When you start looking around at educational toys, you could be mistaken for believing that it’s all plastic-not-so fantastic these days, but there are lots of wooden toys without a battery in sight that stimulate your child and look great. Case in point, these ABC Wooden Blocks from eco store, The Green Apple.
They’re a nice chunky size at 1.75 inches square and are made from basswood which is highly renewable and sustainable. Brightly coloured with child-safe inks on handcrafted detail, the 27 blocks provide 4 complete alphabets, 3 sets of numbers, and 27 different animal pictures.
They definitely hit my ‘toys just like them used to make ’em’ button and at Â£19.50 they make a great, eco-friendly buy for your own child, or a really great gift. They’re definitely the type of toy that will last so you can pass them down to your various bambino’s.
Suitable from 2 years.
Â£19.50 from The Green Apple.
