Fir Tree Stacking TowerRaduga Grez £25.50
Use the fir tree stacking tower as a set in the family play. Or send your favorite doll for a walk in the "forest" – let her get lost, meet new friends, have adventures, and at the end be sure to come home to tell her stories and drink some tea.
To make our toys beautiful and safe, we use natural, ethically harvested wood. Lime is dried outdoors for 2 years, then planed and hand-finished. The pyramid is painted without the use of lacquer. This is how we retain the tactility and texture of natural wood.
How to play:
- Disassemble and assemble in different ways
- Lay out the pieces on a plane and assemble a picture from them
- Play in a magical forest, populate it with little toys, arrange Christmas for them, decorate the Christmas tree with ribbons and mom's beads
- Roll the parts like wheels
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.
