MeskoToys - Educational and Eco-friendly Wooden Toys
MeskoToys makes educational and eco-friendly wooden toys
In an effort to offer eco-friendly natural wooden train toys, most, if not all, of MeskoToys’ train tracks are made in Michigan out of "Tree-cycled"
MeskoToys has designed wooden train track pieces that are both fun and educational. Starting around age two or three, children often develop a love for vehicles, especially trains, providing parents with a great opportunity to add an educational aspect to this “game.” This can be done by slowly introducing advanced train track pieces such as switches and crosses, showing the child how they fit together, explaining the difference between left and right and gently encouraging the child to develop his or her own layouts. The child will then eventually progress from playing with the trains to focusing instead on putting sophisticated train track layouts together; in other words, a puzzle with a purpose. MeskoToys feels that this transition can be a very important step in the development of children and can help them learn how to plan, visualize things in space, develop their sense of imagination and think outside of the box. Ultimately, the company aims to keep its products as affordable as possible and give every child a chance to have fun and learn while minimizing its impact on the environment.
