Award-winning wooden pull-along pets!

Our 2 yr old grandson loved it. He was very anxious & excited to walk his own puppy in the park!

About Us

Michael and Pierrette originally created Spotty and his friends for their own children nearly thirty years ago, in a workshop at the end of their garden!

For years they sold the toys at markets across London. Today, the toys can be bought online but Applepie Toys remains a family-run toy design company, producing hand-finished articulating wooden ‘pets’ for creative, adventurous toddlers and pre-school explorers all over the world!

We manufacture all our toys from eco-friendly wood materials, and they’re built to survive years of indoor and outdoor fun!

Our Awards

Over the years Spotty and his friends have won a number of awards including Best Toy in the Petits Filous & Right Start Toy Awards, Best for Toddler Play from The Good Toy Guide and Spotty has been featured as one of CNN's top-10 wooden toys for Christmas.
