Re: Why wooden toys?
Re: environmentally conscious wooden toys.
I don't know much about other brands of wooden toys, but I know that HABA is a very environmentally conscious company. They use every scrap & speck of wood for their toys & the wood that isn't suitable for making toys is use to heat the factory in the winter! Even the sawdust is used for fuel to heat the homes of local residents.
HABA wood is kiln-dried & here is a link to why that's better for the environment: http://www.loghome.net/kuhns1.htm
