Kids Cork

Lovely feel to cork

Kids Educational

When my kids were small, I put out lovely beech wood blocks for them to play with.

These blocks were handed down through the family.

Many of the relatives had played with them over time and we still have them for the younger members when they visit. They are still popular.

Cork Blocks! This is a little different to beech wood but the same concept. Toys that inspire and promote imagination

Shops don’t always sell the old-fashioned toys. So it is nice to find something different such as this cool pick on Amazon Japan.

The different textures and smell of cork are a wonderful introduction to children’s play environment. Sometimes it is nice to have toys that allow the child to express themselves in play rather than colours or sounds dictating the creativity. What do you think?
