I have four children, 15 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, and nothing pleases me more than seeing their happy faces while they figure out how to put an easy wooden train together.

The toys that are around today are not of the same caliber as toys of yesteryear. Many of today's toys focus on trends, neat gadgets and are no more than glorified commercials for cartoons. Carol Lee Cantin has her own ideas of engaging a child's mind -- none of which involve a television.
"We have adorable and safe wood toys," Cantin says of the products she offers on her site, http://www.EasyWoodenToys.com. "We have chosen wooden toys for boys and girls alike; toys that are fun and educational."
The toys that are available in the contemporary toy store setting are based upon movie or television tie-ins and have almost no educational merit. Cantin's store deviates from this notion and supplies families with puzzles, matching games and other wooden toys that will stimulate a child's imagination.
Cantin also launched http://www.WoodenToysBlog.com in conjunction with http://www.EasyWoodenToys.com. Her Wooden Toys Blog focuses on the benefits of wooden and educational toys, as well as provides information on the safe, non-toxic toys sold on her site.
As Easy Wooden Toys races towards its one year anniversary, Cantin laments on the strength of her products: "I have four children, 15 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, and nothing pleases me more than seeing their happy faces while they figure out how to put an easy wooden train together."
Cantin's message is clear: wooden toys are as exciting and stimulating as their cheap plastic, commercial counterparts; the only difference is that your child will walk away from the experience having used their minds and not having their imagination stifled by preprogrammed sounds and kung-fu grips.
