Holiday Gift Idea: Krafty Minds (Etsy review)

Recently, Squirt has been pulling out movies from our collection, asking if he can watch them. Most of them are too old for a 3-year-old to watch, although it's tempting. One of his favorites to ask for is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I wouldn't mind him watching it really, but he gets frightened (or "scaried") kind of easily so I think The Shredder may freak him out.

But he loves listening to the cartoon theme song and things I find on You Tube. So I found this Nostalgically Inspired coin purse of Donatello on Etsy and had the opportunity to review it. My mom will tell you that I was a little obsessed with TMNT back in the day...she's probably right. I remember having MC Hammer-type pants with TMNT on them (they were red) and I wore them for so long they were mid-calf and holey in the knees. So I guess this is my way of re-living my childhood in a cooler fashion.

The coinpurse itself is really well-made. The sewing far surpasses my own...but that's not saying much, unfortunately. What I mean is it's well-sewn. I don't think I have a worry in the world that it will fall apart; I hope to have this piece for a long time.

Squirt hopes so, too. He has taken to carrying it around as much as I'll let him, which isn't a whole lot. I don't have a lot of money in there, but there are the debit cards.

What a great way to present a piece of childhood to your friends or family. Kristy of KraftyMinds has many other products for sale to bring back a good ol' piece of yesteryear...or yesterday. Here are some of my other favorites:
