Beautiful Natural Toys – New in store

We have been restocking our shelves since Christmas and most of our new stock has arrived – here’s a glimpse for you

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 –
