This is something you probably never thought about until you've had a baby. Yes! Wooden toys can most definitely be safer for your baby. They are a great choice for parents looking to avoid chemicals such as BPA, PVC or phthalates commonly found in plastics.
Mainstream toys can contain toxic chemicals and heavy metals (lets face it, babies put everything in their mouth), therefore, there is a need to move towards being more conscious parents, choose safer, eco-friendly and non-toxic baby toys.
There are many reasons why wooden toys are a better option, not only for your child but the environment as well. Wood is durable, biodegradable and stronger by comparison to plastics, which makes wooden toys often less risky.
However, be aware of cheap low quality wood which can be made of plywood, be full of toxic glues and formaldehyde.
