These snowmen would be perfect in a holiday photo!

I am really excited to share one of my favorite stores with you today! The Learning Palace is a family-owned educational store that has been around since 1982! I have been shopping there ever since my 10-yr old was a toddler. They carry awesome puzzles, trains, science kits, and teacher supplies. LOTS of really fun stuff!

pull toys are perfect for new walkers!

One of the reasons I want to sing The Learning Palace’s praises is for their awesome wooden toy selection. These kind of toys are the perfect photo prop!

Wouldn’t it be a great idea to present a toddler (or up to age 7, maybe?) with a new toy to play with at the beginning of a photo session? These wood toys have a vintage / retro feel to them, and would be perfect with some similarly styled clothing!

pretend food is a great alternative if you don’t want to clean up a mess after your session
stacking and pounding toys are a big hit with little ones!

Keeping a kiddo’s hands busy is a great way to get a candid photo and show their true personality.

If you don’t live near one of their seven Pacific NW locations, they also have an online store HERE.

Lots of bulletin board supplies
