Since winning a few wooden toys around Christmas time, I'm a big fan! I love how well-made our items were and how they inspired - even required - creativity and imagination to get them to "work". Candy Law gives some more reasons why wooden toys are the way to go.
There was a time when wooden toys were all kids had to play with. Modern developments saw them replaced with inexpensive alternatives that made playtime a more affordable option, yet riddled with potential danger. Next time you pick up a toy that’s made overseas, consider investing in a safe, solid and far more durable wooden variety. You’ll be making a wise choice and your kids will thank you for it. Here’s why!
- Made to last
- Safer Alternatives
- Invite a different type of play
- More affordable in the long run
Our parents and grandparents may not have had the option to play with many toys but there is a very good chance they had at least one timeless wooden activity. Get back into the swing of looking for wooden toys. They can be passed down from generation to generation and will never be out of fashion. Wooden trains, alphabet blocks and shape sorters are all classical toys that are educational and fun.
Have you ever heard of a wooden toy being recalled for safety reasons?
