We Create Beautiful Heirloom Quality Fair Trade Toys
We passionately believe that simple natural toys are vital for a child’s development. Natural toys inspire a child to imagine the countless possibilities for that toy; they can be anyone, go anywhere and do anything in the imaginary world. Instead of their thoughts jumping from one toy to the next, a simple toy allows the child to think, as apposed to the toy thinking for the child. The degree of creativity children bring to their play will directly affect the level of creativity they bring to their work and thinking later in life. We tend to agree with the wise words of Albert Einstein, when he said, “Play is the highest form of research.”
In a world of massed produced generic toys, our dolls and soft toys are a breath of fresh air with simple features that bring a touch of modern whimsy juxtaposed with a sense of nostalgia. We hope that our dolls and soft toys will bring wonder and enchantment in your child’s every day play, and become a perfect childhood friend, to love and to pass on, for many years to come.
