Wooden Toys

Wooden Toys

There is something calm and lovely about a baby playing with wooden toys. I feel as though Alzette is learning not just about shapes and colors, but nature as well when she experiences the smoothness of the wood, the vibrant colors, and the sound of the pieces clacking together. Wooden toys are often of simple design, which is so important for a baby newly exploring the world. Many manufacturers of wooden toys maintain sustainable practices such as planting trees or using recycled materials. Alzette’s grandma bought her this shape sorter from Wonderworld toys, which makes products from rubber trees that no longer produce rubber. I love the teethers made by little sapling toys in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. They plant a tree for every toy bought. Our good friends Scott and Miranda of Lark Toys in Minnesota hand make their push toys and puzzles that are both beautiful and unique.
