It’s no secret that KidKraft is known for wooden toys. But if you’ve ever wondered exactly what goes into a KidKraft toy, you’re not alone. More and more parents are researching what goes into their kids’ toys in an effort to make eco-friendly choices, avoid potential health hazards, and choose durable toys that last.

So what are KidKraft toys made from? In this post, we’re covering some of the most common materials used in our bestselling dollhouses, play kitchens, train sets, playhouses, and outdoor playsets.

Solid Wood

We use cedarwood in all of our outdoor playsets and playhouses due to its strength, sustainability, and natural rot-resistance. Our wood comes pre-treated with a safe water-repellent that helps avoid premature weather damage to your playset.


Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF)

All KidKraft dollhouses and play kitchens feature a wood frame, which usually consists of some solid wood pieces and MDF (medium-density fiberboard). MDF is a high-quality engineered wood product that is known for its durability as it’s significantly denser and stronger than other engineered wood products like particleboard. We only use CARB-compliant MDF, meaning our MDF has been tested to ensure it meets the strictest safety standards when it comes to emissions of VOCs and formaldehyde.


Plastics

Although wood provides the main structures for our best-selling toys, many of our toys also feature plastic pieces and accessories. Because kids’ safety is our top priority, we only plastics that are free of BPA and PVC. In fact, we only use polypropylene, which is largely considered to be the most stable plastic (i.e. the least likely to leach chemicals) and the safest for human health.


Oil-Based Paints

Even the paint on your kids’ toys is something to consider! We only used oil-based, non-toxic paints, and of course, our paints are completely free of lead and other hazardous materials.
