Wild Woodland Toys

Why Wooden Toys….

There is something special and gentle about wooden toys, as opposed to the plastic counterparts that swamp the retail toy industry. Wooden toys are coming back into fashion as parents wistfully recall their own childhoods when choosing toys for their children, and as consumers in general are seeking a more natural alternative to the digital age. 

Many are eco friendly, sustainable and gentle on the environment. There is no comparison when you think of plastic toys full of questionable chemicals and offer very limited, if any, recycling choices. Generally plastic toys can be brittle, while anything digital or audio-visual always has a risk of malfunction and the price of batteries doesn’t help either!

Unfortunately wooden toys have received their share of bad publicity due to lead based paints and adhesion glues. Consumers need to be very cautious when purchasing the cheaper imitations of wooden toys, as they are often made from cheap, mass produced, MDF and Ply-woods and then finished off with chemical laden paints.
Quality, safer, wooden toys are manufactured by ethical & environmentally conscious companies. These companies are committed to producing the safest toys they possibly can, money doesn’t win over safety.
Ethical wooden toy manufacturers use wood only from sustainable sources, as well as also choosing to use safer, water, soy and vegetable based paints, adhesives and coatings. Viga Toys PolarB Shape Block Puzzle
As these wooden toys cost them substantially more to manufacture, their retails prices do tend to be higher.

Ethical wooden toy companies such as I’m Toy, Le Toy Van and Q Toys have nothing to hide and their websites and packaging, usually proudly feature various certifications and awards by safety and environmental organizations.
