Great Danish

High School Musical product tie-ins? Forget it. Pokémon? So 2001. Bratz dolls? Please.

Your little one prefers the ecofriendly Aspekts line of wooden toys from Denmark, thank you. From vibrantly colored parrot swings to adorable giraffe scooters to colored pencils in every hue, these toys will engage kids from 6 months to 6 years.

Best part? You can rest easy knowing that each piece is crafted from responsibly harvested wood.

And that’s not something you’ll see on television.

Available at Dig Og Mig, 150 Seventh Avenue, at Charles Street (212-675-6112 or digogmignyc.com).
