Used to be, you went rollin’ with the homies.
Since your little guy game along, it’s more like rollin’ with the punches.
Smooth things out with Manny & Simon, the new line of super-slick push toys made from postindustrial recycled wood and finished with nontoxic and low-odor paints.
Choose from an elephant, fish, pig, duck, dinosaur, snail, lamb, or turtle. The company also offers matching tees and onesies in ribbed or organic cotton.
So you can let the good times roll.
