Kiko Kids: Cool Japanese toys

"kiko kids wooden toys Japan"

I recently discovered Kiko, a new range of Japanese wooden toys for kids.  I say they’re wooden toys since they are but they’re not your everyday wooden toys.  For starters they’re beautifully designed with simplicity at their core.  Beyond that, the toys are made to encourage creativity and imagination in kids. 

The first is a set of 100 star shaped wooden dominoes called Tanabata.  They’re numbered and can be used in many ways including learning to count.  Next you’ve got 2 magnetic chalk boards with a car, traffic signals, trees and mountains.  Use the chalk to create your own world and place the little wooden pieces to complete your world.  Last is the tree canvas.  Draw and paint on it to customise it as you wish.  It’s also magnetic so you can stick photo’s, pictures and notes to create a unique work of art that can be displayed in your kiddies play space.

Created by Kaz Shiomi, Kiko toys are cool, they’re good looking and they’re great for creative and imaginative play. And to add to their list of glowing points, they’re reasonably priced too.  To get these Japanese toys head to Little Fashion Gallery where they cost from €19 with delivery from €9.
