"As a mom-pediatrician, I am very particular with my kids’ toys. I make sure that my 2 kids (2 year old boy and 5 year old girl) do not just play but also learn, construct and imagine. And the Manila Wooden Toys do just that. I had no reservations of buying from MWT online since I trust that the owners are 101% legit sellers. The toys are well-constructed, there is no sharp edge nor any wood that sticks out. Although the toys are made of wood, they are light as feather and kids who like to throw toys around are safe with these toys. Despite being painted with bold colors, MWT has no odor of paint at all, safe for kids who have allergies that can be triggered by strong odors. Will definitely recommend MWT to friends and colleagues."

""I’m impressed with the quality and the great workmanship of this wooden toy. I was expecting that the color will fade or get scratched after numerous “rough” play of my toddler (he’s a block tower destroyer, btw.), but it still looks good—great actually!""
