While browsing through Etsy today, I found a few wooden toys for babies, toddlers and older children - all of which are made using sustainably harvested woods that are finished using non-toxic oils. Regardless of your child's age, there is something here for all children.
P.S. Stay tuned next week for a Bannor Toys Wooden Blocks giveaway!
