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.
Bead threading is a universally favourite pastime with young children, but irritability soon sets in if threading difficulties are encountered and the repetitive movement is held up. In Kiddicraft Threading Beads this problem has been entirely overcome. These big wooden beads have large holes and the threading lace is long and thick. There is a two-inch, stiff tag on each end of the lace, long enough so that, when it is pushed through a bead, the end projects far enough to grasp easily.
