I just finished a swap where I made some various toys and games. I kept getting more and more ideas after I sent it off. I know that I love making these things and my daughter LOVED getting them. I think it would be neat to do a toy swap. It could be a large toy, or several small, simple toys. Stuffies, games, craft things, anything kids would enjoy. I haven't done enough swaps to organize but if someone was interested, I would be ready to do this any time Smiley

I don't want to organize, way too much stress for me.  But, I would be more than willing to join and make stuffies.  I know I have at least 1 pattern for a learning stuffed animal.  I might have more.  I might also be able to make some wooden toys.  I'll keep an eye on this one.

I could sew or crochet stuffie toys.  As a matter of fact we recently had a swap that Gotgrey did organize.  She did a very good job but I'm sure it was stressful doing it in addition to going about her daily activities.  It's a lot of work.

Thank you for the kind words mamarose22.  It was only stressful, because there were some bumps along the road.  Tanza and I are still dealing w/those "bumps".  I'm a stay at home mom, so there aren't a whole lot of daily activities around here.  At least, not anymore, because my boys are 18 and in college and 13 and in middle school.  It just seems as though when you organize a swap, it could just go on, and on, and on w/no end in sight, and hurt feelings.  I don't like for anybody's feelings to get hurt.

I have first hand knowledge of how hard you worked on this swap.
