Tell us about your business.

We are Hannah and Chris Blackburn. We are Seven Acre Toys. Born out of a love for wood, a love for design, and a love for family. Seven Acre Toys is the product of two makers who got together and made, first a marriage, then a family, and now a business. We couldn’t be happier to be doing what we do. We love making kids happy, as well as parents. As parents ourselves, we know how important it is to make sure the things they play with are safe. We like to say that in addition to being the lights of our lives, our kids are also a built in focus group!

What makes your business stand out?

We truly love what we do, and it shows! At Seven Acre Toys, we love making things that people feel excited about. Whether they like that our wooden toys don’t look like they were made 100 years ago because of the modern designs, or because they appreciate that we use only FSC certified hardwoods, we LOVE to stand out and show people why Seven Acre Toys is different. Seven Acre Toys products are baby-safe and chemical-free. We don’t use any paints, stains, or dyes to alter the wood in our toys. Gorgeous woods like American Black Walnut, Cherry, Hard Maple, and Beech don’t need any help to make them handsome. Woods like these are beautiful because they grow that way, and through responsible forestry they will continue to be an amazing, renewable resource of our American forests for decades to come. The only way we enhance the wood is with our own baby-safe mixture of food grade mineral oil, beeswax, and carnuba wax.
