Wooden Toy Care
How do you care for wooden toys?
As parents and care-givers, we want two things from children's toys: safety and durability.
Toymaking is a special pursuit where the utmost consideration must be given to the ultimate safety of the toy - not just the art and appeal of the woodworking.
One of the wonderful things about a wooden toy is its durability. A well-made toy can last for generations if given proper care.
First, we need to define "well-made", on which toy safety depends. Then, caring for wooden toys is simple.
By following these guidelines from the toymakers at Family Tree Toys, your toys will remain strong and beautiful for your children's children!
