Classic wooden toys never fail to make an impression, and when made by the right toymakers, they can be cherished and passed down for years to come. Le Toy Van are one such brand who place their sustainability and ethical code at the top of their company values. Their wooden toys are not only beautifully crafted and built to last, but they are made from re-purposed Rubberwood trees that have reached the end of their rubber-giving lives and are a by-product of this natural process. Today, we’re sharing some of our top picks from Le Toy Van’s collection – perfect for ticking off this year’s Christmas shopping list!
Let's Play House!
A favourite game amongst children is playing families! With the help of a showstopping doll's house they can role play with their little doll family, or with their very own kitchen set and phone, they can play pretend as mum or dad - cooking dinner for their teddies and answering the phone to their favourite family member or friend for a catch up.
Let's play shop
A timeless game amongst little ones, playing shopkeepers, café owners, doctors and builders can be made even more fun with the right toys at hand! These sets from Le Toy Van feature everything children need to play their career of the day - all carefully tested to the highest safety standards and involving local kids in all stages of the creation process to make sure the job's done properly!
Do you know a little one who loves pizza, ice lollies, sausages or soft pretzels? Le Toy Van have a food crate for every food group - guaranteed to make this Christmas as "tasty" a treat as can be! More durable and sustainable than their plastic food toy counterparts, these wooden food sets are perfect for encouraging imaginative play.
TRANSPORT TO TREASURE
From the big red London bus to fire engines and racing cars, children love playing with any kind of toy that can go ‘vroom vroom’ around the room! Le Toy Van have a beautiful range of both retro and modern vehicles, designed to develop young skills as they roll and reverse for hours of fun.
Learning about all the incredible creatures we share this planet with is an important and exciting part of childhood. Why not make education more fun with a set of animal stackers?
