Veronica and James Leonard's Profile

About

**AS SEEN ON MOTHERING.COM'S NATURAL TOY GUIDE & ON THE GREEN MAMA BLOG!**

We are two parents who love handcrafting natural and worry-free fun. All our products are handmade in our home workshop and are heirloom quality. Buying local was already something we valued as a family, so it was important for us to continue practicing it in our business. That is why we make a point of ensuring that the wood we use is from regional species only, is responsibly managed, and locally milled. We also guarantee that the finish we use is 100% non toxic, organic, and Canadian. Disclosure is our middle name! If you have any questions or comments about our toys, please feel free to send us an email to Info [at] PaintedTurtleWoodenToys [dot] ca. We’d love to hear from you!

About James (aka the woodworker): Perfectionist to the hilt and completely dedicated to his craft (and his son—he’s a work at home dad!). Loves the feel of working with wood, knowing that the toys he makes are completely safe, and performing his own brand of extreme toy testing.

About Veronica (aka the office administrator): Office worker by day, Etsy seller by night! Loves natural parenting, hearing back from customers about how their babes like their new Painted Turtle toy, and has learned to live with wood shavings and sawdust sprinkled around the house.
