Why buy Wooden Toys for kids?

Wooden toys have a timeless, classic feel about them. In a world with disposable plastic toys which break before a year is out, wooden toys are crafted to survive. They are heirloom pieces to be handed from generation to generation. There is also a style to wooden toys which can’t be matched by plastic. They look good in a room, they feel like they belong in a toy chest and played with on rainy days. The feel of wooden toys, in your hand, is a feeling that brings back memories or gives new ones to your children. Playing with the wooden farm animals, or chugging a wooden train around the tracks, is a timeless feeling My Happy Helpers can give to your family.

Are wooden toys expensive?

We believe that the wooden toys we sell are great value for money. You can find a bag of plastic farm animals in a $2 store, but they won’t have the same value, nor the same feel to them as our wooden farm animals set. We believe that children will cherish our toys far more than they would the cheaper alternatives.They will become heirlooms, cherished art items displayed on shelves, played with more and loved more. Wooden toys are also environmentally friendly. Wood is a renewable resource, trees can be planted and grown again.

What are the different kinds of wooden toys?

What are the best Toys for babies

Wooden toys for babies are far more healthy than plastic toys. Toys will inevitably end up in a baby’s mouth and they have a porous surface, so moisture and germs are absorbed into the wood and eventually die. In plastic, however, the germs stay on the surface and multiply. Buy some colourful wooden toys for your baby to learn about shapes and colours, and textures. Train their fine motor skills to grip odd shapes and hold spheres and cubes and feel safe knowing their toys will not breed germs after the baby has a chew on them.

Wooden Toys for 2-Year-Olds

Two-year-old children are learning to play with their imagination more, to create stories in their minds, often telling you their weird and whacky stories. They may create stories with families, play soap opera dramas in a dollhouse or fly a rocket to the moon. They’re also learning the power of words, so giving them blocks with letters on them so they can create words, is a vital step in their learning process. Build your child’s confidence in expression and learning through wooden toys from My Happy Helper.

Wooden Toys for 3-year-olds

3-year-olds are growing confident with their body and how to use their muscles. They want to explore the outside, climb around and get dirty. Have them race around on balance bikes or play with castles in the sandpit.  This lust for play and filling their minds with new information can be nurtured inside as well. A general store and a kitchenette can have your kids learning about social skills and interacting with others, simple maths and more. 

Wooden Toys for 4-year-olds

4-year-old children are increasing their social skills, thanks to kindergarten. They’re learning to play with others and learn from other people. Playsets like our Farmyard set or the freight train set can grow imaginative stories, but the learning doubles when friends get involved too. 4-year-old kids also begin to copy their parents and play house or dress-ups. You can encourage this with a beauty set or a tool bench. This can also encourage interactive play with parents and more chances to learn and grow their minds.

Wooden Toys for 5-year-olds

Now your child is in school. They’re reading and writing, using letters more. They are learning the names of things at an accelerated rate. They have friends to play with, and an insatiable curiosity to know everything. You can help feed their knowledge with educational wooden toys. Learning through play, giving their ever-growing imagination plenty of room to soar to great heights, is the best thing for 5-year-olds.
