About Tawny Owl Toys and Gifts

It is with deep sadness that we must tell you that Maureen passed away earlier this year. She had been poorly for a number of years but battled on and came into work to run Tawny Owl every day. Maureen loved her job, her shop and the many, many customers and friends that she made over the 37 years that she was at the helm of Tawny Owl Toys. Many of our customers are the first children who enjoyed Tawny Owl toys who are now returning to buy toys for their children!

We are now running the business, that’s David (Maureen’s partner for 28 years) and Kirsty (Maureen’s daughter) with help from Molly too (Kirsty’s daughter).
David has been working alongside Maureen since 2009 and continues to make the wooden toys in their workshop. Kirsty hand paints all of the wooden toys, including their popular range of personalised wooden stools and chairs, clocks, name plaques, pull along toys and much more.

Regretfully and after a lot of thinking and discussing, we have decided to close our traditional wooden toy shop at the Corris Craft Centre. Tawny Owl Toys is for sale and you can find out more by following this link.

In the meantime, it’s BUSINESS AS USUAL and we can’t wait to welcome you to our traditional wooden toy shop!
