~~ Nico and Zoe Toys Review~~

Pamela and Stacy, owners of Nico & Zoe Toys, sent me a "Made By Me Art Kit". At first I thought it was kind of plain and didn't think the girls would like it much. Boy was I wrong!!!

I don't know if it was the idea of doing something all on their own or knowing they would get to use the paint and markers, but they absolutely LOVED the idea of making their very own car!!
This kit includes the blank bodies for a train with smokestack, tugboat, tractor, and truck plus wheels and axles for each. The assembly instructions are enclosed.
Check out some pictures of what comes in the kit:

Each made by me vehicle is 4 inches long, sanded but unfinished pine wood. All you need is some glue, a hammer, and paints, crayons, stickers or whatever creative tools you want to use to decorate your own toys.

Information from the Nico & Zoe Toys site states:
"At Nico & Zoe Toys, our aim is to offer uncommon, made in USA, European, local, handmade, modern & wooden toys at reasonable prices!
We carry many wooden toys for toddler,baby, educational & classic toys, from UK, Thailand, and many with Fair Trade. Our toys are made of safe & tested materials.
We carry a variety of toys - about 1/3 US made, 1/3 European made and 1/3 Asia manufactured. We trust all of the toys that we carry to be safe for your children - our kids play with our toys! However, we understand your need to make informed choices, and that is why all of our products list where they are made and manufactured.
Thank you for your added support for local, handmade toys, and we will continue to explore and expand this line as we find them."

They have so many other things there is no way I could list them all so go over to Nico and Zoe Toys and see what kinds of fun things you can find to do with your kids!!
