French Wooden Toys: Natural & Timeless

blog af wooden-toys-intro

Wooden toys are timeless and a throwback to our childhood. I remember going to my grandparents and playing with my cousins with a game of the Goose. It was nearly intact and such a convivial game.

For my daughters, I always look for wooden toys, as I know they could store their favourite ones for the next Generation.

In the Jura region of France, wood is omnipresent and woodworking a tradition.

Take a look at some of the Amazing French toy brands I have discovered, some you may already be aware of, however I bring something new to you.

Numerous French craftsmen & Toys brands used these natural recourses to create ingenious wooden toys such as Vilac, JeuJura, LesjouetsLibres…and the leader Janod, to name but few.

So if you are looking for ecological, strong, durable, timeless and ingenuous toys, have a look of what Janod has to offer.
