At the Wooden Toy Shack we’re passionate about offering the best range of beautifully crafted wooden toys and furniture to all those creative kids and families across the UK. As a small (but perfectly formed) boutique retailer, we’re able to discover and handpick products from leading design and manufacturing companies around the globe. Our aim is to bring these timeless, educational and durable toys to our customers via a ‘best in class’ online shopping experience all backed up by reliable and expert customer support.
Creative toys for developing kids
To ensure your kids learn through creative play and have maximum fun doing so, it’s important the toy matches their stage of development. We cater for children up to the age of six, and our wide range enables you to select with confidence that the child will love your choice.
Your opinion really matters to us, so we listen carefully to our customers by monitoring opinions via our review system. If a toy consistently fails to meet expectations, we’ll remove the offending item from sale.
You need to be certain that the toy you purchase is 100% safe and that the supplier has adhered to strict safety guidelines. We ensure when sourcing products that each product is certified as meeting the European toy safety standards - EN71. We won’t bombard you with a lot of technical stuff, but rest assured that all our products are thoroughly tested and safe. We also ensure that our wooden toys are made using non-toxic paint and materials, so are harmless even if placed in little mouths.
Giving a little bit back
We believe that companies should where possible try to help those less fortunate, and are aware that many kids in the UK don’t have access to a reasonable range of educational and creative toys. We’ve made a commitment therefore to donate a selection of returned goods to a charity of our choice. We’ll be publishing more details shortly so please watch this space…
Naturally more ethical
We’d never claim that buying wooden toys is going to significantly prevent the onset of climate change. What’s clear is that making the choice over plastic is a positive one for the environment and future generations. Sustainably sourced timber helps keep our forests alive and the manufacturing process is far less toxic compared to synthetics. Oh yes, and by opting for wooden toys at least your house won’t resemble a plastic re-cycling or landfill site.
Let Toys be Toys
Noticed that we don’t categories our collections by gender? We believe that gender stereotypes are generally tired and potentially obstructive in letting children have full access to various types of play and learning. This is a hot debate but non-gender labeling is gaining acceptance across large parts of our industry - see www.lettoysbetoys.org.uk for more campaign info.
Our ‘No Quibble Promise’
We’re a UK company and conform to UK rules (and yes, that does mean paying taxes). In the unlikely event that your goods arrive damaged or not working quite as they should, we offer a no quibble returns policy. See our Returns Policy for more details.
