Timberchild Stacking Puzzle
Becoming a parent shifts makes you see the world in very unexpected ways. For Kisha Kinrade it was the shocking lack of eco-friendly and non-toxic tableware for children. After becoming a mother in BC Canada, she and her husband James quickly realized that most of the products on the market meant for use on babies and children contain dyes, chemicals, petroleum based products, preservatives, formaldehyde and a lot of other toxic crap! They also found that it was close to impossible to find 100% natural, Eco friendly plates that did not contain plastics, melamine, laminates or mineral oil. So, they turned to their own backyard for materials and what turned into a micro solution for their home, blossomed into a complete brand with a beautiful line of tableware and toys.
The Stacking Puzzle is made using walnut and maple, and is finished in hemp oil.
What we love about the stacking puzzle is your family can enjoy it as a playtime game, but it can also look wonderful simply resting on your shelves as decor.

Comfort Design Mats - Designer Non-Toxic and Easy-to-Clean Foam Play Mat
Comfort Design Mats create gorgeous shared spaces for play, work, and better living. These premium quality mats combine the best features of foam play mats with area rug designs to keep your home looking beautiful. They come in an array of colors and patterns that complement your home decor while giving your children a spacious, padded place to crawl, walk, and play. They are waterproof, hypoallergenic, BPA-free, and made with a thick, cushy-soft, non-toxic foam—definitely not like the typical puzzle mat material you might be thinking of.
More practical than tile mats and rugs, little ones and grownups (even pets) love how comfortable these one-piece designer mats are. They are easy to clean, won’t shed, and won’t accumulate stains or buildup. Unlike interlocking mats, they won’t let liquids seep through, or come apart during active play.

Mokulock Building Blocks
In beautiful Yamagata, Japan, a tech company subletting expensive equipment to process a variety of materials to build things like the personal computer, decided to take on a new task. The task was to deliver their “neighbor” mother nature to those who can hardly recognize in everyday life. The result were beautiful building blocks carved out from a solid piece of wood. No surface finishing oil, chemical, paint, or glue is used. The wood is harvested right in their backyard from trees that are carefully cut down in the winter for forest thinning to promote tree growth. The trees not used for local architecture are turned into these super fun blocks that are warm to the touch, with a comforting aroma, and a naturally beautiful color and texture.
