There’s nothing like the original toys for children and for years there’s been a debate whether wooden toys are better than plastic toys. It is a fact that 99% of the toys offered for children are made of plastic materials. If you can remember, there were several reports about plastic toys with lead content, and small parts that can cause babies or toddlers to choke. You know babies love to put everything inside their mouth and this is where Country Toys Australia comes in, to give your child healthy and safe toys to play with. Wooden toys are usually big and there’s a lesser chance for you to worry about kids swallowing small parts and the best thing about this is, there’s almost no need to paint wood because it looks good already.

The history behind country toys
Barry Schefe, Creator of "Country Toys" is from Roma, Queensland. Four generations of his family lived in and around Roma, right in the heart of Aussie Grazing Country, since they settled there over 100 years ago.
Over 20 years ago, Barry's first son was born. The first of three big burly farm boys that weren't exactly gentle with anything. Especially their toys. Barry became increasingly fed up with spending good money on toys, only to have his boys break them. Barry was also frustrated that the only farm toys he could buy for his sons (who at that stage all wanted to be Graziers) were based on American or English Farms, not Australian Farms.
So, he decided to make his own. Barry began making wooden Cattle Yards, Stables and Road Trains for his boys, all based on real Aussie farm designs. His friends and family began putting orders in and soon the local saddlery began stocking his toys. “Country Toys” was born. The materials and construction of these toys have been 'tried and tested' by many kids over the years. Barry's eldest son Zaren, still has the same Cattle Yard that he played with in the middle of the kitchen when he was only a toddler. It’s still in one piece and only has a couple of “Love bumps” in the wood here and there after being passed onto his brothers. Barry and his family now reside on the Sunshine Coast where Barry runs several businesses, including Country Toys. As Country Toys has grown, he has enlisted help with the construction of the toys but still personally checks and finishes off every toy before it is posted out. Barry's Country Toys certainly make a great keepsake that your little ones can enjoy playing with now AND they will keep forever.
How lovely that these Country Toys will be passed on, through the generations in your family.
