Welcome to A Summer Afternoon! We are a husband and wife team making wooden cars, rattles, teethers, blocks, developmental, Waldorf and Montessori toys. All of our products are made with love out of quality, natural, eco-friendly materials, safety-tested and approved by our own young children. Whenever possible, we use untreated re-purposed wood, and recycled packaging materials.
We started this business so that we could really enjoy this time as a family while our boys are young, and because we wanted our boys to have quality, natural toys that are handmade in the USA. When coming up with designs for our toys, we always keep in mind the developmental skills we would love to encourage in our own children, such as fine and gross motor skills, sorting, counting, and especially creativity and imagination.
All of our products are finished with non-toxic, child-safe linseed oil (comes from flaxseed) or natural food-safe beeswax. We pride ourselves in making safe, fun, beautiful products that are durable enough to be passed down for generations.
