Darling Fergus can’t keep his hands off Sweet William’s trains. He also can’t keep them out of his mouth. Whenever I turn my back, I hear poor William cry, “Don’t eat the trains, Fergus!”
William’s Maple Landmark trains are quite safe. They’re made from wood and are colored with non-toxic dyes and paints. Still, they’re not meant for babies: They have small wheels and magnets that will break off when the trains are mishandled with enough force. I’m nervous about those pieces ending up in Fergus’ mouth.
I decided Fergus needed his own train and was happy to spot this baby-friendly push toy by Manny & Simon in a local shop. It’s made in the USA from recycled wood and is painted with non-toxic, zero-VOC paint. Fergus likes it, and so does William. I guess this will be a good occasion to work on sharing!
