First up in our pick of Favourite Ethical Gifts for Christmas is this lovely wooden toy collection of children jigsaws.
Your child will be attracted to the cheerful colours and the friendly animal shapes of the Lanka Kade jigsaws. I particularly like the fact that they’re not ‘just’ a rectangle flat board. The 3-D puzzles are more challenging than traditional jigsaws. You can either use the letters to guide the child or do it back to front with the letters hidden. You can use the letters as building blocks to prepare for reading. The chunky wooden toy pieces are easy for children of all ages to handle.
If you are careful about what toys come into your house, you can’t go wrong with a Lanka Kade wooden toy. These eco friendly products are all handmade by seven family-based companies with whom Lanka Kade has long term working commitments. Toys are designed in the UK and allow each supplier to use their individual knowledge and skills. Lanka Kade’s aims to provide continual employment throughout the year for each company, their families and their employees. Many of the Lanka Kade wooden toys are made from rubberwood sourced from exhausted rubber plantations that are replanted every 10 – 15 years.
The Lanka Kade jigsaws are currently on special at Natural Nursery, like this gorgeous wooden toy train is only £4.16.
