Blanchard Valley Hospital Gift Shop

Indestructibles are colorful paperback picture books built for the way babies read. They are chew-proof, rip-proof and drool-proof making them suitable for even the tiniest hands and mouths. Created by Amy Pixton, a mother of triplets, the delightful series of books are made with non-toxic material that can also be thrown into the dishwasher if they get dirty. (Seriously!) 25 different books include Beach Baby, Baby Faces and Humpty Dumpty, each with beautiful illustrations and simple stories to keep a baby’s attention. 

They are sold for $5.95 each at Blanchard Valley Hospital Gift Shop. 419-423-5388, 1900 S. Main St.

Add a little education to mealtimes with Melissa & Doug Learning Mats sold at Once Upon A Child in Findlay.

Little Monkey Kitchen

With warm gooey dough and sweet glaze, homemade cinnamon rolls are hard to beat. But for those with food allergies and intolerances they can be both difficult to make and hard to find. Thanks to Cortney Mumaugh, owner of Little Monkey Kitchen, scratch-made, allergy-friendly cinnamon rolls are just a phone call away. Baked in a kitchen completely free of gluten, dairy, egg and soy, these rolls are a fan-favorite. Almost every allergy can be accommodated, so families can enjoy a yummy treat without fear of a reaction. $12 for 6 rolls or $21 for 12. Order by phone or on Facebook.
