Why do My Happy Helpers Products come sealed, varnished or painted as standard?
Superior quality products that will last the test of time is exactly what My Happy Helpers prides itself on. We want to see our products used over and over again and we want them to look good for many years to come.
Children and mess go hand in hand and raw, unfinished timber will not provide your family with any protection against spills, stains or children. Professionally sealed furniture, means your family can focus on having fun and not on the ramifications of spilt milk …. blueberry juice, cupcake mix or paint.For those that would like to match an existing colour scheme, we do offer a Raw Birch option that comes unsealed, ready to be painted as you please. If you do not intend to paint or seal yourself, it is our recommendation to purchase a pre sealed product.
What wood do you use and is it free from harmful chemicals?
At My Happy Helpers, your families health and safety is our priority. After many hours of research, My Happy Helpers came to the conclusion that despite the existence ofvoluntary safety standardsrelating to the chemical emissions from MDF, many suppliers (including some “Australian Made” suppliers) do not adhere to these standards.
For these reasons, My Happy Helpers only source timber from FSC (sustainably sourced) certified suppliers. This includes our New Zealand Pines, our Birch, Beech and Poplar Woods and also our limited range of eco friendly MDF products.
However, we don’t stop there, our timber and eco MDF products have also been independently tested and verified to ensure they meet the current Australian Safety Standards and we also view compliance certificates from every partner in our supply chain.
For more information on the hazards of MDF, check out our blogs.

Will my child fit under the Learning Tower Safety Bar?
Arching their backs to climb under the safety bar of a Learning Tower is a learned movement for any child. Generally speaking, the younger the child, the quicker they will grasp the concept but as we all know, children all do things in their own time, at their own pace. If you find your little one is resisting climbing in, please refrain from ‘lifting’ him or her into the tower.
Whilst this may solve your immediate problem, you’ve just taught your little one that he isn’t supposed to climb in on his own. Please rest assured most toddlers grasp the concept within 24hrs if left to their own (supervised) devices and there is more than enough room.(We’ve had 4yr old toddlers climbing into Learning Towers on the highest step level - anything to be a part of the action!!)
How do I care for my Learning Tower, Pikler Triangle or other Wooden Products?
Our products are designed for children and are therefore appropriately designed to be easily cleaned. If you’ve chosen to purchase a varnished or painted product, simply wipe your item down with a clean, damp cloth as required. No need for sanding, scrubbing or repainting.
If you’ve chosen a raw timber variation, please take extra care to ensure your child’s hands and feet are clean when using the product. Your product may also require a light sand every few months to maintain its visual appearance.

Signature on delivery
We understand that it can be frustrating when parcels are sent without authority to leave and we apologise for the inconvenience. Given the value of our products, we send all packages with a signature on delivery request. If you miss a delivery, your courier service will leave a calling card and you can organise a re-delivery directly with your courier service for no additional costs. Please note, once a parcel leaves our warehouse, the receiver has more visibility over the parcel movements than we do. Please check your tracking details online as your first point of call.
In busy and peak times, please plan ahead and order with plenty of time to spare. During peak times we increase our daily courier pick ups to a minimum of four times a day. Unfortunately, from that point on, the delivery time frame is very much out of our control.
If you select the Authority to Leave box at checkout, you agree to accept full responsibility for your parcel. If we have provided you with tracking details and you have chosen ATL at checkout, then unfortunately we are unable to launch investigations or claim via insurance if you have chosen this option. We strongly encourage you to select Signature on Delivery

What is a Pikler Triangle?
Pikler Triangle is another name for a Climbing frame. The advantage of a Pikler is that it offers sensory and motor develop opportunities not found with traditional ‘toys’ and the Pikler allows your child to reach new heights and milestones in their own time and in a safe environment.
