Nothing quite beats a toy made from just wood. They look so traditional, come with fine detail and I love the smell of the fresh wood. The majority of wooden toys do not require batteries and they are also very strong and sturdy, I would been say unbreakable. Willowbee wooden toys and gifts sell a fine range of wooden toys which includes everything from small play sets and figures right up to big play kitchens and ride on cars.
Izebella had been giving some of the Willowbee toys a good thorough testing and here is what she thinks.
First up are two wooden flutes. Now little Izebella loves her music. She enjoys songs (especially Frozen) and also loves her musical instruments of which she already has a few small things. She often gets them all out and gives them out to us all and demands we join in her little musical band. Therefore these flutes make a great addition to her growing instrument collection.
The flutes seem very strong and solid unlike the plastic kind. They come in several other colours too and they both come with animal figures. The bigger one has a slightly better sound than the smaller version which can sound a little muffed (if that's the right word!) at times. Izebella loves them and tries her best to make as much noise as she possibly can with them. She will then try and get everyone else to have a go and usually me being the last meaning I am left with a flute full of mixed dribbles LOVELY!.
Anyway great little starter instruments. Strong and sturdy and can be loud at times. Lovely bright colours too and a perfect size for small hands.
Next a beautiful little wooden toaster. Izebella sees my toaster so is well aware of how they work. Bread goes in, toast comes out. She was very happy to have one of her own.
These wooden toasters come with a choice of pink or green colours and come with 2 pieces of bread/toast. It has a dial and toast eject handle just like the real thing. Toast can get put in and popped out with the handle.
Not too sure if Izebella has quite grasped the concept that the toast is not real as it's constantly in her mouth. Or maybe she is just taking advantage of the whole fun role play experience which this toy offers.
Our final exciting wooden product comes in the for, of a unique wooden creative play set. There are several to choose from including Pirate, Indian, beauty and a doctor. Izebella has a doctor kit. Her kit came in its own metal carry case
The case has the image of a rather happy looking doctor and a few furry animal patients.
Inside the case is everything little Izebella needs to become a young doctor and take care of her own furry friends (teddies).
All of these lovely things are inside and each one of them is made purely from wood. I should also add they each of these 10 individual items also came carefully wrapped up in tissue paper too.
There is also a white doctor hat bearing a Red Cross. Obviously the hat is not made from wood but all the doctor items are, even the plasters.
It's a lovely little set. The scissors even open up like real ones and the pill bottles have removable screw on lids. It's amazing that these things are all created from wood alone.
This is the doctors hat!
Amazing little fun kits which are just right for toddlers. Nothing they can harm themselves with and pretty impossible to break anything. Izebella now puts on her hat and treats us all like her patients.
The kits start at £18.95 and can be purchased from many leading toy shops along with the other wooden products above. Further information can be found at the Willowbeewebsite.
