Lotus: Most commonly used to make wooden toys, the price is higher than pine, high density, heavier, uniform grain, fall resistant. Basswood: beige, light weight, no grain, durable, more expensive than the last two.
Basswood splint: Easy to cut, often used to make wooden puzzles.
MDF: Density board, easy to cut, brown, wood toys mixed with water (paint) part commonly used, cheap.
Beech: The grain is uniform, and the cross section is a little like rice grains. Little by little, the price is higher than lotus wood and it is also resistant to falling.
Rubber wood: Toys made of this wood are mostly exported, mainly for very young children. It feels very good and safe.
In addition, imported wood is generally more expensive than domestic wood, which is better. Whether it is resistant to falling depends on whether it is dried before processing, and drying is the time grasp. If the time is not well controlled, many times the wood will crack.
Wooden toys are mainly used in the above several. In general, wooden blocks are pretty durable. Considering the cost performance of lotus is the best and most practical.
