BabyWombWorld Recently gifted us with a Tooky Toys DIY Race Car Set. Through the process of putting it all together, we were effortlessly creating timeless memories with wooden toys. There is something about wooden toys that takes me back into time. Right back into my childhood.
Did you know, that the earliest toys discovered by archaeologists were all made of wood. Wooden toys continued to be a common part of childhood for thousands of years, right through to own children’s lives.
I recently asked for some opinions on whether parents would choose wooden toys over plastic toys, and everyone who commented, expressed their love for wooden toys.
Question, if you had to choose between wooden or plastic toys for your kids, what would you choose and why? (Theres no right or wrong answer). . . I say wooden toys. Not because theres anything wrong with plastic toys. But simply because it takes me riiiiight back to my childhood. I love them because they are timeless. And they encourage imagination and interaction. I’ll be writing more about this Tooky Toys wooden set from @babywombworlds soon on the blog. . . . #babywombworld #tookytoys #kidstoys #woodentoys #educationaltoys #letthemplay #candidchildhood #timelesstoys
Tooky Toys DIY Race Car Set from BabyWombWorld
This is no ordinary wooden toy set. Its a DIY Race Car Set which can be built in many different ways. The entire set is wooden, including the tools. It also comes with an easy to follow instruction manual that could easily be followed. The instruction manual has beautifully captured pictures which helps along in the building process, unlike the usual DIY instruction manuals. Building each race car excited his imagination as he got closer to the final product.
Raising a child in a world where everything is digital and electronic, is tough. We are constantly looking for ways to keep our kids away from the tv, away from the tablet, and just play a little. Real play. Or build a little. Like building a Tooky Toys DIY Race Car. What I love about this set is that it’s not as easy as 1, 2, 3 nor extremely difficult, to build. It takes abit of time and patience and encourages families to build it together. This is what kept him going. He saw the pictures on the box and in the instruction manual and knew that the reward for his perseverance would be phenomenal.
Another great feature of this set is that you can build it in many different ways. My son had a bad habit of getting bored very quickly and then giving up. He has alot of half done jobs. For example, he draws pictures but doesn’t color them in. He grew comfortable with starting things and not finishing. The Tooky Toys DIY Race Car set helped my son to manage this old habit. You see, the set is designed in such a way, that you WANT to finish it, but, it takes abit of time. It therefore encourages persistence. There are so many different cars that you can build with just this one set and this is not only fun and educational, but it improves hands on skills and builds their imagination and creativity.
This set is pretty safe too. All the edges on each part is perfectly rounded, so there is no need to fear your kids being harmed. Furthermore, the Tooky Toys DIY Race Car Set has non-toxic paint and parts.
Creating timeless memories with wooden toys
We all got involved and we were all wowed by this amazing DIY set. My toddler was attracted to the beautiful bright colors of each piece, whilst hubby wanted to build it first himself, and I, well, I also wanted to build it myself. Fortunately neither of us got carried away and left it to our son to do the main building involved the first time around. What I enjoyed most about this process, is that it got us together and we got our hands and our imaginations working. We got together as a team. And while doing this, we were inevitably creating timeless memories with wooden toys.
It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg
Because wooden toys are such a timeless item to have, they usually cost an arm and a leg. And then we end up buying something else instead. The Tooky Toys range doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. These are quality wooden toys, not plastic with a wooden look. They are quality AND long lasting. In addition to the DIY Race Car Set, BabyWombWorld stocks a wide range of Tooky Toys for your children to choose from.
The DIY Race Car set is currently retailing for just R395. You can purchase your Tooky Toys DIY Race Car set from Baby Womb World.
