Bring your history lessons to life!
Knights and damsels, chivalry and imaginative play. What would complement your study of Medieval history or literature better than these outstanding handmade toys by Made By Alejandro?
Before Alejandro makes anything, it has to spark a child’s imagination (starting with his own) and cause children to want to play together - be it with other children, or better yet, their parents. He makes everything by hand and is always looking to improve the way he fabricates his toys. He takes special care to endure all toys are safe, durable, and will last for years to come. And all of the dyes, stains, and sealers he uses are water-based and eco friendly. This kind of attention to detail has helped make the toys children friendly and parent happy.
We're so glad his schedule allows him to be back at the Conference this year! Last time he was with us, he was surprised to sell out of lots of products, so shop early.
