Retro Wonders! Wooden Toys Are Set to Make a Comeback this Christmas

WITH vintage-styled radios, record players and even kitchen mixers (you’ve seen the ones they use on Bake Off, surely?) all on people’s radar, it’s no surprise that the toy market might be the latest industry to jump on the nostalgia bandwagon. And here at Kiddy Moo, we’re fully expecting a rise in the sale of wooden toys, as we move ever closer to December 25. Here are just a handful of reasons why we think they’re great:

They’re Built to Last

Unlike a lot of toys, which can feature flimsy plastic parts and poorly-made accessories, wooden toys like this traditional chalk board aren’t just great fun to play with; they’re built to stand the test of time, too. 
Everyone remembers scrawling their name on a chalk board at school – and now little ones can get creative in the comfort of their own bedroom with their very own wooden board. With a vintage look, this one (simply click the link above) is made from solid beech timber and features an abacus, letters and number detail, which means it’s just as good for educational play as it is for a spot of art.

They’re Decorative

Okay, so the main purpose of wooden toys – or other traditional play sets – is to play with them. And we can vouch for the fact that there’s lots of fun to be had with every product in our range, since we regularly take them out of their boxes to have a good look at them – sometimes even breaking off from admin or accounts to go back to our youth and have a play!
But wooden toys like the ones you see here in the Kiddy Moo store will also look great in your kids’ bedroom. Adding interest to a bare corner of children’s rooms, colourful wooden toys can brighten any space. 
Place them on shelves or have fun drawing a decorative mural on a chalk board, changing it week by week by encouraging your little angels to get creative.

They Offer Great Value

While our traditional children’s toys are built to last, they also offer great value. We know how important it is to you that you can easily find good quality kids’ toys at prices that won’t break the bank – and it’s the reason we work hard to source items you’ll struggle to find elsewhere for cheaper. 

So, whether you’re looking for toys you remember from your own youth, or you’d like to find something a little bit different for your little one, take a good look around the site.
