Ferndale, MI – Modern Natural Baby is located at 200 W Nine Mile Rd in Downtown Ferndale, and if you’re looking to shop local for families with babies and small children this store is a great option.
It was hard to narrow down our annual gift idea guide to 15 items, so there are a few extra here. The Bedtime Shadow Book is one that I think kids would love. The Christmas one is pictured here, but there are others for year-round enjoyment including an under the sea theme, noises in the night that are not monsters, and fairy tales.
Hape’s Space City, which is a glow in the dark building set seems absolutely beautiful. While a series of “photicular” books gives the impression of animation with each exciting page.
For a practical gift, one might consider the the Veer Cruiser, which is a rugged convertible stroller/wagon that grows along with the little ones that get to ride in it through the years.
There are also gifts for those who want to give youngsters female role models, including the kids book “She Persisted,” written by Chelsea Clinton, and a set of toy blocks by Grand Rapids-based Uncle Goose called “Women Who Dared,” which includes Hillary Clinton, Susan B. Anthony, Mother Teresa and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. There are other educational block sets, including US Presidents, Bugs, and Constellations.
