You planned on completing your holiday shopping early in the season this year. Your sister has been done for months and your best friend did her shopping over the summer, right? We understand that sometimes life gets in the way and best-laid plans don’t pan out quite like we thought they would. Don’t panic! We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite local shops and their top recommendations for last-minute shopping for the littles in your life.

For the Active Tiny Tot

Green Toys
If one of your brood is still in that stage where everything needs to be large and easy to manage, we understand. Green Toys are a favorite not only for visual appeal and imaginative potential, but they're made in America from 100% recycled plastic. The quality of these toys is top-notch and kids love them because the boats really float, the dump truck holds a full load and the wheels are large and sturdy.
