According to many specialists in child development the best wooden toys are the ones that inspire a child to use critical thinking and problem solving skills while creating their own games and goals. These toys have no set outcome or rules and yet children are drawn to them. They can easily spend hours creating their own rules, new games, and unique ways of using these simple toys.

Some of the best wooden toys may also be some of the simplest and no wooden toy is simpler than building blocks which have been shown to be one of most educational and valuable toys ever made. Building blocks can be all the same size and shape such as cubes which often have numbers and letters carved into them, or more commonly with different shapes such as cylinders, wedges, planks, and boxes which can be combined to make an unlimited number of configurations.

The best wooden toys teach valuable lessons and building blocks can teach a number of lessons from how sharing and playing with others is more fun than playing alone, as well as lessons in physics such as gravity and balance. Stacking the blocks and knocking them down demonstrates these lessons surprisingly well. Blocks also allow the children to create their own goals and build their own games from scratch. A block can be a column in a tower, an imaginary telephone, or a musical instrument depending on how it is imagined and used.
