Must. Find. This.

So I’ve been reading blogs from random women who are part of a design/sewing/arts/crafts community. It’s all fascinating…

I came across this toy, which I think would be PERFECT for any of my little nieces.

Mausens Klamottenkiste

The only problem is, I’ve only found this Mausens Klamottenkiste on German online stores…Anybody knows where I can find this here in the U.S.?

  1. Hey K, I’m on the hunt to help you with this! I’m always searching for great new things for all the kids in our life so I’ve found some good resources and become pretty good at finding desired stuff.

    I haven’t found that specific toy brand on US sites or in stores yet, but think that at the very least contacting some of the online as well as brick-and-mortar toy stores that stock european toys would be a good place to start. Since they already import from there they may very well be able to special order it if they are already using an exporter who works with Germany. This of course is my amatuer suggestion, hehe.
    This is a great store in Manhattan:
