Our Story


Welcome to Milton Ashby Toys.

I founded Milton Ashby Toys after struggling to find ones that were stylish, beautiful and great quality – ones that I was proud to give as a gift.

There was only one logical choice of material: timber. It’s stylish, strong, safe and unlike mass produced plastic toys, each one is subtly unique. The surface finishes we use are all non-toxic and sourced from suppliers who share our vision. The packaging is also as stylish as the toys themselves.

All of our toys are proudly made in Melbourne, Australia by our small team of skilled craftspeople. To see a sample of how we make our toys, see the short video below.

We recently launched a new venture, Ley & Co. The first product on offer is a wireless phone charger carved from solid timber, but over time we will offer other products of our after-hours designing, tinkering and building.

I hope you love and appreciate our toys as much as we take pride in making them.
