Perfect for little gatherers!

This sweet basket is beautifully made and the perfect size and weight for budding explorers and treasure hunters. My daughter loves gathering all her backyard finds into this basket and then toting it around with her. Very cute!

beautiful baskets

beautiful baskets that fit little hands perfectly. My kids love to use them on hikes and exploring outdoors to collect their nature treasures. We have 3 and all get used regularly in our daily and weekly play.

The cutest basket!

We purchased this for our daughter’s Easter basket and to be used later in her playroom. It’s really adorable and fair trade! Super happy with our purchase!

This was smaller than I thought, but it’s probably my fault for not reading the dimensions. It ended up being the perfect size for an Easter basket and now holds my toddler’s pretend produce toys. So cute, well made, and fair trade! Shipping was speedy, and it arrived in perfect shape.
