NO 1 TIP TRUCK
16mm to 20mm thick timber, and I use stainless steel square drive screws with brads and glue for construction, giving a extremly strong durable product.
All wooden toy vehicles now come with a native timber bonnet/engine and other native New Zealand and Exotic Timber detail, and our native timber is donated to me by Great Dane Builders in West Auckland
Dimensions are Height 195 mm x Width 185 mm x Length 405 mm
All of our toys and wooden resources are finished with a New Zealand blended oil that is 100% food safe and now includes lavender and Tea Tree Oil which has antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties, providing a further layer of protection for children and early childhood education workers. This has been developed by myself and another New Zealand company and is specific only to Pioneer Wooden Toys.
We are active and passionate Upcycler's which is also known as creative reuse, this is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted products in our case what are deemed as offcuts by the big timber product manufacturer's, into new materials or products (TOYS!) of better quality or for better environmental value.
We aim to produce the finest top quality handmade wooden toys on the market, and with our toys being used everyday in over 300 preschools Kindergartens and Early childhood centers currently...we think we're on target :)
