Recently we were sent a lovely wooden toy from Sri Toys to test
out. Sri Toys sell a wide selection of toys made from natural,
sustainable and biodegradable rubber wood. Furthermore the products
are sourced from sustainable rubber wood and each product is
I think what I love most about these products is the fact that
they’re made from trees in Sri Lanka that would normally be burnt
once they stop producing latex effectively. I think this is key,
because they aren’t carelessly chopping trees down, they’re actually
recycling trees that would otherwise be destroyed.
The packaging is mostly cardboard and recyclable, and I think the
quality of the toy is fantastic. I have to admit, I think wooden toys
are so much nicer than plastic ones, they just have that extra
luxurious feel to them.
The box was emptied out and this is when the fun began! Molly was
on her own at first, piecing it together and I will say I believe it
was quite challenging. Even when George joined her, the activity
wasn’t complete in super fast time, the puzzle challenged their minds
and their co-operation! Even when Warren returned from work and the
puzzle was scattered about after a lengthy play session, he too found
it challenging to piece together, but he did it in record time!
Sri Toys are focused on developing hand-eye coordination, fine and
gross motor skills, independent or cooperative play, role play and
learning. We received a wooden tree with animals and as soon as we
opened it both children were fascinated.
Once the tree was complete they began playing with the little
figures, using voices and creating a little game together. After a
while they discovered they could stand the tree up! This was very
exciting for them (and me!), it looked amazing and required even more
patience to piece it together in this way.
We love Sri Toys, their ethics are spot on and their products are
simply gorgeous. Do you have any of their toys? What are your
