Creative Toys for Independent Kids
IndieBambino is a labor of love; I create, design and finish every single piece that leaves my shop ( with the exception of a few pieces my husband puts together with the big drill ). I am also a mother, a wife, and an active community member. I work nights, weekends, and holidays and I am a real flesh and blood person, not a corporation. Handmade means made by my hands, please rest assured that anything you receive from IndieBambino is the best I am able to achieve and finished with heart and spirit by my own two hands. When I work it is with intention and the desire to create something that imparts a sense of joy in the recipient.
Customer satisfaction is paramount. I stand behind my products and care about your feedback. Please feel free to contact me any time with questions, concerns, feedback, or anything else under the sun. At IndieBambino profit is not my number one motivator, but rather happy kids and satisfied customers. I make each item one at a time, everything from my shop is unique and created with the intention to impart joy in the recipient. I'm a mother too, like many of you, and quality matters to me as well as connection to each and every one of my customers.
*******REGARDING PAINTS & FINISHES*******
I offer three different finishes for teethers; organic flax seed oil, organic coconut oil and all natural beeswax and olive oil. Each finish is food-grade and chemical free and safe for teething. Here is the breakdown on the benefits of each:
Organic Flax Seed Oil: We use 100% certified organic food-grade Flax Seed Oil as a finishing product for our wooden teething rings and toys. The oil moisturizes the wood and gives a beautiful color. When ingested flax is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and is a wonderful source of omega-3 fatty acids. (Please note, any bits or flakes you see attached to the ring after being coated with flax oil is the remnants of flax fiber present in the oil and it is 100% safe to consume).
Beeswax & Olive Oil: A handmade wood creme I make myself with clean US sourced beeswax, extra virgin olive oil and a dash of organic flax for a deep rich wood color. Beeswax is known to offer anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-viral benefits. We do not call our beeswax "organic" because bees can travel 3-4 miles from their hives to collect nectar and there is no way to verify if each and every flower pollinated is organically grown.
Organic Coconut Oil: 100% certified organic un-refined coconut oil. Coconut oil is an anti-fungal agent, inherently anti-bacterial, and it can also help to prevent tooth decay while maintaining healthy gums. For centuries people in tropical climates have used coconut oil as a cleaning agent for their teeth.
Paint: The paints I use are AP certified 100% non-toxic acrylic paints and watercolors. Some painted toys are finished with our homemade beeswax wood creme and others are finished with 100% genuine non-toxic Shellac, derived from Lac Beetles -- the gold standard for a safe, fume free non-toxic durable finish. Because Shellac is derived naturally, it can become cloudy if gotten wet for a prolonged period.
