London based Thorsten van Elten of Theo makes it his business, literally, to bring back into circulation the Oldtimer wooden toy cars from the past. His passion is to see an increase in toys that last saying, “I just hate plastic toys that are played with for five minutes and then end up in a landfill.”  With bright painted colors and simple cuts of wood the line up includes a Karl Klassik similar to a Volkswagen Beetle; Minna Mini resembling a British Leyland Mini;Tom Tempo like the Audi TT; and the artist’s personal favorite the Tim Trabi, as a tribute to the East German Trabant. Produced by family-run company in Germany Formfreud.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she’s taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it’s a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
