Product Feature : Earthen Tree - Creative, Natural, Handcrafted

"Our aim is simple. Our natural wooden toys are not just that. They are works of art, made from eco friendly materials to create safe toys that have a great story to tell. We believe in keeping our costumers informed and knowledgeable, while making these toys fun and educational for children." - Earthen Tree Toys

Pull toys

Earthen Tree Toys are stunning, natural and exquisitely beautiful toys with each toy having a colorful story to tell. Although the company is based out of Kirkland, Washington, each toy is handmade by an artisan in a community in South India. These toy-making techniques are over two centuries old, and oftentimes artisans have learned and inherited their skills as they were passed down by previous generations of family toy-makers.

Baby Toys and Rattles
These wooden toys are made from sustainable Hale and Rubber wood trees. They are stained with natural and vegetable based dyes. It's hard to believe how such vibrant colors come out of nature, totally harmless and yet absolutely beautiful. I was quite surprised when i read this list of their natural and vegetable dyes sources :

Dark Blue/black: Extracts from the Indigo Plant
Yellow: Turmeric Powder
Orange: Kanchi KumKum and Turmeric
Red: Kanchi KumKum and Natural Alizarin
Dark Brown: Extracts from the Ratanjyoti Tree
Light Brown: Extracts from Katha

Cool Games
Materials used to create each toy are sustainable, lead-free, and non-toxic. A traditional lacquer technique, also safe and non-toxic, is applied to each toy. There is a vast range of toys distributed under different categories such as pull toys, baby toys and rattles, stacker, musical toys, educational toys and some cool games, even key chains!
