A Brief History

Roo has always had a love for wood and while farming was making garden furniture and at the request of a kindergarten teacher started making the toy wooden fences which has kept evolving as customer wishes are fulfilled.

On his retirement to Hawkes Bay he physically helped in the build of his new home and workshop and on completion began making wooden toys for his grandchildren and then in response to requests it expanded.

Sales initially were through word of mouth and then at Events and now our website.

So Roo can do what he loves doing best Prue manages the admin side and customer service.
