Playful Wood (previously known as Wood For Kids) started their toy production in 2009 with owner and creator Pavel Chvatal. Even as a child, Pavel had a passion for working with wood and was blessed with a natural ability and skill set that is evident in all of his handmade creations.
Each toy is designed, created and tested by Pavel himself which is a very involved and intricate process. As with most artists and creators, he is a perfectionist which is why only a small portion of his ideas make it into final production.
The quality, precision and passion is showcased in each and every one of the toys from the Playful Wood range. To ensure the quality of the materials, Pavel only sources timber from local, FSC certified suppliers and only uses natural treatment methods and finishes.
Pavel works closely with people with special needs and also employs a small group that helps him with the colouring and painting of his beautiful and unique range of wooden puzzles.
All of the toys in the Playful Wood range are made using eco friendly, sustainable materials and non toxic paints and finishes which has been a core focus of the company since the beginning.
