Babies aren't complicated - So why should their toys be?

Babies don't need much: They need food, they need a safe place to sleep, they need love. And yes, they do need diaper changes and baths too. But really, their needs are quite simple and so should their toys be.

Happy Little Gnome is a small family-run toy company based in Nova Scotia, Canada. We started this business because we wanted to provide an alternative to the many plastic and battery-operated toys out there marketed towards infants and young children. We believe that toys don't need to be complicated or flashy. Low-tech toys made from natural materials are not only pleasing to the eye, but they help encourage imagination and help with different areas of development too, like hand-eye coordination, gross motor movements and fine motor skills. All that, and not a single battery required!


We strive to provide heirloom-quality toys made with the finest materials Mother Nature has to offer. Keeping the earth healthy is important to us, so we do our best to be mindful when selecting materials for products, packaging and shipping. Our goal is to one day run our workshop using energy solely generated from solar and wind power, and a small portion of each sale is put towards local clean energy initiatives.
