I often dream about decluttering my house of all-bright plastic toys and blocks and replenishing it with modern and basic doodads to intrigue my wee one's imagination. What I like most about bland natural wood toys is they can easily blend into a neutral adult setting without causing too many eye sores.
This simple $26 carved wooden horse walks himself down a 14-inch plank only to do it all over again. Intended for tots, I'd happily buy this trinket for my coffee table. Adults can enjoy the endless addictive entertainment it provides just as much as the youngsters. If horses don't suit your fancy, choose from penguins, turkeys, ladybugs, ducks, rabbits, and more.
