little alouette & us

Little Alouette reinvented a way of thinking of natural toys. We breathed life back into the wooden teething industry by creating the first modern and fun shapes that the country had seen in a long time. Modern families want natural {old school} toys but they want them funky and gorgeous and safe. We do that at Little Alouette. We do it best.

Over a decade ago a handsome British boy and an Ohio lass met and fell madly in love at first site in a sleepy university town. The boy was a classically trained master carpenter and the girl a writer with a bit of wanderlust.

They worked together creatively through the years on many projects involving woodworking as they restored and remodeled homes together. The boy taught his love about trees on their land in the country and how to use power tools and the girl read poems to him while they worked. They started a sweet family & began creating wooden toys for them.

They decided to share these wee wooden toys with the world and Little Alouette, LLC was born over hot steaming mugs of cocoa in during a cold cold winter.

Hello you beautiful thing.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out the wood for wee ones here on Etsy.
Little Alouette is so pleased to have you. We make each piece with love. We are a custom bespoke wood toy shop- not a factory.

//Natural teething toys//
Do you guys use paints, varnish, or stains?
NOPE! All we ever use is non toxic organic flax seed oil
Wood is anti-bacterial& non-allergenic!
If you want raw OHIO hardwoods- just let us know.

Each toy comes with a gorgeous wee wood care guide!
It will give you information on how to keep that toy ready for future generations.
I wanted to share a few tips with you though::
If your toy seems to dull and become a bit rough with drool and chomping- just take a fine grit sanding pad and bring it back to life. It is that simple. Also- you can use any organic flax seed oil to finish or yr own beeswax! Follow the directions {simple} on the care card and this toy will be around forever! xo

❝Each product is made by hand and usually all the wood is surrounded by cups of tea, laughing children, and disco music so each product will come to you infused with love and bliss!❞

We have three sections:

Little Alouette babies and lil ones
Middle Alouette bigger toddlers and up
Big Alouette ADULTS only
