Having wooden toys around the house was a big part of our family’s childhood. We were lucky enough to have some of our wooden toys made by our grandfather. These were favourite toys for many of us and we still have these wooden toys today as they continue to be passed through the family. This demonstrates what we believe is the real value of wooden toys.
As our personal experience demonstrates, wooden toys are more durable, biodegradable and many are made with sustainable wood. Quality, eco-friendly wooden toys don't contain PVC, phthalates, or similar chemicals used in plastic toys. All of which is very important to us.
But more than that, they also have a wonderful educational quality that we favour. Simple wooden toys teach creativity and problem-solving. While wooden toys are generally quieter, supporting a calmer playing environment free of the lights and noise of many plastic toys. In saying that technological advancement has been able to combine music and wood together. You will find this in the Baby Einstein & Hape music range which is a very popular range with many of The Toy Wagon shoppers. We believe there is a wooden toy option for every preference.
We really like that wooden toys provide the opportunity for children to learn. You will find this with the range of wooden toys we have to offer. We strive to offer the best toys to engage a child's senses, spark their imaginations, and encourage them to interact with others.
There are many benefits to wooden toys for kids of all ages, from a wooden rattle for a baby to a wooden puzzle or train set for a pre-schooler. These benefits are such things as hand eye coordination, imaginative play, sensory play, durability and have can have STEAM base learning. Also, as a parent knowing that they are much safer being natural material, not containing the toxins and synthetic materials or plastics you can find in other toys.
