Natural wood building set
We love this building game made from natural sustainable wood. It is simple and beautiful and gives your children the option of 1000’s of building combinations. It’s totally chemical-free and is locally produced in Catalunya.
The different natural colours and grains in the timber stimulate your baby’s vision and hence this is the ideal toy for building as a family if you have youngsters of different ages.
WHY DO WE RECOMMEND YOU TRY TOYS MADE FROM ECO-FRIENDLY WOOD?
Toys are a daily source of toxic substance exposure for our sons and daughters that can lead to health problems down the track. Also, many toys are made outside Europe without guaranteeing respect for the dignity and the rights of those who make them. It is important to choose your toys wisely, look for environmentally friendly, healthy options that are manufactured offering decent working conditions.
WHY HAVE WE CHOSEN TO PLAY WITH THIS BUILDING SET?
