Plastics and metals have long replaced wood as the primary material for making children’s toys on a commercial level. The reason is obvious. The newer materials can be molded, extruded, poured, and shaped using machines rather than the touch of a human craftsman. Hundreds and thousands of toy units can be at one time, something that was never possible with wooden toy manufacturers.

Fortunately, there are still a number of quality toy companies that see the timeless value and beauty in wooden toys. There is a certain natural character in wood that can’t be duplicated with synthetic materials. The flow of the grain, the varying hues of color, even the delicious odors of various woods translate into wood toys that spark the imagination and remind us of the days of handcrafted toys.

Many of the best wooden toy stores are found on the internet because most of the manufacturers are located outside the United States. Here are five of the best:
