Toys For Christmas – Wooden Play Toys

The Chalet Dollhouse

The Chalet Dollhouse 

Wooden toys are still a firm favourite with both parents and young children and this wonderful new Chalet Dollhouse from Plan Toys is an exceptionally well-made product.

Fashioned from sustainable rubberwood, the dollhouse is made up of two separate units, which can be arranged together in a variety of ways to create a large play area for children.

The dollhouse comes complete with a selection of furniture and accessories and when we put it to the test with a number of under ten year olds, the response was emphatically positive. In fact they couldn’t get enough of the domestic bliss!

The dollhouse is made up of 2 units – the larger of the two with 3 levels and the smaller unit made of 2 levels. Both can be arranged separately or combined to make a single large unit.

It also comes with 5 sets of furniture for the kitchen, bathroom, living room, master bedroom and children’s bedroom and is suitable for children aged 3 and over.

Our young testers found many creative ways to put the structure together and it certainly helped foster their confidence and logical skills. 

Measuring a total length of 81cm x 36cm x 60 cm this is the ideal toy that certainly gave our kids hours of pleasure and is sure to do the same for yours too!

The Chalet Dollhouse from Plan Toys is available now with a RRP of £169.95.

My First Play World – Fire Brigade Large Play Set

A fantastic set of wooden play figures all packaged in a fire station carry case proves to be another excellent toy for pre-school children.

Encouraging infants to use their imagination and coming equipped with a series of accessories, this beautifully crafted set is a million miles away from the high tech gadgetry so many youngsters are obsessed with and hark back to toys from a generation gone by.

Featuring firefighters, a fire engine, an axe, ladder, tree, hydrant, bucket, extinguisher and fires, all fashioned in lovely beech wood and painted in vibrant colours. It is no surprise that this set was chosen by the “slow toy movement” as being one of the best 7 toys recognized for being well made, inspiring the mind and having significant play value.

Suitable for 18+ months this is another lovely toy that comes highly recommended – both by us and our team of young testers!

My First Play World – Fire Brigade Large Play Set is available now with a RRP of £29.99
