Many parents find that good quality wooden toys often fall in the category of heirlooms, along with jewelry and vintage oak cribs. A wooden toy doesn't just give fun and entertainment to your young ones, but also a sense of belonging, since these toys are frequently passed from one generation to another.

Plan Toys Stacking Tree

Compared to other stacking toys, this one has a very different theme as it forms a very whimsical pine tree! Each piece of wood is dyed and not painted, therefore it won't chip.

Each wooden piece has a great grip for babies. They are not overly large nor are they too small to be a choking hazard.   All told, it is a unique stacking tree that your baby will want to play with for a long time to come. It's a wonderful wooden toy for babies under 12 months old ... and it looks great when stacked up and placed on a shelf, so it's decorative too!
