Is a toy shop offering a curated selection of high-quality toys made from sustainably-harvested wood and organic materials that foster children's imagination and support their well-rounded development.
Hello! we are Salvador and Karolinska and this is our small family run business.
Smart Smiles Toys is a lovely project encouraged by what typically generates great changes in the life of a human being, love. In our case, the love for our daughter Mia a micro-preemie who rushed to meet her parents and was born at 25 weeks. Unfortunately, Mia didn't know that rushing so much could lead to many health issues, including two brain bleeds that would damage her psychomotor development.
Today, Mia is a sweet little girl who lives and goes through the same developmental stages as any other full-term child, with many tantrums included! Our baby girl’s condition made us look for two things. Pedagogies that respect her own development pace and simple and not overly stimulating toys that allow her to give free rein to her imagination and support her brain’s development. That’s why Smart Smiles Toys was born to show you a whole fascinating world of natural, sustainable, and safe toys like the ones we offer our daughter.
As parents of a 2-year-old girl, we have always been eager to improve her developmental milestones and enhance her senses through different materials and toys which can convey natural sensations when she touches, smells and chews them. For this reason, we embrace unstructured and sustainable toys, made from natural materials through eco-friendly production, and finished with non-toxic water-based dyes. Not just because they are good for the environment, but most importantly, they are good for our children.
As human beings and as small entrepreneurs, we want to do our bit to reduce the environmental impact and try to leave a better world for our daughter. By paying attention to the materials from which the toys we offer our children are made, we can ensure them and future generations a better place to live tomorrow.
Hoping you enjoy to dive into this wonderful world of toys that is nothing more than our dream job.
Smart Smiles team.
