Wooden Toy Bar


When A  was a baby we were given a second hand  little plastic toy bar / frame for him to play with. The colours were a bit bright in that ‘let’s stimulate the baby’s eye sight’ kind of way and in truth I loved the concept but very rarely used it.

When H came along I happened to see a wooden one and loved it (but not the price) and decided that I could just make one – this kind of thinking is a bit of a problem really because it just means that my project list is never ending). It was one of my first woodwork projects as a Mama, simple to make and H had many hours playing under it.

Now it is baby L’s turn. At the moment because she is so young I have draped silk scarves from the frame for her to gaze at


and now I sometimes put on this little wooden pram toy.



 As she gets older I will hang other items made of felt and wood.  




Once baby L outgrows it I have plans to use it as a frame for a little dolls swing or hammock for the girls.

I was inspired to post  about the toy bar by Karen of Bare Feet and a Free Spirit who has made one of these too
