I am a Work-at-Home Mom to a 4-year-old and an 18-month old. I tutor, run my online retail business and just try to keep up! I have a wonderful hubby and a Master's degree in Education. I love to read and to write, and I love to find American-made products to share with my friends, family and customers!
When I took time off from teaching elementary school to raise my daughter, I found that being a mother is the most fulfilling job I could have ever imagined! I feel like my heart is walking around outside of my body each and every day! And then with the birth of my son, the feeling was only multiplied. I want only the highest quality, safest products for my children, whether they are toys, blankets or clothing. With recent safety concerns and recalls of toys, blankets and other children’s products, I found myself wanting to get “Back to Basics” for my children’s sake. I wanted to have toys that would challenge their minds and encourage developmental growth (that’s my 15 years as a teacher coming out!). You remember from your childhood, the toys that don’t require batteries, but instead use imagination, creative thinking, and problem solving. I also wanted the quality and safety of these products to be unquestionable (that is definitely the mother in me!). These ideals became my beacon. At the same time, since I've had children, I have become even more aware of the importance of social responsibility, and the need to support our own nation, the workers, and the economy. My search for the perfect products was long and frustrating, and I wished for one place where I could find a variety of safe, American-made toys, and quality American-made baby products. So the idea for All-American Baby was born. I searched for and found the perfect toys, books, clothing, blankets, diaper bags, bedding and accessories…Made in the USA...and I'd like to share them with you.
