I love wooden toys, I always have. They look great, and they are very hard wearing, which is good for us. Especially where Emily is involved, as she loves to put toys through there paces. Wooden toys encourage imaginative play, unlike battery operated toys children have to manually pull, shake, roll, rattle, turn or push the toys.
A few weeks ago we were asked if we would like to review a toy, from Wood and Wonder. After looking at the website and seeing the beautiful wooden toys of course I said yes. Emma is a mum of two who has launched a exciting range of wooden toys, designed to inspire imagination and creative play for babies and toodlers. Toys need to be fun, colourful and provide hours of entertainment while being educational for children. The range of toys include puzzles, activity toys, musical instruments and train sets which are all designed to provide endless hours of fun.
We were sent the traffic teaser to review, and I couldn't wait for it to come. When it arrived I wasn't disappointed, it is brightly coloured and very sturdy. At £12.95 I thought it was such good value for money. This toy is 24 months+ but at just 13 months, Emily manages perfectly.
I love the bright colours, most toys are blue or pink, so it is nice to get a gender neutral toy. Emily is obsessed with cars and other vehicles, so I knew she would love this. It has cute little vehicles, on the bottom which have a slideable element. Emily really enjoys to push the vehicals around and does it with ease. There is also wooden beads that you can push over metal loops which Emily enjoys doing too. It nurtures the fine motor skills in a playful way.
Emily has spent a good amount of time sitting on the floor playing with her new toy. She doesn't get bored of it which is a massive bonus, and she loves to try and move all the beads at once. I can see this toy growing with Emily, and it providing years of fun for her. You can follow Wood and Wonder on twitter and facebook to stay updated on the range of toys they have available.
