When I was back in the US over the holidays, I saw a great toy catalog, Magic Cabin. They have loads of high quality wood toys, and I noticed almost all of them were Made in Germany. So, where can we get them here? I know of a couple good toy stores here in Cologne which carry wood toys, but I was hoping to find an online source, perhaps with a wider selection. I don't just mean your basic Haba toys..much as I love those, they are everywhere.

So, anyone know of a good online resource for natural and wood toys? There must be one, or several, as Germany is practically the world headquarters for wood toys!

Here are some links to toys I'd recommend:

 

http://www.nictoys.com
http://www.brio-shop.de <-- really cool train tracks!
http://www.haba.de/haba/home.htm
http://www.selecta-spielzeug.de

 

ETA: Jako-o has a wooden toy corner, too.

maybe you could also check sellers on dawanda.de, which is like etsy (only not as many options).

I guess I should have been clearer, I meant German-made wood toys in Germany. This company has some great German-made wood toys, but they only ship within the US. However, I can search using the German brands they have, so thanks.  love.gif

Try Ostheimer. Beautiful, all natural, handcrafted wooden toys. Expensive though.

 

You can go to their website directly or try amazon.
