It appears a lot of toy companies are looking to make wooden toys instead of plastic to save the environment.
Natural wooden toys have been around for many centuries, be it a child’s rocking horse or the spinning top, just for examples.
Now that the environment is at the forefront of the news, being at least once a week, the natural wooden toys have clear advantages over plastic.
The trees that are felled for the natural wooden toys are replaced by sustainable forest and are managed to this end. Where as plastics made from oil based bi-products, have high impact in manufacture for the environment and the oil cannot be replaced.
Wooden toys can also be passed on from generation to generation. Whereas plastic can get mangled and break over time.
