Although wooden toys only represent a small fraction of the whole toy market, they have become a firm favourite in the independent toy sector, with many retailers specialising in nothing other than toys made from wood.
For many people, wooden toys create a wonderful sense of nostalgia. Parents and grandparents take great joy in introducing younger generations to the same kind of toys that they played with during their childhood. For others, they make ideal gifts, simply because of their innocent charm that is lacking from many of the high-tech, plastic toys that are popular today.
Important wooden toy suppliers include Bigjigs, Brio, Quadrilla and Plan Toys. Some shops just stock handmade or Fair Trade products that you simply cannot find on the High Street. The beauty of many of these retailers is that they often have a variety of earth-friendly policies in place to ensure that their toys come from sustainable sources such as bamboo or rubber wood.
