Toddlers are at a special age of exploration and are beginning to learn about simple shapes. Having shapes painted in all one colour, like shown, will help a child focus on the shapes rather than focusing on different colours.
• One MDH Toys Magenta Shape Sorter Board
- approx 9 inches by 6 inches
- approx 3/4 inch thickness back plate and letters
Meticulously crafted out of locally sourced wood, each shape is individually traced on the wood to ensure the shapes are the strongest they can be. After the tracing has been done, each shape is cut out by scroll saw then sanded twice, once by machine and then again by hand to ensure there are no sharp edges or corners. The puzzle base plate is made by handheld power router and sanded in the same method as the letters. We use traditional woodworking methods without computer aided machines for our shape puzzles which makes it a true handcrafted artisan made puzzle.

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.
