Good Wood, part II – Holzkram Update

November 14, 2007




OCTOBER 2008 UPDATE: Hold on a bit longer, everyone. We are waiting for official word from Holzkram as to which pieces and how many they will be sending this holiday. Those of you on the waiting list will be notified first via e-mail, but look for an update on the blog as well. Thank you for hanging in there with us!

(2007 post) For everyone who has called or written looking for an update on our Holzkram pieces, here is an official post just for you:

Many of you have noticed that the Little House is currently on backorder and that the Cottage, Farmhouse and Farmhouse with Stable are listed as “sold out”. In fact, there was a good supply of Cottages and Farmhouses in stock, but some savvy parents swooped in early and bought them up over a 2-week period. I do not anticipate further shipments of the Cottage, the Farmhouse or the Dollhouse (see above) we had hoped for until 2008. 

am expecting a shipment of Little Houses to arrive around the end of November. That said, the response to its feature in Mothering magazine’s “Best Toys of 2007 Guide” has been enormous, and, sadly, there will not be a large enough supply to accommodate everyone on the lengthy waiting list. I will be e-mailing all those who have contacted me at the same time so everyone has equal opportunity to purchase a piece for the holidays. 

As mentioned in a previous post, Holzkram is becoming increasingly popular but remains a small firm. While our friends there have been working hard to supply us with their wonderful pieces, priority is understandably given to retailers in Germany and Europe that have been with them from the beginning. The demand from our one little shop in the US has grown tremendously over the past month alone, and both Holzkram and I are sorry to have to turn any of you away. We greatly appreciate your interest and continued support.

As of this writing, the Castle Set is still available. There is a waiting list for any piece that is sold out. If you would like to be notified when your favorite toy is back in stock, please e-mail me at I will be happy to let you know when it returns to our virtual shelves. Those on the list will also be the first to hear about any surprise last-minute shipments. 

September 2008 update:  We have not forgotten about those of you on the waiting list! Holzkram has had several unexpected setbacks this year and is working to catch up on production. We will see some Little Houses for the 2008 holiday season, but it is unlikely that we will receive any of the larger pieces (farmhouses, dollhouse, cottage). We have some alternatives -including Ostheimer’s classic farmhouse already listed in the shop – on the way, so check back in late September or early October for updates. I will notify everyone on the list as soon as I have something definitive to report. Thanks for hanging in there!
