Wooden Rattle by HabaThere are tons of cool baby toys out there that are colorful, clever, and…plastic. I have become increasingly concerned about the dangers associated with plastic baby toys as I read more and more about them in the media everyday. This is one reason I make it a point to buy wooden toys whenever possible.

Not only are they a healthier alternative to plastic toys (they do not contain dangerous levels of PVC which could be ingested by children), they last longer too. While plastic toys are frequently and easily destroyed, wooden toys are designed to withstand damage and last far longer than their plastic counterparts.

Without high-tech, plastic toys with all the imagineable bells and whistles, children will have the opportunity to enjoy a more value-driven type of imaginative play with traditional wooden toys. They will be able to engage in meaningful play, developing cognitive and problem-solving skills that will carry throughout the rest of their lives.

Through the Internet it has become easy for parents to choose from a variety of wooden toys such as kitchens and tool benches as well as puzzles, pedal cars, train sets, dollhouses, and even outdoor toys. Haba is one favorite among moms and dads. The picture above shows the Pipapo Wooden Baby Rattle by Haba. This colorful wooden rattle is perfect for small hands and will make a wonderful keepsake that will last for years. It is made of non-toxic painted beech wood parts and thread on an elastic band. Make your baby’s next toy a wooden toy.
