Happy Bungalow is a family business – Don, Liz, and the Kids.Happy Bungalow makes wood toys – but don’t think grandpa whittling on the back porch, rather – roaring dinosaurs, zooming fast cars, flittering fairies, and the most awesome robots you’ll find. We use only natural wood (no stains) and only make toys we want our kids to play with (and yes, that we have fun playing with as well). We’re an old-fashioned family business – our woodshop is part of our house and holds a number of tools, but no lasers. Every piece is cut by hand, sanded silky smooth, and finished with love. Well, linseed oil and beeswax actually – it turns out love doesn’t adhere to wood very well.
The adventures of Three Bold Babies. Circling the globe and riding dragons. We have three adventurous babies here at the Bungalow (or recent babies) who would LOVE to ride a dragon. Just not the jagged-skinned, fire-breathed, sharp-toothed variety. We mostly dream up purple dragons with yellow stars and blue stripes. And polka dots. There must always be polka dots on your dragon.
And we must not forget that, of course, it is the rare exception that babies are allowed to gallivant around the world. Most triplets spend their waking hours being photographed.
Here at the Bungalow we have loads of kids still learning the finer points of negotiation. For the most part they do well, except when they’re a little hungry or a bit tired. When they’re hungry and tired? Then the going can get rough. They don’t call it the magic word for nothing. So myself (Don) and Liz work tirelessly on this particular spell.
For Getting What You Want
When begging has failed you.
When crying is no good.
Your tantrums were for naught?
Then try saying these words,
with a flick of your wand
and a slight bend of the knees:
“Oh please oh please oh please.
May I have this please?”
“Vintage” movie poster: Robot Lords from Cosmic Space. Looks nice, and maybe passably real at a glance. Though we made this one up ourselves. The robots in the poster are renderings of our own wooden robot toys available for purchase in our online toy shop. Pick one up and make some fun of your own.
