From my workshop in the Forest of Bowland, I handcraft unique wooden toys for children to love and treasure across many generations.
Hello! I’m Selina, aka Dr Hellion. I founded Hellion Toys in 2017 after finishing my PhD in Design.
I handcraft my toys, blending traditional tools and methods with contemporary craft technologies to bring Hellion’s 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. You’ll notice that I add little details and unique elements; part of what makes your Hellion collection so special is that no two pieces are exactly alike.
I hope your purchase from Hellion Toys gives those you care about much joy and happy childhood memories.
Thank you so much for sharing my passion and being part of the Hellion story.
I take my role and responsibilities within the heritage craft of toymaking seriously. 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 collection is entirely plastic-free, solvent-free, VOCs-Free and BPA-free. My toys are vegan-friendly and gentle to the natural environment.
All my toys are independently lab safety tested and certified CE. I am a member of the Heritage Craft Association and the British Toymakers Guild who uphold the very highest standards of craftsmanship and design. In 2019 my work was shown at The Whitworth Gallery Manchester.
