Announcement   Orders received no later than November 30th, 2016 are guaranteed for delivery before Christmas. Thank you for shopping ForeverAfters. We are here, simply, because we believe that children's toys should endure the wear and tear of a life time. We make much more than a toy, we hand-make a learning experience that will last...ForeverAfters. Our enduring hope is that your children will enjoy this experience as much as we have. If you have made a purchase needed by a definite deadline, please let us know when you order. If it is within reason we will get it to you in time. If not, we will let you know. A note about shipping: sadly, because the weight of wood can change drastically from one piece to another, we are not able to use calculated shipping.

ABOUT FINISHES - Your children's safety and happy play is our primary concern. Making a close second is your peace of mind. For this reason, we offer a variety of finishes that will provide flexibility for every priority in your life style.

Our own beeswax finish is chemical free, we use only 100% organic food quality waxes and oils. It is a natural product so it must be reapplied every two or three months to retain it's water resistant properties. Toys are easily cleaned by refreshing the beeswax finish. In keeping with this eco-friendly choice, we offer vegetable stains as opposed to painted accent colors, however, these colors are somewhat more subdued and are available with limited options. Please contact us for a list of vegetable dye color options.

Polyurethane is a petroleum product that is non-toxic when dry and provides good protection for the toys and furnishings. It is washable with a damp cloth and does not require reapplication for the life of the toy. We use only non-toxic and lead-free paint for all accent colors on polyurethane product.

In some instances, the best product for your family may be unfinished wood. We will happily accommodate this need upon request and at no extra charge.

stunning work! strong wood and vinyl looks very professional for daycare classroom. note: single seat is only 12 inches wide. for daycare you should order at least 15-17 inches wide. it looks a bit tiny at 12 inches and not as comfy and inviting. Shipped very well packed and really easy to assemble. the owners were very accommodating and answered all my questions in a timely fashion. thanks for a great purchase!

About

Growing ForeverAfters...the job of a lifetime.

Married over 40 years with 5 children and 8 grandchildren, we've had a lot of experience over the years entertaining our young. Add to that a lifetime of experience educating children as teacher and children's pastors and you have the perfect mix.

We started seriously making wooden toys as daycare directors. Since our efforts to find quality yet affordable toys for the young children we served seemed to be the never ending battle, frustration was growing high while the budget shrunk ever smaller. Given this, we decided to make our own.

Starting with the Space Saver Stroller and an Ironing Set, we found that we could do a better job for far less than anything else we could find! The years flew by, we continued making toys, and it just naturally evolved into doing the thing we loved and as we reached our retirement years, ForeverAfters was born. (We are simply not the type to actually retire!)

The four or five toys that we began with years ago have now grown into the 50 plus toys that fill our Etsy shop. One thing however has not changed. Our passion is still to make high quality toys that will grow children in the valuable life experiences they need to become mature, productive members of their families and the world around them.

Our desire is to live our lives in our home, our church and our business with the integrity that will bring glory to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, ForeverAfters.
