We are Tamar and Marlon, parents of two amazing children who like to keep us on our toes and inspire us daily. Mama Tamar ~ plays the cello; daddy Marlon ~ the crafter, plays trombone; we met attending college, got married, and made a loving home.
Raised on a farm in the Uwharrie Mountains of rural North Carolina, Marlon would often steal a moment between chores to create wooden treasures. Embarking on his journey of fatherhood, he found a new purpose for his love of woodworking.
Tamar, our woman of many hats, hails from far across the great blue sea. Her love for Mother Nature’s gifts enthuses her eclectic ways. Tamar is our PR ⁄ Marketing person and packer extraordinaire.
Each day we thank our lucky stars for the gifts we have been given. Being able to transform rough stocks of lumber into satin-smooth bare wood toys for our children has been an exciting and fulfilling endeavor. Our hope is to be able to share the pleasure of imaginative play with you and to encourage creativity through eco-friendly, thoughtfully handcrafted wooden toys.
The photos shown on this site are those of our favorite toys. Each item is handmade with attention to detail and with safety in mind. Due to the nature of our materials, the toy you receive may vary slightly from the one seen here.
