Delta Children’s Book and Toy Organizer is Perfect for Toddlers

Delta Children

Our darling Addy turned two in February and I like to instill good habits in our children from a young age. We've been working with her on cleaning up her own toys and books and it's been a difficult journey because she didn't always want to pick up her things. She's very strong minded and wants what she wants. I knew we needed to look into a toy organizer to help with this task and I was thrilled to learn that Delta Children had a PRINCESS one … [Read more...]
