I hate to waste money. One of my pet hates is spending money on toys only to have them break 5 minutes later. This happens frequently with the cheaper, plastic toys which we pick up thinking we are getting a bargain!
I have always loved traditional wooden toys. They are good value as they are sturdy and can withstand years of play. They also encourage creative and imaginative play which is really important for development.
Wooden Toyshop is a great website offering a comprehensive range of wooden toys to appeal to children of all ages. The website is well laid out and easy to use with toys broken down into categories. You can also search for toys by gender, age or price. The prices are very reasonable for such good quality wooden toys. I especially loved the play food category which currently has 10% off. How cute is this cake stand with cakes??
Another of my favourites was the wooden toyboxes and chests. This Natural Toy Chest is fab and would look great in a lounge or playroom.
Wooden Toyshop stocks a range of brands including classics such as Brio which I remember from my childhood. Any child can have hours of fun in the world of wooden toys! My wooden toy wish list is growing longer and longer!
