We are a husband and wife duo who embarked on a journey of low waste and wanted to be able to create toys that had a low impact on the environment. We also wanted to go back to basics: when children have to earn their play outside of technology or battery-operated toys, imaginations flourish! It is like a breath of fresh air watching a child holding a wooden whale and making it dive in and out of waves. Doing a puzzle in the form of a rainbow that can be turned into tunnels or be stared at by a newborn babe to encourage eye development is good for everyone! Or it can simply be that special piece in a nursery.
All of our products are made using predominately maple and ash woods which are hard sustainable woods, making them sturdy and beautiful. Most importantly, they work with nature and not against it.
Our paints, tints and oils are all VOC free, plant and mineral-based and made in New Zealand.
Every purchase here at The Woodlands is truly appreciated. We hope you love your purchase and it is well Loved by the small Folk in your home.
