The Top 5 Traditional Wooden Toys This Christmas

I am normally a purist when it comes to toys. I like them to be sturdy, wooden, and built to last. Timeless toys that can be handed down from brother to sister and last for decades.

So I have been researching toys to buy my 8 month old son for Christmas.

Here are my top five.



1. 

Pull Along Giraffe 
by BRIO.




2. 

London Bus by BAJO 
(exclusive to The White Company)


3.

Noah's Ark by Jammtoys

4.

Janod Caramel Rocking Horse
(at John Lewis)



5.

Wobbly Goblin by BAJO
(at Green Owl Toys)



He will be eight months old at Christmas and I know some of these are for a slightly older child but I'm not a dad who freaks out and breaks into a sweat about the recommended ages for toys. Back in the day, these guidelines didn't even exist!

I'd say they are more than suitable for an infant or toddler who is one or two years old. Just make sure you keep an eye on your little one when they are playing!

Happy hunting, and I will be adding other ideas to my Pinterest page.

Please follow me and share your own ideas, I'd love to see them!

  1. Oh wow, I love the wobbly goblin!

    I bought the Plan Toys wooden drum for my youngest, who turned 1 in November. It is sturdy and nice to look at, and mostly importantly of all, it makes a nice noise.

    The four top seeds should be March Madness Live Stream guarding national champion Villanova, North Carolina, Kansas and Gonzaga. Those four have recently been at the top of the rankings and possess also been the selections of bracketologists March Madness Bracket like ESPN's Later on Lunardi and March Madness 2017 s Jerry Palm, and it could be a surprise if they didn't emerge at the conclusion of the meeting tournaments that will be held at throughout the week.

Head mentor Jay Wright has stored his foot on the gas pedal, and the Wildcats have continued to produce on a steady most basic. NCAA March Madness

    Villanova is the Zero. 1 seed in the Big East tournament 2017 March Madness , and while that league has regularly produced upsets in the conference tournament, it would be somewhat of a shocker if the Wildcats didn't make it to it game. In the event that they face second-seeded Retainer, it could be a good game that moves down to the cable because Butler has recently defeated Villanova twice.

  11. Three points in qualifying, and there is plenty on the line. Chile is in fourth place with 20 points and Argentina is in fifth with 19. If either loses, they will fall out of the top five spots if Colombia wins against Bolivia. This is not a must-win for either, but getting points here will see them inch closer to a spot in next year’s World Cup.
