Tactile Baby! CLOSED



Finding the perfect Easter toy to add to your child's basket can be a pain. Espcially with all the lead paint and recall scares. Tactiile Baby was created for this reason. I asked the Colleen, the owner of Tactile Baby, to share some more information about her and her store. This is what she had to say.

"I was born with the DIY gene. Even as a young girl I would go shopping for clothes and instinctively think to myself "I could make that". I learned to sew, knit and embroider when I was still in Elementary School (thanks to my talented grandmother's patient instruction).

Of course when I found out I was pregnant I went about designing a nursery. When I couldn't find any bedding I liked, it was a no brainer, I'd make my own. Well, when I was done with the bedding I moved on to a wall quilt, and a wall mural. When we couldn't find a dresser we liked we, (my husband and I), built one ourselves.

My son's first Christmas, 2007, was marked by a widly publicized lead paint scare. Each day, it seemed to me, a new toy was being recalled. My son was at the age, 9 months, where everything was going into his mouth, so in a effort to ease our concerns my husband and I decided that we would make all his gifts.

I think what makes Tactile Baby unique is that nearly all of the products I produce were first envisioned as things my son would use, and in fact, he does have one of nearly everything in my product line. A mother's care, concern and eye for the tiniest of details goes into every design."



I love the fact that all Tactile products were created by a concerned mother and the toys and items were made around children and their likes. I want to personally thank Colleen for creating such wonderful and safe products.
