Everything (including the books) is made in the USA. We contract with a company in Vermont for some manufacturing, and much of it is done at a maker space here in Minnesota, all using domestic wood and non-toxic paints and inks.
Additionally, all of our packing material is recycled.
We aim to provide beautiful, high quality, durable products made and shipped as ethically and sustainably as possible. If you have ideas or questions about this, get in touch! firstname.lastname@example.org
We have playthings for all ages! Everything in the shop is great for 4–10 year olds. Older children and adults are especially likely to enjoy Tiling Turtles, Truchet Blocks, and Gallons of Pentagons. Younger children of course love the books, and coming soon are Shapes Puzzles for the smallest mathematicians.
Yes, but unfortunately can be a bit of an expensive proposition.
There are two things to bear in mind:
1. Actual shipping costs. These are calculated automatically on the website. If you’re making a large order (more than $200), email email@example.com and we’ll make sure to compute precise shipping prices.
2. Customs and import taxes. Our experience is that these are highly variable, and we cannot be responsible for paying them. We have occasional reports of fees being charged on shipping to Canada, and very regularly when shipping to the UK. We have not shipped frequently enough to other countries to be sure . These fees are collected by the governments in question prior to delivery, and range as high as 25% of the value of the goods.
