wooden baby toys

Wood has been used for thousands of years to craft toys for children. When the craftspeople round all edges and keep parts small enough for tiny hands to grasp, they’re an ideal choice for a baby’s first toys.

Wooden baby toys are important for a baby’s development. They give the baby something to practice using their hands with, and this is how children begin to develop manual dexterity.
