Wooden You Wanna Play With Me?

I was playing with Pounce, the new Etsy browsing feature, and came across a new Etsy shop today with beautifully crafted wooden toys.

Countree toy shoppe is owned by Brian of Higgins Lake Michigan. He has been working with wood for 30 years and started making toys for his own children out of scraps from his building job. About 6 years ago, he began touring the North Eastern U.S. attending craft shows.

I picked a few toys from his shop to feature here.

This Logging Truck and Loading Dozer set are made from ash and come with little stackable logs. The dozer has a removeable operator too. What little boy wooden love to have this toy?

This adorable Dragonfly pull toy is made from Cherry, Maple, and Black Walnut wood. The wings are even hand silkscreened! Imagine my delight! The wings flop up and down as your little one pulls it along. This is too precious.
