Handmade toys for growing kindness and imagination

Tiny Kind Toys

Hand painted wooden peg dolls and natural materials play sets for growing kindness and imagination.
-All toys are handmade by me and created with artistry and care.
-Each peg doll is hand drawn and painted with their own unique personalities

These one-of-a-kind toys are made from natural materials and are hand painted with artist grade acrylic non-toxic paints.
They are made with enviromental impact and sustainability in mind for green toys that can last for generations.
-Plastic-free packaging
-I believe that being kind to the earth is one of the most important things we can do for our children. So we try to package our toys in reusable, recycled or recyclable materials.

It's one more little way we try to make the world a kinder place.





About Me:
I have always dreamed of being an artist, and the second I was old enough I packed my bags and headed off for the big city of Toronto to pursue my calling. I graduated in 2003 with a Fine Arts diploma from The Ontario College of Art and Design, and then studied Digital Publishing and Children’s Book Illustration at George Brown College. While working my way up to become a retail manager, I continued to learn from online resources and some very good books, and charted my own path to become a self-employed illustrator.

Since the birth of my three children, my focus and priorities have changed. I find happiness in nature, stories and simple acts of kindness and my goal is to put this happiness into my toys in the most diverse and inclusive way I can.
It brings me great joy to bring the charactures of my imagination to life as toys for children to play with and create their own stories for. There isn't a story I can create for them that is as richly imagined and elaborately played out as the ones they create for themselves. I foster this by creating open-ended toys that fuel their creativity while encouraging a kind, caring and inclusive environment.

Tiny Kind Toys is the culmination of my skill as an artist, my knowledge in retail and the wisdom I've gathered in Motherhood.

    Owner

    I always wanted to be an artist, but after graduating from OCAD in 2003 I worked for many years in retail. However, Motherhood has brought me back to my love, and Tiny Kind Toys is the perfect culmination of these three facets of my life.
