Extra clear varnish applied to a painted tower
Clear varnish gives your learning tower extra protection from the usual mechanical damage. It also makes it easy to clean marks and spills therefore ensuring that your tower remains protected and look like new for longer.
We apply the colour or varnish of your choice and seal it with clear varnish. This is an add-on to any Tukataka tower (painted and varnished).
The only visual change to the tower will be its (slight) shine which will enhance the tower’s colour or wooden texture.
The product image is for illustration purposes only. The tower with an additional layer of varnish will not have a polka dot pattern, it will be evenly varnished.
The application of additional varnish is suitable for all Tukataka towers.

Shipping Questions and Answers
How much does shipping cost?
At Tukataka, you only pay for the product. After all, what you would pay for shipping cost could be used much more effectively. So, the next scoop of ice cream is on us!
How long does it take to make my tower?
Each tower is unique, and lovingly hand made. Naturally, hand-made products take longer to make, which is why we may take slightly longer to deliver a finished product.
The total delivery time of the tower consists of production time and transport time.
On average, to make a Tower (single or twin design) with a custom colour finish takes approximately 20 business days.
Adding an abacus or built-in chalkboard may extend the manufacturing process by an additional 5 days. This means, that your custom coloured learning tower with an abacus and chalkboard, will take 20+5=25 business days to create.
Adjusting the height of your Learning tower may extend the manufacturing process by an additional 3 days. Please note: Any height adjustments are classed as custom-made items and cannot be refunded without a reason. This does not affect your statutory legal rights.
If you wish to hand paint your child’s name to the Tower, add extra 2 business days. Meaning that the manufacturing process of your tower will take 20+2=22 business days. Adding an abacus and hand-painting your child’s name takes 20+2+5=27 business days.
All other products (such as magnets, protective grab handles, chef’s sets, etc.) are readily available in our stock, therefore they do not affect the length of the manufacturing process.
How long does it take for my tower to arrive?
All our Towers are made in the heart of Europe – in Bratislava, Slovakia.
The standard delivery time is up to 20 business days. However, due to extra measures and extended checks at the borders related to COVID-19, in some cases it may take up to 25 business days. Items are delivered by UK Mail and the shipping is free.
The delivery times stated are the maximum delivery times. Subject to your location, your order may arrive faster.
Why are the delivery times so long?
We make each Learning tower by hand. We pay attention to every detail making sure there are no sharp edges, no visible nails or joinery. Each Tukataka tower is unique, original, and truly bespoke. All this careful crafting takes time, which explains why our Learning towers can take a little longer to be delivered to you.
