There’s something so appealing about natural wooden toys. It’s their simplicity and smoothness that attracts me each and every time. I’ve rounded up 7 wooden animal toys that I love. They can also double up as lovely little decorations in a nursery or play space.
1. The Cheekeyes* make fabby wooden animal playsets with just the slightest hint of colour. They’ve got different playsets on offer including a safari one, a rainforest one and this garden creatures one. Ollie & Forbes have a good selection on offer. Each set has some animals and some extras like trees and mountains and they cost £24 per set.
2. Baileys Home and Garden is a store packed with beautiful objects which include wooden animal toys. This gorgeous chubby elephant is one of their offerings and costs £18.
3. This little wooden monkey can be a playmate or just left on a shelf to be admired. I’m loving his dangly legs and arms. The wooden monkey comes from Not on the High Street and costs £10.50.
4. A natural wood teething ring in the shape of a hippo. So simple, so sweet! Easy to grasp and chew on as much as your bambino likes. This hippo teething toy comes from Little Sapling Toys on Etsy and costs $12 with international shipping available.
5. These beautiful beaky birds come in 3 sizes – small to represent children, medium to represent parents and chubby to represent grandparents (poor grandparents!). They’ve got removable heads so your kiddos can mix and match the heads with the different sized bodies. They cost between $52 and $79 depending on the size and come from the lovely American store Modernchild who ship internationally.
6. Soopsori hand make natural wood toys with good looks and they’re fun too. This cute elephant cart with dominos is a perfect example of their lovely wares. To get this wooden elephant head to Red Lilly where it costs £21.95.
7. This lovely little whale by Areaware isn’t just eye-candy. It slides open to reveal a hidden compartment where your bambino can hide his precious treasures or you can. There’s a range of animal boxes available but the whale is my favourite. I first discovered it at Oeuf NYC but they only ship in the US. For UK readers, you can get the whale at SCP where it costs just under £31.
