French toymaker Boikido creates cute and colorful wooden toys that are made with eco-friendly materials. The wood is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, so it’s renewable, and the paint is environmentally-sound, child-friendly, and water-based. Boikido launched in 2003 with the goal of crafting traditional wooden toys in modern, festive colors.
Playtime finds we love: stacking blocks, mini kitchens, and more
We always try to pick out the most fun toys for our kids (we want the playroom to be the happiest place on earth), but we love it when a toy combines fun with learning. From letters to new languages, the items here all have an educational component (we have books, too!). Our top picks: A play mat made of connecting letters, and toy instruments for mini musicians.
