Care Instructions

Safety, Care and Cleaning Instructions:

First, a few things to know about your The Giftness Toys:

The Giftness Toys is committed to provide highest quality products which comply with and exceed all US standards and regulations.
Wood is naturally anti-microbial. Bacteria does not sustain life for long and does not duplicate on wood like it can on plastic or other surfaces.

Each toy is handcrafted, and passes through several hands before being packaged up. We are human, so every now and then we can miss something, but it is rare. If there is something we missed with your toy please email us so we can find a solution.
That all being said, we know you will want to wipe down your toys on occasion, it's no problem as long as its done in moderation. You never want to submerge your toys in water or allow them to be soaked for a long time though as that will ruin the grain and make the wood more likely to break. Hot water will dry your toys out faster than room temperature water. Just use a damp cloth (not super wet), and a mild dish soap, sparingly. Wipe dry immediately.

If the finish on your toy dulls over time you can simply apply a 50/50 mixture of beeswax and any food grade oil such as olive oil, coconut oil, or our favorite organic flax seed oil. No prep work needed, simply wipe on, let it soak in, then wipe any excess off and you are done!

Just a note: just because a toy has lost some of it's shine over the years doesn't make it unsafe. It is ok if you don't re-apply a finish, toys get better with age - just think about those ones you find in grandmas attic!
