Everything is made in the USA. Lots of things are made at a maker space here in Minnesota, all using domestic wood and non-toxic paints and inks; the rest is manufactured for us by a company in Vermont.
Additionally, all of our packing material is recycled.
We aim to provide beautiful, high quality, durable products made and shipped as ethically and sustainably as possible. If you have ideas or questions about this, get in touch! firstname.lastname@example.org
We have playthings for all ages! Everything in the shop is great for 4–10 year olds. Older children and adults are especially likely to enjoy Tiling Turtles, Truchet Blocks, and Gallons of Pentagons. Younger children of course love the books, and coming soon are Shapes Puzzles for the smallest mathematicians.
We are happy to ship internationally. There are a few things to know about this:
Payment. We prefer payment by credit card via an electronic invoice. Email us at email@example.com to let us know what you’d like to order, and where you’d like it shipped. We’ll be in touch with a total that includes actual shipping costs.
Shipping methods. UPS is usually less expensive than the postal service for international shipping. We are happy to let you know the costs for each and have you choose before issuing a final invoice for payment.
Customs. Import tariffs are highly unpredictable. You may be charged nothing, and you may be charged as much as 20%. This is entirely up to customs in the receiving country, and we are not in control of this. If you are charged more than 20%, we are happy to refund that excess to your original form of payment—simply email a copy of any documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org
Delivery times. These are also highly variable. In our experience, shipping to Canada usually takes at least a week, and can require two weeks or more to Europe and Asia. We’ll update invoices with tracking information when we ship.
