About Karl and his work

​​ Karl is a kid at heart whose passion for collecting toys has turned into a hobby.

Karl intends for his work to be passed down for generations as heirloom pieces.

Fun fact: Many of his customers are adults who buy the toys to display for themselves at home and work and to gift to other adults. You never are too old to appreciate a quality toy! Be sure to view both pages of his listings!

When not in his garage workshop in the Pittsburgh area. He also enjoys spending time with his wife, two daughters, and the family rescue dogs.

For more info on Karl and his woodworking business, please refer to the following newspaper interview that was published in 2018: https://archive.triblive.com/local/northhills/14177823-74/gibsonia-craftsman-takes-people-back-in-time

A video discussing the advantages of wooden toys vs. plastic toys for children produced by a Waldorf education system teacher can be found here: www.youtube.com/embed/cmrCmxAwHBY?fbclid=IwAR3iZCN_8AIoR_KKIYQhmFB2ymJp1U3dwmd8duTJZmQSO83j57dlhEh-Qlc

About our items:

All unpainted items are made with non-toxic finishes: such as food-grade mineral oil and beeswax.

Most items are made of a hard species of wood for durability. Karl takes special care in selecting wood species that match the particular item or animal species.

Karl has a vast library of toy and puzzle options. Please ask us if you do not see something here on the website. Special requests are welcome! Sorry, but Karl is unable to personalize items with names or messages.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Customization is available. For example, you may wish a different size or color of the wood. Contact me, and I will let you know if there will be a price change due to the specifications that you request.
Please be aware that I do not provide personalization, which is adding a message or a person's name to an object.

Wholesale availability

I may be able to provide a small discount for wholesale purchases depending upon the item and whether customization is required. Due to the nature of my products and their time-consuming production, I do not save time by making multiple products, nor can I buy supplies in quantities that will save me money. I can only pass along a modest production or shipping discount that I will disclose to you when you make an inquiry to me. Thank you for your understanding.
