About

Building childhood memories

Welcome to Jacobs Wooden Toys!
" Feel free to grow up, but never stop playing..."
We believe, that imaginative play is one of the most stimulating types of play for children, and is essential for proper development. So some of the best toys you can get your child are ones that aren't limited to a specific use and allow them to create their own worlds.

Jacobs Wooden Toys was born out of our dream to have an online shop and our online presence on Etsy was established in 2009.
We love having a flexibility and being able to stay home and be there for our kids as much as possible. It makes us happy to offer our product online, while reaching audiences worldwide and offering a safe shopping experience from the comfort of your own home.
Our family lives in a small town in Alberta, Canada. We love it here, where store clerks know you and your kids (kids always look forward to their treat!), people greet each other on the street. It's a lovely slow paced life. We love summers here, where we can put our little boats outside for varnish to dry.
Building product and managing our online shop is a full time job for us. Tim is the talented man behind all our wooden items, who constantly works on design and manufacturing, improving the existing product for easier shipping.
The very beginnings of the business can be found almost 30 years ago. We are very thankful to Tim's parents- Carl and Irene for the knowledge of building and running a business they have shared with us.
Our goal has always been building sturdy, whimsical, lasting dollhouses, doll furniture and more suitable for younger children, inspired by clean, simple lines of Scandinavian design.
We use locally harvested pine/spruce from Northern Alberta and Baltic birch. We use up pretty much every piece of wood we have, as a lot of parts for the items we produce are small. Wood shavings from the shop we often use in our garden (our son Jacob loves to use them in his veggie patch:) and any extra surplus goes to the local compost.
We believe, children love the open space concept in our dollhouses and barns, where they are in charge where items (furniture etc.) could be placed, changed every day, if wished so. That way children are engaged in a creative play and storytelling much longer. We upholster our doll furniture, to make comfy beds and couches for those special dollies:) We love adding little whimsical touches, like- hearts, decorative buttons, flower boxes, shutters, railings, to make our dollhouses different from other wooden dollhouses on Etsy. Our dollhouse and barn doors open and close. We know, how much younger ones love testing the doors:) Did you know, our barn can easily be turned into a farm house, by adding some furniture?
.
We do not have additional employees, so everything that is built, is built by Tim. Brigita (me) helps with upholstering couches and beds, making sure questions/emails are responded to and orders filled on time, while keeping an eye on Jacob and Nora... Life is very busy these days, but we are immensely thankful to all our customers for their continuing support by choosing our toys.

Other businesses featuring our product:

-Little boats: at S.S.Klondike Historical Site's gift shop in Yukon and Denver Zoo Northern Shores playground/water play area.
-Little wooden goalie sticks (with hockey sculptures at Top Shelf Goalies online shop).

While visiting our store, please know that you're ordering from a small, family run business. Our children know how hard their parents work and how much joy and gratitude each sale brings. It is a great proof to our children that if you're willing to work hard and be patient, you can accomplish a lot.

Best Regards,
Tim, Brigita, Jacob and Nora Cornwell

Welcome to Jacobs Wooden Toys! Our children-friendly wooden dollhouses, barns and all the wooden items are designed and handcrafted in Alberta, Canada.
**************************
-FAQ...
Q: I need an item fast, by a certain date. Can you guarantee the delivery date?

A: Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee the delivery by a specific date. Once package is taken to the post office as soon as possible, unfortunately we have no control from that point on how fast it will be delivered. We do offer shipping upgrades for better chances of faster delivery (USA and Canada). If interested, please contact us prior to ordering.
We can not be held responsible for any out of our control shipping delays (customs, Canada and USA holidays, weather etc.) once a package has been taken to the post office. If you are concerned about a possible delay, please contact us via Etsy and we will look into the matter for you to the best of our ability. We can not be held responsible for lost or stolen packages, or packages held in customs. Thank you for your understanding.

Q.-I am interested in buying several items, but when I add these items to my cart, shipping is very high. How can I change that?

A.- Why not get a custom listing set up just for you! Simply contact us with a list of your items and your location and get a quick response from us with a special combined shipping rate savings. As our product varies in size and weight (from a single tug boat to a furnished dollhouse), it is very hard to determine an accurate combined shipping cost, when proceeding to Etsy checkout with several items in various sizes in cart. . Please don't hesitate to contact us about setting up a listing for you, as we reply promptly:)
Or, you can proceed to the checkout and any shipping overpayment will be refunded back to your account. Thank you!

Q.- What kind of paints/finishes do you use?

A.- Our painted toys are safe for children. We use AP Certified non-toxic paint, as well as non-toxic gloss finish (water base). If you would like to order your toy in natural wood with no finish, please contact us. Thank you!

Q.- Do your dollhouses and barn sets come in kit form?

A.- No. Our dollhouses, furniture and farm sets all come fully assembled, ready to enjoy! No building required.

Q.- Do you offer a free product for draws/giveaways/blog reviews/donations?

A.- You are welcome to use photos of our product and write about it in a blog... however, unfortunately we can not afford to give away free product for draws/giveaways/blog reviews/donations. Thank you for your understanding!

Q.- I am interested in purchasing your doll furniture set. What size doll would fit with it?

A.- Our furniture fits dolls/toys, that are about 3- 3.5 inches (up to 4 inches) tall. We have been told, peg dolls and wooden bendy dolls from Plan toys, Calico Critters fit great with our furniture:) Please note: our doll furniture and accessories are scaled to fit our dollhouses and are not guaranteed to fit well with other dollhouses in the market. Please see the sizing listed with each furniture piece before ordering. Thank you!

Q.- Do you offer a discount to larger quantity purchases?

A.- Yes! We offer a discount on large orders of mini hockey sticks (100 or more), tug boats, TV sets (usually 10% with a purchase of 10 or more). Please contact us for details:)

Q.-What kind of packaging do you use to ship your items in?

A.- We use recycled packaging as much as possible. For filler, we normally use shredded paper, styrofoam peanuts, newspaper, flyers collected from local post office (all product is initially wrapped in plastic, to avoid any transfer of newspaper ink), as well as a bubble wrap and/or air pockets and cardboard boxes claimed from local businesses.

Q.- Can I get items shipped to more than one location?

A.- Yes! Please make a separate purchase for EACH ship-to address.

Q.- Can I get a note included with the shipment?

A.- Absolutely! Just let us know in the "Note to Seller" box and we will include a personalized note at no extra charge.

Q.- I have received an Etsy gift card, but unsure how to use it...

A.- Here is the link, that might help:)

====================================
Please note: due to wonderful nature of the wood, there might be a slight variation in the color/grain of the wood in the item(-s) you will receive, comparing to the one pictured in the listing, which makes each piece unique and special.

Q.- Do you offer a lay-away?

A.- Yes! Just contact us for more info, so we can adapt the lay-way to fit your preferences.

Q.- Can I order a dollhouse for a boy?

A.- No problem! We would be delighted to build a dollhouse/toy house for a boy. Our doll houses can be modified for boys with the color- we have blue, green color, dark plum for dollhouse panels, diamond shaped wood cutouts instead of wooden hearts on the trim, no pink flowers... Also, we offer a selection of boyish furniture upholstery fabrics (choices are listed with all the furniture set listings).

Jacobs Wooden Toys can not be held responsible for any out of our control shipping delays (customs, Canada and USA holidays, weather etc.) once a package has been taken to the post office. We can not be held responsible for lost packages and do not offer refunds for lost packages or stolen packages, or packages held in customs.

Please note that the package is not lost, until 30 days after shipping (Canada and the USA).

Q.- What is your shipping schedule?

A.- Items are shipped Monday through Friday, because our post office is closed on weekends and Canada Holidays. Any purchases "ready to ship", made on a Friday evening, will ship out on the following Monday. Special orders may take longer to complete and ship.
We ship via Canada Post small packet mail, tracked packet mail and expedited parcel mail (most economical options).
PLEASE NOTE: If Canada Post Xpresspost option is preferred (at an additional charge), please contact us BEFORE making a purchase, as the shipping label requires customer's phone number. Thank you for understanding.

Q.-I live in Canada. Why do shipping costs seem high if items are shipped within Canada?

A.- Shipping costs within Canada are higher for small parcels comparing to the USA. Unfortunately, Canada Post does not offer more economical shipping options for small parcels. The good news- you can save by combining several items to be shipped together. Please contact us for more info and shipping estimate, if you would like to purchase several items, as costs vary by province.
**************************************************
If you would like to add tracking and insurance for your small packet, please contact us PRIOR to purchase and I will adjust the shipping rate.
PLEASE NOTE: tracked packet costs are significantly higher.
***************************************************
Shipping takes approx. 7-10 business days via Canada Post air mail to most locations in the USA (once parcels cross the border, they are in a care of USPS). Times are estimates only and are not guaranteed. Business days are Monday to Friday. Customs may open or hold your package without any prior notice.
During Holidays, customs clearance can take 1-2 weeks. Please keep this in mind, when making a purchase during busy Holiday Season. Thank you!

***We can not issue a refund for orders, that do not arrive "on time", due to postal delays. Thank you for your understanding.****

Q.- Do you ship internationally?

A.- Due to high shipping costs and possible damage, unfortunately we are not able to ship our large items, such as dollhouses, barns etc. overseas, but we can ship doll furniture and small accessories. Please contact us for the shipping quote. Please keep in mind, international shipping does take a long time.
