Wooden toys for kids are classic, durable gifts that are good for the environment. They are also great for the babies and kiddos who can’t resist putting everything into their mouths (nom) as they are safe and non-toxic. Check out these fun eco toys for babies, toddlers, and boys and girls!
Non Plastic Toys
There is something about wooden toys that I just love.
They bring back feelings of nostalgia and memories of playing with the old toys in my grandparents’ basement.
We lived only 15 minutes from my grandparents so we visited them every week or two when I was growing up.
When we would go for a visit, I loved playing with the few old toys they kept that used to belong to my mom and aunt.
Some of the treasures included super old Barbie dolls with all their hair cut off and the tips of the fingers chewed off (I’m not sure if my mom or aunt was the culprit). The Barbies had custom clothing made by my grandmother.
I was in luv with a floppy doll named Cuddles that was supposed to (kinda sorta) look like a real baby. Except she had a teeny little mohawk because someone ran out of Barbie hair to cut. It just added to her charm.
And the wooden toys…
Classic wooden toys
There was one wooden toy made out of some kind of rich natural wood sculpted into a large bowl. It came with a metal ball and a wooden top to spin. The spinning top would run into the ball and knock it into one of the indents in the wood each which had a different score.
Another toy was again made out of wood and metal and had a metal ball. But substitute a board instead of a bowl and no wooden spinny top and BAM! Whole other game.
We had the newest and latest toys at home but for some reason were enthralled with these super simple wooden toys.
Now that I sound like I’m about two thousand years old, let’s see some modern wooden toys.
