10 Wooden Toddler Toys To Put Under The Tree

wooden toddler toys My toddler’s Christmas haul last year consisted of far too many store-bought toys that required AA batteries, and a hacksaw to free them from their packaging!

This year, in an effort to get back to basics, I have been shopping for handmade toys that do not blink, or buzz, or force me to listen to the same song six million times in succession.

When it comes right down to it, my toddler’s taste in toys is pretty simple. He likes to build things, to use his imagination, to push and pull, and to stack and sort.

Check out this gallery of 10 fun, educational, and unique wooden toddler toys — all perfect for gifting this holiday season!
