Frequently Asked Questions
WOODEN TOYSWhy choose wooden toys?
All toys are tested to be free of dangerous substances, so that they are safe even if the child should chew on and ingest part of the toy or finish. Toys are tested for sharp points, breakability, and of course small parts/choking hazard.
For production our manufacturers are using only the highest quality wood – birch - from Lithuanian sustained forests supporting forestry that follows regulations and uses the certification of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council).
FSC facilitates the development of standards, ensures monitoring of certified operations and protects the FSC trademark so consumers can choose products that come from well managed forests. One of many FSC supporting forestry regulations is avoiding cutting down trees without planting.
Why birch? Birch is natural wood which is the most suitable for children’s wooden toys production, as it is hard, doesn’t have resin and it is naturally white! So our toys are NOT bleached or treated with any other synthetic chemicals. And just like other wooden toys it has much lower level of spreading bacteria than the plastic toys do.
Both our manufacturers for colouring are using safe, non-toxic, water based and organic dyes only: a water-borne acrylic paint and “Old Fashioned Milk Paint” – so it is completely safe for your child and the environment.
We try very hard to insure that all items available for purchase through the website are in stock and ready to deliver. That means that you won't be able to put it in your cart unless we have it in our stock. But mistakes can happen, and in the rare instance that a purchased item is out of stock, the customer will be contacted within 24 hours and given the opportunity to cancel the order and receive a refund, or to back-order the item and have it shipped to them once it is back in stock. We do not otherwise take back-orders of sold out items.
