|Toys - Wooden Blocks|
There are now many good-quality wooden toys to available in the shops, ranging from blocks, jigsaws, train sets to bigger items such as rocking horses and baby walkers. Wooden toys are free from the dangerous chemicals found lurking in plastic toys, and if you choose organic wood, you will be avoiding any contamination from pesticides and chemicals. When buying wooden toys ensure that they are made with solid wood, and not pressed wood as that tends to contain formaldehyde, another nasty chemical. When you purchase your organic wooden toys, ensure that they are made from organically farmed trees and from sustainable resources. In addition, if they are painted or decorated, the paint and any varnishes should be non-toxic.
