4. Ride-On Toys From Wishbone Design Studio
Wishbone bikes are the industry standard in wooden riding toys. Their 3-in-1 convertible balance bike grows with your child, transforming from a push trike to a small scooter, to a large balance bike.
Wishbone gets my vote because their company manifesto includes a declaration to “Sustainibilize Everything.” This has led to a bike made from 100 percent reforested birch plywood with a silicon seat and organic cotton bag, a “no plastic packaging” policy, a carbon emissions offset program which certifies them carboNZero (the company is based in New Zealand), and more.
