The most common materials for wooden toys currently on sale in the domestic market are pine, boki, basswood, basswood plywood, MDF (wood composite board, often referred to as density board), beechwood, and rubberwood.
1. Pine: the cheapest (imported more expensive), lighter, whiter, with larger wood grains, and easier to fall and crack than other woods.
2. Nelumbo: It is most often used as wooden toys. The price is higher than that of pine, with higher density, heavier, uniform texture, and resistance to falling. Basswood: beige, lightweight, no wood grain, resistant to falling, and the price is more expensive than the two.
3. Basswood plywood: easy to cut, often used to make wooden puzzles.
4. MDF: density board, easy to cut, brown, commonly used in the mixed water (painted place) part of wooden toys, and the price is cheap.
5. Beechwood: The grain is uniform, the cross-section is a bit like rice grains, bit by bit, the price is higher than that of Hemu, and it is also resistant to falling.
6. Rubberwood: Toys made of this wood are mostly exported, mainly for young children. They feel very good and safe.
In addition, the price of imported wood is generally higher than that of domestic wood, which is better. Whether it is resistant to falling depends on whether it has been dried before processing. Drying is the degree of time control. If the time is not well controlled, often the wood will crack.
The above is mainly used in wooden toys. Generally speaking, wooden blocks are quite resistant to fall. Hemu is the best and most practical considering cost performance.
