When buying a felt Christmas tree, be sure to go for those made of high-quality felt fabric. The ornaments should be durable yet stick well on the Christmas tree without falling off. Also, it should be made of safe material that is odorless and soft. Some of the cheaper versions of the felt Christmas tree may have accessories that are easily pulled off by toddlers so be sure to buy those with hooks and loops sewn onto the felt material tree rather than glued.
We do recommend the felt Christmas tree for young kids such as toddlers as it is a good opportunity for them to practice hand-eye coordination and developmental skills.
