For the past couple of years I have tried to do as much of my holiday shopping online as possible. It fits so well with my busy schedule and there are so many wonderful online stores. When I find a new place to shop online I get the same excited feeling I get when I’m shopping at the mall and come across a new store.

I was recently invited to do a review for Growing Tree Toys and since I have four children who enjoy toys very much I was more than happy to accept. Growing Tree Toys is not only a great online resource to find wonderful educational toys for children, they are a family owned and operated retail store out of Pennsylvania. According to the Growing Tree website after 25 years of selling their toys locally Growing Tree decided in 2003 to start and in doing so spread the happiness beyond their friends and neighbors. Here’s a little more about what makes Growing Tree Toys unique from the website: is more than just a toy website – it’s the perfect virtual representation of our store, offering customers the amazing service, wonderful toys and robust features they deserve while shopping online. Featuring a carefully chosen,well-rounded toy selection, unique product details and descriptions, great information on play, helpful suggestions for gift givers, the best gift finder available, and so much more, is truly a specialty toy website with the health and happiness of children at heart.

Growing Tree Toys wants to ensure that their customer’s are 100% happy with their experience at Growing Tree, so they offer them the Growing Tree Toy Promise.

  • A thoughtful selection of toys for children of all ages.
  • 100% safe shopping on their secure website.
  • An in-stock guarantee. If it says the item is in sock on their website and it can not be shipped right away, it’s free! (You can’t beat that kind of customer service).
  • Same day shipping on orders placed before 12:00 PM EST.
  • Easy hassle free returns.
  • 110% Superior Service.

I thought I’d show you all the goodies on the inside of the Fashion Angels Design Studio…pretty neat huh?

We received the Fashion Angels Design Studio to review. I chose this item because my oldest daughter Taylor is really into fashion design. If she’s not reading or singing she is sitting at her desk with her sketch pad designing new outfits, and I must say she is really quite good. The Fashion Angels Design Studio comes equipped with everything your future fashion designer needs to design an entire line if she so chooses. The kit includes croquis sketch pads, a style guide, a pad of tracing paper and newsprint paper, a black fabric pattern swatch card, colored pencils and pens and much more. A few of the things that I liked most about the Fashion Angels Design Studio are: the amount of items that come with the design studio (there really are a ton which means more time spent playing with the product), I also appreciated how the design studio really inspires your child to be creative, something that many toys today are lacking. Overall I think this is a great product for any girl who is into design!

Buy it! You can buy the Fashion Angels Design Studio and lots of other great toys online at!
