Although my children have their share of electronic toys that make noises and play music, I’m a huge fan of wooden toys. Wooden toys have a good old-fashioned feel to them with their substance and heft, are naturally sourced and made, celebrate artisanal craftsmanship, and encourage creative play and imagination.

Smiling Tree Toys’ collection is entirely based on wooden toys, ranging from cars, rattles, blocks, alphabet tiles, teethers, stackers, shape sorters, and more. Some of the toys adhere to Montessori and Waldorf learning systems and many of their toys can be personalized as well, making great gifts.

Smiling Tree Toys uses sustainably harvested hardwoods from the U.S., and each toy is handmade, also in the U.S.
