The classic styling and heirloom quality of wooden toys makes them a popular choice for babies and kids toys.
Our collection of wooden toys includes wooden vehicles, educational wooden toys and the cutest wooden prams for taking dolly for a walk.
The benefits of wooden toys
Besides looking beautiful, wooden toys inspire open-ended play and inspire imagination as they create their own fun. Wooden toys are not battery operated and require interaction and exploration from your child often resulting in role play activities as your child brings their wooden toy truck or wooden car to life.
Watch your child develop life-long cognitive skills as they explore educational wooden toys, learning in true Montessori style.
The natural grain of wooden toys – even the textured finish of painted toys provide your child with a plethora of sensory experiences and our wooden stacking toys will help the youngest minds develop hand eye coordination and motor skills.
We source wooden baby toys and wooden toys for kids that are made from eco-friendly timbers and finished with non-toxic paints.
Are wooden toys better than plastic?
At Raspberry Lane Boutique, we have a strong respect for and appreciate of our planet. We choose to stock a beautiful collection of wooden toys as they have a much smaller footprint on the earth. Wooden toys one disposed of are biodegradable and we favour brands that source production timbers from renewable plantations. Wooden toys are a much better choice for both your child and the environment.
How to sanitise wooden toys
It is very natural for babies and children to put toys in their mouths – in fact, babies do this as a way of experiencing sensations as the feeling inside their mouths is far more developed than their hands.
Of course this means that keeping toys, including wooden toys needs to be a considered priority. Even though wooden toys are a natural product, they are also porous – it is best to avoid submerging wooden toys, simply wiping them with a wet cloth and mild detergent is an effective way to clean wooden toys – if sanitisation is required, diluted apple cider vinegar in water, wiped over each wooden toy surface and allowed to air dry, will ensure surfaces are germ free.
