Marianne of GooseHillDesigns has been an online buddy of mine for about a year now, and I love her line of crayons for a few reasons. First, they are recycling at its best. Second, they work so well when little ones don't quite have the grasp to hold a crayon correctly and need to "palm" it. Here are a few of the items from her shop that would be perfect first birthday gifts, stocking stuffers, etc.
