5 Awesome Reasons To Love The Wooden Toy Trend

Cubbie Lee Toy Company sponsored this post, but all opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support my family!

OK, so it’s not really a trend since wooden toys were some of the first invented, but I feel like they’re making a comeback! We’ve gotten a few wooden toys for our kiddos like a toy car and some puzzles over the years, but not as many as I would like. So when Cubbie Lee Toy Company reached out to me to review some of their sets, it was the perfect timing!

Both of our kids just had their birthdays and I wanted to get Ella a tea set and Hudson something he could build, but I didn’t want to go the plastic route. These sets from Cubbie Lee Toy Company are the perfect wooden toys for babies and toddlers and here’s why:

1. They promote imagination.
As soon as I opened up Ella’s tea set, she knew exactly what to do! I was amazed! She’s never played with a tea set before, but I guess from watching us eat dinner she’s familiar with dishes. Then once Hudson saw the tea set he wanted to play too! He and my husband were even pretending to drink root beer ha ha! Hudson also has a block set, like this one, that he loves to build castles with and knock down with his dump trucks. I just see their minds working a lot more with wooden toys.

2. They don’t make noise (AKA they’re quiet)!
Those techy toys are fun for about 2 seconds…and then it’s the same song over and over and over again! I need to take a lesson from myself and not buy so many noisy toys! Wooden toys make no noise! Except when you knock them down, of course *wink*

3. They are durable and timeless.
I don’t think I have to worry about these Cubbie Lee Toy Company sets breaking! They are super durable and since they’re classic items like a tea set and train set, I know my kids will love them throughout the years. My mom still has a wooden kitchen set in our basement from her childhood that now Hudson likes to play with. Talk about the perfect family heirloom to pass down.

4. They’re relatively inexpensive.
Most of the sets from Cubbie Lee Toy Company are under $20! A lot are around $10! For toys that will last years, that’s a steal!

5. They’re safe.
Some of Hudson’s cars have really small parts on them, that I’m always worried about him choking on. And Ella puts EVERYTHING in her mouth. These wooden toys have few small parts and they aren’t made of cheap plastic, so it’s not like they’ll easily break off. Also, have you ever stepped on a small plastic toy?? OUCH! These wooden toys are way softer on my feet! And I don’t feel like they get as dirty as some of the plastic and fabric toys in our house…

Not only are Cubbie Lee Toy Company products educational, but they are made with sustainable harvest timber and handcrafted to the highest standard. Their toys are made for babies 6 months to children age 5. They offer a 30 day no quibble return policy and 5 Year Cubbie Lee Toy Company Warranty.

These toys are also available on Amazon (hello Prime shipping!) and you get a discount the more  toys you buy! So maybe it’s time to do a little early Christmas shopping right?!
