Why Wooden Toys Make the Very Best Christmas Gifts

Although wooden toys have been around for decades, they aren’t going out of style anytime soon. With a natural aesthetic, fewer breakable parts, and no batteries required, wooden toys offer discerning parents (and grandparents) an eco-friendly option that they can take pride in buying – and their children will have a toy to treasure for years to come.

 

Wooden toys keep Christmas morning simple

Although many Christmas wish lists are topped with the latest and greatest gadgets and toys, most of these items are mass-produced and often poorly made from cheap plastic. Many parents spend Christmas morning scrambling to find batteries and reading complicated directions - only to have these toys end up in the bin by Easter. Well-constructed, wooden options such as the Ever Earth Activity Walker or the HipKids Musical Activity Table can be enjoyed from the moment the wrapping paper comes off, allowing families to recapture the magic and simplicity of Christmas once again.

 

Wooden toys allow the imagination to soar

While plastic toys with all the bells and whistles may capture a child’s attention when they first come out of the box, many of these toys have a short lifespan. As gimmicky or complicated items often leave little to the imagination, children tend to tire of them quickly. The simplicity of wooden toys allows children to create their own purpose for the toy each time they interact with it, encouraging their imaginations to create a whole world of storylines and characters. Playsets like this Wooden Toy Animal Trailer or this classic Wooden Toy Train Set are sure to lead to hours and hours of pretend play and create lasting memories along the way.

 

Wooden toys don’t have to be kept in the closet

With clean lines and simple designs, wooden toys are often favoured by parents who prefer not to have their home littered in brightly coloured plastic. In addition to being an earth-friendly and non-toxic choice for children, artfully crafted wooden toys can double as elegant accent pieces in any child’s bedroom. This beautifully designed wooden piano and gorgeous doll bed are timeless pieces that can be enjoyed now and be passed on for generations to come. Additionally, many wooden toys can be personalized with a child's name– making them a truly unique keepsake gift that parents will be proud to show off.

 

Wooden toys are a timeless gift giving tradition

As many adults can recall receiving a wooden dollhouse, trainset or puzzle themselves when they were a child, continuing this tradition creates a sense of nostalgia during the holidays. While there is nothing charming or magical about a sea of plastic covering your floor on Christmas morning, wooden toys conjure up sentimental feelings from years gone by and continue to create lasting memories for both children and their parents.
