Electronic toys are all the rage from toddlerhood all the way through adulthood.  Adults get the privilege of picking our their own toys - big screen TVs, iPads, computers, cell phones, smart appliances - the list goes on and on.  Children depend on adults to pick out their toys for them.  Parents, you are in charge.  You get to decide what toys your kids do and do not play with.  Choose wisely.  It's OK for kids to have electronic toys, but they need non-electronic toys as well.  In fact, in my opinion, children should have more non-electronic toys than electronic toys.  They certainly should spend more time playing with non-electronic toys.  Playing with non-electronic toys gives kids a chance to exercise their own imaginations, build small motor skills, large motor skills, and even critical thinking skills.  Playing with non-electronic toys allows kids to do STEM and STEAM activities without even realizing it.  With proper age appropriate toys, kids learn while they play.  A good way to build these skills and many more skills is to allow your kids to enjoy wooden toys.  If you think back to your own childhood, especially if you are older like me, you can probably think of your favorite childhood toys.  You are probably remembering a few favorite toys right now which probably includes memories of wooden toys.  If you would like to add wooden toys to your child's toy box or play room, I've compiled a list of the best wooden toys for kids.

Here is an oldie but a goodie.  Remember Lincoln Logs?  We had them.  My cousins had them.  We played with them all the time.  Lincoln Logs provided hours of educational entertainment for us way back then and they are still fun for kids to play with today.

As you can see, wooden toys are still great items for kids.  They provide hours of entertainment and kids learn while they play which is, in my opinion, the best way to learn for younger children.  I hope you find these suggestions helpful.  

Did I leave out a favorite from your childhood or a wooden toy your kids love?  Tell us about them in the comments!
