There are loads of cute and affordable wooden toys available for kids online. In the days gone by, wooden toys were handmade by wood carvers, but modern technology allows for the manufacture of quality wooden toys for kids without considerable time and expense.
I recently bought my grandson a very cute owl pull town from a toy site that specializes only in wooden toys. I think wooden pull toys make great gifts for the toddler crowd, and my son certainly seems to agree with my choice. I’ve watched him pull this beautiful owl pull toy for hours around our house!
However, you don’t have to stop at wooden push or pull toys. There are wooden doll houses, wooden train sets, wooden blocks and many more different wooden toys that will delight and entertain children for hours.
Best of all, with a wooden toy you are purchasing something that will likely be handed down for generations. The plastic toys you buy at places like ToysRUs are likely going to break and end in the landfill in under a year, but wood toys are an investment that should last for years to come!
I also think there is nothing more beautiful than a child’s room filled with quality handmade wooden toys. It is a beautiful site to look at and a beautiful place for your children to play. If you want to choose a toy that will will be cherished for years to come, then wood is definitely the way to go!
Wood toys are also better for the environment, especially if they are crafted from sustainable sources. And if they break and do end up in the landfill, they will eventually turn into compost and nurture the earth!
