*** Our Process ***
We hand draw the designs for our handmade wood toys. We then cut them out of hard maple in our backyard wood shop. Each toy goes through up to five sanding processes to make them super smooth on all sides. Next we wood burn all of the details so they will never fade. At this point we paint some of our wood toys with AP certified non-toxic watercolor, while others are left natural. Lastly, we seal the toys with natural beeswax polish.
*** About Our Toys ***
Our handmade toys are made with hard maple, which is a very dense hardwood that will allow our toys to last for multiple generations. We get our wood from a local lumber yard who sources it from a sustainable supplier. Each handmade toy is made from a different piece of wood, so grain and slight color variation may occur. Our handmade toys are hand detailed and each has its own personality, but will look very close to the original. Painted toys receive a light wash of paint instead of completely coating them, so you can still see the wood grain for a more natural texture. Our handmade toys are waldorf inspired and made with love!

*** Safety ***
We don't recommend giving our painted wooden toys or small toys to children who are still placing objects in their mouths. Our painted toys are painted with AP certified non-toxic paint and sealed with natural beeswax polish, so they are safe if a child does happen to put a toy in their mouth.
