Building blocks are great for toddler's learning experience.

It is that time of the year again when our thoughts turn toward the holidays. It seems like Christmas decoration and toys are displayed in stores even before the children go back to school from summer break. So, in the keeping with Christmas ideas is an article about safe wooden toys as gifts. 

Sarah Baldwin, M.S. Ed., of Oompa children’s toys has spent most of her life promoting healthy play toys. “If a toy doesn’t meet my high standards for safety and play value, you won’t find it at Oompa.”

Whew! We can all sleep better at night thanks to this journalistic effort to answer a question that has plagued so many for decades - are wooden toys safe? Millions have lost sleep for so long pondering this crucial issue, especially the people who live on a planet where Christmas decorations are up five months before that holiday arrives. Those four Amish families can now purchase those wooden blocks for their 2022. Can you next delve into whether the Model-T is a safe vehicle, or whether rotary phones cause arthritis? This is the kind of hard-hitting journalism that evidently saved so many news outlets in Iowa and Wisconsin under Trimble's "leadership."
