How to choose wooden toys?
1. See if there is a peculiar smell
The usual wooden toys more or less have the taste of wood itself. If the taste is too strong, it means that the toy is too tightly sealed or the paint on the surface of the toy is in doubt. Assuming that the plastic packaging is too strict and the toy has a taste, you only need to put the toy in a ventilated and cool place for 2-3 days to deal with the taste question. Under normal circumstances, there should be no doubt as long as the toy paint is acquired through formal channels.
2. Is the appearance lubricated and free of burrs
Most of the wooden toys are handmade, so the smoother the toy, the more precise the workmanship. Parents should choose toys that are lubricated and have no burrs to prevent their babies from being stabbed by burrs during play.
