Kids won’t eat their beans? Maybe not, but now they can play with them to their heart’s content.
Beautiful to look at and lovely to hold, these wooden balancing beans from Beyond 123 are one toy I wouldn’t mind my kids leaving all over the coffee table. These beautiful beans are made from beech and inside each one is a weighted steel ball which helps them to balance on their end or on top of each other.
Measuring between five and ten centimetres in diameter they are big enough for even smallish hands to manage, so you can start your mini-engineers practising early!
If, like me, you’re fantasising about replacing everything plastic in your house with classic and beautiful toys that stand the test of time, see our previous posts on our favourite wooden toys.
The beans are US$62.95 from Fat Brain Toys, who will ship internationally.
