"These are the most beautiful wooden animals and stunning trees. Kathy worked with us and was understanding and so quick. This woodland set is a huge hit with our daughter and all the adults are impressed with how beautifully it is made. So so pleased!" ✽¸.•♥♥•.¸✽✽¸.•♥♥•.¸✽✽¸.•♥♥•.¸✽✽¸.•♥♥•.✽
"I've now seen many similar sets at school and friends' houses and NONE are as charming or detailed as these. This artist obviously imbues her work with love. If you can, check out a close up of the fox's expression. This is exactly the kind of object I want my daughter to interact with on a daily basis. Too beautiful and simple for words."

"So beautiful - this is a toy that will stand the test of time! I adore this play set. I love that they fit together like a puzzle, but can be played w/ separately. The pieces can be used to create an entirely different landscape and to tell a story. It's the perfect size for little hands, but not too small. 20 years from now, I could see these in their keepsake boxes. I am looking forward to purchasing more in the future!"

I love to work with wood, the smell of pine is my favorite! Growing up living in the country, my mom was always building or making something. I know that's where I got my attitude of, I can do anything I set my mind too. As an artist, I want it to look lovely, so nothing is done until every detail is perfect.
Here is my toy making process:
I start with a beautiful piece of pine, sand, draw my design, cut it out with a scroll saw, and after a lot more sanding I'm ready to put my wood burning details in place. Next comes a lovely light color wash, than more light sanding, and finally a good rub with beeswax.

    I LOVE TO Make Wooden Toys. I've been working with wood and making fun things for my own 2 boys since 1987. That's a few years now! This year I turned 55, and still love to head to the workshop every day to design something new!

Thank you for checking out my shop!
My name is Kathy, I am a mom who has made literally 100's of puzzles and toys for my own two children. From a very young age, I've painted and created things from wood. When you purchase one of my treasures, you are not only getting a toy, but a work of art! :)
I just love to create, starting out well over 30 years ago, my first son had just turned 2, when I made him the "first" puzzle, with the same scroll saw I'm still using! Every toy or puzzle I make, I do all the sawing, sanding, gluing, designing, painting and finishing. I've been a one women show from the beginning!

DESCRIPTION: Each toy I make is a true one of a kind. I just love to draw new and different designs with each piece of wood. When I've got a piece of pine on my workbench, ready to create a new piece, I look at the knots and try to incorporate them into a tree to give it a natural look. The colors I choose to paint on a piece are usually just a whim that I have for that day. Sometimes, they are just a bit odd, but I always end up with a truly unique toy, that will be a One of A Kind Treasure for your child to use for years to come. My toys are always Heirloom Quality, and can be passed on from generation to generation.

Shipping
Check on the listing you purchase, I usually always ship Priority USPS mail. There is always a tracking number provided. If it's a smaller item, I might ship it 1st Class Mail, to save you on shipping costs.

I always package carefully and try to use recycled or up cycled materials (Boxes - Packing Materials - etc!!), because saving the environment, and our natural resources are very important to me. My wooden treasures are quite unbreakable, there is usually very little risk of damage during shipping.

Please notice: EVERY ITEM in my shop is complete and ready to ship the day you purchase, unless it's later in the day, I will ship the next morning!! Most items are shipped PRIORITY, so you will receive them in 2 - 3 days. (Of course this always depends on the Post Office).





I will gladly insure your purchase if you request. Please let me know before your purchase. Thank you!

I will ship to Canada, but I use International 1st Class instead of Priority. So, it takes a bit longer to get to you. Please let me know you're from Canada, before I make your Custom Listing, Thanks!
Refunds and Exchanges
For CUSTOM ORDERS, or special requested items: I do not offer refunds, so be sure when you request a Custom Order your instructions are clear. Thank you!
