wooden toys!

whenever I'm in India, or friends are coming up, I place orders for some fabulous Channapatna wooden toys for my kid.

Wood. solid, vegetable paints, and? I am an adult, I play with my son, we can tell if the stuff is too beat to use.

when I am in Chennai, this is the place:
Cane & Bamboo Indian Handicrafts
# 45, Ethiraj Salai
Egmore, Chennai, Tamilnadu 600008, India

they buy from Maya Organic, a wonderful cooperative that helps teach people to work, build, and live well in the modern world. And? they have really cool toys.
