Wooden toys for toddlers and kids
Wooden toys; who has not grown up with them? And which child has not had fun with them? Toys made of wood will always remain. They can take a beating and last for several generations. How nice it is to get the toys your little one played with out of the closet for your grandchildren later on! So save that wooden rainbow or block box for the next generation! That is also very good for the environment.
We have added many beautiful toy brands to our collection. Each brand has its own special qualities. There are brands that produce sustainably, handcraft everything locally or have an eye for design and make special designs.
The most important thing we almost forget is that the toys must challenge the children to play with it. Well, we can assure you that with our collection, they will! Below we will highlight the most fantastic wooden toy brands.
6x the best wooden toy brands
There are many wooden toy brands. Well known and unknown brands. Brands that stand for quality, but also brands that don't set much store by it. We deliberately select only the best brands where quality and safety are paramount. Furthermore, we find it important that the products look good, so we look at design and colouring. Below are a number of top brands from our collection:
PlanToys toys are sustainably produced from the sustainable material rubber tree wood. The rubber trees that are written off are given a second life in the form of beautiful toys. The residual material, the sawdust, is also used to make special toys. So there is no waste. Unique designs with their own style packed in a box of recycled paper.
Raduga Grez is a Russian toy brand. The whole process is in their own hands. The owner makes the designs and the products are handmade and painted in their own small factory in Russia. Trees from the immediate surroundings are used for the production.
Vilac originates from beautiful France. They have a rich history and have been producing original items for many years. Vilac likes to work with artists and illustrators who create the most extraordinary illustrations and designs. Very nice, because that way there is something new every time. Vilac also has some great vintage classics made of wood in its collection such as a vintage tennis set for the beach.
Kids Concept makes a lot of different wooden toys in which you can really see their Scandinavian roots. It is a young toy brand from Sweden. We really appreciate the humour and the unique details that different designs have. They also choose good trendy colours so that the products can also be used as decoration for the children's room.
Janod toys also come from France and are a bit classic. The brand has good wooden jigsaw puzzles and pull animals for toddlers. Also the classic wooden train can be found under this brand. One of the best known designs is the Janod rocket, a wooden stacking tower with magnets.
Little Dutch wooden toys are made in the Netherlands. For many people maybe one of the best known brands. They have a very extensive collection for baby, toddler and preschooler. Very popular are the wooden rainbows, this is a stacking bow with which children can stack and make all kinds of shapes. But also the wooden shape morphing board and the stacking tower are great fun!
Sustainable wooden toys
More and more brands are busy with the topic sustainable and responsible. This trend is also seen in many toy brands, the focus is more and more on sustainable wooden toys. No mass production, but toys that are made in a responsible way from honest materials.
Producing sustainable toys is a complicated process. Especially when a brand wants to prove this with a matching certificate, there is a lot involved. The FSC certificate is perhaps one of the best known certificates for responsible wood. FSC certification is there to prevent deforestation, wood with this certificate indicates that it comes from responsibly managed forests. Many toy brands choose FSC wood.

In general, wooden toys are more durable than plastic toys. Wood lasts longer, so that several generations can play with the toys.
