Wooden Toys are the Best Choice

It's a funny thing about kids and toys, sometimes kids will enjoy older toys more than new-fangled ones.

Let's go back in time. Long before plastic was invented, toys (and many other things) were made entirely of wood. These days, most toys are made of plastic or metal, and while there's nothing wrong with that, toys constructed from these materials lack the simple beauty of those crafted in wood. 

It used to be that everything simpler and less complicated, including toys. You didn't need a plastic imitation of a movie character to be entertained.

Wooden toys are a choice for your kids. For one thing, they're durable. Let's face it, kids are hard on toys. Wooden toys can stand the test. And, because they're heavier they can help with hand-eye coordination.

It's true that plastic can be moulded into any shape and include a lot of detail, but that isn't always a good thing. By offering too much detail, it restricts the child's imagination. Wooden toys do the opposite; as kids have to supply the details themselves, like sounds and other elements, that helps stimulate their imaginations.  

Lastly, it's important to check that all toys, wooden ones included, have the proper safety marks and approvals.
