Why wood toys? And what makes them awesome?

1 Our teethers are chemical and toxin-free
Wooden toys are much safer all-natural alternative to plastic toys as the plastic toys can leach chemicals and toxins. This is particularly important with babies who tend to put everything into their mouths. Our teethers are laser engraved on Canadian maple which is a safe hardwood and sanded with several levels of sand paper to create a lustrous shine. The toys are finished with a baby safe unscented beeswax polish (beeswax, olive oil, carnauba wax). That's it! Our product are a 100% all natural/food safe. Wood toys are not only great but they are beneficial for your baby!

2. Wood toys are cleaner
Did you know that wood has natural anti-bacterial properties? There is a common misconception that wood toys are not as clean as plastic toys. But wood has naturally occurring antibacterial properties that out perform plastics with continued use. Reasons for the antibacterial effect may be: That the porous and hygroscopic properties of wood take the moisture away from the bacteria, which they need to survive (desiccation physical reason). Wood ingredients (polyphenols or tannins) cause the antibacterial effect (chemical reason).

3. Better for environmental health:
Wooden toys are much better for the environment that plastic toys. Buy wood toys means you are lessening your carbon footprint on the earth. Plastic toys are not biodegradable, and will fill land fills and pollute the environment. Wooden toys are made from a renewable resource, and are biodegradable and are going to last longer than plastic toys. This means in addition to all the above mentioned benefits, you can hand them down generation to generation. As an added benefit, our toys are made from wood scrap and small pieces that the mills wouldn't be able to sell. But we can use them and make something great for your child.

Our teethers are 100% all natural, the wands and other toys are colored with food coloring and child safe tempra paints/water colors. It is important to us to make toys that are unique, chemical free and fun!

Don't be afraid to convo for something completely customized. We love a challenge! :)
