NO BATTERIES. NO BLINKING LIGHTS. NO CARTOON-THEMED TOYS. PERIOD.

We offer our constantly expanding collection of European wooden toys, baby toys, educational toys, jewelry, bags and children’s room decor items to urbane and discerning adults who want to expose the young children in their lives to non-character branded, quality toys. We believe toys should be natural, non-violent and from manufacturers who provide safe and nurturing environments for their employees. We believe in fair, competitive pricing and strive for 100% customer satisfaction.

I love what this company has to offer. I mean if some of us think back we can remember a day where something as simple as a sock monkey was the hottest toy and one you could have a ton of fun with. One of my favorite toys as a child was a simple block wood car my grandfather gave to me. I remember having to take that car everywhere with me. I wanted to go back to a more simple time in life with my toddler now. She has name brand toys all over the place but you know she stopped playing with most of them when I gave her her first Oompa toy. It definitely won’t be her last!

Educo Count Down Wire Maze

Round and round and up and down!  Count Down is a colorful toy designed to develop a child’s hand-eye coordination, shape and color recognition, and counting skills.  The sturdy wooden base has a smooth and child-friendly natural finish and the beads are a combination of plastic and wood.  Count Down provides a wonderful way for your little one to work on his fine motor skills.

The Educo Count Down Wire Maze is one of the most coolest toys I have gotten for her so far and I am so happy that the kind people over at Oompa gave me one to review as it has become my daughters favorite toy. She will actually sit for hours playing with it. That is a huge accomplishment for an 18 month old. And one of my favorite things about it is that she can take it with her and play with it at restaurants and just about anywhere I go, it’s very portable. I love it and she loves it, perfect match!

And I have great news! The Oompa people have offered me the chance to give one Educo Count Down Maze to one lucky Dirty Shirt reader. See rules below to enter:

  1. I love the Girali from Selecta. Looks like a really cool toy for a little one. If I were to win the Educo Count Down Maze I would give it to my grandson. He has a couple of mazes similar to this one and he spends hours threading the beads through it.
