The Little Door

If you’re looking for quality wooden toys that are made to last, look no further than Little Door. Founder, Chika was born and raised in Japan and found a love and passion for beautifully made toys that engage the child. As a mama living in Hong Kong, she decided to launch Little Door where she sources toys that are designed well, made of high quality and with safe materials. All the toys have an excellent play value which means little ones are encouraged to use their imagination when they play – something we can definitely get on board with! Little Door toys are also made from natural materials and are painted with safe, non-toxic paint which means you don’t need to worry when your little one puts the toy in his mouth.  Perfect for kiddos 7 and below, you’ll find everything from classic tea sets, musical toys and building blocks.
