Are Jenga Blocks Toxic?

  • 601 views

Jenga is not a game of chance, it is a game of choice and it’s also proven to be safe to be played both by children and adults.

Even the set rules that players need to follow are all safe and each player's welfare is taken into consideration.

The players are all aware of how to play the game and Jenga has the perfect mixture of fun and contradictions since it’s a competition between the players, but they all must cooperate efficiently to stay in the game. Eventually, a winner would emerge and the one that caused the tower to collapse is the loser.

The stars in this game are the wooden blocks that are made from high-quality Alder wood that’s non-toxic environmentally friendly, ammonia free, safe, and smooth surface. It has no bad smell, and the fine workmanship doesn’t have glitches.

Since your Jenga would be used very often, you could clean it and keep its tip-top condition.

How to clean your Jenga?

Use one part vinegar and two parts water to do this. Vinegar is non-toxic and a great disinfectant too.

Apply this mixture to the blocks. Use a spray to do this. Let the blocks naturally dry in air and the smell of the vinegar would disappear when the blocks are all dry.

Wooden toys are safe, natural, and durable. They are long-lasting too and another way to clean your Jenga is to follow this other way.

Keep it natural by using mild dish soap or other non-toxic multipurpose cleaners, diluted with water. Wood has a natural antibacterial quality so they will not be as affected by germs as compared to plastic toys.

Never soak or immerse wooden toys in the water and all you have to do is just spray, wipe with a cloth and warm water, then air dry. Wood is porous so a soaking might cause them to swell, balloon and change their shape.

Drying in the sun would be best as it could speed up the drying process and the sun is a natural way to kill more germs. Just make sure you don’t overexpose and overdry the blocks under the sun since it would be prone to brittle and might crack and might fade too.

You could also wipe them fray once in a while or check the manufacturer's care instructions.

After Thoughts

The inventor and the people behind Jenga meticulously ensured that the woods used are non-toxic and safe. Even the colored Jenga available now only uses non-toxic paint materials.

The Alder woods used in Jenga didn’t go through any chemical treatment at all and it maintains its all-natural quality in every piece of the Jenga blocks.

Everybody wouldn't be much safer except with wood material in a toy!

You can find Jenga on Amazon.
