Wooden Story (4)
"Even our Grandfather, Grandfather Borowy* knew the forest gives you joy. Our family business is three-generation old and no one really remembers when exactly the first cordwoods were planned. But everybody remembers the year 1969, the year when the first wooden toys were crafted ...
Grandpa loved to create new things which brought happiness.
Times have changed. And with them, expectations. We had to forget about the toys and concentrate on making details for creating furniture. Beautiful details. One thing remained the same - wood. Wood has always been a part of our family. The talent of our Grandpa and his successors allowed us successfully to attain foreign markets. As time passed by, our longing grew... longing for wooden toys.
Yet again, times have changed and wooden toys were made again - happily welcomed by us and the kids.
We created Wooden Story - land of toys. We say that the toys came to us from the forest, they smell of wood and you can still hear in them the sound of the wind. Grandpa Borowy, as our surname is Borowy* was right in saying that "creating for children brings happiness to adults". We know this feeling very well. We created Wooden Story from love to nature, for the happiness of children".
Gosia and Wiesiek Borowy
- Borowy is a male woodland spirit in Slavic mythology who protects the wild and forests. Also known as Leshy.
About our toys:
Inspired by nature, created by us... We create in beautiful, natural surroundings - the Beskidy Mountains.
Our toys came to us from the forest... While playing with them, children become a significant part of this world in a very natural way. Ideas like recycling, environmental protection, the beauty of trees and colours will be with them throughout their entire life. Our toys improve senses, they are soft to the touch, they catch your eye with natural colours and they smell of wood. With wooden blocks, you can conjure the most amazing buildings. A walk with a wooden pram can turn into a beautiful story made up by your child.
Joy and happiness of kids - it's so easy and so important.
To make this joy and happiness complete, our toys are made of wood that comes from FSC® (FSC® C120107), certified suppliers. They are made of the best, carefully selected wood and they are not "poisoned" with toxic paints or varnish. We use all-natural eco-certified paints to colour them. That gives us the certainty, that your child will play with toys free of any harmful substances. Beeswax and botanical oils give them a soft polished finish. Wooden Story eco-friendly canvas bags and boxes are designed to be reused or easily recycled.
There is one more thing that makes our toys so special - they can be passed from generation to generation. We hope, that your grandchildren will discover their own Wooden Story in toys of your children.
If so, forests, water, air, and our whole planet will benefit from this.
