Another One Bites the Dust

Unlike most plastic toys, I expect our 
Plan Toys play food to last for generations.

Not one, but two plastic toys have broken in the last week at my house: a small car and an electronic phonics toy.  They weren't brand new (we did have a few plastic toys break within days of Christmas), but still!


And this is one of the many things I love about wood toys.  They don't seem to break as much, and when they do, they are. . .repairable!  This is because most wood toys are handmade (or could be made by hand), and so it is possible to repair them by hand.  Whereas most plastic toys are created in a factory under conditions (high heat, toxic chemicals) that you most certainly don't want to replicate in your home.  I don't think I've ever successfully repaired a plastic toy.

Here are some wood toys I expect never to break.  I hope that my great-great-grandchildren will someday play with these beauties:
