Natural and Recycled Toy Materials
Many of today’s toys depend on loud noises or cheap motorized, plastic parts to keep your child entertained. However, the simplicity of natural toys, using inviting colors and textures, and age appropriate designs, allows your child to experiment with the toy, build motor skills, and learn to play independently. Instead of being over stimulated, your child will develop their own creativity and imagination.
