Timeless Baby Toys: Better Than Technology?

In a world of technological gadgets and gizmos, the baby toys of today are a far cry from their ancestors of an era past. Modern parents can take a stroll down any toy aisle and find a bounty of electronic toys made from or encased in plastic that are designed to stimulate, teach, and thrill babies of all ages. In fact, at times it can seem as though you are walking through a children’s version of a computer store! Even those toys that don’t have any programmed bells and whistles still have a bit of a fake, plastic feel. (That’s probably because they are made of plastic.)

Sometimes, however, simplicity and tradition trump modern advances and this rings especially true when it comes to baby toys. Oh, sure-the musical light up keyboard is nice and fun…for a while. But anyone with kids can testify to the fact that the child will toss the fancy toy to the side in order to play with the box it came in! If you put an older child outside and tell them to play, they’ll find ten thousand uses for a simple stick or rock. In essence, no amount of technology will ever be able to compare with the limitless imagination of a child.

Choosing Simplicity in Baby Toys

With this knowledge, you may be interested in finding baby toys that are more like what you were accustomed to as a child. Think they don’t exist anymore? Think again! Timeless toys like wooden train sets, rocking horses, and shape sorters can be found if you know where to look. Mua xe đẩy gấp gọn cho bé Since these toys are made from wood, they have a much more natural feel to them than the plastic counterparts.

Classic wooden baby toys are also much more durable than plastic toys. No matter how many times they are dropped, they seem to come out unscathed. Indeed, it takes a great deal of force to break a quality wooden toy, and unless you have a future demolition expert on your hands, you won’t have to worry about finding a replacement for that favorite toy that is no longer in production.

Another advantage to wooden baby toys is the added safety benefits. Yes, it will most likely hurt if baby bonks herself in the head with her wooden teether, but she probably won’t do it more than once or twice before she learns-hey, that hurts! What you won’t have to worry about is chemical in the plastic causing health problems, cheap plastic breaking off to become a choking hazard, or industrial goo leaking out of teething rings that are designed to go in the freezer.

One thing you should consider with wooden baby toys, however, is how they are finished. If they are painted, then be sure it isn’t with lead based paint. If they are simply sealed, make sure it is with a non-toxic sealant. Finally inspect the wood to make sure it is smoothly finished so there is no danger of splinters for baby. In the end, your timeless wooden baby toys are likely to provide many more hours of entertainment and much more imagination stimulation than any plastic gadget ever could.
