Hi, I’m Victoria, your personal heirloom toy dealer.

So, you’ve fallen in love with wooden toys?
You are not alone, me too.

In 2018 I became a mother and quickly fell in love with all the beautiful wooden toys. Where do I begin? What is worth investing in? Does a rainbow stacker really cost that much? These were all the questions that stormed my brain. I imagine most of us felt this way when we ventured into the world of Grimm’s and Ostheimer, so I get it. I spent countless hours searching for a cheaper alternative (without sacrificing quality) and just kept feeling unsure and afraid to order a product with little to no reviews from an unknown source overseas.

One night, I did it. I pulled the trigger on a slightly cheaper version of a Grimm’s Large 12 piece Rainbow Stacker. As I waited for the Rainbow Stacker to arrive from India (which took forever), I was nervous and anxious of what I would actually receive. I was pleasantly surprised, it was mostly what I expected, but was aware of the fact that if the toy had arrived and I hated it, that it would not financially make sense to send it back. Thankfully, I had never seen a Grimm’s toy in person and had no idea what I was or wasn’t missing in my knock off. With that said, I never did that again and neither should you. That’s why I decided to open Things They Love. I want to bring you those quality toys, while still being mindful of the price tag and the environment. Let me handle sourcing those amazing pieces that spark joy in your heart, (clears throat) I mean your kids heart, without cutting into their college fund, am I right?
