Plan Toys not only uses eco-friendly manufacturing practices, but its aesthetic is clean and classic enough to appeal to style-conscious parents. In 1981, this Thai company began crafting educational toys from a sustainable compound called rubber wood. Ever since, Plan Toys has been expanding into global markets and promoting the use of non-toxic materials like formaldehyde-free glue and soy ink. Offerings include colorful dollhouses, block sets, walkers, and rockers, plus large-scale activity stations for infants on up to preschoolers.
If a beloved wooden train set was a distinct part of your childhood, chances are it was made by Brio. The brand was born from humble beginnings: More than 130 years ago, founder Ivar Bengtsson and his wife Sissa Persdotter started by selling wood-chip baskets in a small Swedish village outside Osby. Today, the family-run company continues the tradition of simple, colorful design and careful craftsmanship — now enhanced by the use of Forest Stewardship Council-certified wood. Make memories for the kids in your life with a beautifully made toy from our mix of favorites below: Think timeless train cars and track setups, vibrant magnetic blocks, pull toys in adorable animal shapes, and more.
