Recycled Art Bazaar 1
In Senegal, Mali, Kenya and other countries in Africa, resourceful people have long excelled at fashioning toys from the available materials - tin cans, wire and scrap rubber and plastic that we would discard as trash. Continually searching the world for more such innovations, Indigoarts also offers cars, planes, purses and frames from Vietnam, tin ornaments from Mexico, papier-mache bowls from South Africa and cars and trucks from Cuba!
My family always makes fun of how we had to play airplane to get my brother to eat. This makes "playing airplane" more fun for your child! Perhaps you can even get them to eat their peas.
I need one of these, pictured here slicing what looks like Spanish Manchego or Iberico, two of my favorite kinds of cheeses ($18 at Williams Sonoma).
Slice through hard and semi-hard cheeses, shave delicate curls of chocolate or fragrant truffle. The adjustable blade lets you choose the slicing thickness from hearty slices to paper-thin curls.
