The Toad Abode

This elegant ceramic piece makes a creative accent to your garden. Toads will be thrilled to duck under this leaf and enjoy the dark and cool shade - they can even burrow holes in their bottomless home. Big bonus: kiss your bugs goodbye, because toads eat thousands of insects. Handmade in Canada.

Please note due to the handcrafted nature of this item, each piece is one-of-a-kind.

With a name like Amaranth, a mythical flower that is said to never fade, Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren's stoneware has a lot to live up to. Fortunately, it does, both in terms of beauty and durability. Using a firing process that can exceed 2000 degrees, Amaranth products are built to last, withstanding all elements and seasons, yet maintaining their signature charm. The Warren's make sure all their handmade stoneware is made in an environmentally friendly fashion and hope you take as much pleasure in their art as they do in exploring new ways to innovate current standards. collection

    Handmade by Jo-Ann and Gerald Warren, this ceramic sculpture is actually a functional piece of garden art! This shady leaf makes a cozy home for toads while they're eating their delicious dinners of pesky insects.Do you know a gardener who would love to let toads do some good in their garden?


    Make sure it works - I bought a toad house once and placed it in an area where toads frequent. At our summer house every Thursday there are toad

    I am not sure if I understand why a toad would want to live here.

    I love toads but fifty bucks to house them - no thanks

    Great idea but a little pricey

    It is a cute garden or outdoor accent, but it is a bit pricy. Since we really only have horned toads in the desert I wouldn't purchase it for myself, but do think it would make a nice gift for the right person in another part of the country.

    Too expensive.

    cute, but pricey. I have a potter friend who could make a toad house for me and customize it.

    Cute idea, cute item, but the price is way too high.

    Cute but too expensive. Fifty dollars for a toad house? Just get some inexpensive terra cotta planter pots, break off a portion, and voila - toad house. And if you have kids they can have a blast painting them.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! Kiss the bugs goodbye. YES!

    A bit expensive, but really cute (especially for frogs who need a home!)

    Just from the look of how whatever the brown thing is supposed to be on top of the leaf is fused to the leaf, I question the durability. Would this be able to survive a harsh winter or will I have to remove it from the garden when the temp starts to drop below freezing?

    WAY too pricy and there is no guarntee that it would even get used enough to warrant buying it.

    Cool but might be a little pricey. I just saw a toad in my yard last night so it's timely. I want to give toads a safe place!

    I'm always on the look out for thoughtful green gifts for friend who garden. I wouldn't give anything made from resin. This is a winner. Very charming and organic looking.

    $20 max.

    The price is too high for something to put in the garden where dogs and small children can easily break it!!

    Hi All! Here are a few answers to your questions. The toad house is made from high fired stoneware clay. By firing to over 2000 degrees the house is completely weatherproof. It will not fade or discolor in the sun or crack in the ice or snow. There is no need to bring it in for the winter. The toad house is made in two pieces so that there is ventilation, helping to keep the toads cool and hidden from predators.


    Very pricey

    This would only work in areas of the country where toads actually hang out. Dry, desert or drought prone areas wouldn't have a use for it other than an expensive lawn ornament.

    REALLY?!?? Fifty dollars for a toad house??? For that kind of money, the toads had better eat mosquitos like popcorn!

    Vote: Thumbs down!

    A little pricey for toads. I don't think they would be impressed.

    Vote: Thumbs down!

    My ONLY dislike is the pricepoint. LOVE it otherwise!

    Vote: Thumbs up!

    love it


    Wow, are you kidding me? $50.00? I don't think so. Make it smaller and into a piece of jewelry!
