We all remember blocks as a child, but wood has also evolved.
It is now for all ages from birth all the way to adults with outdoor games.
Check out our wooden toys category for lots of ideas.
There are the blocks, music, wagons, bead mazes, puzzles, games, dolls houses, vehicles, farm and trains.
Wooden toys make great additions to play spaces because they offer so much learning potential and can be used in such a wide range of way. Wooden toys are timeless, they are safe and they are practical. But let’s look at why they make a great choice to fill your childs toy box.
WOODEN TOYS don't date.
They don’t need electronic updates. They won’t run out of batteries. They will last and last. If you treat your toys with respect (something we should be teaching our children) they are the perfect choice as they will last for generation upon generation.
WOODEN TOYS are incredibly sturdy.We recommend inspecting all toys regularly, but even after years of rigorous play, wooden toys will stand the test of time. Dropping a wooden toy shouldn’t do much damage to it, which means your investment will last longer.
WOODEN TOYS ARE PRACTICAL.
Even ifa wooden toy gets a small dent, even if it has a minor crack (that is still SAFE), it shouldn’t impact play! They are tough and sturdy, but also, durable even if there is minor wear and tear.
WOODEN TOYS ARE EDUCATIONAL but wooden toys won’t ‘work’ unless they are used. This means that learning becomes intentional. No passive learning as they sit in front of a screen, or simply push a button. To learn with a toy, your child will need to investigate, they will need to consider what they want to happen and work out HOW to get it to do what they want. A ramp racers cars won’t position themselves for example, your child will need to pick up the carriage, make sure it’s facing the correct way, place it in the track and then let it go. They will LEARN so much more by DOING than they will by just watching.
