Painted Turtle Wooden Toys seeks to provide parents with peace of mind when it comes to purchasing their children's wooden toys, as well as providing them with a piece that will stand the test of time. In an age where plastic toys and video games wear out and go out of date in the blink of an eye, our hope is that these durable and high quality toys hold a special place in the hearts of the children that play with them and are passed down from generation to generation. Each Painted Turtle Wooden Toys piece is handcrafted and finished by James. The wood we use is locally sourced from an environmentally responsible sawmill and our finish is certified organic, food-grade hempseed oil from a farm in Manitoba. We strive to keep all our materials as Canadian as possible and have a mandate of full disclosure. We fully stand behind our products and welcome your questions, concerns, and comments.
We choose to make our toys out of white ash, hard maple, walnut, and cherry, sourced from a local family-owned sawmill that has been responsibly managing their lumber since 1959. The hardwood's durability will ensure that the toys will be passed down from generation to generation. Below is the name of the company we acquire our wood from.
Cold pressed from certified organic hemp seed that is grown sustainably without the use of herbicides or pesticides. It also does not contain any Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), additives, or preservatives, is soy, gluten and nut free, and Kosher certified. Please note that the oil does not contain any psychoactive properties, as the seeds themselves do not contain these molecules.
Certified organic by OCP/ProCert-Canada Inc.
All our rattles comply with Health Canada’s Industry Standard for rattles, have undergone 3rd party testing to confirm USA CPSIA compliance, and (most importantly) have been tested and approved by our little guy.
