Archived// Handcrafted Wooden StoryScape (TownScape)

Let the adventure begin with this hand painted StoryScape, a unique decorative feature to inspire creative storytelling and imaginative play.

Please note that this is an archived item and no longer available for purchase.

Our StoryScapes are inspired by shadow puppetry and theatre backdrops. These charming miniature scenes are designed to prompt adventures of imagination and provide an evocative background for small world imaginative play.

This TownScape sets the scene for stories about home, family and friends as well as tales of forest and mountain adventures. What will you discover prowling amongst all those trees?

Materials and usage

Each piece is handcrafted and finished using eco-friendly, vegan-friendly, sustainable and locally sourced materials. The surface is varnished to provide a hardwearing and wipeable finish that is VOC, solvent and BPA-free.

Please note that this StoryScape is a decorative item for indoor use. It is not a toy and must not be used as such.

Dimensions and features

Overall size: 690 x 310 x 70mm
As a hand painted piece, colours may vary from the images shown.

While the dimensions are exact, each piece has its own distinctive character that sets it apart from a mass-manufactured item. Unique characteristics such as variations in wood grain are a hallmark of our handcrafted and small batch production processes. Colour batches may also vary across time. To achieve colour matching between multiple sets we recommend that these are purchased concomitantly.

Description

Handcrafted by Dr Hellion

All toys are designed and crafted by me, Dr Hellion. Join me on Instagram for a look behind the scenes at Hellion HQ in the Forest of Bowland where I bring our high quality, durable and eco-friendly collections to life. When I’m not cutting, engraving or sanding wood I’m busy hand-finishing each toy. I dye, paint and varnish my creations with great care to make sure they are ready to leave the workshop and begin their adventures in the world.

Uniquely yours

Part of what makes your Hellion collection so special is that no two toys are exactly alike – you are buying a one-off, handcrafted item. Unlike mass-manufactured toys, mine will have subtle variations from one piece to the next. The wood will have different grain, knots and natural markings. It will absorb paint, varnish and dyes differently as a result. You may also see brushstrokes, uneven lines and elements that add to the character of each piece.

Gentle to the environment

I aim to keep a low carbon footprint by sourcing materials locally from other independent businesses, typically within 20 miles of my workshop. I also avoid petroleum-derived paints, finishes and plastics of any kind. My collections are plastic-free, solvent-free, VOCs-free, BPA-free and vegan-friendly. I hope that you will cherish these toys and pass them down to be loved by the next generation. To protect each piece, a special eco finish is applied that will continue to harden naturally over several weeks.

Made in Britain

I take my role and responsibilities within the heritage craft of British toymaking seriously. I am a member of the Heritage Craft Association as well as the British Toymakers Guild who uphold the very highest standards of craftsmanship and design. My toys are independently lab safety tested and certified CE. Hellion Toys is a member of the trade organisation ACID (Anti Copying in Design) and our designs are supported by ACID through their IP Databank and Marketplace.
