Thursday, Richard Scarry, and Etsy

One of these things doesn't belong Richard Scarry game blocks via LiliaRose

When I first saw these Richard Scarry block sets from LiliaRose on Etsy, I wanted one desperately (of course), but it also got me thinking about what other Busytown treasures could be out there.
I am a giant Richard Scarry fan and my children are too, so a search for him on Etsy was very exciting in these parts. These are some of the items now on our wishlist....

For crafting- some sweet circle punches, stacks of envelopes, and pushpins:

For your home- Fun fabric from Busytown, an Initial Frame and a pretty punched paper collage:

Especially for kids- some stuffed Lowly Worms and a vintage Puzzletown playset!

Finally, for a party- a custom invitation, some thank you notes and the perfect favor bag...

Now I just need to decide what to order first :)

  5. Great post, I love Richard Scarry's Busytown, it brings back so many nice memories from my childhood!

    I see you also have his Storybook Dictionary. Do you suppose you could take a picture of the page with the letter H? I made memory cards of my copy of the book, and the ones for H were lost. It would be great to have a full set again :)
