Baby's first toy

I just bought the baby his very first toy! It's a wooden car from Finland. I know he isn't actually born yet, but I couldn't resist. :) It makes my heart hurt to picture him pushing this around our living room.

I used to have wooden cars like this when I was lil. This is so cute! Good for you dear to starting this wonderful time!! =)

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

How very sweet! I love its rustic feel.

vanessa joie said...

How sweet! I love wooden toys for kids.

The Boob Nazi said...

That is absolutely adorable.

Reina said...

Joanna do you know the name of the baby already?

Please tell us! I'm curious

Jocy said...

This is very classic! So cute. I can't wait to see what other toys you pick for your babe.

Ashley Lynn Fry said...

How wonderful! He's gonna love it & you are clearly gonna love him enjoying it ;)

My mother in law kept all of my husband's toy from when he was a kid - Little People, Hot Wheels, and his stuffed black cat, Jack. Hard to find affordable, quality toys like that today. But, of course, my kids seems to like pots, boxes, my Blackberry and kitchen utensils the best :-)

Cute, cute, cute! Aww, I am just ecstatic for you!!

Joanna Goddard said...

yes, we have chosen the name and are so excited! but we've decided to keep it secret until the little man is born :)

Anastasia said...

Wooden toys are so great! This is adorable.

Lillian Chang said...

oooh, can't wait to hear the name :)
and that car is adorable!! first toy is a worldly toy, so cute!

Elisa, Croatia said...

aww so you are having a boy. What a fun toy. When I was pregnant I didn't know yet if I was having a boy or girl but I saw this adorable yellow teddy bear. I had to buy it, it called my name..

Meredith said...

I grew up with playing with a set of cars like that! Beautiful. I'm so excited for you.

nicole said...

You are so cute, Joanna! What a lucky little guy. He will have lots of fun with that car!

Oh, and YES - keep your baby name guarded. When I was in my mom's belly, my mom and dad named me Nicole Marie. They revealed my name to friends/family, and a pregnant neighbor-friend named her daughter Marie Nicole. WEIRD!

xoxo.

pen.ny said...

This is precious! Just perfect for a little boy Jo, can't wait to hear the name!!

Hannah said...

it's darling :)

Larysse Tavares said...

Oh, so sweet. I know he'll like eletronic things someday, but his parisian side (mommy side) won't let him lose his roots ;)

Nancy said...

that's the cutest thing ever.

Happenstance said...

Joanna that is the cutest. Our little guy just started making car noises as he pushes his wooden car around-it's the best. We too kept his name a secret until he was born. Then surprised everyone with Kostas.

Stephanie said...

That is so adorable! When I have kids, these are the types of toys I want them to have. I think my rule for friends and family will be "If it requires batteries, please don't buy it for my child." ;-)

Cynthia said...

Gorgeous! Congrats! You'll always have a little story to tell you baby about this car... so sweet!

Joanna Goddard said...

kostas is AWESOME!!! i love that name. and nicole, that is so crazy about your parents' neighbor! :)

Reina said...

Well ... we'll wait! XD

I'm excited for you

Jennifer said...

Very precious!

Abbey said...

i adore adore adore this!!!!

janet said...

I love you for not going to walmart and buying some cheap, made in China..it will be in the trash in one month, kind of toy. Well done mom-to -be!

mrs.k said...

so precious. your sentiments are so beautiful! congrats on the baby. he is coming into a very stylish world of yours :).

MsK said...

I love that! A friend of mine owns a store in Brooklyn that is adorable and has a lot of fun things like that. If you have never been there, I really think you'd like it. http://www.blueribbongeneralstore.net/index.shtml?Screen=USL&Code=index

Colleen said...

so adorable! good choice on a simple toy that's not electronic or mass-produced. xo

Rachel Elizabeth said...

I want to buy our kids mostly wooden and cloth toys. This is adorable!

thecolorplaid said...

yes! love the classic wooden toys! there is a shop in vancouver that only sells wooden toys - so great. it will probably last longer too. :) they are made so much better than plastic ones.

rachel said...

So sweet, Joanna!

Teresa @ good-grace said...

Adorable! I love that it's wooden ... sort of rustic, and beautifully simplistic - makes a lovely, functional toy!!

annie said...

So sweet! To go along with it, I'd recommend 'Cars and Trucks and Things That Go' by Richard Scarry. It was my brother's very favorite book when he was little!

Sarah said...

This is so sweet! I love it!

Blue Is Bleu said...

Trust me, you've shown plenty of restraint if this is the first toy hehe I'm pretty sure I'd have the baby's nursery stocked full of clothes and toys the day I found out I was pregnant lol

Ms. X said...

It doesn't matter if he's not born yet. My sisters and I were buying toys for our youngest sister before she was born. You cannot resist the overwhelming urge to pamper your baby.

Meredith said...

Adorable! He'll love it!

sarah yates said...

so so so cute! it's the perfect first toy- so timeless. LOVE.

CopyStrands said...

My husband would approve that the toy is made of wood. He swears when we start a family the only toys his kid will play with will be natural. Cute car :)

Lisa B said...

This is so sweet! And it is such a classic toy. This is definitely something he will keep with him for years and pass on to his family!

Estelle said...

Perfection. He will love it and so will you. One of those that you will probably save for his lifetime.

designstiles said...

I know what you mean, I frequently want to buy toys and I'm not even close to pregnant. They're too cute to resist.

pearli said...

perfect. my year old son maxilium has a small crew of wooden vehicles that he's just starting to appreciate. tho i've been loving having them around idle too. check out the book "wonder bear" by tao nyeu. it was the first i bought especially for him and "read" whilst still womb'd.

Joanna said...

That does it. You're already the coolest mom on the planet. I love that you eschewed brand names for something classically cool and European.

And good for you for keeping the name a secret. People will find out soon enough, so why not keep it as something special and private that only you and your hubby know about in the meantime?

Amy said...

so cute! wooden cars were the first things i bought for my son while i was pregnant too.

Anonymous said...

So adorable!!!!!!!!!!

iheartkiwi said...

What a sweet sentiment. Your little baby is going to be so loved (and have awesome toys)...

tinypaperheart said...

this is absolutely adorable!

nichole said...

Ahhhh. so sweet! You will always remember this first toy. Always.

I remember buying Alexander a small blue rattle when Evan and I were in Paris (big surprise, huh). I'm all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it.

Jill Turner said...

I thought the cute duck Alex gave you for Christmas was the baby's first toy... :)

Rebekah said...

This is such a sweet toy. I'm sure he'll love it! My younger brother LOVED cars as a baby :]

Chichi Mangou said...

little boys LOVE cars, in every material, every language, and for a long time! good choice!

Pampula said...

I love this as I am a Finn! Good choice :) Greetings to you Johanna and the baby from the very wintery Finland! :)

The Lil Bee said...

So sweet, Jo! I find it physically impossible to walk into a Baby Gap and not come out with at least three things for Devon. She has so many clothes she's yet to even wear, but I just can't seem to help myself!

Joanna Goddard said...

haha, jill, you might be right :)

chiara said...

my little boys have the very same one - and it's the same one my brothers and I had when we were younger. My mom saved it these 30+ years.

Boys are awesome. You're going to love it!

battlingthedinosaurs said...

awww this is so cute!

Mary Ellen said...

Joanna, Santa has those little cars in stock. I know this because it was the only thing he left for Jennifer Colleen (my first baby) on her first Christmas. Thirty-five years later, I still have it. All the best to you and Alex and Baby (you know me as Mrs. Brown, Andie's Mom.)

Adorable first toy!
Be careful to wait until he's older because uncoordinated little hands can hit their head instead.

JLL said...

I just read this post for the first time today! and was excited because I recently bought a wooden truck for my (first) nephew (his due date isn't for another 4 weeks). I live down in Durham NC and found the truck at our local 4th of July festival. An older man, probably in his late 70's, from Greensboro NC had a tent set up where he was selling all of these hand carved wooden cars, trains, plains... He had given out all of his business cards but I am determined to track him down. I would love to get baby Oliver the train cars.
