Playful Wood (previously known as Wood For Kids) started their toy production in 2009 with owner and creator Pavel Chvatal. Long before then Pavel always had a passion for working with wood and was blessed with a natural ability and skill set that is evident in all of his handmade creations. Each toy is designed, created and tested by Pavel himself which is a very involved and intricate process. Only around 30% of his ideas make it into final production which is why it is so easy to see the high level of quality and craftsmanship in each and every one of the toys from the Playful Wood range.
Pavel also works closely with Helena Foltanova who is a famous toy designer from Heli Toys. Helena designs and creates all the soft toy additions to the Playful Wood stools and ride ons (eg. Ingrid). Pavel also works with people with disabilities and employs a group that helps him in the manufacturing process to produce his beautiful and unique range of wooden puzzles.
All of the toys in our Playful Wood range are made using eco friendly, sustainable materials and non toxic paints and finishes which has been a vital part of the production process for the company from the very beginning.
