Ostheimer wooden toys
Ostheimer are one of very few toy makers in the world who still make toys in the traditional way. Each piece is individually sawn, sanded and hand painted - not one part of the production process is computerised which is extremely unusual today. Made from sustainable wood - maple, ash and alder - with water based non toxic paints and a walnut oil finish, each piece is eco-friendly, hand-crafted and unique. There is loads more I would like to tell you about this brand and how their toys are made - please just email for more info. They are not inexpensive, we know that, but each little animal truly is one of a kind, and the ethics and toy-making philosophy of this company are exemplary. Click here for a lovely little film showing how the toys are made - it's in German, but you can still enjoy watching the story!
