Heirloom Toys: Are They Worth the Investment?

When you were a kid, what were your favorite toys? Maybe you had a precious doll or an action figure you took everywhere. Perhaps it was a beat-up matchbox race car. Do you have any of these playthings still lying around? Maybe one or two, but I’ll bet the doll’s hair you once lovingly brushed over and over is now a tangled, frizzy mess, and the beloved race car, once bright red, is now brown and tarnished, missing a wheel.

What Toys Do Kids Naturally Gravitate Towards?

Dolls, legos, cars, electronics, stuffed animals… As a parent, it can be overwhelming to decide what kind of toys to fill your playroom with. Nothing is worse than dropping a pretty penny on something that only gets looked at once before it’s tossed on the top shelf, never to be touched again. That’s why when it comes to children’s toys, you want something that will last and be played with again and again.

Oh, to be a child again… to explore the world for the first time. To look at the sky in wonder and giggle at the feeling of a bug crawling across your hand.

There is a current debate between mass-produced toys and handmade kids’ toys, and people are truly torn between the two. The former often incorporates technology into manufacturing to enhance the appeal for kids and adults buying them. On the other hand, handmade options are free from tech aids and usually environmentally sustainable. This may explain why the stain-free wooden toys market made $23 billion in 2020. At CUBOS, we believe in ecologically sustainable toys, and here is why.

How to Improve Your Baby's Dexterity

Parents want to do everything they can to help their children succeed. One way to do this is to help them develop their dexterity early on. Dexterity is the ability to control the movement of your fingers and hands, and it is essential for many activities, such as writing, cooking, or playing an instrument. You can do many things to help your child develop their dexterity, but one of the most engaging ways is using toys that specifically target this skill.

Children's Toys: Why Materials Matter

Children's Toys: Why Materials Matter

Do you know what toys your child is playing with? It's not just about what kind of toy it is, but also what the toy is made out of. Children's toys may be the last thing you suspect to be a harm to your children. But, disguised in colorful patterns and innocent objects, harmful chemicals are lurking within your children's toys. Instead, get Montessori wooden toys, a safer and cleaner alternative for your family.
