1. Wooden Car Toy by OohLookItsARabbit
What a cutie! This adorable Waldorf wood car is just the right size for little hands. With its perfectly smoothed edges and attractive surfaces, this toy will provide hours of entertainment, while also contributing to the development of the child’s motor skills. The toy is cut out of oak and jarrah on a scroll saw, then sand smoothed and finally coated with natural beeswax and organic jojoba oil polish. The axes of the cars are made separately and are, of course, securely glued. However, they could potentially become a choking hazard for children under three years of age. So you may want to just add it to your wishlist for now if your kid is smaller than that. Either way, do head over to the listing for more photos and details, you don’t want to miss out!
