This combo set of double sided tracing board with 2 mixed vowel reading spinners is a wonderful deal! 

The MDH Toys solid maple wooden tracing board offers your child an engaging learning experience. Lovingly created, the meticulously crafted single sided alphabet board has recessed letters for your child to trace. Tracing the small letters helps to nurture and develop your child's fine motor skills by use of small hand movements. Included is a wood stylus that helps to develop the pincer grasp, an integral part of printing and handwriting. Dexterity skills are also enhanced while tracing with the stylus. Watch in pride as your child's self confidence is further boosted while learning to print letters.

The MDH Toys mixed vowel CVC Reading Spinners offers your child an engaging hands on tactile learning experience. The reading spinners foster phonetic reading skills and help nurture the young reader's newfound skills as he/she learns to recognize and read basic CVC words. Your child will learn through play as he/she turns the blocks to reveal new letters and words. Watch in pride as your child's self confidence grows daily with broadened understanding and command of the English language. Some words are well known, and other words are rare, but each word is found in one or more dictionary.

One Tree Planted is a 501c3 nonprofit that plants
trees around the world. Their mission is to reforest the planet, one tree at a time.
Every $1 donated helps plant 1 tree. It's that simple. They also aim to raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.  They believe that businesses can be advocates for sustainability.

And so do we. As a business that relies on trees for its handcrafted goods, the least we can do is to ensure that we are using sustainable practices including making sure that the pine, aspen and maple we use are reforested for the next generations to enjoy. 

And as One Tree Planted so nicely puts it, 
By supporting tree-planting, businesses show that they are leaders in creating a healthier world in which humanity, nature, and wildlife can thrive. 

So why did we choose to go with a USA based tree planting charity instead of Canadian based? The answer is simple. This charity is able to plant 1 tree for $1 US dollar here in Canada. Canadian charities start at $3.99 per tree. Sure, it means that we cannot use anything we donate to the USA charity for tax break purposes - but that is not the point. We want to help replant what we use so that future generations can enjoy the trees too. With this charity along with your help, we can do more with less.

Most items are handcrafted for you when you order it. This time of year we do have some ready to stock items. Local pickup is available for last minute gifts.

Current creation times as of January 1, 2020:

most items: 3-7 business days depending upon items

custom name puzzles: 2-3 weeks
