Re: Why wooden toys?
The only wooden toys DS has are the Thomas stuff and a set of Lincoln(sp) Logs.
I dont care much for wooden toys because I am always afraid that they will splinter. I had a cousin that swalloed a pice of wood that came off of a toy and it litteraly shredded her throat. She has severe brain damage now and breathes through a tube.
DS is old enough that he desnt put everything in his mouth like an infant so Im not as worried about his Thomas, and the Log set stay put up until he asks for it.
I was warned by my Ped that some of the new wooden tos coming out are made in Brazil and the wood in brazil is treated with chemicals for keeping bugs away and it stays in the wood and wehn wet it seeps out.
I wont have any wooden toys for bean.
