Wooden Toys for 18 months old

 

What are sustainable wooden toys

Just to clarify, you don’t have to buy only wooden toys if you want sustainable toys.  It also doesn’t mean all wooden toys are sustainable. Our wooden toy collection stocks mainly items made from sustainable sources. 

There are two types of wood materials can be considered as more sustainable than other wooden toys:

  1. FSC Certified Wood
  2. Responsibly sourced wood
  3. Reclaimed Wood

See our article that talks about FSC certified wooden toys.

And you can read more about what reclaimed wood means in our article here.  

Here’s our pick of the best sustainable wooden toys for 18 months old and over.

I ordered a wooden Noahs ark with animal shapes to fit in. Great value for money and so well made. My nephew loved it. The shop were amazing because I'd stupidly given them an incorrect postcode and telephone number. The lovely lady managed to work out I'd added an extra digit to my phone number and got it all sorted out. Will definitely be back again soon.
