More about me ..........

I live in Newport, Shropshire and my chief product tester is my 2 year old son Isaac, he loves trying out all of the toys suitable for his age and also the ones that are not so suitable!

I love wooden toys, and started the business because I wanted to find different toys that were fun, unisex and aided development. The range caters for babies, toddlers and older children and I love to find something a little bit different. The online store enables you to browse by age and also by toy type so it's easy to find what you are looking for. 

A selection of the range can be found at Ironbridge Antiques, Arts and Craft Centre in the beautiful Ironbridge, specific items can be delivered on request.

Throughout the year I attend events, mainly in the West Midlands. An up to date list can be found in the events section of our website.

If you are looking for fun educational toys, or a special gift, I am positive that our range will provide both. We know many people keep special toys for years to come and our toys are made to last. We are happy to make recommendations, so if you are not sure what to chose why not contact us for advice!
