Family owned Polish toy brand Wooden Story has a rich history spanning three generations. It started back in 1969 in the Beskidy Mountains where Grandpa Borowy (Borowy is male woodland spirit in Slavic mythology who protects the wild and forests) crafted toys from the woods in the forest. Fast forward nearly fifty years later and the family brand still make and create heirloom toys in the beautiful natural surroundings of the Beskidy Mountains. Inspired by nature each piece provides an incredible tactile experience for a child. The whole ethos of this toy company is to create playthings for children that are both natural and, in turn, inspired by nature. “We say that the toys came to us from the forest, they smell of wood and you can still hear in them the sound of wind,” so the company’s story goes.
Wooden Story toys and blocks although wood are incredibly soft to touch. They catch your eye with natural and rainbow colours and delight your senses with the smell of real wood. The blocks are carefully handcrafted and sanded perfectly smooth. They are made of the best, carefully selected wood and are not “poisoned” with toxic paints or varnish. Beeswax and botanical oils give them a soft polished finish and they use all natural eco-certified paints to colour them. That gives you the certainty that your child will play with toys free of any harmful substances. The toys are made of wood that comes from FSC® certified suppliers. Lastly, packaging is not made to be thrown away, Wooden Story eco-friendly canvas bags, creative cardboard boxes and chic wooden crates are designed to be reused or easily recycled.
These pieces are truly heirloom toys that can be loved and passed from generation to generation. We hope that your grandchildren will discover their own Wooden Story in the toys of your children. If so, the forest, water, air and our whole planet will benefit from their story.
