Bumbu wooden toys are predominantly made from sustainable maple wood, hand-coloured with non-toxic paints, featuring attractive and simple shapes.
The Bumbu Toys workshop is located 1000m above sea level in Brasov county, Romania, an area based on traditions which they want to share to help preserve them.
Each sketch and design is approached with love and care. From the beginning until the toys completion, the individual character of each figure is always maintained.
They sketch the figures keeping in mind the abilities and skills they want to develop and how to stimulate the child’s desire for knowledge. Consulting with pedagogues and psychologists along the way enables them to produce a quality Bumbu educational toy.
Simplicity is their aim to help enhance and encourage a child’s imagination.
The wood is manually cut with professional equipment so that it meets the highest quality standards.
They allocate much of the production time of each toy to the polishing process. Why? Because it’s never too perfect and because Bumbu Toys are unique to the touch. The time spent for polishing is directly proportional to the quality of the toys and therefore they will allocate as much time to this process as is necessary.
They make absolutely no compromises when it comes to safety. All the paints used are 100% non-toxic internationally certified. Immersion in high quality organic oil, also retains the applied colour and protects the surface of the toy.
According to their creators, children need a positive image of the world around them and opportunities to recreate life situations through stories, which they can enter without fear.
They are looking for safety and meaning in life. By finding these emotions during play, children gain the courage and strength to face challenges and become more confident within themselves.
This is why Bumbu Toys were created and is one of the main reasons why they are so passionate about their work.
‘We love wooden toys because they are safe, natural, and durable, but also because they are nourishing to a young child’s senses. They feel good and, with their variety of natural colors and grains, are beautiful to behold! Not only will wooden toys provide many years of play for your child, but with proper care, they will also be enjoyed by your grandchildren and great-grandchildren.’ — Bumbu Toys
