Thanks for visiting Geppetto's Apprentice!
At Geppetto's Apprentice we have a love for play and a great appreciation for the environment in which we are allowed to play.
That is why we choose to create high quality wooden toys and beautiful children's furniture made from sustainable, natural materials and with non toxic finishes.
All our products are hand made in Warburton Victoria near Melbourne from recycled and local responsibly harvested timber. We put a lot of effort in finding ecologically sound manufacturing processes that benefit us humans and Mother Nature. This means we will not be importing timber form Europe or South America, minimizing waste, using locally harvested timber from the Melbourne area, and avoid using toxic glues and paints to name but a few things. We are finding out that this is a tough game to play, but we are getting better at it every day. That is why we make high quality heirloom wooden toys, that are sturdy enough to last for generations.
We are aiming for making the best quality products at a reasonable price, and therefore giving children around Australia a chance to engage in hours of imaginary open-ended play that is so vitally important for them.
We hope you will enjoy what we make, so have a browse in our shop and find yourself something special that is way more than just a toy.
Please keep in mind that we are constantly producing, this means our stock will change a lot over time.
So make sure you come back!
