The History of «Skazki Dereva» («Tree tales») began in 90s as the family workshop of Michael Mashinets and Iva Derugina in Yaroslavl.

The wooden toys made by "Skazki Dereva" are loved by children and adults alike. The toys are trusted by parents and recommended by teachers and developmental psychologists.

We make our toys from wood, a material which is alive and natural, unlike synthetic plastic. The toys created by our workshop are painted by hand, which makes each one unique. All of our paints are non-toxic. We treat the creation of toys as an important matter, carefully and with love.

Our toys are three dimensional and painted on all sides. We use bright but not aggressive colors which are harmoniously combined with each other. All the corners are smooth, but you can still feel the texture of the wood. The details of the compositions are cut from a single piece of wood and fit tightly with each other.

And of course, the toys of the workshop "Skazki Dereva" are one of a kind because we design and produce them ourselves. In our workshop we are always working diligently to make new toys.

Our toys are designed with child development in mind. For example:

  • Putting together a puzzle encourages cognitive development and promotes fine motor skills;
  • While playing with the puzzle, the child can recite the corresponding fairy tale which develops speech;
  • The fantastic scenes depicted with our toys gives a wide scope for the imagination;
  • By putting together a puzzle and breaking it apart, the kids learn about the sequencing of events.
