A wooden toy allows your child to develop their skills and personality. Is there anything better for a developing toddler than building up wooden blocks and see what can be used to knock them down again? Or developing hand and eye coordination with wooden jigsaws?  Motor skills & hand and eye coordination by bead threading? Or watching two four year olds mentally sail the seas with a wooden pirate ship? By far these wooden toys great for developing imagination and also they are a lot safer for your child.

 While plastic toys are mainly made abroad and created cheaply to be massed produced a wooden toy will created tougher and stronger. No being broken into shards within a week. No recalls within a month after dangerous chemicals in the colour.   A young child’s sensory development will also be increased by wooden toys. Smooth edges which are simple and smooth edged are great for chewing on relate to a young child’s understanding of the world.
