    We (the tireless toymakers) at 559 are super excited to be a part of the Mom to Mom Shop and Swap this fall! And because of our excitement, we’ve been working on a bunch of handcrafted toy goodness to introduce at the show. Of course, if you want to take a pre-show peek at 559 and our range of developmental toys for infants+, please come and take a look at our website, at www.play559.com.

    New Products

    They’re so new that we don’t even have photos of them (or names for them) yet, but we’ll be introducing new products in both our Infant and Toddler toy lines! First up is a smaller (and crinklier) version of our Tabby Square, which will still feature a couple of different textures to explore, colourful ribbon tabs to play with, and modern colours and design. And for the 559 tots? A new line of wooden Autos, with more traditional vehicular shapes, and natural, hemp-oiled bodies and wheels, for maximum open-ended play. We know a lot of our fans (small and tall) are going to be pumped about these ones, and, honestly, we’re pretty pumped too.

    Limited Edition Rattle Colour

    We’re happy to say that 559 will be releasing limited-edition colours of our rattles a couple of times a year, and on Nov 8th and 9th, our first oh-so-special colour will be available!

    A little softer than our other colours, this lovely pinky-purple (that we’re calling Orchid) looks so fabulous with our original purple and natural, hemp-oiled wood, that we couldn’t help photographing the new Orchid rattles hanging out with their deeper purple rattle-siblings. Still safely made with wood, milk-paint, hemp-oil, and non-toxic glue, 559’s Discus, Orbit and Circus Rattles are all available, in small quantities, in beautiful Orchid.

    Giveaway Gift Basket

    This adorable assortment would be perfect for any wee one, and includes a set of gorgeous 559 Baby Blocks, a fascinating Orbit Rattle (in whatever colour the winner would like), a tactile and teething Dotty Ring, and a set of our 4 Textured Fabric Rings (in grey/white or ivory/white). There’s $56 dollars of our handcrafted products in there, and all you have to do to enter is sign-up at the show for our e-newsletter!

    Military/Law-Enforcement Discount

    With close ties to the military community, we’d like to remind our customers that as a thank you for their (and their families) service and sacrifices, we offer a 10% discount to members, and families of members, of the military and law enforcement communities. At markets and shows, this turns into a rounded-up 10% due to the cash nature of the events (get $1 off on $10 and under, get $2 off on $11 – $20, etc), which is really a pleasure for us to be able to offer, and truly the least that we can do.
