AUTHENTIC and EDUCATIONAL
Children and adults are intrigued by pioneer life. It was an adventure travelling across the country to live a life vastly different from life today. Family, community and working cooperatively were essential to survive the challenges many faced. What better way to teach children about pioneer life then building Log Cabin Toys.
Log Cabin Toys have been created to bring you a true to life replica of historic log buildings. Log cabins built by the pioneers were generally limited to the size of log that one man with a mule could bring in from the forest and two men could lift as they built up the walls. Notches would assemble the logs at the corners. The single saddle notch, where one log has a notch cut near the end of the log to fit the next log, as opposed to the double saddle notch, was very commonly used. Log Cabin Toys use the same building techniques as the pioneers. The ends of the logs are notched with a single saddle notch and the logs form an interlocking joint when another notched log is set over it at a right angle.
Log Cabin Toys provides children and adults of all ages a traditional authentic Log Cabin building experience.
We care about our children’s future and the future of our planet. We rely solely on local Western Hemlock and Western Red Cedar for our Log Cabin Toys and 100% of the production of Log Cabin Toys is done at our location in Fort Langley, British Columbia. Because of the size of the parts and our environmental priorities we are able to utilize almost all of the wood acquired so waste is virtually nonexistent. Although Log Cabin Toys are meant to last a lifetime, both our product and our packaging are biodegradable. We look forward to a time where all businesses regardless of size prioritize social and environmental responsibility in all parts of the supply chain in order to protect our collective future.
