Toy Materials That Will Help You Prevent Mold Problems

Written by 

7177-101413-gs7177Toys for kids are made from many different materials. The common materials used to manufacture many toys include plastic, wood, paper, and fabric. Some of these materials allow for the growth of mold, while others are just harder for mold to attach to the surfaces. Mold is a harmful organism that can cause serious health problems for your children.

Toy materials that are easy for mold to develop on:


Since paper is a product of trees, it can easily be infested with mold. If you do have toys with stickers, make sure that you keep them in dry areas and keep your eye on them for mold issues.


There are many kids’ toys made from fabrics or that have some parts made from fabric. Fabric toys should be kept dry to avoid mold growth. However if they do get wet, make sure to dry as soon as possible.


Mold will easily grow on wooden toys if they are exposed to moisture. As long as you keep these toys dry you should be able to avoid mold issues.

Toy materials that do not favor the growth of mold:


Mold doesn’t easily grow on plastic. However, it can still grow on plastic over time, so it is important to make sure that you keep an eye out for it.

While toys made of organic materials are more susceptible to mold growth, all toys have the potential to harbor mold. Therefore, it is important for you to try your best to keep your children’s toys dry and continuously keep your eye out for potential mold growth.
