Wood is a durable material but also clearly a product of nature, with its ‘flaws’ & ‘blemishes’ from growing in nature. Do note that there will be pieces of wood toys in which you’ll find knots, moles, black spots, which are all a natural part of a wood toy. Just like how a human body might have its moles, spots & blemishes. A knot is where the wood is cut at a part where a branch would have grown out if it were left to grow. Black spots are a result of mineral deposits in wood etc. Black stripes are part of the pith tube & is where the wood will be darker that it’s surrounding parts etc. Learn to accept these as part of nature’s creation & embrace them as the uniqueness of the wood toy you bought.
