Shopping for Thanksgiving toys is tough!

Compared to other holidays, like Halloween and Christmas, there are far fewer toys made for Thanksgiving — and that’s probably a good thing.

After all, Thanksgiving is all about being grateful for what you already have.

Give thanks not just on Thanksgiving Day, but every day of your life. Appreciate and never take for granted all that you have.

– Catherine Pulsifer

(I’m thankful you decided to visit Oddblocks today, by the way!)

With a little bit of imagination, lots of toys fit right into your Thanksgiving festivities. Here’s a collection of my best ideas for Thanksgiving-themed wooden toys. (Wooden toys are my favorite kind.)

Even better? Most are appropriate for the entire autumn season, so they won’t be collecting dust in the attic for 51 weeks out of the year.
