So, why are wooden toys preferable to plastic toys?

They're durable and timeless.

It's understandable to want to have a more durable material to withstand the constant brutality at the hands of your local five-year-old (this may feel like a bit of a hyperbole but I assure you, it might just not be). Wooden toys are just for that! Plastic toys on the other hand, even if made up of some extravagant durable material, has the probability of falling apart; especially the tech-savvy plastic toys being operated with batteries and through mechanisms tend to malfunction.


They're safe and simple to use.

Plastic toys tend to have little chips and edges in their material and we're all aware of the urge faced by children to shove everything into their curious mouths. Wooden toys on the other hand have fine edges owing to their natural material and production. They aren't easy to break and tend to be less of a hazard, keeping the kids safe from toxins, choking, or accidentally scraping their skin.

They're biodegradable and environment-friendly.

Wooden toys are more eco-friendly than plastic toys, thanks to being crafted from organic wood obtained through sustainable sources. They are renewable substances and the paint often used to coat them to make them more appealing is chemical free as well; unlike plastic toys which are both non-recyclable and will, at some point, end up clogging the landfill.

If you’re looking to make even a small positive change for the environment, wooden toys are the way to go!  


They encourage creative play and enhance life skills.

Thinking outside the box is one of the most appreciated features sought in the youth today. Whilst engaging in play with wooden toys, children are guided into making use of their imaginative juices and creative skills in order to make up scenes and form whole new worlds behind their eyes. Wooden toys also seek to improve spatial reasoning by enhancing creativity.

Aren't they more impressive than a readymade world being presented to one in the form of a plastic toy?

They're a cheap means to endless entertainment.

    As opposed to the initial face value, wooden toys end up being cheaper than plastic toys in the long run.

    Since wooden toys are durable, it's advisable to breathe a sigh of relief that you wouldn't have to splurge in regular intervals over the maintenance of the same. Plastic toys on the other hand face destruction easily and have to be replaced with another pricey toy (this happens more often than not).

    They're reusable and are free from toxins.

    Wooden toys are made of organic and sustainable wood such as Beech, Maple, Birch, and Rubberwood (making them reusable and recyclable), and do not contain potential toxins such as PVC, phthalates, or other similar chemicals which are used in plastic toys. The natural material of wooden toys maintains itself to be eco-friendly even when on a tight budget and can be loved commonly by children of all socioeconomic backgrounds.

    What is there not to love?


    They're educational and encourage group play and teamwork.

      Teamwork is one of the major life skills that are essential to every real-life interaction and working with others requires a solid base from childhood itself.

      Wooden toys make themselves known in the form of puzzles, building blocks, stacking toys, and other wide range of creative assortments. By engaging with the same, kids gain decision-making skills, and problem-solving skills, and understand situations better.
      Plastic toys often come with their own sounds and beeps and boops whereas Wooden toys work to improve a little one's sensory and social skills. They improve imaginative tendencies and provide educational value to the youngers.

      In Conclusion,

      Wooden toys might just be a tad bit cooler than you've been thinking till date.
      Wooden toys are more sustainable, friendlier to the environment, and better for the development of children in creative, physiological, psychological, cognitive, and social spectrums as opposed to the issues residing in high levels of toxic chemicals involved in manufacturing plastic toys, deeming them unsafe. Wooden toys aren't ridiculously expensive either so it's something people of all socioeconomic backgrounds can afford.

      Make a considerable change in your little one's future today and invest in trustworthy wooden toys to #chooseitright.
