About Us - Wooden Toys for Toddlers
Wooden Toys for Toddlers
We stock products that make a difference to our children and their future has always been one of my greatest passions. Predominantly wooden toys for kids. And, it’s with the birth of my first son Finn that this passion took off and a new journey began.
Like many parents, we received many gifts for our new-born that were made of plastic, took up space and generally had a short-term future. As they piled up in our house I started to research more about the products and how I could recycle them.
What I found was rather alarming, with 90% of the worlds toys made of plastic and many reputable sources claiming that 80% of all toys actually end up in landfill, incinerators or the ocean.
In France alone 40 million toys end up as waste each year. And in the UK almost a third of all parents have admitted to throwing away toys in good working order just because their children have finished playing with them. Put this aside and then consider the many studies showing the harmful effects that plastic toys can have on children and our planet, it was important for me to explore alternative and responsible ways to ensure a better future for our children and our planet.
Recycling Toys and eco-friendly toys
I started recycling toys on parent groups but also took more of an interest in high quality toys that naturally create learning through play, spark imagination and that could be remembered by generations, be easily stored and look good in the house without having to be hidden away from visiting guests. I wanted something different for my son, something he could one day pass on to his own children and as a result, my love for wooden toys and planet-friendly toys was born.
As loving, caring parents, we all want the very best for our children. We want them to dream big, to grow up surrounded by happiness and to watch them confidently develop into their own delightful characters. At Bell & Finn we like to provide that magical experience that stimulates imagination, creativity and fun for children and ensure a brighter future for the next generation.
Our high quality, wooden toys are carefully curated to help inspire and educate kids, but equally provide a prosperous future via eco-conscious and sustainable products. Our products are selected with babies and toddlers in mind so that we can offer them the best possible start in life and during the early leaning phase.
All our toys are carefully selected to align with our ethos and vision with both children and the planet in mind.
