The word Palumba, or PA-lum-BA, is an etymological invention. Combining Latin bases we get the loose translation, wooden dove. While this does not necessarily explain who we are, it is a fitting description of the central purpose of our children’s items. The items we offer enable children to use their imagination and take flight, to soar like a dove – to find peace!
Palumba specializes in products made with high quality, natural materials. We offer imaginative, simple toys, musical instruments, art supplies, clothing and furniture, all dedicated to your inspired, natural home. We believe that imaginative, open-ended play with simple toys crafted from beautiful, natural materials offers children warmth and a sense of well-being when discovering their world. Our toys and furnishings are of heirloom quality, hand crafted with care and attention to detail. Most of our toys are made in the USA, Germany, Canada and Peru. Palumba is the sole distributor of Eyster Lyres.
Palumba is the retail division of Camden Rose Inc., the primary manufacturer of the items in our retail selection.
