On the 9th day of Christmas, my true love gave me the gift of imagination and play with a treasure trove of timeless toys from The Hedgehog Shop. Creative design consultant Teresa Roviras founded Hedgehog when her children were born. “I wanted to build them a collection of classic toys — many simple, made of wood or natural materials — that reminded me of my own childhood,” she says.
