About Wild Wood Toys
Wild-wood-Toys is a supplier of traditional wooden toys. Based in Waterford, Ireland, we currently trade at the Waterford City Farmers market each Saturday in the heart of Waterford City. We also supply wooden toys to playschools, attend Trade Fares and special events , where our colourful display has been very warmly received. This online project is in response to the many requests from customers who have discovered us at various events and markets throughout the country. Typically our stall can be identified by the sound of modern children loudly and happily discovering the toys their grandparents took for granted. Toys rarely seen nowadays, but no less fun!
Each wooden toy is a unique object, and people are often amazed by the simple ingenuity of design and the artistic value of each one. Typically made from beechwood, maple, birch or pine, these toys are durable made to last. All toys are hand-made from materials harvested from managed forests. They are EN71 and CE certified and contain no toxic substances.
There is an increasing demand today for wooden toys, - it’s not hard to see why. Parents are concerned that many modern toys over-stimulate, don’t encourage peer interaction or simply don’t last. The experts too point out that with so many electronic toys, the simple relationships of natural forces aren't evident with buttons and circuitry.
Not so with wooden toys, which rely on the simplest of forces of all to work. These toys are designed to stimulate an appetite for learning in children, and allow children to experiment with different forces simply and safely. They encourage the development of imaginative and social play. They encourage children to develop their fine motor and tactile skills.
We hope you enjoy them as much as we do here at Wild-wood-Toys!
