Give Back



I am an independent toy maker trying to help other families, so my felt capes are designed and sewn by me, but also through a partnership with a Woman-Owned Nonprofit Group to earn a reliable, fair living wage. With every caped animal, you help us give back to an artist that assists me in making each animal and we are humbly grateful. ❤


I do not own large machinery which is sometimes needed for consistency in safe products for kids, so I am happy to support makers & companies that make their own wooden items in smaller quantities and, believe in the same ethos as me. I choose sustainable new-growth wood that adheres to a sustainable environment. Some of my designed toys use reclaimed Rubber trees, which the farmers use for latex, and then upcycle the wood to make toys or furniture.


Please know that wood is an organic element and no two pieces are alike. There are imperfections in the wood, as is their nature. It is our nature to give you the best quality we can.


I follow ALL Safety Guidelines and require all paint used to be infant-safe to ensure my items meet or exceed industry standards.

Our products meet ASTM Child Safety Standards.

Our CPSC Registration Number: 040444-122021

If you have concerns or questions, I encourage you to contact me directly, either by email at or by calling me direct at +1-201-407-0909.


Our organic materials are the result of a highly considered, 360-degree understanding of the design process. I introduce an endearing collection of animal figures made from sustainable hardwood and organic soft 100% wool imported from New Zealand. I shop for real cotton-linen blends for our soft plush and do everything I can to make a quality toy.

I believe that machine-made helps the world run smoothly, but designed by hand makes it wonderful and alive.

zooModern was founded simply out of my love for nature. With every wooden animal purchased, zooModern delivers a donation to save an animal. We have so-far donated to the Jane Goodall Institute and are learning more about their “Roots & Shoots” program to help small communities.
After having my own children, my priorities completely shifted to making sure that all of their needs were met. With this came the importance of a better understanding that the animal world is vital to our own self-needs. Watching our kids grow brought back memories of my own stories.
As a child, I gathered small fish in the creek to catch, feed & release them. I moved an entire anthill into our garage attic to warm the colony from the cold winter; a little older and a little wiser, I’ve made it part of my company’s mission to give back to animal welfare organizations through animal adoption platforms.
 Make sure to come back and check on the progress!

Thank you for following my journey and supporting our business!
Glen & Linda
