Kiddicraft WOODEN TOYS
Children are sensitive at a certain age to texture, weight and form in their playthings. Carefully chosen colours, contrasting with plain surfaces, also have special. All these features can be combined in wooden toys in a way that cannot always be achieved with plastics or metal. Consequently every child should have wooden toys of good design, amongst other playthings. The range of Kiddicraft Wooden Toys includes playthings to interest children actively moving about, and also for them to enjoy during hours of quiet constructive play. There are push toys and pull toys and toys to put together on the floor. Just as with the Kiddicraft Toys of plastics materials, care is taken to make these wooden toys of some educational value in the course of happy play. Kiddicraft Wooden Toys are made of selected material, beautifully finished in non-toxic colours and clear lacquer. Metal parts have a rust-resistant finish. Each gift box is labelled according to the age at which a child will most appreciate the playthings.
The drawing and writing positions best liked by young children are kneeling on the floor or standing to an upright surface. Kiddicraft Wall Blackboard provides a permanent working surface which the child should be encouraged to use in preference to ordinary wall surfaces. The blackboard carries the script alphabet across the top, and a shelf along the bottom is convenient for the initial supply of chalks also provided. Panel of strong plywood, frame and shelf of clear-lacquered beech. Overall size 37" x 19". Screw nails provided, for easy fixing.
