Announcement   ATTENTION! If you are buying for Christmas, make sure to order before December 12. If you order after that date, the parcel may not arrive in time for Christmas.

We're a Canadian family, making toys in our backyard workshop. There are four of us: Liska is the idea generator, Jeffrey is the technical guy with hammers and saws, and two of our children are the first testers of all our products.

A toy is something children invest a lot of time in, and in this way it acts as a teacher. We strive to create toys that can teach children to be watchful and conscious, creative and imaginative, to care, to appreciate, and to love.

When our first child was born, we wanted him to have beautiful, natural and unique toys, so we made him a few wooden animals. Over the years, our son's interests grew, and so did the toys we made. We love reading, and so we made a lot of shadow puppets to accompany our favourite books! Dinosaurs, boats, castles, and all the things wheeled got added to our collection in due time.

At first, the toys were only for our children, who gave us inspiration with their everyday fascinations – be it animals, spaceships or letters. Then we started the blog, in which we shared projects we were working on, and after a number of requests to have them available for sale, we finally decided to let our toys out in the world and see them making friends with other children.

Please, contact us with your requests for custom toys and combination of products!

Yours,
Liska & Jeffrey
