I have always loved Amber Dusick's wood creations but her shop has been in hibernation for quite some time and I needed a gift for my daughter's birthday. We are doing are best to go back to more simple, non-plastic toys and these fit the bill :) Unfortunatly they reminded me of why I hate my scroll saw. I am scared to death of that thing. I was sweating like crazy by the time I finished cutting these! By the way, you can sign up at Amber's shop to get an email notice of when/if she comes back.
