We love wooden toys!
Here’s just FIVE reasons why we do – and why your child will experience hours of enjoyment from high-quality wooden toys.
1. Wood is natural
Because wood is a natural material, each piece will have a unique character due to the different markings, grains and structure of the wood. Not only is wood beautiful to look at, but it feels great too. It is smooth and tactile, and also has a clean, fresh smell.
2. Wood is durable
Wood is a naturally durable material and does not easily break, so your wooden toys last a long time! Many wooden toys are even handed down the generations. Because wood is so tough, there is little risk of broken pieces or sharp edges – these toys can take a lot of handling!
3. Wood is safe and non-toxic
High-quality wooden toys are made from untreated timber and do not contain toxic adhesives or paints. You can be sure that any well made wooden toy that ends up in your child’s mouth is not contaminated by any chemicals that could be harmful to your child. For this reason, wood is ideal for teething rings, rattles and grasping toys for babies.
4. Wood adds a great aesthetic to your home
Wooden toys look great in your home, either on the shelf or on the floor! There is timeless appeal to objects made from wood, and each item has its own expression.
5. Wooden toys are great for imagination and learning
Cars, trucks, trains, animals – your child will play endlessly and use their imagination with quality wooden toys – and wooden blocks and puzzles allow your child to be creative and use the pieces in any way they want!
