Today I’m featuring Wild Dill!

My son Dylan, an amazing little guy who loves water, books, bugs, outside and strawberries, has inspired me to start Wild Dill – a store that reflects his sense of curiosity and wonder for everything that is natural and wild. We carry only natural, organic, fair trade, made in the USA/Europe, or recycled clothing, toys, bedding and furniture for babies and toddlers.

Wild Dill carries all of the clothes, toys, games, art supplies, and bedding from my favorite natural and organic brands like Green Toys, Clementine Arts, ImagiPLAY, and Maple Landmark!  It’s the kind of place you want to stalk because you know they’ll introduce you to new brands and products you didn’t know you couldn’t live without (but now you’re enlightened, ha!).

Maple Landmark Starter Train Set Review

Emma and I were given the opportunity to pick something from their store for review and chose this small wooden Starter Train Set from Maple Landmark.  We’ve been on a train kick lately, what with all of the train cartoons available now, and there is a real train near our church that Emma loves to watch out for.  I’ve wanted to get her a train set for awhile, but we have a very small house and I didn’t want small pieces from a huge set to get everywhere like I knew would happen if I purchased the wrong one.  So when I saw this set, I knew it was PERFECT!


Small, circular, not too many parts, and simple enough for a toddler to play with by him/herself.  :)

Product Features:

  • All parts are wood except for the magnets that connect the train cars
  • 11 pieces including 8 train tracks and the engine, passenger car, and caboose.
  • When put together the track measures 17″ in diameter
  • Nontoxic color finish
  • You can add on more train cars or tracks
  • Made in the USA

Our Thoughts & Experiences:

First of all, shipping from Wild Dill was fast and everything arrived in perfect condition.  When I opened the box that contained the train set, I got hit with the BEST smell on earth: natural hardwood.  I don’t know why it smells so good but it does!  I so appreciate the fact that everything is made in the USA (Vermont to be exact).  After I got over the lovely scent of the wood, Emma and I put the tracks together.  Each track fits to the next like a puzzle piece so that they are easy to connect to each other but still secure.  The magnets on the train cars are strong and each one is painted thoroughly in a vivid color.  The train runs smoothly on the tracks.

We have no complaints whatsoever – this is a quality toy that I hope to keep as an heirloom wooden toy.  I recommend both the Maple Landmark brand and shopping at Wild Dill!
