About us

We believe children could be raised without plastic toys and that simple and beautiful design of our wooden toys will encourage their imagination, creativity and influence aesthetic. Our toys are handmade in the heart of Europe by traditional methods, hand-painted in a small factory which has been making toys since 1950s. They are timeless, with modern twist made of natural untreated wood. Their sweet faces make happy additions to any playroom or children's bedroom. We update our collection of toys twice a year, bring a few new designs but still keep those firm favourites. We believe our toys have the magical combination of classic, modern and sweet to be liked by small kids and their parents equally.

OUR TOYS

All our toys are made of solid beech wood. They are made from sustainably sourced beech, in line with EU standards and CE marked.

Beech wood is very heavy, hard solid wood.  It withstands shocks and wears very well. It's a warm pale wood, elegant and soft. All our toys are left untreated without varnish or paint. The paint we use on drums and small parts is non toxic, safe for small children. Toys can be cleaned with a damp cloth but as any wood they don’t react well if they are exposed to water.

NO PLASTIC

We don't use any plastic in our packaging or wrapping. We try to minimise paper waste and use sustainable material whenever it’s possible. Our paper bags and cardboard boxes can be recycled or reused.
