There are many reasons wooden toys are better (not only for your child, but for the environment as well):
They’re long-lasting and more durable.
They cause less waste than plastic toys.
They’re biodegradable. This is something that is so important to us!
So we use the finest in grown hardwoods, primarily maple, cherry, and walnut.
We source FSC-certified (sustainably harvested) or locally grown woods whenever possible for all of our teethers, rattles, wood blocks, and all the rest of our toys.
They’re safer for your children.
The truth is that good quality, eco-friendly wooden toys don’t contain PVC, phthalates, or similar chemicals used in plastic toys. Now, I’m not saying all wooden toys are safe so you have to do your due diligence and be aware of low quality, chemically treated wood. Some wooden toys are made from plywood full of toxic glues and formaldehyde.
Plus, less can be more. We believe that fewer high-quality, long-lasting toys are better than countless cheap, plastic, breakable toys that never last. Let’s focus on memory making with our kids, on learning and laughing and growing alongside them rather than all. the. stuff. the big corporate brands want you to believe your kids need for a happy childhood.
