Wake Up & Dream eco friendly toys

Wake Up & Dream

ECO FRIENDLY TOYS Edges are hand sanded so that corners are rounded to make them safe for little hands. Once our toys are smooth, we use non-toxic acrylic paints, but still trying to allow the natural, beautiful grain of the wood to show through. Each block is hand painted, or wood burnt by me in my home studio (so variances occur). Wood is completely natural and untreated. Each set is hand-crafted out of a variety of hardwoods, so there will be some irregularities among them. Organic and eco-friendly, each set is a mix of recycled oak, pine, meranti, teak, pink beech and balau. Wooden toys are very durable, so they can be enjoyed for a life time.
