A few months ago, I was introduced to CSN Stores through some of my foodie blog friends, and I spent a little time browsing through their 200+ online shops, looking at everything from ice cream makers and bedding to wardrobes and cool baby gear. I was intrigued by the huge selection available through CSN, and I promised myself I’d visit again soon…
Well, little man’s birthday is creeping up on me fast, and it’s time to do some shopping! So, I headed back to CSN to find some toys and other fun stuff. I wasn’t sure what I’d find, but I had a few things in mind and I was hoping to get enough of my gifts there to meet the $69 requirement for free shipping (not hard to do, considering you can buy just about anything at CSN.)
I headed over to CSN Baby and clicked on the “Go Green” option (just look for the little leaf at the top of the page.) This is an AWESOME feature, because it enables you to put a “green” filter on your entire search. Priceless, especially if you’re also trying to make lunch while chasing a baby who has recently learned how to run….
Imagine my surprise when I found TONS of toys! I could do every bit of my birthday shopping here, and my holiday shopping too! I was thrilled to find Plan Toys, Green Toys, Wonderworld, and so many others. I promise you this goes way beyond any blogger/sponsor partnership. Anyone who has spent time searching stores for better play alternatives knows that this is a goldmine!
There were cute organic stuffed animals, sleek modern toys, old fashioned wooden classics…and I didn’t have to worry about screening them for yicky plastic and toxic paints, because CSN already did that for me. So what should I get?
This cool Svan Scooter?
This creativity-inspiring Bilibo Play Shell?
I made a preliminary list of about 20 favorites. This coming from the mother who says things like, “I don’t think babies need a ton of toys.”
Oh dear. I think I’m in trouble.
