High quality and safety standards
Quality and safety are the most important part of the designs at Tender Leaf Toys. Each toy is made with concern for your child’s well being and education and are rigorously tested. Their toys are brightly painted with non-toxic water-based paint so you don’t have to worry when little hands go into little mouths.
Toys that promote learning through play

Whether its a sleek, life-like espresso machine (we’ll have a macchiato please), a charming tea set or a puzzle or clock, these toys stimulate children’s learning and imagination and no batteries are required.
Modern looking yet timeless
These toys are designed to last so your kids can learn and play and grow with the toys. They are beautifully designed, brightly coloured, well-crafted and timeless, they can be handed down for generations to come.
Ethically produced and eco-friendly
Not only are Tender Leaf Toys made from the renewable rubber tree but for every rubberwood tree that becomes a beautiful toy, another is replanted. The company has been awarded the ICTI seal of approval and strive to maintain ethically high standards throughout their organization.
If you want the very best for your child, and the planet, these toys deliver.
