Butterfly Wing CarRaduga Grez £16.58
The Butterfly Wing car fits comfortably in your hand, it is not heavy and stable. Let the car roll down the slide from the books. Or roll it on your child’s shoulders and back, making a relaxing massage at the end of a day. Stay together, feel that very moment – it won't be repeated, but that's the beauty of it.
Our toys are made of natural, carefully sun-dried linden wood and coated with safe paints without the use of lacquer. Thus, they retain the natural, velvety texture of the wood.
How to play:
- Build a track of books and cubes and drive a car on it
- Make a cozy garage out of a rolled-up blanket or an empty box
- Roll the car around the room, keeping it on the surface
- Make a long-distance ride, for example, to the kitchen for cookies
Why we love blocks
Like puzzle pieces, blocks fit together. Unlike puzzle pieces, they can do so in a variety of ways. Learning to predict what fits where is the work of many years. Which pieces will I need? Do I have enough? The expert can see simply by turning the blocks over in her mind.
Small world play
Is your castle missing a section of wall? Does your railway need a tunnel? Never fear! Here is your humble set of blocks to the rescue. Infinitely versatile, blocks provide the canvas upon which to paint your stories.
Red, blue, red, blue; big, small, big, small. So much of early mathematical thinking is about making patterns. Can you see how it's a small skip from here to odds and evens or the two-times table? A set of blocks like the one above can even illustrate a number's relative size and how it can be combined to make ten.
