The most common materials for wooden toys sold on the domestic market are pine, lotus, basswood, basswood plywood, MDF (wood composite board, commonly known as density board), beech, and rubber wood.

Pine wood: The cheapest (imported wood is more expensive), lighter, appears white, has a larger grain size, and is more prone to cracking than other wood materials.

Lotus wood: It is most commonly used as a wooden toy, with a higher price, higher density, heavier weight, even texture, and resistance to falling. Basswood: Beige yellow, light in weight, without wood grain, resistant to falling, and more expensive than the previous two.

Basswood plywood: Easy to cut, commonly used to make wooden puzzles.

MDF: Density board, easy to cut, brown, commonly used in wooden toys with water mixed (painted) parts, at a low price.

Beech wood: The grain is even, and the cross-sectional area is a bit like rice grains. Bit by bit, the price is higher than that of lotus wood, and it is also resistant to falling.

Rubber wood: Toys made from this type of wood are mostly exported, mainly for young children, with a very good feel and safety.

In addition, imported wood is generally more expensive and better than domestic wood. Whether it is resistant to falling or not depends on whether it has been dried before processing, as drying is a matter of timing. Time is not well controlled, and many times the wood will crack.

There are mainly several types of wooden toys used inside. Overall, wooden building blocks are quite resistant to falling. Considering cost-effectiveness, lotus wood is the best and most practical.
