AjsArts - Felt Travel Game Review and Giveaway

Today I want to introduce you to a truly talented artist and craftsperson - A.J. from AjsArts!

A.J. sells custom art work
along with child inspired jewelry,


and fun felt toys.


She managed to take two classic games (Checkers and Dominoes) and combine them into the perfect travel toy.


The board is actually a bag with a checkerboard on one side and a solid domino board on the other.


The bag design keeps everything compact and tucked away until wanted. And everything is made from felt, making it easy to hold onto little pieces during play time.

We recently took ours on our 12 hour road trip. My daughter didn't quite get checkers, but she loved the dominoes! I was amazed that instead of just being cut out, every piece was sewn for lasting durability. My mom (who was with us on our trip) informed me that most of the stitching was done by hand and not with a sewing machine.

I grew up playing dominoes and checkers, and I loved this new compact version! And you can love it too!

To Buy It - All of the above products can be purchased online at the AjsArts Etsy Shop. And if you buy now, your purchase could benefit the Gulf Coast. 50% of selected items is donated to the National Wildlife Foundation.
