Introduction: A Summer Afternoon is the Etsy shop of Aaron and Erin, a husband and wife team who make natural wooden toys.
Aaron & Erin have been married for 3 years and have a one year old son. They love making wooden toys, games and teethers. Most of the wood they use would have otherwise been thrown out because it was oddly shaped or too small for a business to sell at full price.
A Summer Afternoon’s toys are classically designed and inspire creativity and imagination!
All of their products are non-toxic and eco-friendly. A Summer Afternoon’s wooden toys can be left unfinished or coated with food grade beeswax wood finish or raw linseed oil.
Selection: A Summer Afternoon carries a variety of wooden vehicles including a truck and trailer, flatbed truck, family car, train, scooter, sportster and baby’s first car. They also make wooden baby teethers, coloring utensil holders and wooden blocks. Aaron and Erin also offer woodburning personalization to give their wooden creation even more of an heirloom quality.
Review: We were blessed to review the four passenger family car from A Summer Afternoon.
Emahry (3 years old) and Jonathan (2 years old) have enjoyed this car from the moment it arrived. This handmade wooden car is extremely durable and beautifully crafted. The whismical shape makes it an easy classic in my book and also allows it to be easily driven by little hands. I love that there are no sharp edges or corners.
The removable people make this toy even more fun for little ones. Emahry and Jonathan can easily spend fifteen to twenty minutes simply removing the people and placing them back into their seats.
The wheels on the family car turn easily and allow the car to glide smoothly across the floor.
Emahry has told me on two separate occassions that we should get a car like this for her friend, so it definitely gets her recommendation!
Buy It: You can purchase your own handmade wooden four passenger family car from A Summer Afternoon for only $16 plus s&h.
Win It: A Summer Afternoon would like to send one of our readers their very own “Baby’s First Car” vehicle. This handmade wooden car would be a great addition to any child’s toy collection. This giveaway is open to the US and Canada.
