Tim Schloss

Toy Craftsman

Connected, creative, hands-on


Tim Schloss is a toy craftsman and owner of Schloss Toys. He discovered his love of woodworking at a young age by working on pieces of timber found lying around on his farm. One day, his neighbours asked him to make some wooden swords in the style of Lord of the Rings. And so the quest began.


Tim is a talented woodworker and toy maker. He completed an apprenticeship in Cabinet Making (Fine Furniture) before taking over the Good Ol' Toys brand from Len and Lynden McCarthy. Tim travels the country bringing his "Imaginary Adventure Tools" to markets and festivals to the delight of adventurers young and old.
