Feature of the Week: Woodpecker's TOYS

Hey, hey everyone!


Hope your Tuesday is going well and the first couple days of March have been treating you well...because so far March has only brought us snow. Welcome to Canadian Spring ;) At least it's not -20 degree Celsius. 

Speaking about Canada, I got a chance to speak with local Canadian Etsy shop owner Chloe who just a mere 3 years ago opened up her Etsy shop, along side her husband together they have created beautiful felt kids toys and mobiles! It's so wonderful when our customers come forward and share what they do with all that felt they purchase. You really never know what to expect and when I got a chance to briefly chat with one of Woodpecker's TOYS's creators I wouldn't have guessed that our felt was being used for such beautiful baby mobiles and creative felt crowns!

Woodpecker's TOYS have created products that focus on kids imaginations and at the same time understand that their products need to last a long time! With such creative and interactive toys I had to ask her where the two of them get all their creativity from and how does a design get chosen. She let us in on her secret! 

"Our goal is to provide children with fun quality toys that will last. And we are also committed to buy Canadian source product. But the first step in producing our toys is allowing ourselves to play! We play with a wide variety of patterns, colors and shapes to create toys that will have a special interest for each child. And to be honest the colors of your felt are so inspiring" - Chloe


And I think this is what sets this husband and wife duo apart, they allow themselves to be free and imaginative with their minds and the materials they use! Chloe and her husband also do custom orders so the possibilities are really endless! Check out their Etsy Shop here: Woodpecker's TOYS for fabulous handmade felt products.
