Lame Duck Day

Today is Lame Duck Day.  While the day doesn’t celebrate the animal, there is a real lame duck (distant bird relative of the snipe).  We dug through Great-Grandpa’s library and came up with this sketchbook page highlighting the Lame Duck in the wild.  It’s like total proof.

wood groundhog toy

Don’t Look Down Groundhog!

wood groundhog toyTry this tongue twister:  How much ground could a groundhog hog, if a groundhog could hog ground?  Not as catchy and recognizable as: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?  It still works though.  Call him a groundhog, a woodchuck, even a whistlepig or land-beaver – this toy is fun.  Pick up one today from our online toy store.

Super Squirrel, Legend of the Trees

superhero squirrel

In honor of Squirrel Appreciation Day we give you Super Squirrel, Legend of the Trees.

Think of the furry legends of the trees and marvel at their daring branch to branch leaps and skittering dashes to find buried treasure! Sure, it would be fun to invite the little fellas inside (perhaps for a cup of acorn tea), but it’s best to leave the wild animals in their natural habitat.  Though, with our wooden squirrel toys you can play right along without the little guys making a mess of your fruit bowl.

woodland animal toy porcupine

Wooden Procupine

Everyone knows what a porcupine looks like.  All needles and gnarly sharpness.  You know, like this:

Except (as I’m guessing is the case in real life), such a creature rendered in wood doesn’t make for such a smooth experience.  So in the interest of not making a 10 MOST DANGEROUS TOYS list, we smoothed out the spikes.  Which takes away the wooden porcupine most distinctive feature, but leaves the little guy open to more imaginative play.

And imaginative play is all right by us.  Call him a porcupine, a sloth, or a snarled up house-cat – just don’t call him spikey!  Cut from hickory wood, sanded extra-smooth, and finished with our own beeswax polish, you can find Happy Bungalow’s wooden porcupine toy in our online toy shop.

Wooden Toy Animal – Beaver

wooden animal toys - beaversOne of our favorite woodland animal toys.  Perhaps it’s because the beaver spends so much time working with wood, or perhaps it’s those cute teeth.  Either way, you can take home your own beaver toy from our online toy shop.

Vintage Russian Polar Bear Stamp

We’re on the hunt for cool old images, some toy related, others just plain fun related.  This vintage Russian stamp of a polar bear is just plain fun.  Maybe we’re suckers for stamps though.  Such great little artwork on such small canvases.Polar Bear on Russian StampWhile we don’t have a polar bear in our shop, we do have a wood grizzly bear for sale in our shop.
