Selecta Spielzeug is one of my favorite toy companies, especially for infants. We have several of their quality wooden toys. These small baby toys are perfect for little hands (and mouths). Even though my son is a toddler now, he still enjoys manipulating the beads and rods of his Selecta toys. They are great little toys for the car and make a great gift for a baby. Oompa carries a large selection of Selecta toys, including the awesome baby gym mentioned in an earlier post. According to the Oompa website, “The designers at Selecta believe that the warmth of wood stimulates all of a child’s senses. It inspires creative play because it appeals to each of the senses in a different way. They are careful to select wood that is flawless and of the best quality. Selecta uses only environmentally friendly, water-based colors. Their toys are finished with beeswax, a substance that child-friendly, safe and has a wonderful, subtle aroma.” The beeswax and water-based color finishes on Selecta toys make them safe for teething and the best alternative to plastic teething toys (See “San Francisco Bans Certain Plastic Toys”). The Selecta website reports, “Because wood is a natural material, it can be taken without doubts into the mouth. The Holzspielzeug of Selecta contains excluding pollution free, completely harmless colors and lacquers, in order to emphasize the special structures of the different woods.”

Love your site! I just finished a post on Toy fair, lamenting this year’s offerings and found your site during research! I will link!
It’s good to see more and more wooden baby toys being offered. They’re much better for children and our environment.
