I'm so excited to share with you a fun Etsy shop, Trendy Tots Textiles.
Sarah is the brilliant owner and designer, who began her business one day after deciding to make a fishing game for her kids. One game turned into dozens more!! With many tweaks along the way, the game has become what they are today - a fun, interactive and colorful collection of magnetic fish and a pole and a carrying bucket or drawstring bag.
Sarah carefully selects fabrics for her games, and loves to see the smiling faces of the children who play them.
The fish are made from a soft cotton and magnetic washers attached to attract the magnet on the fishing pole. Each basket comes with 10 fish made from 5 different fabrics. They measure approx. 6.5" long. Each fish also features 2 adorable button eyes.
The fishing pole is 12" long and has a braided yarn fishing line attached.
The magnet is enclosed in the 'bait'.
Each games includes 1 pole, but additional poles can be purchased so that a friend or sibling can join the fun.
Being able to spend some time up at our cabin this summer and living in the land of 10,000 lakes here in Minnesota, my girls are huge fans of fishing. It was something that I was raised doing and have loved passing my love for it down to Alexa and Lillian. While we love to fish in the summer, it's not always as fun in the middle of the freezing cold winter.
I have a feeling that this sweet fishing game from Sarah will get lots of use this winter when we're dreaming of the warm sunny days out on the lake.
It is the perfect game for toddlers 3+. Lillian is 6 and loves catching all the fish in patterns (both orange, then purples.. or every other color). The colors are so bright and stimulating. I love that it provides her practice with hand eye coordination and requires her to concentrate on matching the magnets while she catches the fish.
These amazing sets would make a great birthday or Christmas gift for those little fishermen in your life, or for any child who loves creative play!
Sarah would like to offer one lucky Mom-a-Logues winner a 5 pc fishing set with a drawstring bag and 1 fishing pole.
