Wooden toys for a wholesome Christian childhood!

Hello, and welcome to Good Shepherd Toys!

You will find here our collection of wooden toys for a wholesome Christian childhood.

All toys are made by hand from natural wood, and stained and sealed with water based, child-safe paints and sealants.

These toys are made with great attention to detail and realism to honour God's creation. At the same time the toys are great for open ended play.

Our toys are made to last, and some were called collector's pieces and are bought for adults, rather than children. We hope that you will find many toys that you will love here.

Can I pay with Credit Card?

We are based in South Africa and for this reason Etsy limits the Payment Options we can offer to PayPal.

However, you can actually use your credit card to make a payment. This is how you go about it.

1. Put everything you want to buy in your basket
2. Click the "Pay with PayPal" button
3. On the next page you can do a "PayPal Guest Checkout" payment, where you can just enter your credit card details for the payment. You do not need an account with PayPal for this.

You will need to enter your email address, so that PayPal can send you an invoice.

Can I use Aramex Global Shopper for shipping?

Yes! If you have an account with Aramex Global Shopper and want to organise your own shipping, please send us a message so that we can give you better prices since you will be paying your own shipping. We are based in South Africa and you will need to use your South Africa AGS address for delivery.
