Posted on July 23, 2015 by Lubica Misevski | 0 Comments

If you would like to understand the benefits of buying wooden toys for your children? Or just understand the amazing collection that is on the market today, then this is the article for you.

At KidzInc, we love wooden toys, because well they just have that natural feeling that no other product on the market has. What you may not be aware of is just how far Wooden toys have come since the days we were playing with them as little ones. Those were the days, building towers knocking them over :)

One of the first of our collection that we would like to share with you is the Dynamo Dominoes from Hape. As you can see from the image below, these are not your ordinary dominoes. They are colourful and come with a bridge, rails, and spinner. The collection is a full set of 100 dominoes. They make for hours of fun, creating different paths, only to watch them tumble down.

There is no right or wrong answer; there is only creativity and fun. Wonderful for developing your child's fine motor skills, and cause and effect.



We are going to stick with the Hape brand for a second because they do make some of the coolest wooden toys on the market. This one we love, and while it is on the pricier side if you are looking for something special to add to your toy collection, this is it.

It is Hape Quadrilla the Challenger. This is simply an amazing toy as you can see below, where your child can build structures that marbles run down. Enabling them to bring their creations to life. Included are high-velocity funnels, curved rails, seesaw, accelerators, levelers and 50 marbles.

Wonderful for developing your child logic, reasoning, and imagination. Not to mention giving them endless amounts of fun.



Anyone for Croquet? This beautifully made little set from Hape is wonderful for child development. Developing their gross motor skills, maths skills, colour recognition, and social skills.



Now one for not for the land lovers. Hape Stormy Seas, a brilliant awards winning wooden toys game for children 3+. Your little one will need to use all of their strategy skills to keep this one from tipping over in the ocean.



Whilst our children would love to have one of each toy we sell in the house, we do not. However, we do have the little sister to the Hape Vibrant Guitar. The benefits of this one are obvious. They get to learn music, practice fine motor skills, and, of course, do family concerts.



Our daughter loves her ukulele, and we sure your little one would enjoy either equally depending on age.

For the artist in the family, or just as a learning and fun activity board this wooden easel from Hape is very versatile. Obviously painting, drawing, or writing with chalk are all possible. The wooden easel has compartments for everything, as well as the magnetic whiteboard. The whiteboard is great to stick letters, words, or numbers on and supplements as a teaching aid. It is of course also just good fun.

Height adjustable as well. Some of the best artwork in our home all started from a wooden easel.

 

But what about outdoors, well the Hape e-Off Roader is the perfect little wooden toy for this adventure.

 



Perhaps you are a fan of the game of thrones and after something a little more old world? When it comes to wooden toys, almost anything is possible. This fabulous little lionheart castle from Le Toy Van, with a drawbridge, turrets, pull-up portcullis, winch, ladder, and flags is a special toy. In terms of wooden toys, this should bring your little one our fun.

Great for role play and building imagination.

 



A winner of the right start best toys award is the Le Toy Van Mikes Auto Garage. It is a very retro, 1950’s wooden garage. Including a working up and down lift, Helipad for those getaways, two spiral ramps. The garage is mounted on a big race track, and should offer hours of fun for child and parents alike.



Now if your son or daughter likes Bob the Builder, then they are going to love this one. With Plantoys Robot Wooden Tool Box, they will fix the house in no time, and then moving on to build the very own cubby house. I can see it now.  

Brilliant for coordination, creative, fine motor skills as well as logic this wooden tool box will be a hit. Oh Yes, almost forgot, you can flip the whole set upside down and make a robot! What other wooden toys can you do that with?



The last of the wooden toys we would like to share with you today is the Tegu Future Magnetron Solar Station Magnetic Wooden Block Set. This is the future of wooden building sets. The 32 piece set has 14 unique shapes, a charging plug, magnetic wheels and a solar panel.

Your little one can build a magnet tank, junkyard crane, solar station, rock crane or whatever they can imagine. If you are new to Tegu, these little wooden blocks, are the type of quality of toy Steve Jobs would have built. Yes, they are that good. The whole range is wonderful, and you can click here to see them.

Magnetic wooden blocks, who would have thought?

The Magical Music of Hape Wooden Toys

Posted on October 09, 2014 by Lubica Misevski | 0 Comments

 

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.

Hape DIY Dream House For Boys and Girls

Posted on July 31, 2014 by Lubica Misevski | 0 Comments

Every little girl wants a dollhouse, and everyone wants a dream house. The desire to own our own home is very Australian and often referred to as the big Australian dream. After all though what is life with dreams? Let us introduce you to the Hape DIY Dream house.

Yes, we know a dollhouse that is also a dream house, and it is. It is a 3 level masterpiece; it is modern in design and measures in at 57cm high, 72cm wide, and 29cm in depth. Now this is going to surprise you, the furniture is uniquely magnetic. For anyone who has played with a dollhouse, you would know that putting everything in place, and knocking it all over the end is heartbreaking. It is usually when you are making that final adjustment, and moving the last piece.

The furniture is a 32 piece set, offering many design possibilities for you daughter or son, dad, or mum :). It is a work of art and includes three-split floors, bookshelves, kitchen cabinets, beds, fridge, showers, and living room furniture. It is complete dollhouse set.

What is brilliant about the dollhouse is its open design, as it allows your daughter to move around the furnishing easily. It lets your daughter play with dolls without obstruction or the need to be uniquely flexible :). The Haye DIY dream houses are beautifully designed and coloured. Another great feature is that the doll house is easily accessed from two sides, allowing for more than one child to play.. Nice feature.

There are three chalkboards so your daughter can draw flowers, doors, windows, and gardens. We love this feature, as it provides your little one with the ability to create and design. Four of the rooms are set, bath, bed, living, and kitchen, leaving the top 2 spaces completely free to create an art studio, gym, or office. Whatever their heart desires.

Because the design is open, your daughter can use her or his own dolls as well, and hold parties should the occasion arise? The Haye DIY dollhouse, of course, comes with a family of dolls, 6 pieces in total. Every piece is made with most amazing detail and to the highest quality, and will bring you and your daughter or son endless hours of fun.

I guess the important that we always ask when selecting toys, is how does this help develop your child. In this case it works on fine motor skills, creativity, focus, social skills and of course language skills through the story’s they tell themselves and you when playing with each piece.

You and your daughter will be very happy with the Haye DIY Dollhouse; it is just beautiful in design, easy to play with, and easy to love. You can see more by clicking here.
