Wooden Toy Shops for Kids in Ottawa

Wooden toys have picked up popularity in the last few years and there’s good reasons for it – they’re more sustainable, sturdier and just plain beautiful to look at. 

Here are fourteen wooden toys shops for kids based right here in Ottawa, Ontario!

Wooden toy shops are listed in alphabetical order. 

We love wooden toys in this house. While we still have plastic toys, they never feel, look or last the same way wooden toys do. 

Wooden toys have taken a rise over the years and for good reasons – it’s a sustainable base material, durable when made right and well-made pieces can quickly become heirlooms to pass down through generations.

I could talk forever about wooden toys but let’s leave that for another day and get down to it – here are fourteen small shops based out of Ottawa creating amazing wooden toys.
