Last year, I told you all how much I was crushing on all the beautiful handmade wooden toys at Smiling Tree Toys - in fact, I ordered a few things for my daughter and nephew for Christmas, which were a big hit (check out the teethers, they're the best!)
Now you have a chance to experience the awesomeness (yes, that's a word) that is Smiling Tree Toys for free! One lucky reader will win an Old School Truck from their Etsy Shop.
This old-school truck is handcrafted from sustainably harvested black walnut hardwood. Kathleen and Justin hand-sand each piece silky smooth and finish it with their very own homegrown blend of organic camelina oil and beeswax.
Seriously, total awesomeness.
Can't you just see your little one playing on the floor with one these?
I love that Smiling Tree Toys is all organic and local all the way. Here's what they say about the beautiful finish on their toys:
Our organic homegrown wood finish is one of the most unique eco-aspects of our family business. The one-of-a-kind blend is made from camelina oil and beeswax, both of which are grown/harvested on our family's certified organic farmland. Camelina is a close relative of flaxseed. Not only is it a nutritious culinary oil high in Omega-3's, but it's also a great natural finish for wood! We blend it with a bit of pure beeswax (to add a nice sheen and a bit of waterproofing), and brush it on every one of our toys (with the exception of our maple teethers, which we leave unfinished). Learn more about our camelina oil/beeswax blend at SmilingTree's blog, and pay a visit to Omega Maiden Oils - our family business that grows, processes, and sells Omega Maiden organic camelina oil.
That's some serious awesomeness, right? Gotta love handmade toys, with a homemade finish and a great family business! So head on over to Smiling Tree Toys and check out all their beautiful toys.
