Wooden Toys and Gifts for all the Family


Nok On Wood was established in 2006 out of a desire to highlight the wonderful array of beautiful wooden toys that are mostly unavailable through high street stores and toy shops.

Throughout the development of the business we have been working closely with the ethos of child development and age appropriate toys and activities. 

What we have discovered is that encouraging active and creative play that is in rhythm with a child's development provides them with a good foundation to build their physical, social, emotional and intellectual intelligence. 

Although we recognise the draw towards digital toys, we have found that the longer they can be avoided the better start in life a child has.

In alignment with this is our belief that it is through the appreciation of beauty and wonder that we relate to the living world around us. 

When spending time in nature we appreciate the beauty and harmony that surrounds us and marvel at how mother nature creates this without any visible conscious effort. It usually brings us a sense of joy and well-being.

Re-creating this beauty and harmony in the home can bring the same sense of well-being into our daily life. What we then bring into being through our personal endevours (both recreational and in our work) is reflected out into the world around us. 

Our introduction of home gifts has grown out of this intention. Firstly with some of our own creations (KooKoo Crafts) and also by including some of the wooden crafts and gifts that come our way when we are sourcing products.

We hope you like what we have to offer.

We also have a small selection of toys available from Eliza-Kate Crafts on Nairn High Street where you will also find a beautiful range of locally made gifts. 




EVENTS IN AND AROUND THE HIGHLANDS

Nok On Wood was launched in 2006 as a mobile shop taking a range of toys to Highland Games and other events in and around the Highlands of Scotland. It is such a delightful way of keeping in touch with our customers and enjoying the stunning highland countryside that we still maintain this tradition today. If you live locally to us or are visiting the area do take a look at our EVENTS page for details of where you will find us.
