These brightly coloured wooden building blocks from German toy maker Haba come in fantastical shapes that will send your child’s imagination into the world of fantasy..
Fagus is the Latin word for beech, and these wooden vehicles are expertly made with complex moving parts – they have real axles, can be hand steered, and each piece is interlocked and held together with doweling. No nails or screws – just wood!
The Playscapes collection from Hape is a set inspired by the benefits of construction for cognitive development. These are real life construction toys for kids – to encourage building, which in turn boosts mathematical thinking, planning and reasoning.
The Taksa Toys range are a unique, amazing mix of building and educational pieces that we absolutely love for their simplicity and design concepts. It’s fantastic that such a young company has created 3 completely different sets in such a short time!
Window blocks are a real open-ended material for kids to play with. By this we mean there are no rules to follow, no expectations, no specific problems to solve, and no pressure to produce a finished product.
We totally love Kinetic Sand! It feels amazing, it provides endless creative fun whilst stimulating your child’s imagination and developing manual dexterity – AND there’s NO MESS
It’s great to see the enthusiasm that construction equipment toys bring to kids – we’ve seen ours play for hours building (and knocking down!). Building is a challenge and children learn what works by doing things for themselves and letting their imagination run free.
