About Ah!Natural Baby
Based in Portland, Oregon, Ah!Natural Baby was created by two brothers who watched their sister struggle to find safe toys for her sweet babe. They figured if she was having issues, there were other mothers out there having the same issues. They were right! The toys are made of Pacific Northwest Wood. They are dyed with natural, plant based dyes made from berries, spices and vegetables. The toys are then sealed with a finish of beeswax and grape seed oil. All of which are safe for your babe! The blocks come in sweet little handmade bags to keep them together. And I absolutely love their tagline: “Your baby never worries about goes in their mouth, so neither should you!” SO TRUE!
Andrew at Ah!Natural Baby was very generous in sending my family a wonderful array of products to play with. We received a Number Block set, a Color Block set, a DuoCube Rattle and Teether, a Diamond Teether and both of my girls received a Custom Name Block set! I was literally in shock, and quite frankly, so were the girls! Each item was so unique and beautiful – some look more streaky, some look more knotty, some are spotted (I know, these are all very technical terms.). When we first received the blocks, we all sat for a long time, looking at and examining each block. The numbers and letters are branded into the block. The Color Block set is seriously amazing – the colors are so beautiful, vibrant and unique. The Diamond Teether is very cute and perfect for gnawing on (Abigail, not me!). The DuoCubeis probably my favorite because it boggles my mind. There is a cube inside a larger cube with circles in it (not doing it justice). The thing that gets me is that the smaller cube cannot be removed, it was all carved as one piece! I have very busy hands, so if I’m sitting, listening or playing with the girls or whatever, I’m playing with the DuoCube…so maybe that one’s my toy!
The girls absolutely LOVE these blocks and toys! They are a little larger than I expected (Though the website clearly states they are 1 5/8 inch square), so they stack VERY well and VERY tall! We’ve gotten a stack to go just over Esther’s (4 years) head! Of course Abigail dives at the tower to make sure it doesn’t go taller! It’s also super fun for Esther to use her Name Blocks to practice spelling her name and the Number Blocks to practice her numbers. Abigail likes practicing the colors with the Color Blocks, although her first guess is almost always ‘purple!’ Abigail also really loves the Diamond Teether and DuoCube, both of which have made a home in our diaper bag. They are wonderful for distracting from a stressful situation, or playing with while struggling through diaper changes. A dream for mamas, for sure! Another thing the girls LOVE to do with the blocks is bag them up and take them on ‘trips’ around the house. I’m not sure as to the draw of this, but whatever makes them happy! Unfortunately, our over curious and crazy dog, Rowdy, found some interest in the blocks, too. Namely, the Color Blockset – I’m guessing because of the natural foods used to dye them. We resolved the issue by purchasing a plastic bin with handle locks to keep them in. We generally play with them during our school time, so they can stay upstairs, safe from our Ridiculous Rowdy!
