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.
