A Surprise Gift Away

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...wait... wrong script.... a long time ago, well 2007 to be exact, a group of women led by Amber of Woodmouse got together on Etsy and started the NaturalKids team. It was a small group, with a small presence on Etsy. Since that time members have come and gone but the mission has stayed the same. To be a group of sellers dedicated to creating natural products for children. NaturalKids is a diverse group of artisans who make natural toys, utensils, clothing and accessories for kids and our goal is to support, promote and have fun together while building our businesses.
One of our 1st Team Blog Post read as below and it is still true today....
We are a diverse bunch from all over the globe who have at least one thing in common: we all work with natural materials in our products for children. Oh yeah, and we're all pretty darn crafty & talented too! Wool, wood, cotton...just simple materials direct from the Earth.

Some of us make dolls, some of us make hats, some of us make toys.
Some of us have been selling our wares for many years
Some of us are just starting to discover our talents and start selling.
Some of us work with natural materials for environmental reasons.
Some of us work with natural materials as part of the Waldorf educational philosophy.
Some of us work with natural materials because we believe they are healthier and safer.
Some of us just like working with natural materials.
Some of us sell our wares for a living.
Some of us sell our wares as a hobby.

Since that time, some of us are also fathers! :)
