Wood & Wonder Toy Review

As a rule, I much prefer to get the children wooden toys. I think they are generally a lot more durable and I think that generally they look nicer too. The colours can be more subtle and just generally nicer, if that makes sense? We have been trying out toys from Wood & Wonder – a site specifically for wooden toys for children. They have an exciting selection of funky wooden toys to inspire imagination and creative play for babies to preschoolers.

 I really like the ethos of the company and the idea that toys like these encourage creative and imaginative play, which is so important. They believe that it is not a case of pushing a button and watching a battery-operated toy do its own thing – children must manually push, pull, turn, lift, shake, rattle and roll. I completely agree!

It also goes without saying that wooden toys have far less impact on the environment than plastic ones. Wood & Wonder use sustainably sourced timber and natural materials contain less, if any, toxins, and thus are much safer for your child too.

This is the Colour & Shape Sorter toy and costs £10.95.


Anyway, you can see how Chloe got on with it here. It is suitable for children from 18 months and as she is basically 18 months, I can see that it is perfectly suited for her. The coordination and shape sorting is perfect for her development right now.

I really liked this wooden shape sorter toy and I would recommend it if you have young ones that it is suitable for. The Wood & Wonder website on a whole is really great with a big range of toys, not all just aimed at the youngest children but a range for toddlers and preschoolers too. They are really reasonably priced which is a bonus – I will definitely look into buying from Wood & Wonder in the future. The toys are good quality, educational and you can be pretty sure that they will stand the test of time.

    Wooden toys are always more durable than plastic toys and this looks like a great education piece as well as a fun toy for kids. It’s great that the colours are so vibrant and can keep the kids entertained for hours. #TriedandTested
