If you love the feel and look of well built and beautifully crafted wooden toys. Then you are likely to love Hape Toys, who make all the toys from wood or bamboo.
The craftsmanship in these toys are amazing, and we wanted to share just a few designs with you today.
Our very fist purchase was the Hape Guitar; we bought this for our daughter, and we could not be happier with it. Oh Yes, she likes it too. It comes in either blue or red; we went with red, and it is gorgeous little guitar. Given the quality of this product it is also a great price at $36.99.
We like it so much we bought this Hape Rock and Rhythm band for our son. As you can see below the Rock and Rhythm band by Hape is one of the funkiest little drum, cymbal and rhythm makers around. This one is a Christmas present and as such we have not unpacked it yet. But we have peeped at it as you do, and we think he is going to love it. Dad will probably play with it too.
Now this one we have not seen as yet, but the picture tells the story well. It is Hape Grand Piano, now who didn’t want a piano as a kid? In fact for some reason I still think I can play the piano, and I have never had a lesson. It is a 30 key small but Grand Piano, built just right for those little fingers, but still making big sounds. Hang on perhaps we should not say that :) We are sure they will be beautiful sounds.
It is a great size at a Length: 19.69, Width: 20.47 and Height 23.62 inch’s. So you can have a music recital almost anywhere.
But for the little musician there is also a wonderful Hape Early Melodies Xylophone. It has a beautiful rainbow design and is made with love. It is great for starting the love of music from an early age and wonderful for your little ones early development.
Next in the Hape Musical Range is the Melodies Pound and Tap Bench. Little wooden hammer included! This gorgeous little toy is constructed from wood and metal and is a combination hammer bench and the musical xylophone. When you place the balls over the Xylophone and pound them, they roll onto the Xylophone and music ensues.
What a wonderful way to learn about music and cause and effect at the same time.
We love music, and we are pretty sure everyone does?? The wonderful aspect about teaching music to our kids, is that it develops them in so many ways whilst also being enjoyable.
These musical wooden toys develop dexterity, hand-eye co-ordination, logic, and matching. Also spatial relationships and critical thinking, as well as an understanding of cause and effect.
It is hard to believe something that is so enjoyable can also be so beneficial. Then again maybe it is not?
We have just spoken about the Hape Musical Toys today, but there full range is just a lovely, and you can see it by clicking here.
We feel music is a wonderful gift, and if you are thinking about a Christmas or Birthday present for that special little one. Well, we know you and they will love Hape.
