"I remember those days...they grow up too fast." When you've got young children, you hear these words so often from parents, grandparents, even strangers. Why? Because IT'S TRUE. So make the most of those fleeting, formative first years. Give them love, affection, and undivided attention. Create spaces that encourage imagination and exploration. Offer timeless, well-made toys that inspire learning through play. And when "these days" have passed, you and your child will savor the memories and the special keepsakes attached to them. We're here to ensure those keepsakes are nothing but the best: personal, safe, and natural heirloom toys and decor pieces they'll treasure for years to come.
We're a fun-loving family business creating safe, natural, wooden toys in our family's red barn wood shop on the Minnesota prairie . Our signature alphabet and U.S. state wood teethers, keepsake baby blocks, wooden name puzzles, and other wood toys for toddlers and babies are unique gifts that encourage learning through play. Let us create the perfect heirloom gift for the child you love!
This is my go to baby gift! I’ve probably purchased about 5 now!
The blocks were beautiful and the perfect gift!
Excellent service and workmanship - a wonderful keepsake!
Gave this as a gift to my niece and she loves it! Such a fun and unique gift to give!
We presented this as a gift for my husbands godson-8mos-. His parents were warmed by this sweet and simple keepsake. A beautiful little piece.
Thank you for making such a high quality, safe toys for children.

Camera came quickly and the quality is just amazing! I can't wait to give to our friends for their first baby!
The baptism block was exactly what I expected! I cant wait to give it to my Grandson!
I purchased these blocks as a baby shower gift. She LOVED them! Huge hit with other attendees as well.
Great size for my 3 month old to grasp!
I opened the block and I was amazed. This is for my first Grandchild, I am so excited
to give this to her. Growing up, we played with blocks all the time. She'll see this and
smile. It will be a great tradition for me to give all my grand kids, if there are more :)
Wonderful personalized gift for my nieces baptism. Her parents loved it! Beautiful. Not able to upload a photo as it was a gift.
Two years ago I purchased one for my nephew. Now I am keeping the tradition and got one for my new baby niece. They absolutely love them! It's something that will truly be kept for years to come.
Great customer service and quick delivery. The final products were absolutely gorgeous and loved by my nephews, gifts that they will have forever. I have told several people about this amazing website for gifts
I did not expect to tear up when I opened this but I did! I gave it as a gift to my nephew and his mother LOVED it! I will be shopping here again. Also super fast shipping so thank you for that.
I have ordered this block for the last three baptisms we have been a part of. I love the uniqueness of this block. It will serve as a great reminder for each of the children as they grow that their faith journey started in such a special way!
The whole family admired this gift. So unique and great for a boy’s baptism. Won’t break either.
The baptism keepsake block is so adorable and sweet! It’s beautiful just as it is in the listing photos. Very great quality with clean cuts on the personalization. I would highly recommend this to anyone as a gift!!
This block was absolutely beautiful! Great gift for our grandsons special day!
As a graphic designer, this is a wonderful gift to the babies I know who are turning 1. I love that they can learn to spell their names at this age and when they're older they can use it as signage for their rooms.
I absolutely love these! I have ordered them for 3 different children’s baptisms and they are a huge hit!! Very nice, personalized keepsake to remember a very special day!
I purchased this board puzzle for my daughter before she was even born, now she is 2 and she loves it. We personalized it so now she can recognizes her name when she sees it. Definitely love it. It has the best quality too.
I can't say enough about how much I love Smiling Tree toys! The name puzzles have become my go-to 1st birthday gift for family and friends' children. The quality is great, customer service is wonderful, and the shipping time is very fast. I would recommend Smiling Tree to anyone looking for a unique, custom, high quality personalized gift for any special child. The puzzles are my favorite, but I have also bought the wooden letter teethers as well as Christmas ornaments. Everything is just beautiful and such high quality! 5 Stars all around!
We received a name puzzle as a gift for our son and just loved it! Fortunately, our dog loved it just as much. We ordered one replacement letter and then he ate a second one. Smiling tree kindly refunded the shipping so we didn’t have to pay for it twice and got us our part super fast.
We purchased this beautiful teething letter as a baby gift. The parents were ecstatic to receive this personalized gift and it arrived within a week of the baby’s birth after placing the order the day they were born. This is our go to baby gift for everyone when we find out the name. Photo is of our sons letter (already chewed on) as we don’t have a photo of the gifted letter.
This was the perfect gift to give. Production and shipping was so fast as well. Happy to support a great small biz!
If you are looking for a quality, unique, lovely gift...these keepsake blocks are perfect!!! I actually purchased one for myself when my daughter was born a few years ago and when my sister found out she was having a baby...I knew exactly what I was going to get her! These blocks are beautiful! They are the perfect gift! Everyone who has seen my daughters block and the block we sent to my sister LOVE them!
These blocks are my “go to” gift for babies and especially for baptisms. These are the highest quality and detail; parents love them. It’s the perfect memento!
I got this as a gift for my friend’s new baby girl. It’s absolutely perfect!
I just love this block! It made for the sweetest little gift for our newest little friend.
We were so excited to get this block for our daughter’s Dedication Ceremony and it’s beautiful! The quality and detail are amazing. It arrived quickly and the ordering process was so easy. Other parents have asked where we got it from because it was such a unique gift. So happy to have it for her special occasion.
I bought the love bug for my brand new grandson Axel for his very first Valentine’s Day.
Axel loves the car as do his Mom & Dad. Beautiful craftsmanship.
My son-in-law loved it so much he told me I had the wrong name on the car. Lol! Perhaps I should buy him one as well?
The kid's coat hooks turned out beautiful and my grandkids love having their own hooks (and we like not tripping over jackets).
I received this as a gift. It’s the cutest little toy and turned out beautifully with my daughters name and the wooden colors. It’s durable and perfect for a little one.
