Kidazy, June 2, 2008, has a charming review of everyone’s favorite Maddox’s Rolling Horse, the toy that’s become something of an unofficial mascot around here. Thanks, Amy!


“…Quiet Hours Toys proves to be a quaint collection of trinkets for the young (and young at heart). Filled with serene “old school” sort of toys, decorative prints and mobiles as well as lovely booties for children, it’s a real playground for everyone. Parents will have a field day as well as those sourcing unique special gifts for young recipients.

Each item is exquisite and speaks volumes of your style. And they are all handmade.”

“Have you ever found a website that you just click and click on everything you see? And, after you clicked on everything, you click some more?

Quiet Hours Toys is one of those sites. I just spent time on the site and found so many things I love, I can’t even decide what items to post here to give you a taste of what they offer! What I love most of all (other than the fact that it is another fabulous mom-owned company) is that you won’t find leaded plastic toys, Disney characters or kitschy toys — instead you will find old-world style, artisan-crafted toys + wares from around the world — all for children!”

“For hand-crafted pieces from all over the world, click over to Quiet Hours Toys, an online store where every beautiful toy has a real story behind it. Independent artisans and craftspeople offer unique merchandise that really stands out from the plastic pack…The site’s old-school collection is sure to include something perfect for your little one (or next weekend’s birthday kid), and the craftsmanship means it will still be around long after the plastic stuff breaks.

After all, your kid’s not mass produced.”

“Browsing the selections at Quiet Hours Toys really gets our imagination going. Carey created Quiet Hours Toys in response to a common challenge – having kids while being space constrained:

“With the lack of space we quickly started translating our philosophy of having “fewer but better things” into toy-buying for the lads.”

The online store offers well-crafted handmade items that are detailed yet simple, fueling hours of make believe play for little ones.” Read more…

“I remember back in the day, a play salad was grass we had picked mixed up with a little hand-lotion for pretend salad dressing and the odd rock thrown in for croutons. To have had this play salad from Quiet Hours Toys would have made the scene so much more colorful…By Jess Nicole.”
