- #10 Best Kids’ Toys
Colleen Baker, mother of two in Stow, Massachusetts.
Why We Love Her:
Colleen was born with the DIY gene, learning how to sew and design from her grandmothers and how to build with wood from her grandfather. She went from knitting scarves to making her prom dress to somehow landing in the corporate world while dust collected on her sewing machine. Falling in love and having her son finally rekindled her affair with crafting, especially since she had a little person she wanted to keep healthy with safe toys. Every item in her shop – puzzles, wood numbers, stackable toys – are inspired and tested by her son, and made with motherly concern and care.
