Spotlight on Tender Leaf Toys
Once in a while we come across a company with some truly wonderful products and Tender Leaf Toys are one of our favourite brands. Cottage Toys first featured this amazing line back in 2019, but due to their popularity and success we are now investing in even more of their wonderful range of wooden Toys and Interiors products.

From CT: TENDER LEAF TOYS 
Tender leaf toys are here at cottage-toys.co.uk and Interiors. We have the full range of dolls houses, dolls house furniture, educational toys, market stall and foods. Tender Leaf toys are one of our favourite brands and we feel that their design is far superior than any other toy manufactures. The beautiful range is unique and totally design led. Contemporary designs which stand out from the rest of the toys on the market are a unique selling point. 
Tender Leaf toys are also one of the most earth friendly manufacturers that we know of. They have been manufacturing wooden toys for more than 30 years and only use Indonesian rubber wood which is an economic and eco friendly wood that the Indonesian government is committed to replanting. As the production of latex that the rubber tree is planted for decreases after 25 years, traditionally the trees were felled and burned. However under Indonesian law they take that timber and turn them into some of the best wooden toys on the market. For every tree that is cut down another is planted in its place.
We at Cottage Toys are proud of our eco-friendly credentials and are always striving to find ways to use more sustainably sourced materials in our supply chain!
