Blue Sky Toy Collection

About this project

I was inspired to create toys by my children. As they grow I continue to add new ones.
The first toy I ever made was because of my son’s dislike of plastic teethers. To stop him chewing my wooden spoons I had to make him his own wooden teether.

The collection is:
– Sustainably produced from local reclaimed Beech and sustainable Ash wood.
– Vegan. As natural as possible. Plant based paints and finishes are used.
– Safe. All the toys exceed European safety requirements and are CE marked.

Blue Sky Toy Collection
Photographer: Yeshen Venema
A collection of handmade toys made from recycled Oxfordshire Beech. Finished with plant based organic paints and UK grown hemp oil.
Crafty Wooden Cars
Photographer: Yeshen Venema
These wooden cars were inspired by my vehicle obsessed middle son. As a toddler all he would play with were cars. I designed these so we could also play with dough and paint by leaving tracks. Each car has a different patterned tread. To make them washable they're finished with a tough plant based varnish. The car body is local Ash and the wheels are reclaimed Beech Dimensions: 90 x 70 x 55 mm
'Gnosi' Wooden Rattle & Teether
Photographer: Yeshen Venema
Handmade in the traditional Shaker style from a single piece of recycled Beech wood. Gnosi wooden rattles are safe, make a lovely sound and work brilliantly as a teething aid. Personalise your rattle with a hand engraved name and/or birth date. Dimensions: 150 x 50 mm
