Is the office open during the holidays?

During the holiday week (December 23rd to December 27th 2013) we will be working reduced hours.  We will be closed on Wed December 25th and Thursday Dec 26th.

Where are the toys made?

We have two small factories or workshops. One is in Vietnam, and last year we opened a second factory in Wisconsin, USA.

What kind of wood do you use for Tree Blocks®?

We use a variety of species from a variety of sources.  In the USA they include: Ash, Maple, Walnut, Locust; In Vietnam they include Swan (phonetic spelling), Acacia and Lychee.

Where does the wood come from?

More than 90% of our wood is reclaimed by-product from landscaping, fruit tree pruning and lumber mills.  Some branches come from trimming around power lines.  Some branches come from the cleaning the edge of a farmer’s field.

What is used to finish the wood?

Vietnam made toys are finished with Neem oil.  US made toys are sealed with baked in wax.  Both finishes are made in a food grade facility. That means they are safe to make cosmetics or even to eat.
