TENDER LOVING TOYS
We believe that it’s ever more important to bring our children back to a natural playing environment. Tender Leaf Toys has been created by craftsmen and designers using their experience, knowledge and creativity to bring you a beautiful wooden toy range that has brought the energy, emotion and excitement of playing with wooden toys back in to the family.
All our great products have been made with the development of children’s skills and the replenishment of rubberwood forests at its heart. Our manufacturing process - cutting, painting and drying of the wood, is all undertaken at our factory all at the same location.
We have been awarded the ICTI seal of approval and strive to maintain ethically high standards throughout our organisation. All of our toy products meet the European, American, Australian and New Zealand standard safety of toys according to EN71, ASTM and AS/NZS ISO.
We have been manufacturing wooden toys for over 30 years now. We care deeply about the planet and it’s dwindling resources and so only use Indonesian legal rubberwood which is a by-product of the rubber industry. Rubberwood is an economic and eco-friendly wood and the Indonesian Government is committed to replanting the Rubberwood plantations as part of their growing economy. The production of latex becomes uneconomical once the trees have reached the grand age of about 25 years and traditionally were felled and burned, but under an Indonesian legal wood incentive, we take that timber, and turn it into beautiful toys. For every tree that is cut down another is planted in its place so ensuring a continuous supply.
