Announcement   Welcome to a place of imaginative play. Natural, Eco-friendly, One-of-a-kind and Organic toys.
I love to create children's toys and more from wood by cutting, carving, building and wood burning. This art takes time so each item is made with hours of love.

Visit my blog for more info behind the creations at http://woodenmoose.blogspot.com
All creations are hand cut, sanded and burned. No chemicals are used. I work with raw wood, paint a few and protect them all with 100% organic coconut oil and sealed with homemade organic beeswax polish.

I work with walnut, ambrosia maple, maple, mahogany, cherry, poplar, purple heart, ash, pine, birch, oak, sweet gum, persimmon, lace wood and many other types of wood.

Also view the items that have sold to get more ideas of things you would like to purchase.

All items are UNIQUE and made especially for you. Also included with many items is a handmade bag (some do not come with a bag...only if necessary).

CUSTOM ORDERS are always WELCOME!

Please read my bio and check out the Shop Policies for more details.

Enjoy these wooden toys with your family and friends.

This was a replacement for a fish that broke. I do not think breaking is a regular issue, so I hesitated to mention it. However, the issue was handled fairly and promptly. No complaints from me - just kudos! The fishing set is still a major favorite with my grandchildren.

I love my adult version of connect four! It also doubles as a nice end table decoration. The wooden colors make it look like a purposeful sculpture and people will be surprised to know it's also a game. The seller was extremely responsive to inquiries. Thank you so much!

About

Started while pregnant to preserve the beauty of wood and imaginative play with my children.

While pregnant I wanted to make more wooden toys for my boys. So, I thought I would share some of these fun adventures with the world. My Bio covers so much of my story already. So here it is again.

I have been wood burning since 1990. My mother is an artist and she allowed my siblings and I to explore with many different textures such as pottery, painting, drawing, wood burning, sculpting, wood carving, sewing, etc. There was never a dull day in my daily adventures as a child. My siblings chose their own avenues to express their talents while I focused on wood burning and carving. After my son was born in 2008, we acquired many wooden toys for him and my zeal for wood came alive again. I love to capture the beauty of nature in my work. The contrast of colors has always been appealing to me. And it is also very beneficial for children.

Finding my niche has been a working process and a fun exploration into my heart of what I want for this shop. Even coming up with ideas in this market these days is a real challenge. What I sell in my shop now is TOTALLY different from what I had when I first started. It's a live and learn experience. And every holiday time is telling of what people enjoy about my work. People give honest and good advice/feedback which helps to focus my energy. I have enjoyed making (by cutting out these various woods mentioned below) a TON of new items. As long as my sons keep their super fun and vast imaginations...it keeps me on my toes.

I use a variety of woods to make these toys unique and special. My work is hand cut, sanded, burned, carved, conditioned and sealed. I prefer the artistic expression enabled by hand-work for my creations rather than the precision of laser cutting and burning which you can find anywhere. My work is not mass produced but made one of a kind.
I am willing to take suggestions or requests to make your wooden toys special for you and your family (some restrictions may apply).
It is my hope that you and your children will enjoy Wooden Moose Creations also.

    My husband and 3 boys keep me motivated to build for them and all future children. To embrace the beauty in Nature. To bring inside (on a tangible level) fun toys from outside. To use the imagination & watch your children come to life!

    My three boys test each item before it leaves the house. They inspire (along with nature) most of my work. We hope you enjoy them! ~Emmalee

It is my hope that you feel free to ask any questions and give suggestions to make me a better selling vendor.
