We're all about baby and toddler toys that are built to last and won't end up in the giveaway pile or trash. Toys inherently have a short window of use, so we look to stock heirloom pieces you can pass along from sibling to sibling (and beyond!) Our wood toys are made from high quality, responsibly sourced wood, a material both parents and kids tend to prefer over plastic.
We've selected our top 9 wood toys that will encourage tots to use their imagination for hours of make-believe fun!
This cleverly designed wooden Carpenter's Workbench includes a wooden spanner, file and hammer and lots of nuts and bolts.
