For plant-based littles with a big imagination, you can’t go wrong with the delightful hand-painted wooden toys from Clever Coconuts.
A family-run business, this brand was born from the need one mom saw for toys that truly fit her vegan daughter’s lifestyle.

The result was a series of toys as full of love as they are cute.
Say no to plastic and yes to vegan representation with these dad-cut and mom-painted treasures your kids will love for years to come.
