Small hands, small world..

Kids can use the toys for role playing and as props for drama and theatre scenes.

They learn how to make up their own stories and understand the basic building blocks of concepts of storytelling (E.g. the beginning, middle and end, setting a plot and characters that can engage them in the story telling. The toy gives support to the teacher or person with or teaching the child, and support to the child. As an older person, you can choose a theme and suggest what might happen next in the stories. Funny voices, unusual accents appreciated! The more fun you put in to bring it alive, the better.  However a child engages with the wooden toy it provides children with richer vocabulary of imagined and real language.

Wooden toys are ideal teacher’s tools for history lessons and everyday play. Children learn through play, while having fun. They can find out about the past and learn new vocabulary. They develop curiosity and inquire, which are good for problem solving skills, as they have a hands-on exploratory time.
