All That Women Want
It was made for you!

 

 

We have been so impressed with these beautifully designed and sustainably manufactured toys from eco friendly company Hape whose motto is Love play. Learn.

 

Walk-A-Long Puppy

This cute little pull-along puppy has a big personality and is the perfect companion for new walkers as it can sit, stand or roll along beside your child on it's sturdy red wheels. It has a funny little wagging tail, moveable head and ears and can sit in several positions. Made by Hape, who specialise in traditional toys that are ecologically sound, whilst helping a child develop key skills, it is crafted from FSC-certified wood so you can be sure it has been created from sustainable sources too. For children aged 12 months +. RRP £14.95 from Harrods

 

Noah's Ark Pull Along Shape Sorter And Play Set

From the same collection as the cheeky little puppy above is this delightful pull along Hape Noah's Ark with the added play value of a shape sorter to post the animals into. Again it is manufactured sustainably and decorated with non toxic paints. Available from Babipur for just £17.50.

 

Hape Barn Play Set

Your little ones really will have hours of fun with this Barn Play set complete with farmer, tractor and animals. There are so many scenarios for them to create, discover and describe as they develop their fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and imagination and learn what happens on farms and how their food is produced. 16 pieces for children age 3+ Available from Babipur £24

 

Hape Scrible Maze

As children have fun using the cup to guide the marble through the maze and avoid the holes, they are actually learning maths, language and motor skills. This teacher approved puzzle from Hape can be used at different levels of difficulty depending on the size of the cup selected. Small cups make the game easier. The larger cup lets the marble roll more from side to side, requiring heightened concentration, so if a younger child plays with an older one, the younger player uses the small cup and the older player uses the large one. In this way, the degree of difficulty will be more balanced. Likewise, the less dominant hand can also be used to balance the playing field. Age 3+ from Fruugo £13.50
