I love being a mum! I am a mumma to two of the most amazing little humans. They are crazy, funny, adventurous, creative, affectionate and loud!! Mum life is heaven and I wouldn’t change a thing….. except all the plastic toys in our home.

When I was a child we played with beautiful, hand made toys. We didn’t have a playroom filled with them, but the toys we had were great quality. I am passionate about surrounding my children with toys that will aid their development, beautifully made, safe for our health and the health of our planet, long lasting (and I mean really tough!!) and aesthetically gorgeous. 

I want my children to have toys that last so well they can proudly give to their own children.

This hunt has led me to WOOD! Wooden toys encourage creativity and imagination. They have less chemicals than plastic and are recyclable! A quality wooden toy has longevity, can outlast a generation of tiny fingers and become a family heirloom.

I adore gift giving. Many people will groan at the thought. I love to select gifts that are beautiful, hand made, timeless and high quality. There is joy in selecting a gift that a child and mother will both love, and that will be different from all their other gifts. Pre Christmas and birthdays are my most favourite months of mum life, when I am busy selecting the gifts for my family and friends! THE BEST!!

This passion has led me to create From The Woods With Love. A carefully selected collection of beautiful and timeless wooden toys, and homewares for children. 

I invite your to join me on this journey to provide the best play and learning environment for our little ones.

Marching Bambino…. beating the drum for children’s eco friendly musical instruments

Marching Bambino are passionate creators of environmentally friendly wooden instruments.

Based in Brisbane, founder Alice is a strong believer in the power of music for children’s development, hence Marching Bambino was born.

Music is an important part of our family time in our home. Our children love to dance, make noise, play with instruments and sing. They have found joy in this from the time they could walk.

Music helps children refine their hand and eye coordination skills, as well as to build confidence.

Our favourites are the three piece drum kit, tambourine and maracas. The prefect size for small hands and subtly stylish with attractive timber frames.

5 Reasons Wooden Toys are the Best for your Mini People!

Why wooden toys

Welcome to From The Woods With Love – and our very first blog post!! I thought we should start with the facts! Why wooden toys! Here are the 5 reasons why we started this adventure!

Wooden, natural toys are healthier for our children and environment, allowing our little people to think more creatively during playtime.

– ECO_FRIENDLY – Protecting our earth for future generations is so important. Introducing children to wooden toys is a subtle way to start teaching them about the planet and its importance. They are durable and long lasting, lasting much longer than plastic toys. Wooden toys are, of course recyclable.

– MAKE PLAYTIME SAFE – There are resources available these days discussing the chemicals and ugly substances in plastic…. If I can reduce chemicals in the toys I choose for my children to play with, and the gifts I give – I will. This is of heightened importance in baby toys which are chewed and sucked for teething and exploration.

– DURABILITY – Why wooden toys? I would love for my children to have toys that they can hand down to their children and grand children. Wooden toys are tough! They are sturdy and long lasting.

– CREATIVE PLAY – Wooden toys encourage open ended, creative play. Wooden toys are often dismissed as being basic. But a basic toy can stimulate children’s creativity, which is so important for development. Consider wooden blocks – these can become a tower, house, zoo or castle. For those with toddlers we know how incredible their imaginations are!

– GENDER NEUTRAL – Often wooden toys are a gender neutral, blank canvas.
