Wooden Baby Toys the Perfect Gift for a Baby Shower

By John Ashleigh Subscribe to RSS | May 29th 2012 | Views:

You’ve just received a cute little invitation for your friend’s baby shower and you can’t wait to see the tiny bundle of joy and bring a sweet gift for the baby.

However, when you get to the toy store you are baffled. Toys have sure changed since you were little! These days everything lights up, sings, dances or has an incredibly complex computer. You wander through dolls with artificial intelligence, laptops for toddlers, singing teddy bears and all of the merchandise from the latest blockbuster, wondering where the simple toys are and what you could possibly choose for your friend’s new baby.

The good news is that you don’t have to buy the latest bewildering new-fangled toy at all. In fact, there are many beautifully crafted traditional wooden baby toys on the market which are simple, loveable and completely timeless. Oh, and they never run out of batteries!

Rather than being a passing fad, these types of traditional wooden baby toys have been around for generations and they are always loved by children. They are simple, fun and stimulating to a child’s imagination.

Remember; when they reach the age of 3-5 months babies tend to put anything they can get their hands on in their mouth. Make sure that the toy you choose will not pose a choking hazard or be hard on their tough gums. Here are some ideas for wooden baby toys that you can give as a gift at a friend’s baby shower:

Musical Toys

Babies love to play with things that make noise, and this has been shown to improve their brain development and function. There are many musical instrument wooden baby toys such as rattles, drum sets, tambourines, maracas and xylophones.

Building Blocks

A set of simple wooden building blocks is an absolutely essential toy for a baby. Why? With a little bit of imagination these blocks can be turned into absolutely anything. Also, blocks can be played with in varying levels of complexity, so while a young toddler will be fascinating with simply stacked them on top of each other an older child will build more complex structures.


There are so many cute little wooden cars, trucks, buses and other vehicles available for little ones. These types of wheeled wooden baby toys are great for toddlers because they develop their hand-eye coordination by wheeling them back and forth on the floor. They can also be used for imaginative play and older children will create entire worlds for their little wooden cars to drive around in.

These are just a few of the excellent wooden baby toys available. This type of gift is thoughtful, practical and will last for many years.
