I’m a huge fan of Japanese toys for kids, especially wooden ones.  The Japanese somehow manage to take a piece of wood and turn it in to something so simple yet so beautiful.  Today it’s all about Chigo toys from Japan.  I’ve had my eye on these toys for a while and once you see them you’ll know why they’re so special.  I love the simplicity of the shapes and the combination of lots of natural wood with splashes of bold colour.  My favourite is the house shaped blocks set but the wooden bowling set is a goodie too.  You can buy the house blocks* from Gretel Home who ship worldwide or you can just admire the toys over at  And while you’re there, don’t miss the very cool wooden camera and play phone.
