If you would like to understand the benefits of buying wooden toys for your children? Or just understand the amazing collection that is on the market today, then this is the article for you.
At KidzInc, we love wooden toys, because well they just have that natural feeling that no other product on the market has. What you may not be aware of is just how far Wooden toys have come since the days we were playing with them as little ones. Those were the days, building towers knocking them over :)
One of the first of our collection that we would like to share with you is the Dynamo Dominoes from Hape. As you can see from the image below, these are not your ordinary dominoes. They are colourful and come with a bridge, rails, and spinner. The collection is a full set of 100 dominoes. They make for hours of fun, creating different paths, only to watch them tumble down.
There is no right or wrong answer; there is only creativity and fun. Wonderful for developing your child's fine motor skills, and cause and effect.
We are going to stick with the Hape brand for a second because they do make some of the coolest wooden toys on the market. This one we love, and while it is on the pricier side if you are looking for something special to add to your toy collection, this is it.
It is Hape Quadrilla the Challenger. This is simply an amazing toy as you can see below, where your child can build structures that marbles run down. Enabling them to bring their creations to life. Included are high-velocity funnels, curved rails, seesaw, accelerators, levelers and 50 marbles.
Wonderful for developing your child logic, reasoning, and imagination. Not to mention giving them endless amounts of fun.
Anyone for Croquet? This beautifully made little set from Hape is wonderful for child development. Developing their gross motor skills, maths skills, colour recognition, and social skills.
Now one for not for the land lovers. Hape Stormy Seas, a brilliant awards winning wooden toys game for children 3+. Your little one will need to use all of their strategy skills to keep this one from tipping over in the ocean.
Whilst our children would love to have one of each toy we sell in the house, we do not. However, we do have the little sister to the Hape Vibrant Guitar. The benefits of this one are obvious. They get to learn music, practice fine motor skills, and, of course, do family concerts.
Hape e-Off Roader is the perfect little wooden toy for this adventure.
Our daughter loves her ukulele, and we sure your little one would enjoy either equally depending on age.
For the artist in the family, or just as a learning and fun activity board this wooden easel from Hape is very versatile. Obviously painting, drawing, or writing with chalk are all possible. The wooden easel has compartments for everything, as well as the magnetic whiteboard. The whiteboard is great to stick letters, words, or numbers on and supplements as a teaching aid. It is of course also just good fun.
Height adjustable as well. Some of the best artwork in our home all started from a wooden easel.
Perhaps you are a fan of the game of thrones and after something a little more old world? When it comes to wooden toys, almost anything is possible. This fabulous little lionheart castle from Le Toy Van, with a drawbridge, turrets, pull-up portcullis, winch, ladder, and flags is a special toy. In terms of wooden toys, this should bring your little one our fun.
Great for role play and building imagination.
A winner of the right start best toys award is the Le Toy Van Mikes Auto Garage. It is a very retro, 1950’s wooden garage. Including a working up and down lift, Helipad for those getaways, two spiral ramps. The garage is mounted on a big race track, and should offer hours of fun for child and parents alike.
Now if your son or daughter likes Bob the Builder, then they are going to love this one. With Plantoys Robot Wooden Tool Box, they will fix the house in no time, and then moving on to build the very own cubby house. I can see it now.
Brilliant for coordination, creative, fine motor skills as well as logic this wooden tool box will be a hit. Oh Yes, almost forgot, you can flip the whole set upside down and make a robot! What other wooden toys can you do that with?
The last of the wooden toys we would like to share with you today is the Tegu Future Magnetron Solar Station Magnetic Wooden Block Set. This is the future of wooden building sets. The 32 piece set has 14 unique shapes, a charging plug, magnetic wheels and a solar panel.

Tegu wooden blocks must honestly be the most beautiful wooden magnetic blocks in the market. To see them, first hand is like receiving a gift from Apple.
From the packaging to the product every millimetre has been made with the utmost care. Tegu is clearly a company that creates products with the baby, toddler, preschooler and older child in mind.
The finish is smooth, and the colours are magical, taking nothing away from the fact they are wooden blocks. Everything is very natural.
All the Tegu blocks are magnetic which means your little one will have hours of fun playing with them, and help them learn cause and effect as they go.
They have taken the concept of toy block to another level. Whether you are after wooden baby blocks or wooden blocks for your toddler, or even older child these will not disappoint.
The Tegu magnetic wooden blocks are painted with water based colours leaving that natural wooden block look. These magnetic blocks are a lovely to hold and for baby or toddlers blocks; they are just ideal for little hands.
Tegu have made these blocks as heirloom quality blocks. So you can tell by this statement they have been made to last, and they are actually fun to play with regardless of age. But just perfect as baby blocks.
They come in a range of different options so you can start out small and build from there.
There is the Tegu 24 piece, where your baby or toddler is starting to build some interesting structures.
The Tegu Travel Tote for those trips were you want to bring something fun along for your toddler or baby (blocks sold separately).
The Tegu Pocket Pouch which is perfect for keeping your child entertained when eating out.
Or the Tegu 42 piece if you want your little one to have them all.

The Tegu magnetic blocks are great for babies or toddlers to develop fine motor skills. They learn cause and effect, patience and are awarded for the achievement. They can look back and be proud of their magnetic wooden block structures. Even if it is only 2 blocks sticking together.
So you have no doubt how much we love this product; we bought it ourselves. We bought this one for our son, as he loved his sisters Magna Tiles, but he is too young for that toy at the moment. That one will have to be a hand me down.
If we knew when our daughter was born this was such a good product we would have bought her Tegu magnetic blocks. As they have two Tegu colour designs.
One is very natural with earthy colours, whilst the other has pink in the collections, which most would suggest suits females more?
These magnetic blocks are first class, and if you are looking for that beautiful present for your baby, toddler, preschooler and the older child you will be very happy.
