Do you remember playing with those great wooden toys as a kid? I remember sitting in the front room of my great-grandparents and playing with wooden blocks. They were some of my favorite toys to play with there, and they were the same ones my mom and her brothers grew up with playing with.
Each year great new toys come out, new exciting and fun. They’re great – but sometimes they lack the intrigue and durability as wooden toys. And the chances of some of those toys lasting to your kids, or grand kids playing with them gets less and less.
Wooden toys help grow imagination, and can help your kid learn spatial relationships and much more! Where can you find wooden toys now? One of the best places to find wooden toys is Oompa. Where they not only focus on wooden toys and furniture, but also make sure they are eco-friendly.
Oompa sent me one of their Wooden Trikes to review for the holiday season. It is constructed of sustainable rubberwood and uses water based paint (no fear of lead!). It is a sleek modern design but constructed to last. The wheels all have rubber treads so you can ride it inside and outside without it damaging the trike.
The Wooden Trike comes in one box, but it does require you to assemble it. It came in four pieces, and required very few tools. We had it assembled in under 20 minutes – and yes, by we, I mean me and the little guy! He even helped assemble his new ride :).
After we were done putting it together, we instantly had to go outside and try it out! He raced up and down the driveway, and to one end of the neighborhood and back. The only complaint he had was it was a little stiff at first, but it loosened up as he played.
We both love the Wooden Trike, and I love the fact that it can be used for generations to come. It is a great investment in a toy (which you don’t normally get!).
The Oompa Wooden Trike is for ages 3 and up. It does require some assembly (which was really easy!) And normally the Wooden Trike retails for $139.99 but right now it’s on sale for $69.99! It makes a great holiday gift! You can buy the Wooden Trike online here.
