After the birth of my daughter in 2014, and with a lifelong love of the natural world, I was inspired to create simple and beautiful toys for her out of natural materials. Family members and friends with little ones showed interest in what I was creating, and with their encouragement, my labour of love, Tree Fort Toys was born. Working out of my home in Victoria, BC, with my little product tester by my side, I design and create purposeful toys, games, and learning materials that promote cognitive development and foster a lifelong love of learning. I am filled with such joy knowing that like minded, eco-conscious families around the world are playing, exploring, learning, and having fun with toys and games that I have created!
Thank you so much for your orders and support!
Our Process and Materials:
All of our products are created using natural, untreated hardwood that has been sanded soft and smooth to the touch. All letters, numbers, and images are laser engraved into the wood pieces in our home studio in Victoria, BC. Our process of laser engraving creates a permanent, non toxic image in the wood without the use of paints, dyes, or decals that may chip, peel, or rub off over time. The wood pieces of all of our disc and dice games are left natural, while our block and bowling sets are finished with a Food Grade Mineral Oil and Pharmaceutical Grade Beeswax Balm.
Toy Safety is an important topic over here! We follow all Health Canada Toy Regulations and Safety Requirements under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act to ensure all of our products are compliant for the intended age. We encourage all of our customers to follow the age recommendations listed for each product. Some of our learning materials do contain small parts that may be a choking hazard and are not suitable for a child under 3.
