Julie and Steve are parents to four awesome kids and the creators and hands behind Let Them Play Toys.
They love to watch the wonder in play and see how little minds learn and grow. They believe that open ended and natural resources are a beautiful way to inspire each child individually. Wooden toys are more than just toys, they nurture imaginative play, connection to nature and can be passed down from generation to generation.
Julie has been a childhood educator and a family day care owner for over 8 years. Both Julie and Steve used to regularly make toys and resources for the kids in the day care using the branches in their backyard.
They've seen first hand kid's love for creating small worlds and play experiences with simple objects of nature. Nature is a big inspiration for Julie and Steve and it plays a vital part in the brand philosophy.
Let Them Play Toys was born in 2019 when Julie found herself with some spare time as she was winding up her day care in preparation for the 4th child. What started as a small side business has since grown with love coming in from all over the world for the beautifully unique wooden toys.
Julie is the designer and creative mind behind each design. Steve is the man behind the saw, sourcing the branches and turning them into our products. The simple yet beautiful Log Hammer was their first creation to come off the work bench and this classic is still a favourite.
