displayed all year round. These dolls are a fabulous gift (especially for new parents and their baby) that can be handed down over the generations.  they must be seen to be really appreciated. If you are interested in availability, just e-mail us at lenaole130@ gmail.com  or call 414-745-4362. Both babies are $29.95 each including shipping.
