As your baby’s motor skills develop, it’s important for mama to provide him/her with toys that can help them learn about touch, stacking, balancing and building. Eco-friendly wooden building blocks are the perfect toy for just that—and they’re fun and safe too!
Save: This organic and eco-friendly blocks set ($28) from Smiling Tree Toys(on Etsy) is made from organic hardwood and lightly coated with Smiling Tree Toys‘ own blend of homegrown organic Camelina oil and beeswax —which they state is organic, safe and non-toxic—for safety and durability. The set comes in a reusable, natural, drawstring cotton bag which make excellent carrying pouches for taking toys on-the-go—and also make simple but stylish gift packaging.
Splurge: This limited-edition Discovery Set ($85) from Tegu includes 26 magnetic blocks—made from Mahogany—in three shapes: 12 Cubes, 10 Long Planks, and 4 Short Planks. They come packaged in a large box that can be used to store the blocks for years to come. Tegu blocks are manufactured with the magnets inside each block and are recommended for children age 3 and up.
