Handmade Fun 4 Children: Sweet Melly Jane Review and Giveaway


Handmade Fun 4 Children presents:
I felt so honored that Melanie from Sweet Melly Jane is a part of this event!  Melanie's shop is such a dream for a young child.  The finger puppets are a huge draw and it was no exception for my little son.  I chose to a bee, a ladybug and a raccoon.
Shrade was completely enthralled with these cute little finger puppets.  He really liked the bee partly because I sing a little song with it that points out different body parts.  He says "bug" for ladybug and "coon" for raccoon.  He seems to have at least one of these puppets on his finger during the day.
What I really liked about these finger puppets is the attention to detail that Melanie puts into her products.  Kids of all ages will have so much fun pretending and play acting with these adorable little puppets.  She has a large selection including zoo animals, barn animals, sea pals, forest and prairie animals and bugs.

Let's get to know Melanie a little bit:
*Where did you come up with the name of your shop?
My name is Melanie, and my husband calls me "Melly Jane," which is where I got the name for my shop.
*How long have you been making your products?
I have been making my products for just over eight years. I finally decided to open an Etsy shop last December.

*What do you like best about what you do?
I love that I can work from home with my kids around me. I hope they are learning that each of us has been given talents that can bless the lives of others.
*What is unique about your shop?
Even though it isn't incredibly cohesive, I love the variety available in my shop.
