Moving Sale

Moving Sale A5

Moving with the winds

As many of you will know The Honeyclock has been for sale since February.  Our buyer doesn’t seem to have found their way to us just yet however we are still hopeful they are on their way.  In the mean time we have discovered we will need to vacate our current premises and so our last trading day in our current light filled shop will be Saturday 14 June, that’s about 6 weeks away.
If you are not on our mailing list or our ‘friend’ on Facebook, or following our ‘blog’ and you want to stay up to date with where we move to please send us your email address and we can add you to our ‘moving notification’ list and keep you fully informed and up to date with our movements.
In the meantime make sure you come in and see us and stock up on all your favourite goodies while stocks last

Natural, wooden TOYS

We need to be careful with children’s environments – including the colours, sounds and toys which surround them – so as not to hinder healthy development. 

Similarly, we should pay great attention to the quality of the materials of children’s toys.  In sympathy with the developing form of the child’s inner organs, play materials from the organic realm are particularly appropriate.  The variety of their shapes, the quality of their surfaces, their natural density and weight are unmatched.  Natural materials greatly extend the range of experience and enhance children’s sensitivity… even the simplest objects provide children with food for the imagination.

In addition to the things which we find ready-made in nature, we can add those objects which have been formed by the human hand through craft work.  Bearing in mind the importance of the child’s unfolding imagination, we should try to make such toys as simple and as beautiful as possible.‘ (from Toymaking with Children by Freya Jaffke)

We have a  wonderful selection of natural toys to enrich children’s imagination and play and are currently adding them to our web site, have a look and feel free to share them –
