About Us

Little Bud Kids is a small family-run business based in California whose mission is to bridge the gap between quality learning toys and accessibility. We founded Little Bud Kids after seeing the quandary many families (including ourselves) were in of wanting versatile, non-plastic educational toys for their children yet feeling impeded by the high costs of "premium" wooden toys.

Here at Little Bud Kids, we believe that even ordinary families should have access to toys that are timeless, grow with their age, and minimize our contribution to the landfill. Our children truly are like little buds, fragile, yet bursting forth with potential, strength, and will. They are magic in the making and so impressionable at their young age. Their environment needs to be as optimal as possible to nurture their innate, creative spark. 

That's why we've personally designed toys that are multi-faceted, versatile, and packed with learning and playing potential. Our wooden toys are created using ethically-sourced or repurposed wood. We only work with woodworkers who have received third-party international verification of meeting and exceeding ethical work standards & toy safety standards. All our products are regularly lab tested by TUV SUD, a German-based product certification firm, and are certified toy safe in the USA, UK, Canada, EU, Australia, New Zealand, & Japan.  

Lastly, all our toys are both kid and parent-tested and approved prior to production. We pride ourselves in bringing smiles not just for kids, but for the adults in their lives as well. We look forward to you joining us in our mission to transform the way we play and live.
