Inspire creative play with our range of wooden toys for 5-year-olds
Research shows that plastic toys are over-stimulating for kids — with all the flashing lights, loud noises, screens and unnatural colours, plastic toys eliminate the opportunity for children to use their imagination. Wooden toys, on the other hand, are open-ended. Children can make what they want of them — for example, a set of wooden blocks can be used to build enormous towers, cities, towns and castles.
What are the benefits of wooden toys for 5-year-olds?
Simply add a simple wooden dolls and the opportunities are endless. Plus, there’s a sense of achievement in building up the blocks and a thrill from knocking them down at the end of the day.
