tuk + milo

tuk + milo (tuck and my-low) is an online kids concept shop that focuses on the benefits of play-based learning through the early years. Our signature handmade soft toys are now accompanied by open-ended play materials, developmentally appropriate activities + creative art supplies. Our collection is curated to encourage imaginary + creative play. We also make some hair accessories + 3 layer cotton face masks!

tuk + milo was founded in 2013 by me, Justine. I am an Early Childhood Educator, but have been out of the typical childcare setting since my daughter was born in late 2017. My passion for early learning + the benefits of play based learning have lead me to expanding my products + online shop. 

who are tuk + milo? Tuk was a blue-eyed Alaskan Husky who had the most gentle soul. He was around before I came into this world, but I was able to enjoy a few solid years with him before having to say goodbye. Milo was an adventurous orange cat who was always ready for a hug + a treat. Milo lived an adventurous life, including two six month long trips he took alone, but found his way back both times! He lived to be a very old cat + left this world peacefully in nature. 

 I acknowledge that the land on which tuk + milo operates is on unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
