These wooden toys by Karl Zahn are so beautiful and imaginative.  They include a set of 5 stacking crocodiles and a range of animals that come in pieces for you to build.  You can also interchange the animal parts to create new creatures.  But these toys aren’t just for play; they’d look equally great displayed in a nursery or even on an adult bookshelf.  My favourite is that little elephant although the stacking crocodiles are pretty cool too.

"colourful wooden stacking blocks""colourful wooden toy blocks""colourful wooden animal puzzle"I am very much a minimalist at heart and adore simple wooden toys that are left in their natural state or painted in just white or black.  The simpler they are and the less color they have, the better they look to me.  But once in a while there comes along a toy literally bursting with colour and I can’t resist.  This is one of those times.  These Raitti wooden toys have been created by designer Aino-Maija Metsola for Marimekko.  In true Marimekko style, there is bright colour everywhere and the graphics are are no less bold. My favourite is the animal adorned stacking blocks but the whole range is incredibly striking, don’t you think?

P.S. Have you entered my giveaway yet? You could win some beautiful French clothes of your choice.

Today I have a fantastic giveaway for you so read on…

"wooden toy kitchen"I have a very dear friend who is quite a bit older than me and she has 2 kids in their late teens.  I go over to her place often with my 4 year old who isn’t usually a fan of accompanying me to places where there are no young kids but this friend’s home is an exception.  Simply because my daughter always gets delightful wooden toys to play with and sometimes even gets to take a couple home.  My friend has saved many of her kids wooden toys from 15+ years ago because she loves them for the memories they hold and intends to one day pass them on to her grand kids.   That’s the thing with wooden toys, they never go out of fashion and can be played with from one generation to the next.

"wooden toys musical instruments"I too am a huge wooden toy fan and have kept all the ones that Anya has collected over the last 4 years.  I’ve perched them on some shelves in her room and for now they serve as colourful and fun decorations that bring splashes of colour to her room.  So I’m delighted to introduce you to the Wooden Toy Shop which as the name suggests, does nothing but wooden toys.  And I’ve teamed up with them to bring you a fantastic giveaway.  One lucky reader will win a £75 voucher to spend on whatever they like at the Wooden Toy Shop.  The choice is entirely yours.

"wooden stacking toys"The Wooden Toy Shop sell some of my favourite brands like Brio, Plan Toys and Janod.  They have toys, games and puzzles for babies, toddlers and older kids.  There’s a lot of choice so it doesn’t matter if you have a 1 year old or 7 year old, there’s something for every kid.  If the choice was mine, I think I’d go for one of their play kitchens or maybe even the BBQ set since summer is coming up but more importantly, what will you choose?
