Handmade Non-Toxic Wooden Toys
We are passionate about handmade products! That is why we always get excited talking about our range of non-toxic wooden toys. These toys are made using techniques that have been passed down from one generation to the next, for over 200 years!
These eco-friendly toys are handcrafted using sustainably grown wood and coloured with natural non-toxic dyes. The dyes are derived from plant-based sources such as turmeric, indigo, acacia tree extract etc These are mixed with lac, a natural resin. The dyes are then applied using heat friction rather than being painted on. This makes these toys very durable and resistant to chipping. Read our blog article or have a look at this short video to find out more about this traditional art form.
These wooden toys are 100% natural, making them a much safer choice for kids to play with than the common plastic alternative. As all parents would know, there isn’t much that escapes the mouths of toddlers and young children! There are no nasty chemical dyes or plastic involved in these toys. You can rest assured that these toys make the best playmates for your little treasure.
These non-toxic wooden toys have bright colours and are tactile which encourages children to use their imagination and creativity. Our toys do this without the children being influenced by the kind of sounds commonly found in battery operated toys.
All of these toys comply with international toy safety standards – CE and ASTM.
Our aim is to bring to you high quality handmade wooden toys. Coloured using only organic natural dyes and sustainable wood sources. That is why we are proud to present the creations of artisans from the world famous “Land of Toys” – Channapatna in the south of India.
