Etsy Featured Shop: Smiling Tree Toys

Etsy Featured Shop: Smiling Tree Toys

Several weeks ago, we received notice that Smiling Tree Toys had been chosen as an Etsy featured shop! We were both honored and humbled to be singled out from over half a million shops on Etsy. This feature was the perfect opportunity to share our family business with others who are enthused as we are about handmade products made in the USA.

In conjunction with this feature, we created a short video that shows just what it's like here at Smiling Tree Toys. Every item is handmade, and as you can tell it truly is a family business! Our kid ( Amana, 6, Micah, 3, and Thea, 17 months) are an active part of everyday life at our rural dairy-barn-turned-woodshop. Have a look for yourself:

Here are a few of our favorite photos from the feature:

“Our family defines Smiling Tree Toys, and Smiling Tree Toys defines our family.” Meet parents, partners and wood toymakers Kathleen and Justin Smith.:

We can never fully express our gratitude to Etsy and the role it's played in developing our business. Not only does Smiling Tree provide a decent, honest living for our family of five, but we're living our dream: Every day we wake up and get to do something we're truly passionate about - creating handmade, personalized keepsake toys and home decor for young and old - all the while spending priceless time with our kids. Thank you for supporting handmade in the USA and joining us on our journey!
