This toy is a throwback to toys when I was young. The toy itself is sturdy and attractive! But it really comes to life when any child (in this case my Grandson) takes the toy and, using their own imagination, create fun memories.

A Portrait of the Artist: Friendly Toys

Friendly toys which smell like a forest

We, Sigita, Donatas, Saule and Goda, are a family. Even before the arrival of our baby we’ve already felt the importance of the bond between nature and a child. Therefore we left busy city life of Vilnius and moved to the place where trees touch the sky. Inspired by watching our daughter grow we began creating wooden toys. Later on more and more people were willing to give their children the joy of playing with eco and human friendly toys that we make. Finding pictures of smiling little clients holding our manufactured toys or warm thank you letters in the inbox was (and still is) a constant encouragement to maintain our business. We are glad that now not only Lithuanian children but also those who live across the Atlantic enjoy playing with our wooden creatures. Friendly toys can be found at homes where babies haven’t even arrived yet – wooden toys which smell like a forest appear to be perfect decorations for those who love handcrafted interior elements.

Why are our toys friendly? First of all, the materials which we use are 100% natural and biodegradable: birch, natural „Milk Paint“ paint, linen strings and cold-pressed linen seed oil which has both natural scent and moisture protection quality. Secondly, the toys are born in the family and inspired by its smallest member. Thus in the environment full of love toys are infused with nothing but friendliness and good energy.

Our world is full of hypnotizing snails, spinach loving dogs, sheep waiting for fairytales, horses pasturing in wild strawberry fields, fashionable helicopters, buses full of mushroom pickers and other forest animals and visitors. Find your child a new, safe and lovely friend here!

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

Gift wrapping and packaging

The wooden toy arrives ready to give in a reusable linen bag with a tag that includes short description and care instructions. We don't offer special gift wrapping, although we can add a short gift note to the packing. Please include the inscription in the "note to seller" box when you check out.

Custom and personalized orders

Personalize the wooden toy with anything you want. Text will be written as seen in the photos. Please specify your personalization in the "note to seller" when you check out and the grammar will appear just as specified.

Care instructions

Wood is naturally anti-bacterial. It's true! Bacteria generally do not sustain life for long and does not duplicate on wood like it can on plastic. However, if you feel the need to wash the toy:

• wash gently and quickly with soap and lukewarm water. Avoid soaking.
• let it dry completely.
• lightly sand with fine sandpaper unpainted areas.
• refinished with any food-safe oil

It is impossible to get full water resistance with natural materials. Thus, we do not recommend using these toys when playing with the water or placing painted toys to the mouth.
