Toys – wooden toys & construction toys & educational toys

Posted by: Geoff Davis In: Buildings|Education|Housing|Learning|Skills|Toys

This page has been on a while, we have had comments about some of the more obscure toys like Building Blasters, Bayco, Betta Bilder etc.

Lego is still very popular as a block building toy, with Duplo and Megabloks (or Megablox) for toys for tots. Lego has got into character Lego such as Star Wars Lego and many more, even Halo Lego which seems a bit violent if you think about its innocuous beginnings.

Wooden toys are getting more popular with people who don’t want to use polluting and expensive battery powered toys.

Bob the Builder is great for older children and the trucks etc are a good solid size and make good noises when pushed about.

Yes I agree! They start with blocks, then Lego and similar; battery driven toys are generally passive, so bad.

There are wooden toys that uses artificial wood which lasts longer compared to organic wood .

But that sounds like plastic, which is perfectly fine for some uses. These are for small children who tends to suck on toys. So non toxic materials are important.

Of course some woods are toxic, but assume wood used in toys is OK, and paint also can be toxic, which is why properly certified toys are important.
