We have fun, forest toys for every type of pup! For the entertainment seeker, the new Roll-Up Log is ideal – three forest critters are wrapped in the log and the pup has to try and get them out! The Long Legged Toy is unique not only because it has four long legs, but it has a hidden tennis ball in the body – making it almost two toys in one! Wool favorites, like the Fox and Squirrel Wool Toys, are great for pups that are into strength and squeakers.

Roll Up Log ToyWhen thinking about forest-like home products, we felt that the modern idea was the way to go. Our Anderson Modern Wood Bowls and Canisters are made from eco-friendly plantation grown and renewable Acacia wood, not to mention they are sleek and perfect for any home! Another modern, yet comfortable staple is the Snow Lynx Bed. With faux fur on one side and chenille on the Snow Lynx Bedother, your pup is bound to get easily attached to this forest-like bed!
