Everyone knows Etsy, right?  It’s THE place to go for all things gorgeous, hand-made by creative people around the world.  It’s the home of my own shop too, Love Chopsy.  Whenever I want something personal, something made and created with love – I head to Etsy.  So for this gift guide, specifically for pretty wooden toys, I knew Etsy would have everything I needed.

The guys over at have listed 15 great benefits of wooden toys for education purposes, including that they’re timeless, durable, and beautiful.  And that’s the focus of this gift guide – beautiful wooden toys that double-up as decor!

10 Beautiful Wooden Toy Gifts on Etsy That Double-up as Decor

I wish when my children were smaller I had been more aware of wooden toys, and not cluttered our house with loud ugly plastic things, that serve no further purpose once the kid’s grow out of them.  They end up in the trash, or being sold off for a couple of quid in a car boot sale.

That’s sad, don’t you agree?

All the wooden toys I’m listing here, as well has having many play benefits, will look absolutely gorgeous on dispay too.  You can’t say that about many plastic toys, can you?
