Announcement    This toy shop is open to fulfilling your child's learning and adult creativity. For fast shipping, I carry over thousands of natural unfinished wooden items that in most cases I can ship that day or the very next. All my painted wooden toys are hand painted with certified non-toxic acrylic paint and sealed with two layers of a certified non-toxic protective top coat sealer. Natural and chemical free is important to me and that's why none of my wooden products have been treated with such. Ask me about large bulk quantity discounts on all my items.

If you are like me and love Pinterest or you are a DIY type of person, all my wooden pieces come unfinished for your creative projects and inspiration. My wooden pieces are good for so many fun ideas, wedding decor, home decor, kid crafts, scrapbooking, jewelry making and so much more.

About ToyingAround

Its a Kid Thing

Hello,
In 2009 I discovered that I possessed a hidden talent and love for painting. I decided to opened my HobKnobin.etsy.com. I had such great success I decided to open up my second Etsy shop called Toying Around. My children couldn't be happier seeing and playing with my new wooden toys, activities and games. This also allows me to see if my ideas are kid friendly, entertaining and if they are durable enough to handle the rough play from my little ones.

Thank you for taking the time to look through my portfolio.

This shop was created for the inner child in me. Keeping quality in mind, I created each piece as if my children were receiving them as a gift. I'm bringing back what toys used to be all about, durability, eco- friendly, no batteries or loud noises, just the imagination and steam power of your child. I welcome all "childish" ideas!

I've now expanded my shop to offer unfinished DIY wooden treasures. These pieces are good for so many fun ideas, wedding decor, home decor, kid crafts, scrap booking, jewelry making and so much more.

Returns and exchange details
I hope you are satisfied with your purchase, however- if you are not, here are my return policies. With custom orders, I will not accept any refund what so ever. Custom orders are considered anything hand-painted or that you don't see already selling within my shop. For all other returns, they must be sent in the original condition and returned within 7 business days of the date shown by tracking that it was delivered. A tracking number must be provided to ensure proper tracking. Please include the name you purchased your item with or any other information that will help me locate your order in a more timely manner. Upon receiving and inspecting your items for no physical damage or showing any signs related to the use of the product I will issue a credit of the purchase price minus a 5% of the total purchase restocking fee. Any shipping cost related to your order will not be returned. Please note return shipping cost are at your expense. To avoid all returns, communication is key!
Payment
I accept, Paypal and all major credit cards, which are processed through Etsy and Personal Checks. Please note that all payment must be cleared before I will ship your item.
Shipping
-Domestic Shipping-Unless you select otherwise all items are shipped USPS first class mail, which will reach you in 3-5 business days. If you would like them sooner, please select priority 2-3 business days or express mail shipping 1-2 business days upon checkout. I have made all efforts to try and get shipping pricing to be exact. There are some cases where I may contact you after your purchase to collect any additional amount due in shipping. I will send you a screenshot of exactly how much Etsy is charging me to ship your items. I'll include an invoice link for you check out on for the additional shipping. Shipping is extremely hard to get exactly when shipping multiple items and especially since I ship natural products where the weight varies from wood to wood. If your package is delayed by unforeseen weather conditions or the delivery truck can not make it to your destination on time, there is no way for me to obtain a refund from the delivery service, therefore- I can not refund shipping or your order for these circumstances.

-International Shipping- If you do not purchase insurance or tracking information there is no way for me to track your package once it leaves the US, therefore I can not be responsible for your package being lost in the mail. Most international first class mail shipments take 6-10 business days, however- I have seen them take up to a month due to customs. With international packages, I can not guarantee the mail service and will NOT refund your money if priority mail or insurance is not purchased.

-UK BUYERS: Please be aware of the import VAT (20%) and an additional processing fee charged by the post office of £8 on any orders over £15. These additional costs are NOT included in the item and shipping price.

With all packages international and domestic:
If your package is not received by the expected delivery time I can not be held responsible and will not issue a refund. Tracking numbers showing your package has been delivered, but you didn't receive the package I'll be more than happy to help you file a missing package report on usps.com. I will not issue a refund for tracking numbers showing delivered. Ask to purchase insurance if you think receiving your package is going to be a problem.
Additional policies and FAQs
All pricing in my shop is subject to change based on the cost of wood inflation. If you are satisfied with your transaction, please leave me feedback.
