Merrigold Wooden Toys – Wooden Toys – Shape Sorter – Educational Toys for our Toddlers
Wooden Blocks are a timeless children’s toy that continues to be popular through the ages. Merrigold is a company we are proud to have a connection with as they make kids toys, wooden toys, play toys and simple toys to bring joy and fun to our lives. They have a ethical policy and source sustainable materials so that helps us love them more. There is a great reason that parents these days are looking for eco toys. Parents recognise that wooden toys have a different tactile and sensory experience for their children. Plastic toys are everywhere so give your child the gift of quality, natural materials with wooden toys.
Rather than fill your home with a ton of toys, hoping to distract your child with the latest big toy. Choose simple, intellectually stimulating and relaxing toys that mimic life and the home. This is what toddlers enjoy most in a toy.
We don’t have a hundred toys at Nature’s Child for a reason. Why overwhelm you with too many eco toys choices when we are about simplicity, minimalism, education and earth friendly living? We are dedicated to putting conscientious parents and educators in touch with high-quality tools, toys and treasures that are inspired by the principles of the minimalist philosophy. We offer the unique service of ensuring that we don’t overwhelm you with choice but provide classic, timeless toys. You don’t have to spend hours online or in a shop trying to filter out all the plastic distractions and media merchandise. You can shop quickly and confidently knowing that everything at Nature’s Child will inspire, engage and delight you and your child!
Always balance playing inside with playing outside with your children.

Merrigold toys are certified and comply with the requirements of the following:
EN71-1:2001 and AS/NZS ISO 8124-1:2002 – Safety Requirements related to Mechanical and Physical Properties.
EN71-2:1994 and AS/NZS ISO 8124-2:1994 – Flammability.

Merrigold wooden toys are made from rubberwood, which is the most ecologically “friendly” timber used in today’s toys and furniture industry.
After the life of a rubber tree, which is generally 25 years, the latex yields become extremely low making it no longer commercially sustainable. The tree is then cut down so that a new tree can be planted. So, unlike other woods that are cut down for the sole purpose of producing furniture, rubberwood is used only after it completes its latex producing cycle and dies. This wood is therefore an environmental – friendly material because we are now using what was going as waste.
Merrigold has been importing rubberwood toys for the past 11 years. The toys are manufactured in Thailand and they are specifically designed to stimulate children’s interest and build on their developmental skills. They also promote interaction between children and parents.
