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.
