Calling All Those in a Panic: Last Minute Gift Ideas from Connecticut Shops
(page 5 of 5)
For the kids:
Reibman's in Torrington is the largest children's furniture and apparel store in northwestern Connecticut; regarding kid's clothes, they specialize in sizes from newborn to size 4. Your little cutie will look particularly divine in outfits by Mud Pie, whether designed for the holidays or any day.
Wethersfield's The Wooden Toy stocks more than 10,000 toys, games and books for children from infancy to pre-teen age: Bathtub toys, musical toys, educational toys and collectibles are just the beginning of the list. This wooden "balance boat," made of Baltic birch and maple, helps young'uns develop dexterity, fine motor skills and aptitude for problem solving.
For the dog:
This Green Interactive Dog Feeder turns your best friend's meal into a challenging game, giving them the kind of mental stimulation that helps to eliminate other problems like inappropriate chewing or barking. All you have to do is scatter Rover's dinner across the toy's surface, and watch him work to push the blades of grass aside as he eats. The Green also extends his dinner time, thus promoting healthier habits that reduce problems with gagging, vomiting and gas. One size fits all dogs, and the toy is dishwasher safe. Look for it at The Bowerbird in Old Lyme.
