On Demand

hoosier magnolia quilts!

You’ve given orders all year. As a present to your obedient brood, it’s time to break the rules.

Stay out of the Dirt
Your little outdoorsman loves slinging mud pies. Buy him Fascinations’s Worm Observatory (Artist & Craftsman Supply, 307 Market Street; 267-861-6008) for up-close encounters with creepy crawlies.

Slow Down
Ditch the tricycle and indulge his need for speed with TootScoot (Nurture, 19 West Lancaster Avenue, Ardmore; 610-649-0424). The sturdy two-wheeler helps with balancing, putting him one step closer to a big-boy bike.

No Playing at the Table
Stuffed with scrawl-ready place mats and markers, Modern-Twist’s Kidz Box (Petulia’s Folly, 1710 Sansom Street; 215-569-1344) will have her happily scribbling through supper.

Time for Bed
Enhance nap time with a one-of-a-kind quilt from Hoosier Magnolia (Art Star, 623 North Second Street; 215-238-1557). Because it’s backed in cozy chenille, your kiddo should go down without a peep.

Whining for more?

Their wish is your command.
