Hands up if you love wooden toys as much as we do, if you have both arms waving, you’re in for a treat today!
German brand Hess-Spielzeug knows wooden toys like no other – creating a range of toys suitable from as early as those first few days of a tiny newborn to early childhood and beyond.
Hess-Spielzeug use high quality European wood such as beech and maple from renewable resources to create these gorgeous and handmade toys. All paints and stains are non-toxic, so there’s no need to panic should your babe’s mouth come in contact with the toy.
A fabulous gift and great for littlies are these Hess-Spielzeug rattles. The interlocking rings of the Motorik Rattle (pictured top) are not only interesting to the eye but make a charming sound when waved about. Smaller babies are sure to love the smooth shapes of the Hedgehog and Elephant rattles. The Zoo Animal wooden book (pictured top) is a beautiful way to introduce books to little ones and shows off an impressive menagerie including a zebra, bear and chameleon.
Older children who enjoy problem solving will delight in piecing together the Frog Puzzle and then there is the Shape Sorter – excellent for developing skills – and the magnificent Toy Rainbow longs to be sorted and stacked day in, day out.
