Vera&theNeva is a family-owned business from Russia that specialises in creating wooden toys for children and their parents and is aimed at promoting independent play. Their toys are designed for developing children’s emotional intellect as well as their critical thinking and creative skills. This beautiful brand was born in St.Petersburg and draws most of its inspiration from the art and architecture, northern nature and history. The rest is founded on observing their child and intuitive parenting. Their unique wooden toy designs present a wonderful opportunity to explore the world through unusual shapes, colours and textures. While creating each of their pieces, they are imagining it standing on the shelf in your home or being left on the floor after play. Simple, beautiful pieces that are visually pleasing and can be a wonderful decor piece in their room in between play. All materials are eco-friendly, such as wood harvested sustainably from the mountain forest and water-based paint that is approved for use in children’s toys by the EN71 (parts 3 and 9) safety standard.
