 Every Thursday, I’m fortunate to be able to take care of my grandson Laith. At 11 months, he’s already learned
how to use the computer keyboard (with his feet) while sitting on grandpa’s lap. I always bring out toys from
my sample room for him to play with and it’s an absolute delight to see him interact with the toys I’ve designed.
And every year, I’m equally excited to share my top three holiday favorites with our Under the Nile community. 
  1. My first holiday pick is our Jill doll When I designed this toy twenty-two years ago I named her Shereen,
    after my oldest daughter. Shereen was twelve at that time and loved having a doll named after her. To me
    the doll was just as amazing as she was. 
    I’ve always designed our toys around Waldorf inspiration and
    this one is no different.  I like this doll because it teaches little ones rotary skills like changing and tying.  I
    also like that when mom is busy changing a new baby, a toddler can also be changing the doll at the same time.



2.  Second on my list is the Santa Beanie I’m choosing this one simply because it makes me happy. Every
time I see a baby with this beanie on I can’t help but smile. If something as simple as a Santa Beanie could make
someone happy, I’m all for it!


3.  Lastly, my third holiday pick is our Baby BuddyThe baby buddy is one of my all-time favorites because of its
simplicity. I designed this toy when I first started Under the Nile and it has stayed in my collection for 24 years. I
know how much this toy is loved because I receive so many calls from people looking to replace ones that
have been lost. Recently, I had a customer whose son is ten and had his baby buddy since birth, but somehow
it went missing. I found the exact same color in my sample room. It made me so happy that I could reunite him
with his long lost buddy!
