Wooden Toys and Nursery Essentials Are the Best for Your Child Development

Early life experiences have a crucial role in one’s later life as they provide a groundwork for their ability to adapt, cope with life’s challenges, and succeed. They happen from the time a child is born and continues into the preschool age, about 5 years of age. During this period, a child’s brain develops at the fastest rate.

Early Childhood Experiences are Critical to your Child’s Success

These experiences are highly critical for children’s learning and are heavily dependent on the surroundings, which include the people and the things around them that stimulate their senses. Regardless of whether they are positive or negative, they shape someone’s personality and help create a long-standing impact on how a person will behave later on in their adulthood.

Upon birth, children are naturally curious, ready to explore, learn, and accumulate skills to help them navigate their environment. It allows them to adapt, develop, survive, and be independent. Exposure to different sensory stimuli, such as social interaction, sound, and play forge neural pathways that are critically important in your child's cognitive development that affect their ability to solve problems, learn, and recall.

Stimulate Your Child’s Senses with the Right Materials

So, parents can rest assured that their children are set up for success. It's important to pick the right and safe materials that will perfectly complement their child’s instinct to explore and effectively stimulate their cognitive functions and development. Quality wooden toys and thoughtfully crafted wooden nursery essentials are the way to go to supplement learning, promote creativity, keep your children amused, and help them achieve their full potential all while keeping aesthetics, sustainability and safety in place.

Never Go Wrong with Wood

Furniture that is made out of wood is already established among the best choices mainly because of their versatility. They can seamlessly blend with any home interior design. Moreover, there are far more convincing reasons why they make the most ideal baby room necessities and playthings for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.

1. Safe and non-toxic

From the moment babies are born until the final stretch of their early childhood is when they're most sensitive to all the stimuli. Harmful chemicals are no exception to these that may be present in other materials that toy companies use, such as plastic. Wood is a natural resource that safely co-exist with us. Infants have the predilection to putting into their mouth everything they touch as part of their inherent curiosity and desire to learn. Because woods are intrinsically non-toxic, they make among the best choices for toys for early childhood. Rest assured that Monty Toy Store's baby wooden jumper, The Rue, meets the highest quality standards of the wood that was used in creating it. It's organic and non-toxic. The safety of your child from any harmful chemicals is guaranteed. 

Although the finished product needs to undergo a multitude of processes before they are ready for production, manufacturers always put meticulous care in ensuring that their toys will not be tainted with any harmful chemicals, such as, but not limited to, lead that can jeopardize the children's health.

It's difficult to make other materials non-toxic

With other materials, eschewing from chemicals that may downwardly affect the children's safety is harder to achieve.

Because wooden toys are often designed by hand and artisans, they are designed and sculpted to have smoother surfaces and curved edges to minimize potential injuries during playtime.

Safety is always the top priority, so wooden toys make the best early childhood playthings for development. Parents can have the peace of mind that their kids' exposure to hazardous elements are minimized to an innocuous level, if not completely mitigated.

2. Best for learning and sensory exposure

Play items and nursery furniture that are made of wood have a unique feel to them. Their natural texture and smell activate various senses in a developing child. Children appreciate and respond to all these details subconsciously and it plays a critical part in their mental advancement.

Although almost all toys in the market promotes open-ended play to encourage imagination and enhance cognitive skills, such as problem solving, creativity, and critical thinking, hardwood toys and nursery furniture and accouterments, such as baby jumper, remain the most ideal choice because of their dense weight that makes the children feel more and promote physical well-being too.

Other examples of these would be wooden blocks that toddlers and preschoolers can safely stack and sort or build different structures to amplify and exercise their imagination. Moreover, wooden toys are crafted to be simple, but effective and beneficial. Their sheer simplicity allows developing children to thrive with their ideas, concentrate on sensory experiences and interact with their surroundings for the optimal learning possible.

3. Sustainable, eco-friendly, renewable, biodegradable

For parents who are eco-conscious who want to instill the right values to their kids to be appreciative of our ecosystem and be stewards of safekeeping our motherland, going wood-based for the nursery supplies and toys is a must.

Wood is a naturally sourced material and a fundamental part of our survival. They came from trees that absorb carbon dioxide making the Earth more ideal for our survival. Even after they've been made into furniture or toys, they continue to store non-harmful carbon footprints.

Trees are renewable resources. While their growth takes a long time, planting and maintaining them for the succeeding generations don't cost a staggering amount, making the manufacturing processes relatively simple.

Unlike plastic, that continues to pollute and pile up in the depths of the oceans for thousands of years, wood can last a few hundred years. But that doesn't mean they can no longer be useful. Wood can be recycled repeatedly.

When it reaches its demise, it gives itself back and decomposes without harming the environment, taking its part in a healthy ecosystem.

4. Durable and resilient to wear-and-term

Wood is a dense and sturdy material. They can withstand the child's energy to play and explore. They can keep up with a developing child's unpredictability. They can endure different impacts, such as, but not limited to being thrown and toppled without having a dent in its structural integrity. They don't break and become brittle over time.

Manufacturers also put a lot of effort in carefully shaping and sculpting these toys and nursery items to ensure they are free from defects and their lifespan is maximized with very minimal care.

This provides a long-lasting opportunity for playtime, learning, and development. They don't need special care or attention to keep up with the parents' and children's long-term needs. These sustainable wooden playthings can exist be handed down for the generations to come. Now parents can forget about immediate replacements and buying the same thing for their future children.


5. Aesthetically pleasing

Children's knickknacks, play items and infants’ nursery objects don't need to look dull and unstylish. Among the key advantages of having wood-based stuff for your children's needs is the timeless and classic aesthetic appeal that are inherent to them. It's made even better when it's coupled with other materials such as cotton that is ideal for a child's sensitive and delicate skin. Just take a look at the Monty Organic Cotton Play Tunnel.

Toys made from wood and other aesthetically appealing materials are sleek and perfectly suited for modern homes. They can blend with any room decor and can charm anyone's taste because of their natural patterns and organic textures. Their aesthetics is sure to withstand the test of time and trump all the fleeting trends and fad, making them an ultimate practical choice for parents. Wood-based toys and other baby essentials are often crafted and refined by fine artisans where art and function are molded into one to create a finished product that focus on experience as a whole.
