Wooden Toys & Non Toxic Paints
We are big big lovers of wooden toys! Shocking... i know ;)
There is something so beautiful and timeless about wooden toys.
When we first began our toy store journey we were mainly stocking our shelves with just wooden toys, we have come along way since our first days but our big love of wooden toys has not wavered. We now stock over 300 beautiful wooden toys on our shelves!
They are so durable and just last and last, that's a big thing for me, keeping our children's toys out of landfill, i love that a lot of the wooden toys we sell today will be loved and kept in the family to pass down through the generations. If they brake they can often be easily fixed. I love how our range of wooden toys are non toxic, the paints used contain no BPA, PVC or any other toxic nasties, we buy toys that are FSC accredited meaning the timber used is sustainable sourced and ethically made!
In the fast paced world we live in today, i take solace that the ' toys ' or tools we are engaging our children in promote open ended play, where their imagination is needed. There is no button operated instant gratification, a lot of our wooden toys promote problem solving and creativity. All that good stuff we want our children's minds to be engaged in!
Wooden toys can be more pricey then their plastic mass produced counterparts but well worth ever dollar, the prices reflect the ethical and sustainable practices, i am a big fan of the Buy Less, Choose well, Make it last attitude
