meet your tree-hugging wood toymakers

our mission:

to create lifelong childhood memories for families and green the earth for all kids to come

this is where it all happens

Our red barn wood shop on the Minnesota prairie is basically our favorite place on earth. It's where our team of four (plus four kiddos) designs, makes, and ships all the toys.

"Kids don't need all the things. Let's give them meaningful, long-lasting toys that encourage creativity, create lifelong memories, and green the earth."

-Justin + Kathleen, founders
