Wooden toys are a kind of toys that are widely used, and the materials are very simple. Many parents will buy this kind of toys for their children because they are not harmful, more environmentally friendly and durable, and help their children grow. Wooden toys are usually made of natural solid wood, and it is common to do non-paint treatment or safe special water-based paint treatment on the surface.
Below I will introduce the commonly used materials for wooden toys. The most common materials for wooden toys currently on sale in the domestic market are: pine, sorrel, basswood, basswood plywood, MDF (wood composite board, often referred to as density board), beech wood, and rubber wood.
pine: the cheapest (imported more expensive), lighter, whiter, larger wood grain, easier to fall and crack than other wood.
Hemu: It is most often used as wooden toys. It is more expensive than pine, has a higher density, is heavier, has uniform texture, and is resistant to falling.
Hemu Variety City Building Block Basswood: beige, light weight, no wood grain, resistant to falling, and the price is more expensive than the two.
Basswood plywood: easy to cut, often used to make wooden puzzles.
MDF: Density board, easy to cut, brown, commonly used in the mixed water (painted place) part of wooden toys, and the price is cheap.
Beech wood: The grain is uniform, the cross section is a bit like rice grains, bit by bit, the price is higher than that of Hemu, and it is also resistant to falling.
