Wondering if wooden toys are suitable for your baby - then read on to find out more. 

Looking for an alternative to plastic toys? Something that doesn’t contain chemicals and harmful substances such as BPA’s, phthalates and possibly even lead in the paint. 

Wooden toys are made from sustainably sourced wood and non-toxic paint. They are also more durable and break less often than their plastic counterparts - and also easier to repair if they do break (and don't usually leave nasty sharp corners like plastic toys). Wooden toys are also nice and chunky for baby to hold on to, push, pull and play with.  

A wooden toy appeals to baby’s sense of touch because it’s smooth, warm and soothing to the touch, unlike cold plastic toys. Below, we’ve listed a few examples of great first wooden toys for your baby, which are recommended for children over 10 months old. These wooden toys are great for developing hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills

As your child approaches their first birthday, we have a range of jigsaw puzzles, shape sorters, characters and block puzzles.

The block puzzles are made of 4 blocks, each side has been decorated with 1 part of a colourful image, which when rotated into the correct position, will complete the puzzle.

Immerse your child in the world of open-ended play with this collection of chunky colourful animal figures. They’ll be able to stack, sort and impersonate each of the wooden animals for hours of play. These figures are great for learning sorting and spatial awareness and starting to hone their story-telling skills

Jigsaw puzzle

Add a chunky four piece jigsaw puzzle for learning through play. This puzzle is the perfect size for little hands to slot the puzzle pieces together. A fantastic addition to any children’s toy collection. These puzzles are excellent for young children to start learning spatial awareness.

Wondering how to care for your wooden toys? It’s really simple, just wipe clean with a damp cloth. Wipe away any excess moisture and leave to air dry!

Wooden toys lend themselves to open-ended, imaginative play far more than plastic toys. They’re generally simple in design which opens up a world of possibilities for your little ones. Imaginative play in early childhood encourages problem solving, promotes language development and enhances fine motor skills. We hope we don’t have to mention that wooden toys are aesthetically pleasing too, with the natural grains and bright colours. 

Kids wooden toys

Perhaps the most important reason for choosing a wooden toy is the fact that they’re made from eco-friendly and sustainable material. This means that your child's toys will be better for the environment, since they are recyclable and biodegradable. These wooden toys are made to last and can be passed down through generations.

We have a lovely range of wooden toys to suit your baby or child, from an ideal first birthday gift to skittles, giant puzzles, Noah’s Arc with beautiful characters to spinning tops and skipping ropes. Take a look at our fantastic range today
