Canadian Brands for Kids

July 17, 2023 Gift Guides, Our Partners, Our Story, Shop Local

One of our core values is to support Canadian business.  If we can source a product category from Canadian business we will do so.  It can be challenging to find kids items from Canadian companies and we often get asked to share what Canadian kids brands we carry so read on to find out. 

Books by Canadian Authors:

We have a number of books written by Canadian authors, some independently published and many about important Canadian figures.  We have a selection of both board books and paperbacks suitable for kids aged 0 - 8.

Arts & Crafts

We have these amazing soapstone (and now alabaster) carving kits from a Canadian Company called Studiostone Creative.  Kids starting from 6+ can make their own jewelry or animal carvings.  This kits are all made in Canada.

If your kids enjoy creating DIY kits this is for them!  We proudly carry Make Your Own Bath Bomb, Soap and Lip Balm kits from Kiss Naturals.  The age on these kits is 6+ but I've made them with my kids (aged 3 & 5) with parental supervision.  These kits are all made in Canada.

We also have one wooden cross stitch kit from Diana Watters Handmade.  This kit makes the perfect keychain or backpack charm and is great for learning to cross stich.
