Enter a Garden full of toys...

A Toy Garden is a great site that offers a wide variety of mostly hand-made toys,  by the owner of the company,  and friends of hers,  from around the United States.  By coincidence she is located in Sacramento,  my hometown! Sonya,  the owner of her company,  is a stay at home mother and Social Worker.  She began sewing aprons and other toys for her daughter  and it escalated into a business!   For the most part,   her toys are made out of Cotton,  Silk,  Wool,  Wood,  and other natural and high quality materials.  One of the great things about her site is that she will gift wrap(up to a maximum of three items per order),  and complete a card with a message from you,  for free!  
A Toy Garden kindly sent me a Herbal Play Bean Bag Set,  with Fruit and Vegetable themed fabrics.  They  
come in a set of eight and are made with high quality cotton prints.  I thought the "Fruit and Vegetable" theme was a unique and different!  These bean bags are very unique and have a pleasant,  soothing scent. 

The  scents are made from three different organic herbs:

1.  Mint- Scented Peppermint soothes.
2. Chamomile- Chamomile relaxes you.
3. Lavender- Healing Herb.

Each bag is scented with one of the scents above.  *Please note-you may not want to store them in the bag together for too long because the scents will start to mix together although even if this does occur...they still smell great! 
The Bean Bags measure 3 1/2 "x 3 1/2"- which make them perfect to Play With,  Count,  Stack,  Toss,  Juggle,  used as a sachets in your clothes drawer,  and many other uses,  as well!
Since they come in a set of eight you will have plenty of them to use as you wish.  I used a couple in my dresser drawers to pleasantly scent my clothing drawers.  I also gave some to my kids to play with and they had a blast playing with them and stacking them!   They come in eight different "Fruit and Vegetable Prints:
  1. Blueberries
  2. Onions
  3. Lemons
  4. Grapes
  5. Berries
  6. Carrots
  7. Ladybugs and Leaves
  8. Cherries 
My overall favorite pattern was the berries, which included Strawberries,  Blueberries,  Blackberries,  and a Cherry on top!  The Bean Bags are easy for children to handle because they perfectly fit perfectly inside your palm.  The scent reminds me of a hot cup of Herbal Tea,  and leaves me feeling more relaxed.  Herbal Play Bean Bags also offer a set of eight Bean Bags,  in a variety of prints,  which include designs such as:  Stars,  Swirls and Butterflies-just to name a few!  The image on the left is the picture of the Herbal Play Bean Bags,   in assorted prints.  Toy Garden,   also offers Halloween and Christmas themed Herbal Play Bean Bags. 

A Toy Garden also sells numerous other wonderful toys such as: Dolls,  Art Sets,  Finger Puppets,  Baskets, games,  Kits,  Candles,  Soy Crayons and many other interesting and unique toys!  Check them out at Her Website.

*Disclaimer-  A Toy Garden kindly sent me a sample to review on my blog.  In no way did this alter my opinion of their products.  All of my opinions are one hundred percent honest and true*
