Ever considered switching your child’s toy stash for wooden toys now? Compared to the usual plastic and synthetically-produced materials, wooden toys have the upper hand for a few good reasons. Wood is a natural material, and is particularly long-lasting and more durable than plastic toys. Almost unbreakable, wooden toys are great for babies and younger kids. Not to mention, it is more sustainable than any other material in the market.
