How to support Ukrainian businesses?
My story

Hi there! I am an ordinary teacher and mother on maternity leave, who decided to turn her hobby into a business. That’s how “bavka” was born.

bavka” is a Ukrainian brand of self-produced wooden toys and furniture. Each of our products is designed to develop creativity and ability to play independently and concentrated. These toys are created according to Maria Montessori’s system, especially popular in Europe. We take special care of the safety of toys: we use only quality raw materials of the best tree species; we cover toys with organic oils only, and furniture with a varnish of the Italian production. But “bavka” is not about toys, but about childhood. We understand that not only materials for games are important for a child’s development, but they are just tools. The environment and positive upbringing are most important. Therefore, we are constantly raising these issues in our blog.

Our products were popular in such cities of Ukraine as Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, Dnipro and Lviv, where there are many specialized Montessori kindergartens. Unfortunately, toys are not basic necessities now, but some parents are still trying to make their children happy and support us. We have had to temporarily stop production, but we continue to sell available goods from the warehouse.

When Ukraine wins, I plan to develop this business. There are no such high-quality toys in Europe, and we want to introduce the world to what our craftsmen are capable of.
