When I was little girl, my little sister and I used to open up mail order catalogues and pick out one item from each page. It was a way to dream about what we would buy if we had the money. Our favourite as the Sears Wish catalogue, with so many wonderful toys! Did you know that most of those mail order gift catalogues are still around and or that they are even better than ever? I went hunting online to find you a selection of the weird, fun and unique mail-order catalogues available to request today!

With this assortment of mail-order catalogues to choose from, you can be creative - with fun things for kids, or gag gifts for your family. My son loved cardboard boxes - one time we made him a whole city in our living room out of cardboard boxes. Office supply catalogues provide lots of interesting gifts for work-at-home moms!

Are you looking for baby products from Bummis, Fisher Price or Safety 1st? With the internet, there really is no need for requesting a print catalogue. You could just use the following links to find a quick and convenient list of all their products on Amazon.com.

Baby Einstein, Boon, Boppy, Bravado bras, Britax USA, Bummis, Bumkins, Burt's Bees, California Baby, Earth's Best, The First Years, Fisher Price, gDiapers, Gerber, Imse Vimse, Johnson's, Kissaluvs, Kushies, Lamaze Toys, Manhattan Toys, Medela, Munchkin, My Brest Friend, Nature Babycare, Playtex, Prince Lionheart, Real Nappies, Safety 1st, Seventh Generation, Snappi, Summer Infant, and Weleda

Why would you choose to shop at Amazon versus any other mail-order baby catalogues? Two words - Amazon Family - an Amazon membership program created especially for parents and caretakers of small children. Amazon Family offers members exclusive family-oriented offers, coupons, age-based recommendations, 20% off diaper subscriptions and a 15% Baby Registry completion discount!

If this is your first baby, you might not know this, but having a baby changes everything! You will be frequently needing or running out of supplies, and every time you need to go to the store, you've have to get aninfant ready as well as yourself, load the baby into the car seat or wait for a bus, with only a narrow window before your little one will be tired and cranky and hungry - or you have to arrange for child care if you don't take the baby with you.

With Amazon Family, you can have all your baby supplies delivered within two business days - automatically. If you have a desperate need for something - diapers, teething gel or even groceries, you can have it overnighted to you for just $4.00. Isn't that worth it? Not to have to drag a cranky baby out to the store when you haven't been able to get any sleep yourself, because your little one is teething or not well?

I asked my readers: Anyone still request mail order catalogues in this Internet age? I am looking for weird, fun and unique mail order catalogues you can request - child-related is good, but doesn't have to be.

Here are some of their responses:

  • I do, because I can take them with me to appointments and find and mark the things I like, then order online later. Can't always access the internet with my computer while sitting in a doctor's office...
  • Yes! - I love to flip through real pages, not virtual ones!
  • I do. I love mail order catalogs!!
  • I make goodie bags for my children's classrooms. I would not be able to make 40 goodie bags each holiday without my Oriental Trading Company catalog.
  • I love catalogs and get them all the time. I love looking at the pages instead of the computer.
  • Yes. I also find that catalogs give me a much better view of colors/ideas than online. Often the online version will be only the item, but it's matched with other items and on models in the catalogs.
  • I love mail order catalogs! Don't really have a favorite tho...
  • they are good to go through when you are bored.
  • Love the internet, but there is nothing like thumbing through a craft catalog. Guess that's not Eco of me huh!

I asked my readers: What are your favourite mail-order catalogues?

Here are some of their responses:

  • Hearth Song is a great one for unique items for kids of all ages.
  • Lakeside is always good!
  • Things You Never Knew Existed
  • I LOVE the What on Earth catalogues - we pass them around in the office for great laughs.
  • I too LOVE What on Earth, we just got the newest one yesterday in fact.
  • LTD Commodities has great items for even better prices.
  • We also like National Geographic's catalog and the Vermont Country Store
  • Love LTD Commodities or Fingerhut
  • I also use LTD Commodities and Figis
  • Fun and kid oriented would be Oriental Trading. Great for filling stockings when there lots of little ones in the family. They also have cool themed items for grown up parties, etc.
  • Lehman's - they have all manner of non-electric things, plus they have 'old-fashioned' kids toys.
  • Another vote for Lakeside Catalog, as well as Lakeshore Learning. Pricey, but some good ideas.
  • I don't know about the my fav one, but Sears is the most boring.
