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.
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.
Innovative playtime picks to get their gears turning early
Playing is a kid’s job, and this line of educational toys makes playtime as enriching as it is fun. Included in today’s toy box: foam play mats featuring numbers and letters, colorful blocks that help kids build their imaginations, plus musical instruments, shape sorters, and more.
These toys are proof that you can't underestimate the power of play. Foam mats teach letters and numbers, building blocks teach fine motor skills, and special beanbags teach phonics. The kids will be happy, and so will you.
