Children of the Trees
Claire is the amazing creator behind Children of the Trees; a wife and mother to three, a daughter and two sons. They live in the beautiful Waiarapa on a farm in Waiarapa’s eastern hill country.
Claire's love for wooden toys and décor started after the birth of her first child. She was drawn to, not only the aesthetics of the wood but the nature in which it is timeless. She knew that her investment in wooden toys would mean that they would be passed down from generation to generation.
After having her last son Micah, Claire was inspired to be able to create her own beautiful and affordable wooden toys and décor for other children, just like her own.
Why we love them...
Just like Claire's children, Children of the Trees toys also start their life in the hills of one of New Zealand’s many pine forests. Harvested, milled and supplied from a local timber supplier, the magic beings when the wood reaches Claire's hands. Individually cut, sanded and painted, their timber evolves from design to its new life, as a toy in the hands of your child.
