(Welcome again to Lia, one of the finalists for an editor position at AT:The Nursery. Comment away.)
Despite all the plastic lining the shelves of today’s toy stores, wooden toys will never go out of style. Toymakers today are going way beyond building blocks to bring children of all ages beautifully durable wooden toys.
Blueberry Forest Toys is an online store that has “searched high and low” to bring you quality natural toys from around the world. They offer a wonderful range of wooden toys for babies and children of all ages, starting with a colorful HABA grasping disk for ages 4 months and up.
In addition to their multihued discovery blocks and stacking towers for babies and toddlers, they also offer a great selection of pretend play accessories, and an assortment of pretend HABA fruits and vegetables that would satisfy any green grocer. Their smorgasbord collection of pretend food knows no bounds, like this wooden bento box from Melissa and Doug.
Ryan's Room Dollhouse offers kids a blank slate to paint with their own imagination, as so many of the toys at Blueberry Forest do. Blueberry Forest believes that playing is a child’s most important job, and they offer the perfect tools to help kids get to work. -lia
