Mary Grace Bernstein is the talented NYC-based photographer behind many of the beautiful images you see here on Rose & Rex, and mama to two beautiful girls, Olive (6) & Ophelia (2). Her children’s clothing collection, In the Willows, is set to debut in 2020!
When I choose gifts for the girls there are always a few things that I keep in mind. I like the toys to inspire play and creativity, have longevity and be made of materials from our earth. We live in a small space so everything that we own has to hold purpose, including the toys. I look at them as investments — heirlooms to be played with constantly and hopefully passed down. The toys that get the most love in our house are our building blocks, maileg mouse collection and stuffed animals.
