The story behind HOUTENDIERSHOP


Founded in 2014 HOUTENDIERSHOP is one of the few online stores where you have the possibility to choose from a complete collection of Ostheimer and Holztiger wooden animal figures. 

After a promising start we decided to expand our original product range (wooden toys and wooden animal figures) with stuffed animals of sigikid, Jellycat, Hansa and Hermann Teddy.The stuffed animals of these brands all have very soft Plush. Young and old will love it. 

We choose our products with the tought of being unique. Therefore it is important to us that our suppliers sell unique products you can not find on every corner of the street. All products we sell are 100% child-friendly, safe and do not contain dangerous substances. Did you know we have all our products in stock and that it is also possible to pick up your order?

We deliver our products to consumers ofcourse, but we also deliver to schools, childminders, nursery schools and other companies. Birthday presents, maternity gifts, or a small toy present, because of our varied product range everyone can find something on our website they like.

Corporate Social Responsibility

By selecting our suppliers, sustainability is a very important aspect to us. For this reason we are looking for companies that produce their brand products locally (as far as possible). A perfect example therefore is the brand Weizenkorn from Switzerland. The types of wood that are used are locally grown and the products are made by employees from sheltered employment. Unfortunately this is not possible for all brands, Tikiri, for example is produced in Sri Lanka. However the rubber toys they produce are 100% sustainable and come from the local plantation. 

What are we doing ourselves? Our packages will be re-used as far as possible. Secondly we are connected to foundation Wecycle to make sure our electrical devices and lighting are safe and will be recycled in a sustainable way. 

What we stand for 

We pay a lot of attention to the quality of the products we sell. We are looking to sell long lasting products. We always make sure that we send our products well packaged. However it may be possible that you are not satisfied. For us the satisfaction of our customers is most important. Are you not satisfied? Let us know and we will find a solution! If you are satisfied with our services we would appreciate it if you share your experiences by writing a review or share your experiences with us on social media.
