This week I would like to tell you a little bit more about another fabulous wooden toy brand - Small Foot.

Small Foot is a lovely wooden toy brand based in Germany. Set up by the brothers Holger and Ingo Legler in the 1980s and following the birth of Ingo's daughter in 2002 the company re-branded their wooden toys to Small Foot using her footprint as their logo! In 2012 they took a massive step towards sustainability by becoming completely climate-neutral with their European shipping through DHL Go Green and in 2017 Small Foot was awarded the FSC certification for responsible forestry (meaning that you can be confident that the wood used for these toys is sustainably sourced).


Small Foot wooden toys meet the highest safety standards and only use lacquers and paints that are exclusively water-based and solvent-free.




Some of my personal favourites from the Small Foot range include the super cute wooden animal ludo game and the toy that drew me to this brand in the first place, the wooden rainbow!


I hope you love this fab Small Foot range as much as I do!

This week I would like to tell you a little bit more about one of my favourite colourful wooden toy brands - Jumini

Jumini is another fabulous UK-based family business run by husband and wife power-team Julian and Nikki! The Jumini brand was launched back in 2016 with the aim of offering "a range of good quality, brightly coloured wooden toys which were beautifully finished and sensibly priced."


"Wooden toys give us such a sense of nostalgia and remind us of our own childhoods, whilst being the ideal sustainable choice for environmentally conscious families."


The Jumini range of toys starts from baby and runs through toddler, pre-school and beyond! Let's face it - you're never too old to love wooden toys! (I sure still love having a little play!!) They have lots of traditional toys such as the wonderful activity house

but also include some more unique items in their collection like the wonderful foldaway play sets that come in their own carry case.



I love the wooden toys from Jumini as they are fun and bright and colourful and their range includes firm favourites such as the pizza oven and tool belt.


I hope you love this fab Jumini range as much as I do!

This week I would like to tell you a little bit more about the lovely soft toys from Keel Toys.

Established in 1947, Keel Toys is a third generation, family run business, under the directorship of brothers, Richard, David, John and James Keel. Each plays an active role within the company on a daily basis in the capacity of Managing Director, Financial Director, Sales Director and Marketing Director respectively.


Keel Toys has a solely UK based design team who are key to their success: "We combine innovative design with cutting edge fabrics, technologies and finishing techniques to create the most modern and more importantly beautiful range of soft toys in the market place today! … and by the way we have a lot of fun doing it too!"




The thing I most love about Keel Toys range is that their teddies are fun and colourful with real personality and they are great value for money. Like the fabulous Mini Motsus which make great little pocket money collectible toys or the larger teddies such as the Keeleco Wild Cats or the ever-popular Dinomotsu!


Keel Toys are always striving to become a more eco-conscious brand and with that in mind they have developed their incredible new Keeleco range.


Keel eco is the NEW 100% recycled range from Keel Toys. These eco-friendly toys are manufactured and stuffed with 100% recycled polyester from plastic waste. Weighted with recycled glass beads, these floppy toys have been perfectly designed for hugging by a loving new friend. They've really considered everything with this range and even the Keel Toys tags are made from recycled cardboard and stitched on with cotton making the whole toy entirely plastic-free. The Keeleco range was awarded the prestigious Toy Hero award at the 2020 London Toy Fair and don't even get me started on how incredibly soft this new range is!


So there you have it from super cute dinosaur teddies to 100% recycled wild animal plush toys Keel Toys have a little something for everyone!


I hope you love the awesome Keel Toys range as much as I do!
