There are many kinds of toys, such as plastic toys, plush toys, wooden toys, electric toys, etc. Toys of different textures will bring different feelings to babies. But as long as they are age-appropriate, educational, and safe toys, they are all good toys. Wooden toys are loved by parents because of the naturalness of their materials, but there are still many things parents need to know about buying good wooden toys.
Open the package and check for peculiar smell:
General wooden toys more or less have the smell of wood itself. If the smell is too strong, it means that the toy is too tightly sealed or the surface of the toy has a problem with the paint. If the plastic seal is too tight and the toy smells, you only need to put the toy in a cool, ventilated place for 2-3 days to solve the smell problem. Under normal circumstances, as long as the toy paint is purchased through formal channels, there should be no problem.
Check whether the surface of the wooden toy is smooth and free of burrs:
Most wooden toys are handmade, so the smoother the surface of the toy, the finer the workmanship. Parents should choose toys with a smooth surface and no burrs to prevent babies from getting stuck by burrs during the game.
The materials used in wooden toys are generally divided into three categories, one is imported rubber wood, beech wood, etc. This type of wood has fine texture, good hand feel, and durable, but the relative price is higher than ordinary toys. One type is linden wood, pine wood, etc. This type of wood has beautiful texture and light touch, and most of the general toys are used. One type is splint toys, which are generally suitable for the production of jigsaw or flat toys. Parents can choose suitable wooden toys according to their preferences.
View age range:
Each toy has a recommended age for young children, and parents should choose toys that are suitable for your child’s age. Babies under 3 years old have poor self-protection awareness and are easy to put toys in their mouths or nostrils. Therefore, you should choose toys with larger blocks, simple shapes, and smooth surfaces; babies over 3 years old have rich sensory experience , Safety awareness is relatively increased, and parents can choose more elaborate toys.
