Now that I have had my rant, It is time to be constructive and list the toys shops (online of course) that I love
http://www.extendabilities.com.au/ - about to close down but atill have a lovely selection
http://www.dragonflytoys.com.au/ - great books too
http://www.rudolfsteiner.com.au/ - also great fro reference books
http://www.winterwoodtoys.com.au/ - my crafty supplier too
http://www.honeybeetoys.com.au/ - haven't ever bought from them but they look great.
www.spiralgarden.com.au - another great one.
Making childrens toys is a love of mine but woodworking is something I haven't got into yet - I wonder if dh would let me loose in his shed!
