16 Colorful Toys for Toddlers Made From Wood
1. Grimm’s Stacking Tower: I just love the deep colors of this stacking tower! Such a great way to practice those fine motor skills while introducing colors and sizes!
2. Melissa & Doug Sort and Stack Board: Both of my kids loved this toy! When the children were younger, they’d place the shapes haphazardly on the pegs, and as they got older they’d begin to sort the shapes by color!
3. Grimm’s Small Stepped Pyramid of Wooden Building Blocks: This is for sure on our wish list! My mind is just racing with all the possibilities of play and learning that these little wooden blocks could be used for!
4. Plan Toys Cone Sorting: Here’s another wooden toy both my kids just loved. It’s kind of like a stacking tower taken to the next level. There’s actually cylinder-shaped pieces that fit together inside the outside circle-shaped pieces.
5. Kid O Color Steps Puzzle : We have a few puzzles by Kid O, and we just love them! This puzzle provides a great introduction to sizes and colors!
6. Plan Toys Lacing Beads: I just love the feel of these wooden beads! Both of my kids used them when they were first learning to thread things.
7. Melissa & Doug Car Carrier: This is one of Theo’s favorite toys! He loves being able to roll the car carrier around and thinks it’s super fun that little cars fit inside!
8. Plan Toys Stacking Tree: This is one of our all time favorite toys! I love the quality of these pieces and all the creating that’s possible!
9. Classic Wooden Abacus: Our wooden abacus has lasted us quite a while. Younger children love moving the beads back and forth. Theo now uses the abacus to practice counting to 3. And I just recently observed Lucy using it to do adding sentences!
10. Tegu Tints Pocket Pouch: We are madly in love with Tegu magnetic blocks! I love this little starter set- it’d be perfect to take on trips!
11. Deluxe Standing Easel: Okay, so this toy does have a bit of plastic, but I couldn’t resist putting an art easel in my gift guide. It’s been one of our most used toys through the years. The kids love drawing and painting on it, and I love putting it out back on a sunny day! (This set does NOT come with the paints.)
12. Wooden Gear Toy: Playing with gears is such a fun way to practice early problem solving skills. This toy also allows for shape and color practice too!
13. Mixer Play Set: This would be such a fun addition to a toy kitchen! My kids always love pretending to bake!
14. Plan Toys Water Blocks: Not only are these blocks super fun to build with, but you can use them to practice color mixing by holding them up together!
15. Magnetic Fishing Puzzle: This toy is like a combination of a puzzle and a game. The kids love trying to fish for their pieces!
16. Plan Toys Geometric Sorting Board: Here’s another great wooden toy for practicing fine motor skills. And the pieces are perfect to use for practicing sorting as well!
