Wooden toys are actually better than plastic toys. Sadly, most mainstream toys are made with plastic. Not only do plastic toys break easily, but it’s broken edges could also harm little children. On the other hand, wooden toys are more durable and environmentally friendly.
Although wooden toys are pricier, nothing is more important that your child’s well-being and happiness. Here are 5 Instagram stores that sell handmade wooden toys and decors for babies:
