Ecofriendly Wood Toys From Selecta

Updated on February 3, 2015

Buy ecofriendly wood toys not made in China

If you want to buy green ecofriendly wood toys, Selecta is for you. Selecta is a German company. They design and make their toys in Germany, using non-toxic products. They have very high standards. Of course, Selecta toys are more expensive. But you pay for quality. You have a choice to make: one great quality, safe and non toxic toy, or two toys made in China by big company such as Mattel..

I have made the choice for my kids. They have less, but I know where and how they are made..

You can buy these ecofriendly wood toys online as well as selected toy shop worldwide.

High quality, ecological toys.

Toys not made in China

Selecta is committed to sustainable forest management.

They use non-toxic dyes, paints and laquers. They also put Beewax finish on all their toddler's toys.

All their toys are in compliance with European and US standards (EN71, ASTM)

My son's favorite Selecta wood toys

Selecta Puzzle Picture Cubes

Selecta offers many different Puzzle Picture Cubes, in 4 or 6 cubes. They are high quality and you will pass them on to your next kid's and even after.

I bought my son a box of Selecta cubes puzzle when he was one year old. Beautiful wood blocks, finished with beeswax. This wood puzzle is a versatile toy. My son played and still play a lot with it. Depending on you kid's age, he will use it different ways: the first stage will be just grabbing, looking at the colors and such. You can do the puzzle and show him the images and tell stories. A little later, when he has more dexterity he will try to stack the cubes. At this stage you can do the puzzle, showing him how to do it. Later on he will try to do the puzzle all by himself.


Favorite Animals Wooden Picture Book

4 "pages" books. Many different topics available.

Beautiful wooden books where you and your child make whatever story you want! My son has 3 different ones and I do "read" from them since he is 6 months old. Now at 4 he has given them to his 6 months old sister. These books are very nice to handle, very smooth and cute.

I am the one who falled in love with this toy over 4 years ago and bought it because it was cute. It's the first Selecta toy I bought for my son. This is a great toy for toddler: it combines a pull toy and a stacking toy. Very safe, the pins where you stack the rings are pliable so if you kid falls on it he won't be hurt. The colors are vivid and this toy was a hit with my son.


Let's talk money!

Would you pay 2 to 3 times more for a safe and ecological, European or North American made toy

      I enjoy making wooden toys and giving them as gifts to nieces, nephews and my own kids. My oldest niece still has a doll cradle that I made over 15 years ago!

      We are trying to reduce the amount of plastic that our kids are exposed to. We recently switched to glass dishware and chucked the plastic cups.

      Wooden toys feel better and last longer. Very satisfying educational experiences for children.

      I was sorry to hear that this week Selecta will no longer be selling their toys to the US market. This is because the cost of proving compliance with the new rules would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars (not complying...the cost of proving compliance). The law could easily have been written to raise toys to a higher standard without the draconian compliance requirements that are being in place and which will cause the disappearance of many more natural toys that we LOVE! Find out more at Please get informed & involved to help get changes that can keep the toys safe AND still having a toy (and children's products market).
